Dato' Sri Haji Mohammad Najib bin Tun Haji Abdul Razak is a Malaysian politician who served as the sixth prime minister of Malaysia from April 2009 to May 2018. He is the son of another former prime minister, Abdul Razak Hussein. Najib Razak was the chairman of the Barisan Nasional coalition from April 2009 to May 2018 and the president of the United Malays National Organisation from November 2008 to May 2018, which had maintained control of Malaysia's government with a parliamentary majority for more than sixty years until the coalition's defeat in the 2018 general election. He is also referred to as Father of Transformation .Najib was elected to the Parliament of Malaysia in 1976, at the age of 23, replacing his deceased father in the Pahang-based seat of Pekan. In the same year, he was appointed the head of UMNO Youth's Pekan branch and became a member of the youth wing's Executive Council. In the early years of his political career, Najib took on a deputy minister role in 1976, and between 1982 and 1986, he was the Menteri Besar of Pahang. Thereafter, until 2009, he was rotated throughout the Cabinet of Malaysia, taking on various ministerial portfolios in defence, education, culture, youth and sports, and finally finance. Between 1993 and 2009, Najib was a vice-president of UMNO.Najib's tenure as prime minister, between 2009 and 2018, was marked by economic liberalisation measures, such as cuts to government subsidies, loosening of restrictions on foreign investment, and reductions in preferential measures for ethnic Malays in business. After the 2013 election, his government was marked by the pursuit of a number of its critics on sedition charges, the imprisonment of opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim following a conviction for sodomy and the implementation of a Goods and Services Tax . In 2015 Najib became implicated in a major corruption scandal involving state investment firm 1Malaysia Development Berhad which led to rallies calling for his resignation, spearheaded by the grassroots movement Bersih. These protests culminated in the Malaysian Citizens' Declaration by Mahathir Mohamad, Pakatan Harapan and NGOs which sought to oust Najib.Najib's response to the corruption accusations was to tighten his grip on power by replacing then-deputy prime minister Muhyiddin Yassin, suspending two newspapers and pushing through parliament a controversial National Security Council Bill that provides the prime minister with unprecedented powers.

Najib Razak's About

[]

Najib Razak is a Malaysian politician who was the country's sixth Prime Minister between April 2009 to May 2018. He has served in a number of cabinet portfolios prior to becoming Prime Minister, including two years as Minister of Defence. He is currently the President of the United Malays National Organization, Malaysia's largest political party in the Barisan Nasional alliance. Razak's illustrious political career is unsurprising given that he was born into a family of prominent politicians, with both his father and uncle serving as Malaysia's Prime Minister. The sudden death of his father, who was only 22 years old at the time, pushed the young Razak into politics. Within weeks after his father's death, he was elected to fill the vacancy created by his father in the Pekan seat, making him Malaysia's youngest Member of Parliament. That was only the beginning; during the next few decades, he ascended to the same position as his father. As Prime Minister, he enacted a number of progressive measures to aid the country's economic liberalization and set the stage for Malaysia's transformation into a modern, progressive, and forward-thinking democracy. He also started the 1Malaysia campaign, which calls for greater unification, national unity, and improved governance in the country. His time as Prime Minister saw fast economic progress, but it was also tarnished by financial scandals. Razak was forced to retire in 2018 as a result of one such scandal.
