No, I’m not leaving Umno, says Khairy

Rembau MP Khairy Jamaluddin.

KUALA LUMPUR: Rembau MP Khairy Jamaluddin yesterday maintained that he was loyal to his party despite appearing as a rebel after refusing to join the walkout of opposition MPs from the Dewan Rakyat on Monday.

“Of course not,” he told reporters at the Parliament lobby when asked about the possibility of leaving Umno.

However, he also stood his ground on not joining the walkout although some had accused him of not being a team player.

MPs from Umno and PAS had staged the walkout, claiming the new Pakatan Harapan government had not followed procedure in appointing the new Dewan Rakyat speaker.
