KUALA LUMPUR, March 5 (Bernama) — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak is ready to take the country forward after overcoming challenges and trying times, said former finance minister Tun Daim Zainuddin.

He said since 1976, Najib (then Umno Youth executive council member) had shown his ability in riding political waves to hone his talent and expertise, and took advantage of his seniority, experience and better networks over his contemporaries and senior Umno members.

“If you differentiate the characteristics of the two leaders, Anwar (opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim) and Najib, you will be inclined to give higher marks to Najib, who in my view, has benefited a lot as a son of Tun Razak.

“He had been in Umno Youth for several years before Anwar joined the party.

“He is familiar with personalities and issues arising and proven to have a very sharp mind in closed-door meetings. He is very confident and able to face the public,” he said in an interview with Mingguan Malaysia, Sunday.
