Pasir Salak MP Tajuddin Abdul Rahman can join PAS at any time to continue his political career, PAS secretary-general Takiyuddin Hassan said today.

“Anyone can join PAS (including Tajuddin). We can and will accept. In fact, at a programme in Kedah recently, about 12,000 new members were registered, including new voters.

“We will see the potential of support available,” Takiyuddin, who is the energy and natural resources minister, said after an event in Kampar.

The Kota Bharu MP was commenting on the offer by Perak PAS for Tajuddin to represent the party in the 15th general election, after being dropped from the Umno Supreme Council.

On June 23, Tajuddin was reportedly removed as a member of the Supreme Council through a letter dated June 21.

In the letter, which made the rounds on social media, Umno secretary-general Ahmad Maslan said that party president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi had dropped Tajuddin from the council but did not state why.

When asked about using PAS’ own logo in GE15, Takiyuddin said the matter has not been decided and will be discussed in a meeting later on.

“Using your own (party) logo is not a strange thing because we used the Barisan Nasional logo in 1974. We will decide on it when the time comes,” he said.
