Two former Umno leaders join DAP
Two former Umno branch leaders in Parit Division along with eight other party members joined DAP.
(Sinar Daily) – They are the former Titi Gantung Umno branch’s former deputy chief Abdul Mukmin Abd Rashid and Pekan Parit Umno Youth chief Rosman Esa who submitted their membership forms to Parit DAP parliament chairman Tarmizi Mohd Jam in a ceremony in Seri Iskandar, Parit, last Friday.
He claimed joining DAP would provide him with an extensive platform to discuss issues about the people.
“I volunteered twice to run for the position of Umno Youth Leader of Parit Division, but I was unsuccessful and it was evident that the delegates cast ballots against me.
“When I joined DAP, some said I was after money and a position. Since I was a kid, I have been interested in politics, and I wanted a platform to represent the voice of people.
