Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak is cautiously optimistic that the Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition will attain victory in the general election, which could be called in a matter of days.
In an interview with the Financial Times daily journalist Jeremy Grant at his office in Putrajaya last week, Najib said achieving two-thirds majority was "achievable".
"But I realise that in an election, anything could happen. That's why I say I'm cautiously optimistic.
"Investors are looking for a strong mandate for the current government. If we should, or rather when we get a good result, you will see an unprecedented boom in the stock market. I'm quite confident of that," he said.
