Najib: You mean to say in three days, the economy has recovered so dramatically?

Dato’ Seri Najib Razak believes that there is no way Pakatan Harapan (PH) can achieve all its election promises, which described as being “in the realm of fantasy.”

“You mean in three days, the economy has recovered so dramatically? The reserves are so strong, we are getting good growth? No! These are statements made three days after the election,” he was quoted as saying.

KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Najib Razak believes that there is no way Pakatan Harapan (PH) can achieve all its election promises, which described as being “in the realm of fantasy.”

Najib, who spoke in an exclusive interview with Malay Mail, urged the people to hold the PH government accountable to all its pledges.

“This is the realm of fantasy. There is no way that they can achieve this,” Najib said, referring to PH’s promise to waive off student loans owed to the National Higher Education Fund (PTPTN), abolish the Goods and Services Tax (GST), and reduce pump prices.

“I mean it already can be seen that three days after the election, they said the economy is in a strong position. Before that, they said the economy is in a bad shape, we are going towards bankruptcy, we need to save Malaysia.

“You mean in three days, the economy has recovered so dramatically? The reserves are so strong, we are getting good growth? No! These are statements made three days after the election,” he was quoted as saying.

PH had promised to abolish the Goods and Services Tax, do away with tolled road, have cheaper fuel prices and probe the 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) issue.

Najib backed up his statement on the good state of the Malaysian economy by highlighting positive credit ratings by ratings agencies such as Fitch and Moody’s, plus the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.

“I leave it to the people to decide. We have been saying all these things, and the ratings agencies have said it,” he said.

Najin also noted that he had been demonised by PH throughout GE14, but is confident that time will be the judge of who was right.

“They create a certain kind of bandwagon effect and they demonised me throughout the campaign, but I think history will judge. I think now is not the time, but history will judge what have (they) contributed to the country,” he was quoted as saying.
