Previous National Elections Congress Dissolution, Nomination and Voting Dates!


The 15th national election is coming up! According to experts, the 15th National Election will be held in November.


According to the Malaysian Electoral Act, the Prime Minister has the right to decide the date of dissolution of the National Assembly, although this date must be approved by the Head of State. A national election must be held within 60 days of the dissolution of parliament. Although it is the right of the Prime Minister to dissolve the Parliament, the State Ministers of each state also have the right to follow the dissolution of the State Assembly.


Malaysia (Malaya) has held its first general elections since independence in 1957, starting in 1959, and the 13th Parliament was dissolved on April 3, 2013, the latest dissolution of any Parliament.


The number of campaign days between the nomination day and the voting day was the lowest in the 2004 election, with only 8 days of campaigning, and 35 days in the 1959, 1964, and 1969 elections.


According to the information of the dissolution of the parliament, many elections fall in April and May, because the weather is moderate, without heavy wind and rain, which is ideal for holding elections.


Only in 1999 did the election fall in November, and this year, for the second time, it will fall in November.
