In a strange twist of event the Election Commission chief suggest that the 13th General Elections will be in May or June-it is not the poll date suggested-but the suggestor himself that is the news! Since when has the EC been given the job ti decide pol dates? The domineering ruling party decide everything as though it is their right-actually the right of 1 man! Under such condition: would it be difficult to guess if the poll dates thus far benefit the people or the ruling party! Poll dates have been chosen in odd timing to throw the Opposition off guard eg a former PM chosed to dissolve Parliament in the middle of a Budget debate! Theoretically the EC decided the poll dates after the legislature is dissolved-they have the flexibility to decide it within 60 days and they also decide the campaign period. Strange enough: where the ruling party have a good chance to win the oll come very quick after the dissolution of the legislature. If the BN’s chances are not so good the poll can be delayed till the end of the 60 days! The hand of the ruling party is quite visible to many people.
