Followin the dissolution o the Federal Parliament, 12 oot o 13 state assemblies, (wi the exception o Sarawak) wur dissolved, pavin the wey for simultaneous elections for the federal an state assemblies. While ony State mey dissolve its assembly independently o the Federal Parliament, the practice syne 2004 is for aw state assemblies (except Sarawak's) tae be dissolved quickly efter Parliament dissolution tae allow simultaneous elections tae be held for the Parliament an State Assemblies.[3][4]

The constitutional parliamentary term in Malaysie is five years, efter which the Federal Parliament must be dissolved bi the Yang di-Pertuan Agong on the advice o the Prime Meenister as pertained in the Malaysie laws for naitional elections. Elections in Malaysie follow the first-past-the-post seestem an are conductit bi the Election Commission o Malaysie.
