PETALING JAYA: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad today said that he is still the Chairman of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) and that he will sack Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin from the party in the near future.
Mahathir added that he and other MPs want to sack Muhyiddin from Bersatu but had to wait for a proper time.
“We want to sack him but we have to call for an MPT (supreme council meeting).
“However, he cannot meet anyone now as he is in quarantine after coming into contact with a Covid-19 patient at a meeting,” he said at a press conference held at the Bersatu headquarters in Petaling Jaya here today.
The former prime minister also said he has decided to sack the organising secretary, Capt (Rtd) Muhammad Suhaimi Yahya from his post.
“The organising secretary has no power to sack a chairman. His duty usually involves arranging tables for a meeting and his position is not even mentioned in Bersatu’s constitution.
“I was shocked yesterday when I learned that I was sacked by the organising secretary.
” The power of an organising secretary exceeded the chairman`s power,” he said.
