Elections[edit]

In the 2018 general election (GE14), UMNO had fielded him to contest the Sipitang parliamentary seat despite his participation into politics are being opposed by his father.[3][4][5] He subsequently won in a three-corner contest facing a new candidate Noor Hayaty Mustapha from the Sabah Heritage Party (WARISAN) and Dayang Aezzy Liman from the Sabah People's Hope Party (PHRS).[6][7]

Controversy[edit]

After the Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition's fall in the GE14 as well following the disappearance of his father Musa Aman, Yamani was not seen in public too.[8] He finally presented at the parliament to take his oath as a Member of Parliament on 7 January 2019, nine days shy of the 16 January deadline.[9][10]
