KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman says he is not concerned about the possibility of being sacked from Umno.
Tajuddin added that he can still win the Pasir Salak federal seat if he is dropped by Umno.
The three-term Pasir Salak MP said he could still contest as an independent that supports Umno, and even consider the offer made by PAS to contest in the next general election.
"If they want to do it in a harsh way, I can compete as an independent candidate and still support Umno.
"Even when Barisan Nasional faced a ‘majority tsunami’, I still won convincingly,” he said at a press conference here, referring to the Pasir Salak seat.
Tajuddin won by a 7,712-vote majority against the Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia candidate in the 14th General Election.
He has been the incumbent MP since first contesting in Pasir Salak, replacing Tan Sri Ramli Ngah Taib.
On June 25, PAS invited the senior Umno lawmaker to contest in the next general election (GE15) under its banner.
Perak PAS chief Razman Zakaria said the Islamist party was willing to offer Tajuddin the chance to defend his Pasir Salak seat on its behalf if it was allocated the seat by the Perikatan Nasional leadership.
