Najib Targets Two-Thirds Majority, Flags Malaysian Election Soon

Malaysia Prime Minister Najib Razak signaled his party has recovered from its 2008 election setback and said the ruling coalition will be aiming to restore its two-thirds parliamentary majority when elections are held soon.

“We will be going to the battlefield not too long from now,” said Najib, speaking at the close of the United Malays National Organisation’s annual assembly in Kuala Lumpur at the weekend. “We will have to fight the war and that means we must make sure our team is strong and united.”
