Najib hints 13th GE around the corner

(Bernama) – KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak has again hinted that the 13th general election (GE) will be held very soon.

Najib, who is also the Umno president, in his speech at the opening of the Umno general assembly 2011 here today, reminded all party members to close ranks to face the election.

He called on the Umno members to get down on the ground as it was almost time to go to the polls. The call was greeted with loud applause from the delegates.

Earlier, in his message on Nov 29, he wanted the party leadership at the divisional and grassroots levels to put in extraordinary efforts to face the 13th general election.

The prime minister also told the delegates not to take the 13th general election for granted because the challenge would certainly be extraordinary and the most difficult that the biggest political party in the country would face.

The Umno general assembly today was attended by 2,711 delegates.
