PETALING JAYA: The third annual general meeting of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia has proved that the party is more open to accepting all races and working together with all other parties, said Bersatu secretary-general Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainuddin.
The Home Minister in a statement said the party also now boasts a membership of 508,705, which is more than double since the last AGM.
"The Bersatu AGM which was held virtually yesterday (Nov 28) due to the Covid-19 pandemic had 502 delegates from all levels of the party participating.
"The virtual AGM had to be held to fulfil the rulings of the Registrar of Societies.
"According to our party records, the total number of members now stands at 508,725 members compared to 222,980 members when we held our second AGM last year," said Hamzah.
He also said that 171 divisions and 2,579 branches had held their annual meetings prior to the AGM.
"Besides the motions on the economy, education and social issues, the delegates unanimously agreed to endorse the amendments presented by the Constitution Amendment Committee.
"This included the amendment to form a new wing of associate members. Such amendments will strengthen the organisation of the party and grassroots of the party at all levels. This also proves the openness and inclusiveness of the party when it comes to accepting members and making policies," said Hamzah.
He said that this further ensures the direction of Bersatu as part of Perikatan Nasional and the readiness of its leaders to cooperate politically with its allies such as Barisan Nasional, Gabungan Parti Sarawak and Gabungan Rakyat Sabah.
Bersatu held its third AGM virtually by linking delegates from 14 states nationwide via Facebook yesterday (Nov 28).
