KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak had said that the holding of elections is not due to any single factor, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said.

It was clarifying news reports that Najib opposed calling early elections before the 2018 deadline.

The Prime Minister, who is on a visit to Berlin, had responded to a question on whether there will be an early election in Malaysia due to issues surrounding 1Malaysia Development Bhd.

“It must be predicated on the basis that we have good policies in Malaysia.

“We are delivering (results) for the benefit of the people and we are the best government to lead Malaysia into the future.

“We have a strong record and we will continue to tell the Malaysian people that our government is still the best choice,” Najib had said, according to the PMO.

It was clarifying a Reuters report with regard to a statement made by Najib on the issue of an early general election, at a press conference in Berlin.
