IPOH: Buntong assemblyman A. Sivasubramaniam, who left DAP in March last year, and later joined Gerakan, is now a Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia member.
Sivasubramaniam joined Bersatu alongside Tronoh assemblyman Paul Yong Choo Kiong, also a former DAP member.
Both of them had left DAP after Perikatan Nasional formed the Perak government in March last year. Three months later, Sivasubramaniam joined Gerakan while Yong remained as an independent.
When contacted, Perak Bersatu secretary Datuk Zainol Fadzi Paharudin confirmed that both of them have joined the party.
He said Bersatu had received their applications in December last year, and that both of them would be joining as associate members.
“Yong will be part of the Batu Gajah division, while Sivasubramaniam will be part of the Ipoh Barat division, ” he added.
Attempts are being made to contact both the assemblymen for comment.
