As a general election draws closer, politicians would do anything to seem more relatable and more in line with regular people in hopes that this would result in more votes from the general public.

Recently, a video shared by UMNO President Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi went viral for all the wrong reasons.

The video showcased Zahid relaxing and enjoying a casual food session of soto pecal and cendol at the Bagan Datuk morning market with Rungkup Assemblyman Datuk Shahrulzaman Yahya and Hutan Melintang Assemblyman Datuk Khairuddin Tarmizi.

Accused of only doing it for votes

The video has gone viral and currently sits on over 293,500 views on Twitter alone. Malaysians took to the comments section to slam Zahid and accuse him of only doing it to gain the support of the public.

“(You’re supposed) to do this all the time and not only when a general election is coming.”

“Only when it’s general election time will you see postings like this,” said a user.
