Permatang Pasir - Another Tuesday

Why is another Election on another Tuesday as announced by the Election Commission Chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof?

The Commission has announced Nomination day to be on 17th August which is a Monday and Polling day on the 25th August falling on a Tuesday.

This is beyond common understanding, it is unusual that the commission is consistently holding election day on a working day for the previous few by-election.

Isn't it a common precept to have polling day on a weekend or a holiday so that it is convenient for voters to come back to vote? And on weekend it will not disrupt the normal course of business and work.

Why must it be a Tuesday and a working day?
