Hulu Terengganu MP Rosol Wahid, who is now a member of Bersatu, has not received a summons from Umno for leaving the party recently.

"So far, I have not received anything. As for the others, I don’t know, you will have to ask them,” he said after receiving the Bersatu membership card presented by its chairperson Dr Mahathir Mohamad yesterday.

It was previously reported that Umno was going to take legal action against the elected representatives of the party who joined other parties, or who became independent elected representatives.

Umno, it was reported, was asking for reimbursement involving costs, and urged those who left the party to also vacate their respective seats, if they had won them on an Umno and BN ticket in the 14th general election.

Larut MP Hamzah Zainudin said he had no knowledge of the summons.

"For now, I say ‘don’t know’," he said.

Rosol and Hamzah were among the six former MPs who announced that they were joining Bersatu today.

The other four were Masjid Tanah MP Mas Ermieyati Samsuddin, Dr Abdul Latiff Ahmad (Mersing), Shabudin Yahaya (Tasik Gelugor), Mohamad Fasiah Mohd Fakeh (Sabak Bernam) and Ikmal Hisham Abdul Aziz (Tanah Merah).
