SEREMBAN: Former senator Datuk Ras Adiba Radzi and former Putrajaya Umno division deputy chief Datuk Tun Faisal Ismail Aziz are now Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia members.

The duo received their membership certificates from Bersatu president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin here.

They were among several thousand people who had gathered at the launch of the Perikatan Nasional election machinery for the coming state polls.

Tun Faisal was sacked from Umno in January for being a vocal critic of Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Muhyiddin said he was also happy to see the large turnout and that this was an indication that Perikatan Nasional would win the state polls.

"What has this so-called unity government done since assuming power the last seven months?

"What have they done to check the problem related to cost of living?

"We have done a survey in Selangor and what we found out was that this is the main problem facing the people," he said, adding that the value of the ringgit has also fallen since then.

Muhyiddin said the prices of goods had also gone up during his tenure as PM but enforcement was carried out to check against profiteering.

"We used to call the importers, producers and wholesalers and tell them not to raise prices.

"We also used provisions in the law to act against those who indiscriminately raised prices to ensure people were not burdened," he said.

At the event, former state PKR chief Azlimah Zamli and ex-Jelebu PKR division chief Yus Mazmi Ahmad Yusof also submitted their application forms to Muhyiddin to become Bersatu members.

Also present were state Perikatan chief Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu, PAS vice president Idris Ahmad and Gerakan secretary-general Mah Kah Keong.

In the last general election, Pakatan Harapan won 20 seats while Barisan Nasional bagged the remaining 16.
