34 Pribumi Members Quit Party To Join PAS


KOTA BARU: Some 34 Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia members in Kota Baru have resigned from the party to join PAS.

Former Kota Baru Pribumi vice-chief Mohd Nor Hashim Che Min, who represented the group, said that they had lost confidence in Pribumi’s top leadership, including chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

“We are disappointed with Dr Mahathir’s leadership which always prioritised DAP in making any of his decisions,” he told a press conference at the Kelantan Mentri Besar’s official residence here on Tuesday.

Among the others who resigned are Kota Baru Armada chief Nik Mohd Adhwa Nik Haris and six of his committee members as well as Kota Baru Srikandi chief Noormala Abdul Kadir along with her five committee members.

Mohd Nor Hashim also expressed dissatisfaction with Pakatan Harapan’s seat distribution in the state, saying that Parti Amanah Negara had been allocated the largest numbers of seats.

“It is as if Amanah has been given the most seats in Kelantan despite having no previous track record.

“It is best that we uphold the struggle for the people through PAS,” he said – thestaronline
