Khairy says will decide on Bersatu's offer soon
KUALA LUMPUR, May 25 — Former Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin today said that he will soon make a decision on whether he will join Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu).
Khairy was commenting on Bersatu deputy president Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu, who yesterday advised him not to take too long to decide whether to accept the offer because “time waits for no man”.
“I do believe that it is unfair for me to keep people waiting for too long, so I will make an announcement in due course.
“It will not be too long before I convey my decision to Bersatu president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin,” he was quoted as saying by The Star after attending a forum “Designing The Future-What is Next For Malaysia” organised by UCSI University today.
On May 17, Muhyiddin said that Khairy would be offered a Bersatu supreme council post if he decides to join the party.
Despite receiving the offer, Muhyiddin added that Khairy has not yet applied to join Bersatu.
In a recent podcast on May 22, Khairy mentioned that he needs additional time to contemplate Muhyiddin's proposal.
