KAJANG: Former Agriculture and Agro-based Industry deputy minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shariff Omar has joined PKR, almost a year after he was sacked from Umno.
"I came all the way from Penang to voice my support to Pakatan Rakyat. I felt that this is a calling," he told the crowd at a ceramah held at Stadium Kajang here, Friday.
Besides Mohd Shariff, five Umno division leaders have also joined the party.
Mohd Shariff, a former Penang deputy chief minister, has served as an assemblyman and Tasek Gelugor MP for six terms.
