financial mismanagement and worse-off economy may stymie najib"s ge-13 push

Financial mismanagement and worse-off economy may stymie Najib's GE-13 pushDatuk Seri Najib Razak’s pre-polls charm offensive could sputter on alleged mismanagement of government projects and an uncertain economy despite the prime minister announcing a slew of reforms to boost voter support for the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN), say opposition lawmakers.
In recent months, Najib repealed three Emergency declarations, pledged to abolish the Internal Security Act (ISA), tabled a contentious Peaceful Assembly Bill, formed a parliamentary select committee on electoral reform and given more leeway to university students to participate in politics.
But a minister’s family’s handling of the RM250 million National Feedlot Centre (NFC) and an inflation rate that has remained at 3.4 per cent for two months is a challenge to Najib, who remains personally popular with a 59 per cent approval rating.
