IPOH: The move by two former DAP assemblymen to join Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia is irrelevant as it does not affect the Perak government or the Perikatan Nasional pact, says Datuk Saarani Mohamad (pic).
The Perak Mentri Besar said Malaysia was a democratic country and that people can choose whatever they want.
“No issue. Whatever it is, our focus now is to develop the state, ” said the state Barisan Nasional and Umno chairman after attending a gotong-royong at the Jalan Pasir Puteh flats here on Sunday (March 7).
On Friday (March 5), Tronoh assemblyman Paul Yong Choo Kiong and Buntong assemblyman A. Sivasubramaniam joined Bersatu as associate members.
Both were said to have applied to join Bersatu in December last year.
After quitting DAP following the collapse of the state Pakatan Harapan government in March last year, both became Independents.
Sivasubramaniam had also joined Gerakan in June last year.
