Another constituency joins the growing list of by-elections. This time the Batang Ai Sarawak state legislative constituency would hold its nomination on March 29 while polls have been set for April 7. These two dates are the same for the Bukit Selambau Kedah state assembly seat and Bukit Gantang parliamentary constituency. Another Bukit is still waiting for the state assemblywomen to return from leave. In this case it is Bukit Lanjan. Looks like the whole of March and the first two weeks of April would be full of politics.
While the three by-elections are set, Umno would hold its annual assembly to pick top national leaders starting March 24 to March 28. MIC on the other hand would hold its presidential election. Nominations for this election has been fixed for March 22 while polling is set for April 12.
