Kalimullah Hassan, the former adviser to the fifth prime minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, wrote on Instagram that Khairy should “branch out” on his own if he wishes to remain in politics since Umno has become irrelevant.

Fortunately for Khairy, Gerakan is the first party to voice their welcome if he ever decides to join their party.

Acting Gerakan Youth chief Wong Chia Zhen believed the party’s moderate principles were in line with Khairy’s and they’ll be able to support him in the “lowest point of his career”, Free Malaysia Today reported.

Wong said the party is willing to forgive Khairy for playing up racial issues in the past when he was Umno Youth chief because everyone is human and can make mistakes.

Wong also said Khairy is a politician of calibre, pointing out that the former Rembau MP nearly succeeded in unseating Pakatan Harapan (PH) in Sungai Buloh in GE15.

Gerakan is a component party under the Perikatan Nasional (PN) coalition.

There were also questions regarding the possibility of Khairy joining PKR.

PKR deputy president Rafizi Ramli said the matter has yet to be brought up. If the matter is brought up, the decision to admit Khairy to the party will be based on a consensus.

In addition, Rafizi said the party would continue to monitor the development of Khairy’s future in politics and review the situation when necessary.
