Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak today said that gaining a two-thirds majority in the Sarawak assembly will be a 'bonus'.
Speaking to reporters in the Malay-majority Sadong Jaya constituency, Najib said this is because BN's aim is to form a government, which only requires a simple majority.
"Our target is to form a government. That is the minimum. Two-thirds majority is a bonus... because with (two-thirds) it provides stability." - Mkini
