The expectation that the State Assembly will dissolve later due to Taib’s reported plan to visit Mecca, has given way to a possible earlier-than-expected election! Taib has reportedly denied that he plan another trip to Mecca next week, which he usually do before an election, giving rise to media frenzy that the Assembly may be dissolved tomorrow when Taib promised to make an announcement-probably in conjunction with the joint visit by the PM & DPM to Sarawak tomorrow. Should the Assembly be dissolved by end of this month the poll will fall in the middle of April, with nomination 10 days before that.
Allegations against Taib have reached an international audience. — file pic
