IPOH: Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) remains strong despite attempts by some other parties to pull away its members, says party supreme council member Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu.
The Perak Mentri Besar said the attempts have not jeopardised the stability of the party and they would continue to strengthen Bersatu by increasing its members.
"The majority of party members are still united and have faith in the leadership of party president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who is still holding firm to the principles of the party's constitution.
"There are still positive responses from the people towards Bersatu," he said in a statement Tuesday (Aug 11).
"We also found that the people are attracted to Muhyiddin's style and wish to join his fight," he said, adding that he would also fully back Muhyiddin to lead Bersatu.
"I urge all members to continue giving their undivided support to Muhyiddin in looking after the people and recovering the economy while navigating the Covid-19 pandemic," he added.
Faizal, who is also Perak Bersatu chairman, said he respects the decisions made by those who have quit Bersatu.
"I will always respect and be thankful to each and every former party member for their deeds and sacrifices.
"However, I hope they don't go overboard with politics until it spoils our ties," he said.
"Our aim when forming Bersatu was to take part in the general election and to set up a government. With Muhyiddin at the helm of the federal government, it is time for us to give our best service to the people.
Faizal said Bersatu would beef up its efforts to attract more members nationwide.
"Bersatu is in the process of a party election. This is also part of strengthening the party," he added.
