Ex-major Zaidi crosses over from Amanah to DAP

Penang DAP has announced the entry of seven new members, including two formerly from PAS and one notably from Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah), which is the party’s ally in Pakatan Harapan.

State DAP chief Chow Kon Yeow and Wong Hon Wai, political secretary to Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, made the announcement today.

The most prominent of the eight, most of whom are Malays, is well-known former air force major Zaidi Ahmad, who had earlier jumped from PAS to Amanah, and now to the DAP.

Zaidi, who hails from Kepala Batas, Penang, shot to fame after lodging a police report against the Election Commission over the indelible ink issue, during the 13th general elections in 2013.
