Kedah Umno Welcomes Mahathir's Wish To Rejoin Party
ALOR STAR, Sept 10 (Bernama) -- Kedah Umno will not stand in the way of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohammad if he wishes to rejoin Umno and will welcome the man who led the party for 22 years.
"We hope, the move by Dr Mahathir who is a former leader will help strengthen Umno," said its liaison chief Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid to Bernama.
Umno vice president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said Tuesday that the former prime minister had agreed to rejoin Umno when they met on Saturday. Dr Mahathir announced that he was quitting the party in May.
Meanwhile, Kubang Pasu Umno chief Datuk Mohd Johari Baharom who is Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department also said he did not have any problem to accept Dr Mahathir who was previously a member of the division.
"However, it is up to the Supreme Council whether to accept or turn down Dr Mahathir's application," he said.
