Bersatu amends party constitution to expel rogue MPs


SELAYANG: Bersatu has passed an amendment to its party constitution that will lead to the automatic membership cessation of any elected representative who go rogue.

At an extraordinary general meeting here on Saturday (March 2), Bersatu deputy president Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu mooted a motion to amend Article 10 of the party constitution to terminate the membership of elected representatives who shift allegiances.

According to the motion, any Bersatu member who is an elected representative in the Dewan Rakyat or state assemblies who disobeys party orders will have their party membership terminated automatically.

Following the decision, Bersatu supreme council member Datuk Wan Saiful Wan Jan urged the Registrar of Society (ROS) to expedite the approval of the amendments so it can be immediately enforced.

"The Dewan Rakyat Speaker should also play his role and announce that the six seats are vacated when Bersatu takes the next step," he said in a statement after the EGM.

The six MPs he was referring to are Zahari Kechik (Jeli), Iskandar Dzulkarnain Abdul Khalid (Kuala Kangsar), Syed Abu Hussin Hafiz Syed Abdul Fasal (Bukit Gantang), Suhaili Abdul Rahman (Labuan), Mohd Azizi Abu Naim (Gua Musang) and Tanjong Karang MP Datuk Dr Zulkafperi Hanapi.
