Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak dissolved Parliament on Wednesday April 3, paving the way for the 13th general election.
The EC said all 222 parliamentary and 505 state seats will be decided on the same day.
Voters in Sarawak will not elect a new state assembly, as the current state government still has three years of its mandate left after the polls in 2011.
