Najib : Why I Chose April 3 for Dissolution of Parliament?

KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak wanted four years in office before calling for polls as he needed sufficient time to see all his initiatives through.

also the day Dewan Rakyat was dissolved to pave the way for the general election.

Asked why he chose April 3 to seek the Yang di-Pertuan Agong‘s assent to disband Parliament, Najib said: “It was a good day. We couldn’t get a better or more auspicious date, and Cabinet happened to be meeting that day.

“Actually, in my mind, I wanted four years (in office) because we required time for planning of policies and to see through their inception and execution.

“If you work in the Government, you will realise that you require a decent amount of time to see all these through,” he said.

Najib, however, stressed that Barisan was not afraid to face the Opposition in the election.

“Mind you, none of the Opposition-held states dissolved their legislature earlier.

“So, if they complain about the time taken to dissolve (Parliament) they should look at themselves and ask why they did not dissolve theirs earlier,” he said.
