Najib Razak’s career began more than 40 years ago in 1976 to continue the legacy of his father Tun Abdul Razak who passed away in service. He took up his father’s seat in Pekan as the youngest MP at the time at the age of 23. Prior to joining politics, Najib Razak studied Industrial Economics at the University of Nottingham and had a stint in the corporate sector with Petronas.

At 25, he was appointed into the Cabinet as Deputy Minister of Energy, Telecommunications and Post, the youngest deputy minister then. He also served as the Pahang Menteri Besar between 1982 and 1986, becoming the youngest Menteri Besar in the country. He was also the youngest Minister appointed to the Cabinet when he became the Minister of Youth & Sports in 1986

In 2009, Najib Razak took over from Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and assumed office as the 6th Prime Minister of Malaysia in the face of a global economic downturn. Under his premiership, in spite of the global economic crisis and the crash in oil prices, Malaysia’s economy grew by 90% from RM712.86 billion in 2009 to a RM1.352 trillion economy in 2017 with an average growth of 5.4% since 2010 – a testament the economic and transformation policies introduced under the Najib Razak administration. His administration also introduced the concept of 1Malaysia which underlined his transformation policies that were designed to reach as many Malaysians as possible regardless of their race or economic background.

With Najib Razak at its helm, Malaysia’s diplomacy was at its highest level and saw a period of steady growth even as the rest with the world struggled with the global economic crisis and oil price crash. His policies continue to bear fruits even after change of government. Najib Razak has no intention of slowing down and will continue to serve the people as a credible opposition for the country.

In over 40 years in politics, I have dedicated most of my life to public service. In the beginning, my career was inspired by my father but it is the rakyat that keeps me going. I may no longer be your Prime Minister, but to me public service is a life-long career.

This website is an extension of my public service in my new capacity. I will continue to serve the country to the best of my abilities as a credible opposition – an opposition that will hopefully be worthy of the rakyat’s trust again. I am determined to fulfil my duties and play my role in shaping our future as Malaysia must and always comes first before politics no matter which side of political divide we are on.

I have always believed that for our country to prosper, we must put people above politics and delivery above rhetorics. We must be inclusive, innovative and bold to realise Malaysia’s true potential – hence the transformation programmes introduced in 2009 – 2018. And these programmes continue to bear its fruits even though Barisan Nasional is no longer in power.

Our university rankings continue to improve, families from B40 have more opportunities more than ever to give themselves a better standard of living with the help of policies such as BR1M, 1Azam and TVET programmes, mega projects such as Pan Boneo Highway set to give socio-economic benefits for years to come to the areas involved and the MRT that we see snaking through Klang Valley today is Malaysian project for Malaysians for Malaysian. More of these can be read here. (link to Malaysia page)

Via B40-heavy focus and meticulous policy-making, Barisan Nasional’s policies benefited a wider group of Malayians than ever before – from the kid in Borneo to the struggling single mother in Kuala Lumpur, regardless of their race or religion. 1Malaysia was not mere rhetoric but a principle that is embedded into all of my policies. Those policies were designed for the people of Malaysia and I hope that it will not stop at Barisan Nasional.

It has been the honour of my life to serve you as your Prime Minister. Malaysia and Malaysians will always be in my heart. Public service is a life-long commitment for me and with every breath I have, I will continue to fight for a better nation and ensure the welfare of the rakyat is not compromised.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. Let’s continue the work for Malaysia.

Najib Razak
