Malaysian PM Najib trumpets successes ahead of imminent polls
KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia's Prime Minister Najib Razak touted the economic accomplishments of his four-year-old administration, as he appealed to voters to hand his ruling Barisan Nasional coalition a fresh mandate in imminent polls.
Speaking in a live television broadcast Tuesday night as speculation mounts that he will ask for Malaysia's Parliament to be dissolved within days, he said his government was a responsible one that kept its promises to the people.
"It is a government that puts the wellbeing of the people above all else," he said, as he described his reforms programme as a courageous experiment by the government.
He said the BN was "not like them" who issue a manifesto during the election but broke their promises after they become government.
