Kedah Kita chief Zamil Ibrahim extended the invitation through a media statement this afternoon.
Kadir expressed surprise but no interest when FMT told him about it.
"Thank you very much, but there's no need for that," he said. "We can always work together on common issues for the betterment of the country and future generations."
Kadir has been making the news lately as deputy president of the new NGO Angkatan Amanah Merdeka (Amanah). He has been calling for free and fair elections and has accused Umno, the party he has associated with throughout his political career, of bribing voters.
"I have noticed that of late Kadir has been issuing statements that hint at an aspiration to return to politics," Zamil said. He offered Kadir the freedom to choose any parliamentary or state seat in Kedah to contest in the next election.
He said he was confident that Kita boss Zaid Ibrahim "would not hesitate to welcome a former BN leader" into the party.
Kadir was a three-term MP for Kulim-Bandar Baru from 1978 but did not contest in the 2008 general election. The seat is currently held by Zulkifli Noordin, who won it on a PKR ticket but is now an independent MP.
Kadir invited Zamil for discussions on political issues. "Zamil is very welcome to sit down with me whenever he is in Kuala Lumpur," he said. "To start off, it is high time we ensure that we give the present and future generations truly free and fair elections. The whole world is in revolt over this and Malaysia should not be left behind."
FMT was unable to reach Zaid for his comments.Read More @ Source
