Mohd Nor Yassin’s membership in Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah) has been automatically revoked following his move to contest as an independent candidate in the Rantau state by-election.

Pas secretary-general Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan had earlier denied that Nor was a Pas candidate.


KOTA BARU: Mohd Nor Yassin’s membership in Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah) has been automatically revoked following his move to contest as an independent candidate in the Rantau state by-election.

Amanah vice-president Datuk Husam Musa said Nor had acted on his own and made his decision without the party’s consent.

“He has entered (the contest as) an independent candidate, so he is no longer a member. (When) any member of a political party takes action on their own, his or her membership is revoked (automatically and Nor) can (no longer) be linked to Amanah,” he said.


Husam said this to reporters after launching the 2019 Gegar Festival in Bandar Baharu Tunjong here, last night.

He was commenting on the actions of Nor, 67, an ex-Pas member, who is said to have joined Amanah on March 10.

Pas secretary-general Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan had earlier denied that Nor was a Pas candidate.

The Rantau by-election is a four-cornered fight involving Dr S. Streram (Pakatan Harapan), Umno deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan representing Barisan Nasional (BN), and two independent candidates, Malarvizhi Rajaram and Nor.

The by-election was called after the Federal Court rejected a petition filed by Mohamad, the former Negri Sembilan menteri besar, to set aside the Seremban Election Court’s decision on Nov 16 to declare his victory in the state constituency in the 14th general election null and void.

The Election Commission has set April 13 for polling, while early voting will be held on April 9.

Rantau has 20,926 registered voters comprising 20,804 ordinary voters, 118 early voters and four absentee voters.
