KOTA BARU: The Kelantan State Assembly was officially dissolved today, paving the way for the upcoming state election.

The New Straits Times reported that it is the first state under Pas to dissolve its state legislature.

Despite the dissolution, the state government's administrative office operated as usual under the caretaker state government, it said.

The Darulnaim complex showed that its officers and staff were at work as normal, and business ran as usual.

It was reported that sources said several state executive councillors were not in their offices as they were attending community programmes in their respective constituencies.

"It is normal for Pas assemblymen to attend programmes in their constituencies every Thursday.

"It has been their normal activity for many years. This is one of their ways to remain close to voters and listen to their problems," said the sources.

On Wednesday, the Election Commission (EC) was informed of the dissolution of the Kelantan State Legislative Assembly to make way for the state election within 60 days.
