Supporters who attended Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia’s launch last night did not receive any sponsorship, reported Malay Mail Online.
Its deputy president Mukhriz Mahathir said they came on their own initiative and expenditure.
There had earlier been a rumour spread on social media that PKR had instructed its members to attend the launch with a token fee of RM100 each for those coming from Selangor.
It had purportedly come from the PKR secretary-general’s office and was signed by a Dato’ Saifuddin Nasutton Ismail.
PKR’s secretary-general is Datuk Saifuddin Nasution Ismail.
