KUALA LUMPUR – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has congratulated Lee Hsien Loong over his party’s victorious outing in the just-concluded Singapore general election.
“I just spoke to and congratulated Lee Hsien Loong on PAP’s (People Action’s Party) victory in Singapore’s general election yesterday,” Najib tweeted.
The Malaysian leader said they both looked forward to strengthening the already strong and warm relationship between the two nations.
PAP retained power in the polls, winning 83 of 89 parliamentary seats.
The party garnered 69.86 per cent of the popular vote, a 10 per cent point improvement than what it achieved in the 2011 general election. – BERNAMA
