UMNO Terengganu never named Khairuddin as a candidate – Ahmad Said

KUALA TERENGGANU: Terengganu UMNO never named former PAS leader Datuk Mohd Khairuddin Aman Razali as the Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate for the Kuala Nerus parliamentary seat in the 15th General Election (GE15).

State UMNO Liaison Board Chairman Datuk Seri Ahmad Said said that no negotiations were held regarding the matter.

When asked if Mohd Khairuddin wanted to join and help UMNO, the Kijal State Assemblyman explained that he had no problem, but not as a candidate.

“We have our candidate. We have never had negotiations with anyone.

“But if he wants to join and help UMNO, there is no problem, just not as a candidate. We have never named him as a candidate. Nothing,” said Ahmad.

He said this while attending the Ketengah Holding Sdn Bhd Group Dinner here yesterday.

Previously, UMNO Kuala Nerus Division denied rumors that the former Minister of Industry, Plantation and Commodities would be featured as a Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate for the Parliamentary seat in GE15.

Kuala Nerus Division UMNO chief, Apli Mohd Yusoff said, it is only the opposition party’s propaganda that is trying to divide BN’s grassroots in the parliamentary constituency.

Last March, Mohd Khairuddin announced that he would apply to quit being a Pas member with immediate effect.

The decision made is in line with the party’s constitution, which is the resignation of members at their own request.
