KUALA LUMPUR, June 22 — Datuk Seri Najib Razak has not discounted the possibly of having a general election during the Haj pilgrimage season, saying today it has been done before.
“In (the country’s) history, elections have been conducted during Haj... in 1986 elections happened during Haj, during the tenure of Tun Hussein Onn,” Najib told reporters today.
The PM was asked to respond to PAS deputy president Mohamad Sabu’s remarks demanding he not call for election until after the Haj season. The Haj begins October 26.
“Only God decides on sins and blessings. We are not stopping anyone... if you want to go for Haj, go,” added Najib, who went for the pilgrimage last year.
