Flashback: We wouldn’t dream of a backdoor change of government – Zahid Hamidi

“… even if the back door is wide open. Even if both the front door and back door are open, we will still use the front door.” More famous last words.

Speaking at the Umno general assembly (at which Pas leaders were also present) as recently as December 2019, the Umno president vowed that they would form their own government based on democratic principles. Meanwhile, he urged supporters to prepare for the next general election or for snap polls.

UMNO political leaders do not have memory-bank. Sometimes I even asked if they have any otak? But they have very long and deep pockets!
