Tamrin Abdul Ghafar, son of former deputy prime minister Ghafar Baba, announced that he is quitting the Citizens' Declaration secretariat.
"After careful thought, I have decided to withdraw from the Citizens' Declaration secretariat led by Mahathir," he said in a statement today.
Tamrin, who is a former Umno member, said that he also had no interest in joining the new Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) led by former deputy prime minister Muhyiddin Yassin.
"These decisions, effective today, are final," he said.
Tamrin is presently partyless, after joining PAS in 2012 and quitting two years later.
Previously, he was Umno's Batu Berendam MP for 10 years.
When contacted, Tamrin was coy about his decision to distance himself from the efforts initiated by former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
"Why? I do not want to discuss. My statement should be enough," he said.
Pressed on what his next course of action will be, Tamrin replied: "There is still time, we can discuss later."
