Decision to return to Umno made before GE15, says Mohd Rafiq

FORMER Bersatu vice-president Mohd Rafiq Naizamohideen stressed that he made up his mind to rejoin Umno before the recent general election (GE15), when it was not known which party would govern the country. 

He said his application to rejoin Umno was accepted and effective on March 18 this year – which is after the party elections – via an Umno Supreme Council decision and not because Umno holds positions in the unity government.
