DAP predicts the general election will be held next year


The DAP predicts that the 15th general election will be held next year, not this year.

Party secretary-general Anthony Loke said the window of opportunity for the government now was quite limited.

Therefore, it is very unlikely that the government would hold the elections soon as it was still addressing the inflation issue, which would take a couple of months.

"The next window of opportunity will be after tabling the 2023 Budget, but it is also unlikely the general election would be held towards the year-end due to the monsoon season," Loke told senior editors during a Concorde Club meeting in Kuala Lumpur today.

Loke said it was also very likely the general election could take place after next year's Hari Raya Puasa (in April) or perhaps sooner.

The present term of Parliament will expire in July next year.

On the use of a common logo for the opposition coalition contesting in the next general election, Loke said no final decision had been made on the matter and he hoped it would be finalised by next month.
