PUTRAJAYA: Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor says it is her husband’s destiny to lead the country, despite Opposition attempts to link him to corruption and murder.

“Let’s not do anything unethical to stop it. It is his turn,” Rosmah told The Associated Press, her first interview with an international news agency.

She said the attacks on her husband, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, have made the couple stronger and more mature.

Najib is scheduled to take over from current leader Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi early next month.

“If God says it is his turn, it is his turn,” Rosmah added.

“That is the thing we all have to accept, because when (Abdullah became leader), we believed that it was his time, his destiny and we went on with our lives,” she said.

She stressed that her conscience was clear, saying that her own test of character was “whether you wake up in the morning and look in the mirror, whether you like yourself or not, whether you have told the truth or not.”

Meanwhile, Bernama reported that Permata Negara, for which Rosmah is the patron and working committee on policy implementation chairman, will hold an international conference on early childhood care and education, to share views on issues impacting the quality and delivery of services for children, families and communities.

Najib will open the three-day conference at Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur on April 14. This inaugural conference was mooted by Rosmah, who said, experts from the United States, Canada, Britain, Sweden, New Zealand and Australia would be present to share their experiences and ideas on early childhood care and education.

“About 500 participants from 38 countries with another 210 locals have confirmed attendance,” she said at a press conference yesterday.
