Malaysia will hold its next general election on 19 November, the Election Commission announced today.
The commission said that candidate nominations will take place on 5 November, providing for a 14-day campaigning period.
Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced the dissolution of Parliament on 10 October, setting a time limit for 60 days to hold the pending General Election.
More than 20 million Malaysians are expected to vote for a new government, following more than two years of political turmoil that led to a snap election.
All 222 parliamentary seats will be up for grabs during the general election, along with the state legislative seats of Pahang, Perlis and Perak.
Another state seat in Sabah – Bugaya – will also conduct a midterm election on the same day after a by-election there was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
