Political career[edit]

On 26 January 2019, Ramli first contested in Cameron Highlands by-election and he was picked as candidate being the direct member of BN. He went on to win the by-election and became the new Cameron Highlands MP.[6] The election was held after the Election Court on 30 November 2018 declared the incumbent BN's MP of Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC), Sivarraajh Chandran's victory in the seat null and void because it was found that corrupt practices were committed in the 2018 general election (G14).[7]

He won the by-election after defeating M. Manogaran of Democratic Action Party (DAP) from Pakatan Harapan (PH) and two other independent candidates, Wong Seng Yee and Sallehudin Ab Talib, with a majority of 3,238 votes.[8]

He is the first indigenous Orang Asli candidate elected an MP into the Dewan Rakyat.[9] Ramli had later joins UMNO as its member.[10][11]

On 15 May 2020, he was appointed as Chairman of Amanah Raya Berhad (ARB).[12]

On 1 March 2022, he was tasked to chair the Dewan Rakyat sitting as temporary Deputy Speaker of the Dewan Rakyat II replacing Azalina Othman Said and created history as the first ever Orang Asli deputy speaker although not being officially appointed to the position yet. He is however widely expected to be officially appointed in July 2022 after multiple postponements of the appointment and his expected win in the contest for the position between him and former deputy speaker Nga Kor Ming who is trying to make a comeback to the position.
