MELAKA: Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia is firmly behind Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and wants him to continue leading the Perikatan Nasional government.
All Bersatu MPs have also expressed their undivided support towards Muhyiddin to continue leading the government.
Melaka Bersatu chief Datuk Mohd Rafiq Naizamohideen said power struggle and pursuing personal agenda are not what the rakyat needs while the country is battling the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Political stability is crucial to ensure the successful implementation of the National Recovery Plan and Melaka Bersatu calls on all leaders to put aside politicking and focus on battling the Covid-19 pandemic.
“We support Muhyiddin to continue being at the helm,” he said in a statement yesterday.
“Melaka Bersatu would continue to respect, defend and preserve the monarchical system as well as the supremacy of the Constitution and the rule of law.”
Bersatu has 31 MPs, including one from Melaka.
In Johor Baru, the state Bersatu chief Senator Md Nasir Hashim said all Bersatu MPs are firmly behind Muhyiddin.
“The MPs have pledged their undivided support for Muhyiddin to remain as Prime Minister.
“Johor Bersatu would also like to thank all MPs from Perikatan Nasional, Barisan Nasional, Gabungan Parti Sarawak, Parti Bersatu Sabah and four Independent MPs who have expressed their continuous support towards Muhyiddin as Prime Minister,” he said.
Johor Bersatu has four MPs, including Muhyiddin.
Md Nasir added that Johor Bersatu will heed the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah’s call for all MPs to focus on the people’s welfare and efforts to battle the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Johor Bersatu will continue to focus and be committed in continuing its agenda to protect the people and restore the country’s economy,” he said.
