In this case, Zaid should be respected for his firm decision.
People criticised and said he should learn to work as a team member. I believe it's true but deciding to leave a party where he went to after he quitted his official minister position is something more than 'not being able to work as a team'. It is absurd for someone who were able to become a minister and senior political person in the oldest political party in Malaysia to not have teamwork spirit and ability.
Therefore I respect his decision and vision of politics in Malaysia and wish him all the success and good luck in the future. I hope his decision will be another turning point for Malaysia political direction which will give more balance and variety to our political scene.
