Tajuddin rubbishes talk that he will be joining Perikatan

Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman - File piC

IPOH: Insisting he is still loyal to Umno, Perak Umno strongman Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman has brushed off talk that he is joining Perikatan Nasional.

The former Pasir Salak MP also hopes the party will consider his appeal to revoke his suspension.

“I don’t know anything’s about that (joining Perikatan),” Tajuddin said on rumours that he is among 10 ex-Umno warlords that are set to join Perikatan.

“I will continue to support the party and the president. The party has done a lot for me,” he said here yesterday.

On June 12, Perikatan secretary-general Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin claimed that some 10 former Umno “warlords” are joining the coalition.

It is rumoured that these Umno bigwigs are among those who the party had suspended or expelled.

Tajuddin was removed from the Umno supreme council in June last year before the council suspended his membership for six years in October. He was also dropped as Malaysia’s ambassador to Indonesia in July 2022.

Tajuddin hoped his appeal will be accepted soon.

“I have done everything I can. I wrote to the Supreme Council, had meetings with them and even my wife had met with the party president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to talk about my suspension. “What have I done to be treated this way?” he said.
