WASHINGTON DC: Datuk Seri Najib Razak was in his element when asked when the 14th General Election would be held.
A jovial Najib, who ended his three-day visit to the United States on a high, was asked when was the right time to announce the election, to which he cheekily replied: "You want me to announce something in Washington DC? You got to be kidding..come on."
His candid reply drew laughter, and elicited a remark from a journalist that he had less than a year to call for an election.
"One year is a long time; they say two weeks is a long time in politics."
When asked if he thought things were in his favour now to hold an election, he said: "Ya ke (Really?) Do you think so?
"Tunggu dulu lah (Hold on). I might get a brainwave, Insyaallah. Doa dulu lah (Pray first)."
The elections must be called by August next year.
