Rembau Bersatu members quit party en bloc

Five hundred members of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) from the Rembau division declared quitting the party with immediate effect last night. 

Negri Sembilan Bersatu chief activist Mohd Anas Sudin who headed the group said the decision to quit the party was made unanimously at their meeting on March 28 after losing confidence in the party leadership led by Muhyiddin Yassin.   

Mohd Anas said among the reasons for them to do so was because Bersatu practised cronyism and they were dissatisfied with the leadership of Muhyiddin and deputy president Mukhriz Mahathir. 

He also claimed that the appointed party committee members were still Umno members, and that the party's objectives and direction were unclear. 

"With our resignation en bloc, I can say Rembau Bersatu is 99 percent paralysed. There are 2,000 members in Rembau division and another 1,500 more members will resign soon," he told a media conference.

Mohd Anas who joined Bersatu on Oct 10 last year, said the mass resignation letter would be sent to the party headquarters by April 15. 

Commenting further, he claimed that apart from Rembau, Bersatu members from other divisions in Negri Sembilan would follow suit. 

"The decision to quit Bersatu is final and for the time being we will keep calm and will not join any party," he said.
