Jika Selangor, P.Pinang, Kedah dan Kelantan sepakat menetapkan tarikh membubarkan Dun serentak contohnya pada 30 April 2011 maka secara tak langsung PRU perlu diadakan pada 30 Jun 2011 dan jika ikut kata Pengerusi SPR yang tak suka PRU berasingan tentu akan menasihatkan PM agar membubarkan Dewan Rakyat pada tarikh yang sama. Jadi saya syorkan sangat-sangat Kerajaan Negeri PR maklumkan pada penghujung tahun atau awal tahun 2011.
BERANI BERUBAH !!!

PUTRAJAYA, July 14 — The Election Commission (EC) is optimistic that the next general election, due by 2013, will be held together with elections in all states, whether ruled by Barisan Nasional (BN) or Pakatan Rakyat (PR).
However, EC chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof did not deny the possibility of the state elections being held separately from the 13th general election, especially in states under PR rule. “It might happen... but we don’t encourage it,” Abdul Aziz told The Malaysian Insider in a recent interview. “If possible, we want to hold all elections at the same time due to cost, time, and resource factors... so we can focus 100 per cent (on the elections),” he added.
Abdul Aziz also hoped that, in the future, all elections including the Sarawak state election would be held simultaneously. The current Sarawak state government’s term ends in July 2011. “That’s my wish. Conducting many elections, for instant by-elections, costs a lot. It’s not only about the cost, [but] also time... your time, my time, your money, my money,” he said. According to the Federal Constitution, the prime minister must seek consent from Yang di-Pertuan Agong to dissolve the Dewan Rakyat, while for state elections, the Sultan or Yang Dipertua (Governor) of the state must consent to the state government’s dissolution.
Elections for both federal and state level had been held at the same time in the peninsula since the country gained independence in 1957. Sabah had been conducting its state election at the same time as the general election since 1994, while Sarawak still holds separate state elections. Only Kelantan was not under BN rule before Election 2008, when four other states — namely Kedah, Penang, Perak and Selangor — fell to the then fledgling PR. Perak, however, came back under BN rule in February 2009 after three PR lawmakers quit and turned BN-friendly independents in the 59-seat state assembly.
Abdul Aziz said the EC was powerless if the states ruled by rival parties decide to dissolve their administrations at a different time than the federal government. “However, if you ask me, I don’t like it. I prefer to conduct all the elections at the same time. It’s easier for us to manage our time and to brief election workers,” he said. He added it would be troublesome if each state picked a different date for their state election. When asked about the EC’s stand if the state governments, especially those ruled by the federal opposition, are dissolved separately, Abdul Aziz said the EC must conduct elections within 60 days after the state governments are dissolved. “We will see on how to go about it because the law says elections must be held within 60 days,” he said.
