KUALA TERENGGANU - Umno Ulama Council Executive Secretary Datuk Dr Mohd Khairuddin Aman Razali has expressed his intention not to contest any seat in the state elections, and dismissed rumours that he is the Terengganu Menteri Besar candidate from BN.

According to him, his main goal in this election is to assist Umno and BN candidates in ensuring victory for their respective parties.

"I, for one, declare that I will not compete in the upcoming elections God willing.

"Even though there was news in the press about the future MB and so on, the issue did not arise because I have not yet contested and do not intend to contest in the upcoming polls."

"On the other hand, my primary goal is to continue assisting Umno in Terengganu and other states."

"This is a political decision (not to run), and it's normal for politicians to want their party to win the election," he said in a video clip posted on the his personal Tik Tok app on Friday night.

Mohd Khairuddin, running on the Pas platform, won the Kuala Nerus parliamentary seat with a majority of 8,447 votes, defeating the BN candidate, Dr Tengku Asmadi Tengku Mohamad, in the 14th General Election (GE14).

However, after declaring his resignation from Pas, Khairuddin failed to maintain the seat he held in GE15 after losing to Pas candidate Datuk Dr Alias Razak with a majority of 29,765 votes.

Previously, Mohd Khairuddin, the former Minister of Industry, Plantation, and Commodities, was suggested as a possible BN contender for Terengganu state polls and the Menteri Besar post

Former Minister of Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek (Kemaman Parliament) and former Deputy Minister of Communications and Multimedia Datuk Jailani Johari (Hulu Terengganu Parliament) are also rumoured to be running.

So far, Ahmad Shabery has confirmed that he would not run in the state elections this year.
