Media reports claimed that Amirudin was scheduled to have an audience with Sultan Sharafuddin today to submit the state government’s decision to not dissolve the state assembly although Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob had announced the dissolution of Parliament yesterday.

Amirudin said the decision to not dissolve the state assembly was already discussed with the Sultan about three months ago and the indication of when the assembly will be dissolved.

"The Sultan advised me to discuss the proposal, to hold the state election next year, with various parties involved so as to have an efficient election process and not held together with the General election,” he said.

Amirudin added that the tabling of the 2023 State Budget and the state assembly scheduled from Oct 28 to Nov 10, is expected to be postponed, and probably held after the GE15, so as to make way for the GE15.
