GEORGE TOWN: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad says no decision has been made yet about Datuk Marzuki Yahya regarding his degree from a questionable foreign university.

"There is no decision yet on the issue," said the Prime Minister after attending the Perhimpunan Perdana Perpaduan 2019 at Dewan Sri Pinang here on Friday (Feb 8).

Marzuki, who is Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia secretary-general and Deputy Foreign Minister, had said his degree was from the Cambridge International University in the United States, after previously saying he had a degree from the University of Cambridge.

There have been calls for him to step down over his "dubious" degree from Opposition political parties.

Meanwhile, Penang Pribumi said they stood by Marzuki, who is state chairman, and would leave it to the authorities to investigate the matter.

"Marzuki has been in the forefront in building the state Pribumi party, which has about 11,000 members today," said Penang Pribumi secretary Azahari Aris at a press conference here.

He said the leaders who were at the press conference represented 13 divisions in the state.

Marzuki had earlier said that he will leave it to Dr Mahathir to decide his fate.

“I will leave it to the Prime Minister to decide on my positions as deputy foreign minister, Bersatu secretary-general and other party roles,” he said in his statement since the scandal broke.
