‘None expected BN to lose in 2018’: ex-Melaka CM’s daughter won’t rest on laurels

MELAKA – The humbling defeat suffered by Barisan Nasional (BN) in May 2018 at federal and several state levels has served as a lesson to coalition candidates in the Melaka election not to underestimate their rivals.

This especially rings true for Umno’s Datuk Khaidhirah Abu Zahar – the daughter of former state chief minister (CM) Datuk Seri Abu Zahar Ithnin – who will be making her election debut in the Rim constituency.

The late Abu Zahar, who led the state from May 1997 to December 1999, had also once served as the Melaka assembly speaker.

In an interview with The Vibes, Khaidhirah – or more popularly known as Dira – said she will not take things for granted or put herself in the comfort zone just yet, despite indications pointing to an easy victory.
