PETALING JAYA: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad (pic) will contest the post of chairman in the upcoming Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) elections.

“I am Dr Mahathir, Bersatu member no. 1 and founder of the party. I offer myself to contest the post of chairman to save Bersatu, where some of the party leaders are working with kleptocrats and Umno to form a backdoor government.

“Join our struggle to return our party to the right path,” he said in a Facebook post Monday (March 16).

The party polls will be watched closely as the party is split between Dr Mahathir and Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin who formed the Perikatan Nasional government with Barisan Nasional, PAS and GPS.
