PEKAN — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said Barisan Nasional has yet to finalise its candidates for the upcoming general election.

The Star quoted Najib as saying,” The list will be finalised when the time comes. Everything else is just speculation.” He said this when asked about a report saying he had rejected half of the name submitted for the list.

The report stated the candidates were omitted for reasons including being under scrutiny from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission and police, as well as being party stalwarts dropped to give way for younger candidates.

Najib was speaking at the presentation of the second phase of the FGVH ‘windfall’ to Felda Chini womenfolk.

“We are still flipping through the names, checking and checking again,” he said after presenting the second phase of windfall to Felda Chini womenfolk. – Malaysian Insider
