KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir and Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman will likely be facing Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia's (Bersatu) disciplinary committee, says its supreme council member Datuk Seri Mohd Redzuan Md Yusof.

Redzuan said the party had its rules and would follow the required processes.

“For Syed Saddiq, it looks like the position will be made vacant.

"For the youth chief’s position, it will be selected through a party election but he (Syed Saddiq) can still act on those duties on the president’s orders.

“Before a party election, all positions will be based on the appointment of the president, ” he said during a press conference outside of party president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s house.

Redzuan also said that he would propose Muzzammil Ismail, the party's exco member, to take over as its youth chief as he has “huge potential”.

“I will propose to the president for him to take over the acting role of the Bersatu youth chief if Syed Saddiq has been found to have violated the party’s discipline," he said.

Redzuan also noted that its secretary-general Datuk Marzuki Yahaya would also perhaps be replaced for violating party discipline.

He added that as Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed had resigned as the party’s chairman, thus, under the party’s constitution, he needed to be re-elected according to the party’s election process.

“There is no issue that Dr Mahathir is the party’s chairman because he has resigned.

“In the (party’s) constitution, a person who has quit or is dismissed can come back to nominate themselves according to the party’s election process.

“Whatever announcement made by the secretary-general is against the party, and I advise the secretary-general to stop issuing statements that could confuse party members including the public.

“We do not want to play politics anymore. We want to build the country, ” he said.

Redzuan added that there were only three Bersatu members that were against Muhyiddin.

He said they were Dr Mahathir, Syed Saddiq and Mukhriz.
