Taib finally blew the whistle on the dissolution of the State Assembly-but he did it his way! He announced that the State Assembly will be dissolved-but only on Monday! It is like a whistle to start a race in 10 min! What a wait! Usually it should be a whistle to start a race immediately! Is it to give more time to his 2 BN bosses time to wind up their current campaign in Sarawak?
Anyway the EC will take till Wed to announce the timeline of the elections-its nomination and polling dates. If the timetable seems to have been brought forward a bit from popular expectation the more important possibility is that there could be an attempt to rush the elections to advanatge the incumbent party. Already some PBB lawmakers suggested to keep the campaign period to the legal minimum of 7 days, which contrast to the usual 10 days in Sarawak.
