PETALING JAYA: The Prime Minister's Department wrote a letter to the United States' Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) director Gina Haspel seeking the country's backing for Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak's administration days before the May 9 general election, reported Malaysiakini.

The news portal said it sighted a three-page letter from the Research Division in the Prime Minister's Department, which is supposed to be an intelligence unit, appealing for the United States to support the then-prime minister “even if we win the election by a simple majority or just one seat”.
