Dato' Dr. Haji Noor Azmi bin Ghazali (born 28 November 1961)[1] is a Malaysian politician from the Malaysian United Indigenous Party (PPBM) currently serving as the Member of Parliament (MP) of Malaysia for Bagan Serai constituency.

Political career[edit]

In May 2013, Ghazali first contested to become a MP in the 13th Malaysian general election and subsequently won the Bagan Serai seat with a 1,140 majority.[2] He was successfully re-elected as MP for the same seat in the 14th Malaysian general election, albeit with a razor-thin majority.

Ghazali served as the Chairman of the Malaysian Highway Authority (MHA) between October 2016 and October 2018, replacing Jasin MP Ahmad Hamzah.[3]

On 24 June 2018, following Barisan Nasional's spectacular fall from power in the aftermath of the 2018 Malaysian general election, Noor Azmi announced his resignation from the now-opposition United Malay National Organisation (UMNO) and became an independent.[4] Following months of speculation, it was announced on 28 November 2018 that he has joined PPBM, one of component parties of the ruling Pakatan Harapan (PH) coalition together with four Senators.[1]
