Recent political uncertainty has prompted the Election Commission (EC) to be prepared for the possibility of holding a snap election, according to FMT.
EC Chairman Azhar Azizan Harun said in an interview that they will need to refine the election process with the Covid-19 pandemic still looming.
The law states that the EC is given 60 days to hold an election once it has been informed of the dissolution of Parliament.
Rumors that an election could soon have surfaced as Perikatan Nasional (PN) continues to hold power with what appears to be a slim majority, alongside allegations by Pakatan Harapan that the latter has enough support to return to power.
Azhar also said that the Chini by-election on July 4 would be a guide to hold elections in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
These measures include social distancing, use of masks, as well as body temperature checks.
Azhar said the EC is in the process of providing other initiatives to ensure the safety of voters and election workers and their target is to limit the number of voters to 400 people per channel.
