EC chairperson Abdul Aziz Yusof (pic. right) who made the annoucement in Kuching today said that the EC is confident of handling all three by-elections at the same time.
The by-election is held following the death of assemblyman Dublin Unting Ingkot on Feb 24.
In the May 2006 state election, BN candidate Unting defeated Nicholas Bawin Anggat of the Sarawak National Party with a 806-vote majority.
