She told this to reporters here Saturday. June will be seeing two by-elections, in Sungai Besar, Selangor and Kuala Kangsar, Perak respectively.
The by-elections were called following the deaths of the incumbents, Deputy Plantation and Commodities Minister Datuk Noriah Kasnon (Sungai Besar) and Datuk Wan Mohammad Khair-il Anuar Wan Ahmad (Kuala Kangsar), who were killed in a helicopter crash in Sarawak on May 5.
