PUSA, 4 FEB, 2010: Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud said today he was in no rush to call a state election.
Taib, who is the state Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman, said he would announce the matter when the time came.
“There’s no inspiration yet. There are still plenty of time and I don’t like to make surprises.
“Like in the past, I will make the announcement when the time comes,” he told reporters after launching a programme to uplift the people’s income here today.
The current term of the state assembly is due next year.
In the 2006 state election, the Sarawak BN, comprising Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu, Sarawak United People’s Party, Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party and Parti Rakyat Sarawak, won 62 of 71 seats up for grabs.
