WILL THE GENERAL ELECTIONS BE HELD IN MARCH 2008?

Malaysians seems to be guessing the date our PM Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi will dissolve Parliament and the 12th General Elections will be held. Since the Election Commissioner himself had announced that we can expect the elections to be held anytime now had send everyone guessing for the date.

Coffee shop talks seems to indicate March as the date our Prime Minister will hold the general elections. But there are reports to indicate which March, is it 2008 or 2009.

However, with mounting problems from rising cost of consumer goods to Indian community problems, until and unless some form of concerted efforts are made towards resolving these problems, it is extremely unlikely that our Prime Minister will dissolve Parliament unless he wants to take a great gamble.

Just fearing Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's entry into politics, is just impossible to digest. Its true that Anwar has many 'worms to open up' since he was part of the Barisan Nasional leadership earlier. It is obvious that Anwar will retaliate for the suffering he had undergone.

But whatever said and done, this 12th General Elections would be a very emotional event.

We need to hear from Abdullah Ahmad Badawi the date he plans to dissolve Parliament.
