PETALING JAYA: Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) aims to strengthen its image as the party that will champion the rights of the bumiputras, says Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

Bersatu President Muhyiddin says this will be the main agenda of the party's second Annual General Meeting  which will be held on Dec 28 to Dec 30.

"We are race-based but we are not racist.

"We are committed to the Federal Constitution with regards to the rights of Bumiputras, the Malay rulers and the Malay language. We do not want Malaysians to doubt our commitment to the constitution.

"We realise that the Malays are worried. Facts and figures show that Malays are far behind now than before in terms of per capita. We want to show that we will fight for them," says Muhyiddin.

He was briefing the media here today (Dec 11) on the arrangements of the AGM to be held in Putrajaya and attended by more than 2,000 delegates from party branches nationwide.
