Partyforumseasia: Just three weeks before the parliament would have been dissolved by law, Prime Minister Najib Razak has at last announced the dissolution – with the (expected) blessings of the King. Political Malaysia feels relieved. The elections will probably be scheduled April 20th or 27th.
Why Najib was hesitating so long will remain speculation according to the observer’s preference. For the BN-camp it will be caution and extended preparation for a victory, for the PR-camp a sign of weakness. In any case it is noteworthy that the BN government has already showered the country with several cash schemes, whereas the opposition PR could only make promises.
