Under the Societies Act 1966, using ‘Bersatu’ to promote the party could lead to the revocation of the party by ROS said Nur Jazlan.

The move by the Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) leaders who continued to promote the party as ‘Bersatu’ will only invite action by the Registrar of Societies (ROS), said Deputy Home Minister Nur Jazlan Mohamed.

Commenting on the move by party president Muhyiddin Yassin and their leaders, who are still using the name ‘Bersatu’ to promote their party, Nur Jazlan said this was contrary to the conditions of the ROS approval, to use PPBM and not Bersatu.

Under the Societies Act 1966, using ‘Bersatu’ to promote the party could lead to the revocation of the party by ROS because it violated the PPBM constitution and the conditions in the act itself.

“They do not heed the ROS instruction and ROS can take action on them as they do not comply with the conditions of establishing the party,” he told reporters after opening the National Registration Day celebration, here yesterday.
