GE13 Showdown: Polls on May 5
The Star Group Chief Editor Datuk Seri Wong Chun Wai discusses the important dates for the elections.
“Expect an epic campaign” says The Star's Group Chief Editor Datuk Seri Wong Chun Wai in his exclusive commentary.
“The 15 days between nomination day on April 20 and polling day on May 5 is the longest campaign period since 1982.”
“The list of candidates to be announced by both sides is very crucial,” says Wong “While there are some who voted based on party loyalties, others consider the track record of the personalities involved.”
“I expect Barisan Nasional to put in a lot of new faces, perhaps as much as 30 percent”
