KUALA LUMPUR – May 23, 2017: Pribumi Bersatu will form a disciplinary committee to deal with members who breach party regulations. 

Information chief Datuk Kamaruddin Mohd. Nor feels that this is timely given the latest incident of dissent against party president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

Muhyiddin has since last week been pressured by some officials in Perak to resign due to alleged cronyism.

“The supreme council members will deliberate on the motion (to set up the committee) at its next meeting,” wrote Kamaruddin in a WhatsApps message to The Mole.

Describing the rebels as a nuisance to the party, Kamaruddin insisted that their number is small.

“Only five out of the 26 division chiefs in Perak are attacking Muhyiddin and not all of the five divisions’ committee members are siding with their chiefs.

“As the party president, it was Tan Sri Muhyiddin who appointed them… how can they demand him to resign? What proof do they have of his alleged cronyism?” asked Kamaruddin.

The party’s Perak registrar chief Azrul Suhadi Ahmad Mokhtar on Saturday claimed that Muhyiddin was responsible for causing problems in the state.

He also claimed that half of the Perak Pribumi Bersatu leadership will leave the party if Muhyiddin fails to vacate his post within this week.

Today, two officials quit the party as part of the rebellion attacks against Muhyiddin.

They were the executive committee members of its women’s wing — Zulaiha Sidek and Aflatuniah Md. Noraini.
