Mersing Bersatu chief quits party, wants to join Umno


MERSING: Bersatu division chief Laili Yusof introduced his resignation and is quitting the get together with fast impact.

He stated the choice was made after taking due consideration.

“Even though the decision may be quite rash with the impending Johor state election, but I have honestly lost confidence with Bersatu which has deviated from its original principles,” he stated at a restaurant in Endau right here on Friday (March 4).

Also current on the transient ceremony had been former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi in addition to Endau Barisan Nasional candidate Mohd Youzaimi Yusof.

Laili stated it’s hoped the choice can be a lesson to his comrades within the get together, particularly in Johor.

“With this, I wish to state my intention to return to the original fold (Umno) and to give my full support to all Barisan candidates in the Johor state election on March 12,” he stated. – Bernama
