1,000 PPBM mem­bers make good on walk­out threat

New Straits Times - - News / Courts -

No­rar­iff’s fa­ther, who re­ceived a dis­tress call from his son, rushed to the scene and found him on the ground sur­rounded by on­look­ers. It was be­lieved that the vic­tim was at­tacked by 10 to IPOH: About 1,000 Perak Parti Pribumi Ber­satu Malaysia (PPBM) mem­bers quit the party yes­ter­day when their de­mand for party pres­i­dent Tan Sri Muhyid­din Yassin to be re­spon­si­ble for all de­vi­a­tions in the party at the state and na­tional level was ig­nored.

For­mer state PPBM chief reg­is­trar Azrul Suhadi Ah­mad Mokhtar said the de­ci­sion was made since their May 20 de­mand, call­ing for Muhyid­din to re­sign as party pres­i­dent, was snubbed.

Azrul Suhadi said Perak PPBM mem­bers an­nounced their walk­out as a sign of re­fus­ing to col­lab­o­rate with Muhyid­din.

“We voiced our de­mand a week ago, but the pres­i­dent chose to ig­nore it. He did not even make any state­ment to de­fend him­self or the party.

“So, I an­nounce the res­ig­na­tion of Perak PPBM mem­bers with im­me­di­ate ef­fect,” he said in Ta­man Cem­paka here yes­ter­day.

Azrul Suhadi also re­minded PPBM lead­ers to re­flect on them­selves and there was no need to blame any­body over the party’s con­flict.

Asked whether they would form a new party or col­lab­o­rate with other par­ties, for­mer Pasir Salak par­lia­men­tary PPBM co­or­di­na­tor Mo­hamad Hasan said they were open to those op­tions. 15 men for al­legedly hav­ing an af­fair with a woman, who was un­der­go­ing di­vorce pro­ceed­ings.

The court set bail at RM5,000 in one surety for each ac­cused and fixed June 6 for men­tion.
