Khairuddin won't join Muhyiddin's new party
Former Batu Kawan Umno vice-chief Khairuddin Abu Hassan will not be joining the new Malay party to be registered by former Umno deputy president Muhyiddin Yassin.
In a statement today, he said he was not "politically ambitious" and could still fight against corruption without being in the party.
He also stressed he would always stand by former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
