PETALING JAYA: Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia has unveiled its supreme council line-up following its maiden party polls on Saturday (Aug 22).

Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin (pic) returned unopposed as party president while Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu was elected deputy president.

The chairman post, formerly occupied by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, remained vacant.

The three vice-presidents elected were Agriculture and Food Industries Minister Datuk Seri Ronald Kiandee, Education Minister Dr Mohd Radzi Jidin, and Melaka executive councillor Datuk Mohd Rafiq Naizamohideen.

A total of 17 candidates contested the three vice-president posts.

Among the losers were Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Mohd Redzuan Md Yusof and Johor executive councillor Mazlan Bujang.

Azlinda Abdul Latif and Shamsila Siru were the only women in the 20-member supreme council.

Others making it to the supreme council include Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Mustapa Mohamed, Deputy Defence Minister Datuk Seri Ikmal Hashim Abdul Aziz, National Higher Education Fund Corporation chairman Wan Saiful Wan Jan, Deputy Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Rosol Wahid and Tasek Gelugor MP Datuk Shahbudin Yahaya.

Among those who lost in the supreme council election were veteran politician Tan Sri Rais Yatim, and former Election Commission chief Tan Sri Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman.

Bersatu election committee chairman Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar said party polls were held concurrently at 177 divisions on Saturday.

Two other divisions were disqualified from participating in polls because of lack of quorum.

"A total of 23,438 delegates had cast their votes," he said.

Senator Datuk Mohd Suhaimi Abdullah won the permanent chairman post in a four-cornered fight.

Datuk Hashim Suboh won the deputy permanent chairman post in a nine-cornered fight.
