Presently he is a member of the Malaysian United Indigenous Party or Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (BERSATU), a component of Perikatan Nasional (PN) coalition. He was formerly representing the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO) party in the Barisan Nasional (BN) ruling coalition then before turning to an Independent politician in 2018;[1] and joining BERSATU later in 2019.[2]

Personal life[edit]

Yamani is the son of Musa Aman, the former Chief Minister of Sabah.[3][4] He has an undergraduate degree of commerce from the University of Canterbury, New Zealand and master's degree in business administration from Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM).

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]
