Look who's lying?

Yesterday (12 February 2008) he said, the Parliament would not be dissolved tomorrow (means today (13 February 2008)) when he was asked by the reporters.

And today at noon, he made the announcement that the Parliament has been officially dissolved after obtaining the consent of DYMM Agung in the morning.

PUTRAJAYA, Feb 13 (Bernama) -- Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi today announced the dissolution of Parliament to pave the way for the 12th general election.

The announcement was made at a media conference at his office here and telecast live on RTM1 at noon.

The prime minister also advised all the state governments, except Sarawak, to dissolve their state assemblies to enable the state elections to be held simultaneously.

He said he had an audience with Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin this morning and had received his consent to dissolve the 11th Parliament.

The dissolution of this Parliament was made 15 months before the expiry of its five-year term on May 16, 2009.

It remained to be seen whether the polling date will fall on the same date as predicted. The Federal Constitution provides that the general election must be held within 60 days after the Parliament being dissolved. So lets keep our fingers crossed whether the date in my previous entry was correct all along.
