‘Mr Monsoon’ better put GE15 ambition on hold as court verdict looms
[Image: 25059d4e-817c-4691-a642-58dc15c98684.jpg]

WOULDN’T it be more proper for UMNO’s court cluster ringleader Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to shelve his ambition of expediting the 15th General Election (GE15) to focus on wrangling himself out of his pending corruption charges at the High Courts?

This is because as early as this Friday (Sept 23), the MP for Bagan Datuk is slated to enter his defence on 40 charges of receiving bribes from a company to extend its foreign visa system (VLN) contract.

Strategically, settling his dues with the courts seems to be a more viable option than to go for the broke by banking his hopes entirely on UMNO/Barisan Nasional (BN) emerging triumphant in GE15 which would hence allow him to be able to “call off” his pending cases.

This is because – on paper at least – there is no guarantee that UMNO/BN can repeat its feats at the four state elections held since September 2020, namely that in Sabah, Melaka, Sarawak and Johor.
