KUALA LUMPUR, May 12 — Datuk Seri Najib Razak has described the opposition leaders’ refusal to accept the results of the 13th General Election (GE13) which were in favour of the Barisan Nasional (BN), as the greatest

hypocrisy.

The prime minister said on the other hand, the opposition could accept the results that benefited them despite claiming the polls were tainted by fraud.

“If the electoral system was tainted, hit by fraud, why have the swearing-in in Penang and Kelantan, and engage in a tussle (as to who should be sworn-in as menteri besar) in Selangor? Why accept (the results) in Permatang Pauh, Gelang Patah?

“The same system is used at the state and parliamentary levels. If the results benefited them, (they) accepted the results. If they were in BN’s favour, they objected them. This is the greatest hypocrisy,” he said at Umno’s

67th anniversary celebration at the Putra World Trade Centre here last night.

Najib said, as an advocator of democracy, the opposition should accept the people’s decision based on the system adopted under the Constitution.

Najib also chided the opposition leader for putting the people in difficult situations and tarnishing the country’s image after failing to take over the reins of the government, since the last four general elections.

“So, if you want to do lecturing abroad, go ahead. Why wait any longer. You have failed four times, why continue to hold your position?

“Is this what is called practising democracy? Is this the fight for a fair and open system? That there is no corruption and nepotism (in your party)?

“But today, the (PKR) deputy president claimed that there is nepotism in the party. This is double standard,” he said.
