My earlier posting:

Yesterday Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi announced the dissolution of Parliament, confirming (and ending) widespread speculations that Parliament would be dissolved YESterday.

Today, he'll be announcing polling day.

Anyway, candidates have been warned not to get down and dirty.
Keep it clean.

Can they?
