KUANTAN: The Pahang Sultan has urged the people to support Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and not be overzealous in their criticisms against the Prime Minister.
According to Sultan Ahmad Shah, those who criticised Najib should not do so for the sake of criticising without having the full information.
"He (Najib) has done a good job in running the country just like his late father (Tun Abdul Razak),” Sultan Ahmad Shah said after launching the state Fire and Rescue Department headquarters in Indera Mahkota here on Thursday.
On the Rompin by-election, the Pahang Ruler said that Najib should be allowed to choose the right candidate.
"Even though I'm the head of the state, I would not interfere in the choice of candidate,” said Sultan Ahmad Shah.
He also urged the people to be patient and not speculate.
He said Najib would know best on who should be fielded as candidate.
"It's not my business to decide as I'm not a politician," added the Pahang Sultan.
The Rompin parliamentary seat fell vacant after Datuk Seri Dr Jamaluddin Jarjis was killed along with five others near Semenyih on April 4.
Nomination for the by-election has been set for April 22 and polling on May 5.
