Political career[edit]

Saifuddin was initially a member of the youth wing of the ruling UMNO party but was expelled in 1999 as its assistant secretary.[2] An ally of Anwar Ibrahim, Saifuddin then defected to the opposition KeADILan party, which later became PKR.[3]

Saifuddin election debut was in the 1999 general election contesting the seat of Padang Serai, Kedah for PKR but lost. A year later, he won the Kedah State Assembly seat of Lunas in a 2000 by-election.[4][5] However, he failed in his bid to be elevated to the federal Parliament in the 2004 election, losing to Lim Bee Kau of the Barisan Nasional in the seat of Padang Serai again.[6] In the 2008 election, Saifuddin contested and won the federal seat of Machang in Kelantan.[7] For the 2013 election, he returned to Kedah to contest the seat of Kulim-Bandar Baharu, but was defeated by UMNO's Abd. Aziz Sheikh Fadzir.[8] Somehow in 2018 election, Saifuddin made a comeback to win both the Kulim-Bandar Baharu parliamentary seat and Pantai Jerejak, Penang state seat but lost his parlimentary seat in 2022. He later was appointed as senator to served as minister in Anwar Ibrahim cabinet.

In January 2010, Saifuddin was appointed the Secretary-General of PKR, replacing Salehuddin Hashim.[9] In 2014, he vacated the post to run for the party's deputy presidency, but was defeated by Azmin Ali.[10] He was once again appointed to the post of PKR Secretary-General in November 2016, this time to replace Rafizi Ramli.[11][12]
