PBS amends party constitution to only require conference once every three years

KOTA KINABALU: Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) amended its party constitution to replace its annual delegates meeting with a delegates conference that needs to be held once every three years.

The 700-plus delegates approved the motion during the 38th PBS congress held here on Sunday (Sept 24).

Delegates also approved the insertion of an article to incorporate and formalise the structure of the premier advisory council into the party constitution.

The council was set up on Nov 12, 2018 with founding and former president Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kitingan appointed as premier advisor.

Another amendment was to incorporate the Belia dan Beliawanis wings into the party constitution.

The annual meeting also removed a provision that barred university and college undergraduates from joining the party in line with the amendment to the Universities and University College Act 1971 which allows students to join political parties.
