PETALING JAYA: Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia's Merbok division and all its 19 branches have collapsed.
Outgoing Merbok Bersatu division chief Major (Rtd) Anuar Abdul Hamid said all of the division's committee members, branch chiefs, as well as the Armada (Youth) and Srikandi (Wanita) chiefs have quit en masse effective immediately.
"The entire division and branches have collapsed, as we quit en masse," he said when contacted Monday (Aug 10).
Anuar had earlier called a press conference in Kedah to announce the collapse of the Merbok division and branches.
"We have lost confidence in the party president (and Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin).We will be joining Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad's new party," he said.
The Merbok division, which had 4,173 members, was one of the top divisions in terms of high membership.
Anuar said the members quit to state their objection against attempt to resuscitate kleptocrats.
He said the division had earlier submitted complaints to the headquarters, demanding disciplinary action against the president.
"Our objections were ignored. The branches in Merbok had also submitted objections, calling for postponement of branch annual meetings pending the final court decision on suits filed by leaders who were unceremoniously booted out of the party," he said.
However, the High Court had on Friday (Aug 7) accepted Muhyiddin’s application to strike out suits filed by Dr Mahathir and four others who had challenged the party's decision to revoke their membership.
