A Malaysian voter was willing to spend RM40,000 just to return to his hometown in Muar, Johor from Saudi Arabia so that he can vote in the 15th General Election (GE15). The man, 40-year-old Datuk Radzi Mansor said that he is glad that he was able to come back to elect a Member of Parliament (MP) for Muar this GE15.

As reported by Bernama, Radzi, who is a chief executive officer (CEO) of a travel agency as well as a hotel operator in Saudi Arabia returned to his home in Jalan Ibrahim in Muar with his father Mansor Salim, 76 on 30 October 2022. He also shared that his return home this GE15 also meant that he was able to visit his family in Johor.

Speaking to reporters while casting his ballot at SMK Sri Muar polling centre today, Radzi shared,

“What is wrong with spending money to fulfil my responsibilities as a citizen? After all, general elections are held only every five years,”
