KUALA LUMPUR: Ex-Selangor mentri besar and former vice-president of Umno Tan Sri Muhammad Muhammad Taib has applied to rejoin Umno.

Announcing this at a media conference at Umno headquarters at Menara Dato' Onn here on Sunday, Umno president Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said:

"He realised that the Opposition struggle namely PKR is in vain and is against with his soul and because of that God has opened his heart to return to Umno."

Muhammad Taib, who was present at the media conference, left Umno in 2013 to join PAS, and he later left PAS to join PKR in 2015.

At the Arau Umno division delegates meeting earlier, party vice-president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi had said that the media conference called by Najib was not about seeking a dissolution of Parliament.

On Saturday night, all Umno supreme council members had received an invitation from the party secretary-general to attend the media conference.
