She is a member of the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO), a component party of the BN administration.

Political career[edit]

She served as the Deputy Minister of Urban Wellbeing, Housing, and Local Government in the Barisan Nasional (BN) administration under former Prime Minister Najib Razak and former Ministers Abdul Rahman Dahlan as well as Noh Omar from May 2013 to the collapse of the BN administration in May 2018, MP for Tenggara from March 2008 to May 2018, Member of the Johor State Legislative Assembly (MLA) for Pasir Raja from March 2004 to March 2008 and MLA for Gunung Lambak from April 1995 to March 2004. She is also a member of the United Malay National Organisation (UMNO), a component party of the BN coalition which is aligned with the PN coalition.

Halimah was elected to federal Parliament in the 2008 general elections,[1] having previously served in the State Assembly of Johor[2] and on the Johor State Executive Council.[3] She was re-elected in the 2013 election and appointed as Deputy Minister of Urban Wellbeing, Housing, and Local Government in the Cabinet of Prime Minister Najib Razak.[4]

Halimah contested and won the Kota Tinggi parliamentary in the 2018 general elections instead, but BN had lost power in recapturing the federal government to the Pakatan Harapan (PH) coalition, only to regain power in 2020.
