Perak Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Pribumi) has denied claims that some members from the state’s 24 divisions had urged Muhyiddin Yassin to resign as president.
Its chairman Faizal Azumu said the matter was never raised and referred to the statement issued by the party’s Ipoh Timur Division chief sponsor Azrul Suhadi Ahmad Mokhtar against Muhyiddin, as a betrayal.
“Azrul’s statement related to his position as Perak Pribumi’s chief registrar is also not accurate as the post had been suspended on March 31 and he is only Ipoh Timur division chief sponsor at this point,” Faizal said yesterday.
The party believed the action taken by Azrul was masterminded by a few individuals who were disappointed after they failed to hold high positions in Pribumi, he said.
“These are the real traitors in the party who are thorns in the flesh with evil intentions against Pribumi,” he told a press conference at Taman Meru Impian in Ipoh, yesterday.
Earlier, it was reported that Azrul Suhadi had during a press conference called for Muhyiddin’s resignation after the latter had allegedly failed to carry out the responsibilities entrusted on him and used the influence of Pribumi chairman Mahathir Mohamad to place his cronies in the party’s prominent positions. – Bernama
