‘DON’T FORGET OUR BIG DAY WILL COME AFTER THE CHINESE NEW YEAR’ – ZAHID HINTS OF FEBRUARY GE14

BAGAN DATUK – Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi (pic) has given a hint that the 14th General Election will likely be held within days after the Chinese New Year next year.

Ahmad Zahid, who is also Home Minister and MP for Bagan Datuk, appeared to touch on this when opening the Teoh Fu Kiong Temple in Hutan Melintang here this monring.

“Don’t forget our big day will come, after the Chinese New Year there will be another big day, If before voters made a mistake it is okay, I forgive. If can this time don’t repeat the same mistake,” he said to rapturous applause from the congregation which numbered more than 500 people.

Chinese New Year falls on Feb 16 and 17. The current parliamentary term expires on June 26, 2018 which means GE14 must be called within 60 days from that date.

“The Malaysian government is a caring one and understands religious differences. Although our constitution states that Islam is the religion of the federation, non-Muslims are free to practise their respective religions.

“Its means the government is fair and respects all religions in the country because Islam teaches us to respect other religions,” he said.
