Khairy to retire for Tok Mat in Rembau

Rembau MP Khairy Jamaluddin today confirmed that he will not defend his parliamentary seat in the 15th General Election (GE15).

Khairy, who is the health minister, said he was asked to cede the seat to Umno vice president Mohamad Hasan to allow him to contest the seat.

“Since he (Mohammad) is the Rembau Umno division chief and I am his deputy, he asked me to find another seat (to contest) because he wants to contest in Rembau.

“I have no objection,” Khairy told a news conference in Kuala Lumpur.

Asked about which parliamentary seat he will contest in GE15, Khairy, who had held Rembau’s seat since 2008, said he did not know yet.

“I have been in politics in Rembau for over 20 years, and I have been a deputy in Rembau for almost 15 years. Now I have to look for a constituency that is willing to accept me.

“Worst case scenario, I don’t contest at all and I’m fine,” he added.

Khairy, a former Umno Youth chief, said that as an Umno member, he would respect the decision of the party and the Barisan Nasional leadership on his candidacy and which seat to contest in GE15.
