Making his point: Dr Maszlee (second from left) having a chat with Muhyiddin after the press conference as party deputy president Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir (left) and scholar Abu Hafiz Salleh Hudin look on.

PETALING JAYA: Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Pribumi) will try to comply with the 30-day deadline imposed by the Registrar of Societies (RoS) to submit relevant documents despite the notice being delivered a week late, said Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

The party president said it would not effectively be 30 days from the moment the notice was received and he hoped RoS would look into that.

“We already have a team to get the documents in order and also to work with the lawyers we appointed to comply with what the RoS requires.

“We also hope that the RoS can be fair in this matter,” he said at the Menara Yayasan Selangor yesterday.

Muhyiddin was earlier asked which party logo would Pribumi general election candidates be contesting under. He did not respond, saying that it was still early days.

RoS had given Pribumi 30 days to respond to its Feb 28 notice, requiring the party to submit minutes of meetings held at branches and divisions as well as at the central level, failing which the RoS has the autho­rity to execute a follow-up action which is to issue an order for the party to be deregistered.

On Pakatan Harapan’s manifesto, Muhyiddin said it did not matter what Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak or other Barisan Nasional leaders have to say.

“The most important thing to us is the rakyat. Barisan can comment that it is unrealistic, illogical or recycled.

“A huge majority of the people I met are saying that the manifesto is good and that Pakatan is now clear with what it has to offer,” he said.

Muhyiddin also weighed in on the Election Commission’s (EC) redelineation proposal, saying it might be tabled in Parliament soon and it is expected to be passed.

He added that it was one of the methods that will be used by Barisan to defend its current position and the seats that they aim to contest.

“From Pakatan’s point of view, we have always opposed this as it would divide the people of different races. Most of our objections that were submitted to the EC were rejected,” he said.

Muhyiddin also announced that International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) lecturer and terro­rism researcher Dr Maszlee Malik has officially joined Pribumi as a lifetime member.

Muhyiddin said there is a wide spectrum of areas that Dr Maszlee, a well known public figure, can get involved in, such as the policy and strategy bureau or in the dakwah (sermon) and ceramah during the campaigning period.
