KAJANG: As I trailed behind the latest Mercedes into the driveway of a grand-looking bungalow in Country Heights, we were told this is where we will be interviewing the man who used to be one of the most powerful politicians in the country.

Ahmad Zahid, then the Umno Youth chief, has come quite a circle, for he is now leading Umno as the Opposition leader after losing the last general election to a one-year-old coalition, Pakatan Harapan. More than 10,000 Umno and PAS members are expected to converge at PWTC on those two days, and it will culminate in a rally.

He added that the other events that followed were"Himpunan Melayu Bangkit" in Pasir Salak and the rally to oppose the International Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Racial Discrimination in Kuala Lumpur last year.He agreed that both Umno and PAS have differences, but insisted that they have grown on each other.

"PAS has its own reasons to support Dr Mahathir to continue until the end of his tenure. We feel that if promises of Pakatan are not fulfilled, then we expect that may happen. If anything happens, there may be divine intervention. In this matter, respecting a friend is more important than a pre-empt what we cannot control," said Ahmad Zahid.

"Malaysian Malaysia" of DAP is a campaign which called for equality among all races, and Umno said that it questioned the privileged position of Malays as enshrined in the Federal Constitution. Ahmad Zahid said that although he is open to the idea of a coalition, he will work on what he has now.
