Malaysian PM hopes for elections ‘soon’: report

Malaysia’s Prime Minister said he hoped to call elections soon, a report said Thursday, as speculation over a poll date heats up following the court acquittal of opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim. But in an interview with Dow Jones Newswires, PM Najib Razak said he would not call a general election until he had delivered on his recent promise to introduce democratic reforms.
Najib must call polls by the spring of 2013, but speculation mounted this week that he may call them within months before the opposition is able to organise itself, following their leader’s court victory on Monday
