KLUANG: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has reminded the people not to pawn their future by choosing an unstable political party to rule the country.

He said the people should choose a solid party which has proven itself, based on its outstanding achievements all these years.

“As such, don't pawn our future, don't choose people who are in a mess (and) who don't know who the actual master is," said Najib.

He added in his speech at the 2017 Malaysia Aidilfitri Open House at Mini Stadium, Taman Sri Lambak, Sembrong here on Saturday that Malaysians must elect a strong party which has proven its ability to administer the country.

Najib, who is also Finance Minister, said that the nation was ranked at 29th out of 163 most peaceful countries in the world, based on statistics issued by the Institute for Economics and Peace last month due to the efforts of the ruling party.

He added that the United States came in at 114th place on the Institute's list.

The Prime Minister also expressed his appreciation to the Royal Malaysia Police, Armed Forces and other  security forces for their contributions in ensuring the country's peace and stability.

He also said that the Government had its own mission and vision to transform the country into a developed nation, and cited the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High-Speed Rail (HSR) and the Mass Rapid Transit projects in the Klang Valley as examples of this.

“We have the ability to implement projects, we don't talk rubbish. We walk the talk and we are capable, not like the Opposition. They can come out with all sorts of promises but in the end, there's nothing," said Najib.

Najib also approved the application of 500 affordable homes in Paloh, 500 units of Felda second generation houses in Kahang and the upgrading of the Taman Seri Lambak police beat base into a police station.

Also present were his wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor; Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and wife, Datin Seri Hamidah Khamis.

Others present were Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin, Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein, as well as Tourism and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz.  - Bernama
