PETALING JAYA, March 22 — Datuk Seri Najib Razak said today he is still deciding when to call the next general election, adding that it will only happen when public confidence towards his administration is at its highest level.
“Anything is possible but elections are based on a lot of factors but we must be able to convince people.
“The right time (is when) there is a high level of confidence in the government… we are still gauging situations (to) see what kind of support (we have),” he told Chinese-language radio station 988FM in an interview this morning.
Asked whether polls would be called by May or June, Najib (picture) said it depended on his administration’s ability to “overcome outstanding issues.” He did not however elaborate on what they were.
“(A) strong feel-good factor that’s the time where we should press the button,” said the PM.
