Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has until midnight tommorow if he wishes tocall for the 13 General Election before. The first expiry of a state legislative assembly.

Whether he will seek to dissolve the Dewan Rakyat before then is another question although observers believe he will want to do so.

The Negri Sembilan assembly will automatically expire at midnight tommorow- the first legislature in the country to complete its term after the 2008 general election.

The 36-member assembly was sworn in on March 27,2008 and had its sitting on April 25,2008.

According to section 56(3) of the laws of the constitution of Negri sembilan 1959,the assembly,unless dissolved sooner,will continue for five years from the day of its first sitting.

Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan said: "According to the Interpretation Act 1948 and 1967,the five year period does not include the day of the swearing-in. So, if the Prime Minister does not dissolve the Dewan Rakyat sooner,the Negri Sembilan Assembly will automatically dissolve at midnight on Wednesday."
