PETALING JAYA: A third Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia supreme council member has announced his exit from the party to join the new Malay-based party of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
Ulya Aqamah Husamudin became the third supreme council member to leave Bersatu after the former prime minister and ex-Bersatu chairman announced the formation of a new Malay-based political party on Friday.
“I announce my exit from the party and relinquish all my posts at the national level and Pokok Sena Bersatu division.
“Thank you to all who have guided and given me an opportunity to serve.
“I hope Bersatu can re-evaluate its original struggle and return to the objectives of its formation, ” said Ulya in a statement yesterday.

In Selangor, Jeram assemblyman and Kuala Selangor Bersatu chief Mohd Shaid Rosli also announced his exit from the party on Saturday.
He had said that 13 Bersatu branches in Kuala Selangor were dissolved with the resignations of its members.
