Local Government and Provincial Councils Minister Faizer Mustapha said yesterday he would sign the gazette notification today announcing the number of members to be elected to each local body.  


The Minister told Daily Mirror that he would sign it at 11.00 am today. Once that is done, all the barriers to  conducting the local government elections will be cleared.   

Meanwhile, the Elections Commission will also meet today to discuss formalities for conducting the elections.   
Already, the Commission has identified January 20 or 27 as the likely dates for conducting the polls.   
The last local government elections were conducted only in 2010.
