PM: Too Much Being Spent On Unnecessary By-Elections

KLANG: National Resources are being wasted on calling for by-elections when the nation should be concentrating on strengthening its economy, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said.

“It is different if an elected representative has passed away, then he has to be replaced but resignations are political decisions which can also be regarded as a political play for specific reasons,” he said on Friday.

Speaking at a press conference, after opening the Associated Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Malaysias (ACCCIM) 63rd annual general meeting, he said Malaysians did not like by-elections that were held deliberately.

He was commenting on impending Penanti state assembly by-election in Penang that fell vacant following the resignation of the Deputy Chief Minister I Mohammad Fairus Khairuddin.

By resigning, an elected representative has reneged on his commitment to serve for the duration of his tenure, he said.

“By right, efforts should be made to strengthen the country’s economy and protect the interest of the people. We must be moving forward for the nation’s future,” Najib said.

To a question if a recent article in a Malay vernacular paper contradicted the 1Malaysia concept when it called for Malays to unite and stand-up against the demands of non-Malays, , Najib said it depended on personal interpretation.

However, he did not want any form of extremism in the country, including racism.

He reminded the people that Islam was a religion that encouraged moderation in thoughts and actions.

Najib said 1Malaysia could be interpreted from many perspectives but the thrust of it was of staying together and developing trust and mutual respect among the races as well as working together as one nation.
