Quit govt posts if joining PBM, says Bersatu man

Hebahkan !!!

PETALING JAYA: A Bersatu Supreme Council member has urged those who joined one of the country’s newest political parties, Parti Bangsa Malaysia (PBM), to resign from any government-appointed posts they may hold.

Those appointed to any position in federal agencies or companies while a member of Bersatu should now resign as the new party PBM is not part of Perikatan Nasional, which forms the federal government.

The government should terminate their contracts or they should be asked to resign voluntarily, said Muhammad Faiz Na’aman.

He said their resignations would create a harmonious agenda in policymaking and administration and avoid any possibility of sabotage by “outsiders” who are not part of the federal government.

His statement came in response to the appointment of Julau MP Larry Sng as president of PBM. Sng had previously quit PKR to join Bersatu.

He was among 31 people named to leadership positions, including Tronoh assemblyman Paul Yong and Buntong assemblyman A Sivasubramaniam, who were both formerly from Bersatu, former PKR Wanita chief Haniza Talha as deputy president I, Meluan assemblyman Wong Judat as deputy president II and Tebrau MP Steven Choong as senior vice-president I.

Faiz said citizens had the right to join any political party, but members of a political party must abide by their party constitution. Bersatu’s constitution states that membership can be relinquished automatically if a member joins another party.

Faiz said those who had left Bersatu should declare openly that they had done so and not play in “two or more pools”.
