KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak wants certain parties to stop from indulging in economic sabotage in the interest of the people and country.

He said the views and opinions made without facts and basis aimed to undermine the national economy and would create sentiments that could affect the national economy.
"As such, this should not be continued although we have political differences, but national interests should not be gambled away in matters concerning party politics.

"This is of utmost importance because national interest supersedes everything else and this is what I hope for and I appeal that such elements do not crop up," he said in the oral question and answer session in the Dewan Rakyat, here today.

He was replying to a supplementary question from Datuk Seri Irmohizam Ibrahim (BN Kuala Selangor) who wanted to know how the government tackled the pressure on the ringgit and the economic sabotage carried out by certain parties to the effect that national economic stability was jeopardised.
