Muhyiddin says 'traitorous' Bersatu MPs refused to vacate seats for selfish reasons


SELAYANG: The six Bersatu MPs who expressed support for the unity government refused to vacate their seats for selfish reasons, says Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

The Bersatu president claimed that the people in their respective constituencies were upset with them and would reject them should by-elections be held.

"We know that the rakyat (in their constituencies) are also angry and do not want them there but they (the MPs) are 'shameless'," he said during his speech at the Bersatu extraordinary general meeting (EGM) here on Saturday (March 2).

He also labelled the MPs as traitors to the party for not vacating their seats.

"They claimed that they did that because they did not receive any allocations, but the other Bersatu MPs did not receive any allocations but we still continue our struggles.

"They should have left the party but they did not because they knew it would trigger the anti-party hopping law and their seats would be declared vacant," he said.

In his opening speech, Bersatu secretary-general Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainuddin said that the EGM was held after two-thirds of party delegates called for the amendment to the Bersatu constitution.

The proposed amendments were to automatically cease the membership of any elected representatives when they expressed support for rival parties.

The EGM was attended by 1,956 delegates from across the nation.
