IPOH: Perak Parti Pribumi Ber­satu Malaysia (PPBM) has urged Tan Sri Muhyid­din Yassin to step down as the party pres­i­dent or risk a mass walkout by state lead­ers.

State PPBM chief reg­is­trar Azrul Suhadi Ah­mad Mokhtar said the de­mand was is­sued by 24 di­vi­sions.

He claimed that Muhyid­din was the per­son re­spon­si­ble for PPBM’s con­flicts in both na­tional and state lev­els.

“Party mem­bers de­spise his ac­tions that are deemed in­sin­cere to­wards our chair­man Tun Dr Ma­hathir Mo­hamad as well as party lead­ers and sup­port­ers,” he said in a press con­fer­ence here yes­ter­day.

Azrul said Muhyid­din was seen as tak­ing ad­van­tage of Dr Ma­hathir’s pop­u­lar­ity by plac­ing his own men in sev­eral prom­i­nent po­si­tions.

“Fur­ther­more, Muhyid­din does not have the sup­port of the grass­roots and does not have a con­vinc­ing aura as a po­lit­i­cal leader.

“Perak PPBM is giv­ing Muhyid­din a week to re­spond to this de­mand or face a walkout by half the lead­ers here.”

He said Muhyid­din did not hold on to his own prin­ci­ples and was eas­ily in­flu­enced by the party's supreme coun­cil lead­ers in mak­ing im­por­tant de­ci­sions.
