Rembau MP Khairy Jamaluddin made a sudden announcement on his Twitter page that he has resigned his position as commander of the 508 Regiment of the Territorial Army and requested his credentials cancelled.

According to NST, Khairy told the reporters at the Parliament lobby today (Aug 15) that he had submitted his resignation request to assistant commander of the reserves department Brigadier General Datuk Zainal Abidin M Said during this morning’s meeting at the Defence Ministry. He is currently waiting for his resignation to be approved.

“I made the request because I am no longer welcomed in the Territorial Army and the Armed Forces. It is better for me to back out,” he said.
