Government-friendly multiracial Parti Bangsa Malaysia to be launched today


PETALING JAYA: New political party Parti Bangsa Malaysia (PBM) will be launched today and it will be supporting the government of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, sources said.

Several MPs and assemblymen, including Julau MP Larry Sng and Tebrau MP Steven Choong, are expected to join the party.

Sng, who is slated to be PBM deputy president, and Choong are independent MPs who are supportive of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia.

According to sources, the MPs of the new party will support Ismail Sabri’s government.

In an invitation sent to the media yesterday, PBM, which called itself a “new force”, said the launch will be held at a hotel in Klang today. The invitation note also had the slogan “Malaysia is Home, Malaysians are Family”.

A PBM insider said the party will be a “grassroots-powered multiracial party”.

She claimed that about 50,000 Pertubuhan Penggerak Komuniti Negara members are expected to join PBM.

“We will evolve into a new force to rock the nation with our soon-to-be-revealed major agenda,” said the insider, who did not want to be identified as she was not authorised to speak to the media, adding that PBM wants to be a new political force that is supported by women, millennials and the Gen Z.

“Politics in Malaysia is messy. We want to be a choice for voters who are sick and tired of racial and religious politics, who want Malaysia to be a united, progressive country.”
