Zahid: RoS approves Muhyiddin's party, will be known as PPBM

PUTRAJAYA: The Registrar of Societies (RoS) has approved in principal the formation of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia.  

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi (pix), who is also Home Minister, said the green light for the party was given Thursday. 

"However, the party cannot use the acronym 'Bersatu' but is to be known as PPBM," he announced after attending the Home Ministry's monthly gathering here. 

This is because there are other six political parties and organisations that have the word "Bersatu" in their names, he added. 

Former Umno deputy president and ‎former deputy prime minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin filed an application to register PPBM on Aug 5. 

Muhyiddin is the party president while former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is PPBM chairman.
