Zaid predicts 'Malay Tsunami' will drown Najib in GE14
Political and economic pundits appear united in their prediction that the opposition will not be able to seize federal power in the 14th general election, with some even claiming BN will restore the two-thirds parliamentary majority that has eluded the ruling coalition in the last two general elections.
However, former law minister Zaid Ibrahim criticised the analysts for not having faith in Malaysian voters, and offered a counter prediction on GE14.
“There will be such a huge Malay tsunami against the BN that (Prime Minister) Najib (Abdul Razak) and company won’t even know what hit them,” Zaid said in a blog posting.
“Malay voters do not answer questionnaires. They do not want BN and Umno operators to cause them problems, so they pretend that they support Umno - but change is in the air. A huge swing of voters to the opposition is in the offing and we will have a new government after GE14,” he added.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
