Datuk Seri Razali bin Ibrahim (born 14 October 1970) is a Malaysian politician who served as the Member of Parliament (MP) for the Muar for three consecutive terms from March 2004 until his defeat to Syed Saddiq during the general elections of May 2018. He is a member of the Supreme Council of the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO), a component party of the Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition. Previously, he was the Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department in the BN administration under former Prime Minister Najib Razak in his second cabinet from May 2013 to May 2018 for 5 years and prior to that, he was also Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports under former Prime Ministers Abdullah Ahmad Badawi for his second cabinet as well as Najib Razak in his first cabinet from 2008 to 2013, before being transferred to another deputy ministerial portfolio.


Razali was elected to the Parliament in the 2004 general election.[1][2][3] He was reelected again in the 2008 general election. Five years later, during the 2013 general election he was returned to Parliament. His margin of victory was reduced significantly by a drop in ethnic Chinese support for BN from the Muar electorate which was approximately 35% Chinese.[4][5] He remained a deputy minister after the election, although was shifted to the Prime Minister's Department.[6] Later in 2013 he vacated his post as the deputy chief of UMNO's youth wing due to his age,[7] and won election to the 25-member Supreme Council of the full party.[8] In the 2018 general election he lost and failed to retain his parliamentary seat.[9] Razali's defeat was despite the former Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi purposely campaign trail to Muar a day before polling day during which Zahid had quipped in full confident that he "might as well go jump into the well if he loses" in dismissing reports of BN possibly losing the seat.[10][11]
