Nenggiri vacancy proof that Bersatu's constitutional amendments in line with law, says Muhyiddin

PETALING JAYA: Bersatu president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin thanks Kelantan state assembly Speaker Datuk Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah for announcing an unexpected vacancy for the Nenggiri state seat on Wednesday (June 19).

The Perikatan Nasional chairman added that the vacancy was in line with the Kelantan state anti-party hopping enactments and Federal anti-party hopping laws.

Earlier Wednesday, Speaker Amar had announced an unexpected vacancy after the state assembly was notified of rogue Bersatu assemblyman Mohd Azizi Abu Naim's termination from the party.

"Thank you to Kelantan Speaker Datuk Mohd Ammar Nik Abdullah for announcing the Nenggiri seat vacant following the notice by the party that Mohd Azizi is no longer a Bersatu member in line with Clause 10.4 of the party constitution.

"The announcement by the Kelantan Speaker shows that the amendment to the party constitution and notices sent to the Bersatu rogue reps are in line with the law.

"We are ready for a by-election in Nenggiri and are ready to win the state seat again," said Muhyiddin.

Mohd Azizi, who is also Gua Musang MP, was among the six Bersatu MPs and one assemblyman who had declared their support for Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim last year.
