JO­HOR BARU: Parti Pribumi Ber­satu Malaysia (Ber­satu) pres­i­dent Tan Sri Muhyid­din Yassin dis­missed talks that Datuk Os­man Sapian will be re­placed or top­pled.

He said the Jo­hor Men­tri Be­sar had done his best and that the party was be­hind him.

“There are some is­sues that have been dis­cussed when he met with the Prime Min­is­ter or me to get ad­vice and di­rec­tion.

“Each MB will have his own chal­lenges,” he said, adding that Os­man was still new.

Muhyid­din stressed on the need for po­lit­i­cal sta­bil­ity in the state and the party had its own rules.

“If there are is­sues that peo­ple are not happy with or want to give sug­ges­tions or im­prove­ments, these can be brought up in places like the state con­ven­tion,” he said.

Asked whether Ber­satu still sup­ported Os­man, Muhyid­din said: “We are with him.”

Muhyid­din was speak­ing to re­port- ers af­ter open­ing the Jo­hor Ber­satu con­ven­tion here yes­ter­day.

On Fri­day, Tunku Mahkota Jo­hor Tunku Is­mail Ibni Sul­tan Ibrahim said there was a move from some­one to top­ple Os­man as the Men­tri Be­sar.

“You are not even the Prime Min­is­ter. What makes you think that by try­ing to lobby hav­ing an MB who will be your pup­pet, you can con­trol Jo­hor?” he tweeted.

“You are lob­by­ing for one of our ex­cos to be MB. We know that. This is not 1992 any­more, my friend,” he wrote.
