The six states that will hold their elections this year need to discuss suitable dates for the dissolution of their state legislative assemblies, says Negeri Sembilan Menteri Besar Aminuddin Harun.
In this regard, Aminuddin said that he, Selangor Menteri Besar Amirudin Shari and Penang Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow, were in talks to meet with the menteris besar of Kedah, Kelantan and Terengganu.
"We are discussing meeting our counterparts in Kelantan, Terengganu and Kedah to decide on the dates.
"Then we will inform and discuss with the Election Commission regarding the suitable dates to hold the elections so that there is no overlap," he told reporters in Seremban yesterday.
Aminuddin, who is also Negeri Sembilan Pakatan Harapan chairman, agreed with Chow that June was the best time to hold the state polls.
"If we dissolve (the state assembly) in May, the people go to the polls in June. So I share the same view with him that the elections can be held around that time.
"This is also to give other parties the opportunity to prepare and hold their election campaigns," he said.
Aminuddin previously said that the Negeri Sembilan state legislative assembly was expected to be dissolved in May to pave the way for state polls.
