HEALTH Minister Khairy Jamaluddin today said that he is still an Umno member and will remain with the party forever.

The Rembau MP denied rumours that he had left the party as claimed in a video titled “KJ Keluar Umno!! Sah, keputusan muktamad Khairy Jamaluddin!!” (KJ Quits UMNO!! Confirmed, Khairy Jamaluddin’s Final Decision!!) which was posted on YouTube on September 14.

“I don’t like to entertain news like this but many have messaged me and asked about it. I am still with Umno. I had once won the Umno Youth chief post but was not appointed to the cabinet and was boycotted, but I stuck with Umno. 

“...(I faced) all kinds of political persecution, but still never left Umno. I lost when I ran for the Umno president post and was looked down upon, but still remained with Umno. Even though I have to find a new parliamentary seat (to contest in the next general election), (it’s) still Umno. Do not worry. Then, now, forever (I will be with Umno),” he said in an Instagram post. – Bernama, September 19, 2022.
