The 14th General Election (GE14) is expected any time soon, said Umno president Najib Razak today.
Stressing further on his statement, Najib said that the Umno General Assembly 2016, held here, was for all delegates to receive messages and advices as preparation for GE14.
The Barisan Nasional (BN) government’s mandate will end as of June, 2018.
Although he did not specify the date of the election, the prime minister said, GE14 would decide if the Umno-led government would remain in power or people would choose a new government led by DAP.
“If only the Malays and the Bumiputera knows the nightmare that might occur, I am confident that they will hold firmly to Umno as the only party that can defend their ancestry’s rights and fight for their future,” Bernama reported as he saying in his policy speech at the Umno General Assembly 2016 in Putra World Trade Centre, Kuala Lumpur today.
