Updates: Oct 14, 3.05pm- Zul denies he is defecting.
Kulim-Bandar Baru MP Zulkifli Nordin, who shot to national notoriety, for barging into Bar Council interfaith forum is fast making a reputation for himself as the elusive MP. Not only does constituents do not know where he is most of the time, even the PKR leaders and reporters have problems contacting him. The PKR disciplinary committee has also yet to act against him for his outrageous behaviour at the Bar Council meeting, hoping that Malaysians would just forget about the whole incident. Today, the talk in town is that Zul Nordin, a lawyer, is joining Umno, according to the Malaysian Insider. He did not turn up in Parliament although his party boss, Anwar Ibrahim, was making his maiden speech. Neither could he be reached for comments on the Alor Star High Court decision to throw out a BN petition after the BN withdrew it, ensuring Zul remain as MP. The BN was said to have a strong case against Zul as he did not submit his elections expenditure from his 2004 polls. No reasons have been given for the BN decision. He seems to be making news for the wrong reasons. It seems the last they heard of him was that he was heading to Mecca with some Uzbekistan friends.
