BAGAN DATUK: "Orang berbudi, kita berbahasa,” (Good manners should be reciprocated) said Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi regarding his historic attendance at the 2023 DAP Convention this morning.

Ahmad Zahid, who is also UMNO president, said he was merely accepting DAP’s invitation and was surprised by the enthusiastic response he received from delegates at the convention in Putrajaya.

"At the last UMNO General Assembly, (DAP secretary-general) Anthony Loke also turned up. The ‘authentic' loud applause just now surprised me. I hope there won’t be all sorts of interpretation,” he told reporters after closing the Malaysia Next Leaders 2023 programme here today.

Ahmad Zahid, who is also Deputy Prime Minister, has broken tradition by becoming the first UMNO president to attend a DAP convention. The two parties were political rivals for more than 60 years but are now together in the Unity Government.

 Also present at the DAP event were BN secretary-general Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir and UMNO secretary-general Datuk Dr Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki.
