Malaysia Polling Day - March 8

The Star reported today that the Election Commission has set Feb 24 for parties to nominate candidates for 12th general election; Malaysia goes to the polls on March 8.

Parliament was dissolved yesterday, ending weeks of speculation.

Malaysians will be asked to give a fresh mandate to the government of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, who will lead the Barisan Nasional into the election for a second time.

Candidates will vie for 222 parliamentary seats and 505 state seats. Except for Sarawak, the assemblies of all states were also dissolved Wednesday after the mentris besar and chief ministers sought consent from their respective rulers.
