Queried on the matter by a reporter at the end of his three-day working visit here yesterday, the prime minister laughed, and said: “Wait first.”

“You want me to announce something in Washington DC? You got to be kidding,” he said.

On whether he thought it was the right time now as everything seemed to be in his favour, Najib replied: “Is it..you think so?”

“You got less than one year Datuk (Seri),” the reporter pointed out.

“One year is a long time (in politics),” replied Najib who visited the United States at the invitation of President Donald Trump. Both leaders held talks at the White House on Tuesday.

The mandate of the ruling Barisan National coalition, of which Najib is chairman, will end in June 2018. ― Bernama
