JELEBU, June 22 2019 : Disputes between several leaders of PKR and Pribumi Bersatu on the transition of the prime minister’s post are individual views and not that of the parties, says Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
The Pribumi Bersatu president said the four parties in Pakatan Harapan (PH) have made their stands on the matter which was agreed upon in an agreement.
“There are no differences. If there are opposing views then they are the views of individuals, the views of the parties remained the same.
“We have taken our stands from beginning till now. Our commitment is based on the agreement and understanding among PH parties and we are holding to the principle,” he said after the Negeri Sembilan PH-Pribumi Bersatu Aidilfitri celebration here today.
Also present were state PH chairman Datuk Seri Aminuddin Harun, Negeri Sembilan Pribumi Bersatu chairman Tan Sri Dr Rais Yatim and his deputy Eddin Syazlee Shith.
Muhyiddin was commenting on the recent statements by several PKR and Pribumi Bersatu leaders on the transfer of power between Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
Several PKR leaders including Kedah PKR chairman Datuk Johari Abdul, PKR Central Leadership Council member Datuk Abdullah Sani Abdul Hamid and pressure group, Otai Reformasi have been pressuring Dr Mahathir to hand over the post.
However, Selangor Pribumi Bersatu treasurer Mohd Shaid Rosli today said the party is confident of its strength and will defend Dr Mahathir if his leadership is challenged by inappropriate means.
In this regard, Muhyiddin said he is confident that Pribumi Bersatu would be stronger after the party election is held for the first time, three years after it was established.
He said, the election will be held after the extraordinary general meeting (EGM) scheduled to be held next month to amend several parts of the party’s constitution on discipline, membership and election. – Bernama
