STATE PPBM CHIEF REGISTRAR TELLS MUHYIDDIN TO QUIT AS PRESIDENT
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.
