PETALING JAYA: Sacked former Umno supreme council member Tan Sri Noh Omar (pic) is open to campaign for both Perikatan Nasional and Umno if he is invited to do so.
“I am resting now but for certain, I will be an independent speaker.
“(If) Bersatu invites me to give a ceramah during the state elections, I will.. If PAS wants to invite me, I will come,” he said in a Facebook post.
On Jan 27, Noh, the former Selangor Umno chief, was sacked for undermining the party during the 15th General Election.
Noh was initially suspended for six years but he asked to be sacked instead.
Besides Noh, former Health minister Khairy Jamaluddin was also dismissed from the party.
Others suspended by Umno for six years were former senior minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, former party information chief Shahril Hamdan, former youth exco member Datuk Dr Fathul Bari Mat Jahya, former Johor state exco member Datuk Maulizan Bujang and former Jempol MP Datuk Seri Mohd Salim Mohd Shariff. They were among 30 Umno leaders and members who had been punished for their actions against the party.
Although spurned by his party, Noh said he was willing to give ceramah for Umno, if he is invited.
“If Umno is willing to invite (me) ... no problem,” he said in his post.
He said that he still loved the party even though he was no longer a member.
