NAJIB TO PRESS THE ‘COMMIT SUICIDE’ BUTTON? ‘I THINK PARLIAMENT CAN BE DISSOLVED TOMORROW’

The public response to Negeri Sembilan’s first Urban Transformation Centre is so good that Parliament can be dissolved tomorrow, Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak said in jest today.

“It is clear that all of you are happy with this UTC in Ampangan. That is why the celebration today is extraordinary.

“I think that Parliament can be dissolved tomorrow,” Najib said, to rounds of laughter from the audience.

He said this while officiating the UTC in Ampangan, Seremban today.

The current parliamentary term expires on June 26, 2018 which means GE14 must be called within 60 days from that date.

Built by renovating an existing building, Najib said the Ampangan UTC cost the government just RM34.29 million.

“We save money, because if we are forced to build a new building, it will probably cost RM150 million,” he said.

He also said that the UTC took just 12 weeks to complete.

The Seremban UTC is the 20th of its kind in the country.
