PUTRAJAYA: Bersatu will enforce the party constitution amendments against its rogue elected representatives immediately upon approval by the Registrar of Societies (RoS), says Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin (pic).


The Bersatu president said ROS did not give a specific timeframe for approval, but he added that the party had submitted all the necessary paperwork.

“We hope there will be no objection from ROS regarding (the changes),” said Muhyiddin, who arrived at ROS headquarters here at 10.58am on Monday (March 11) and spent about 30 minutes submitting the documents.

Among those also present were party secretary-general Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin and vice president Datuk Seri Ronald Kiandee.

Muhyiddin urged the ROS director-general to consider the amendments as soon as possible.

“If there are additional requirements, our party secretary will provide them,” he said.


“The decision was made in the recent general assembly that saw an attendance above what is required by ROS.

“So we hope it will give (our submission) positive consideration,” said Muhyiddin, who is also Perikatan Nasional chairman.

At an extraordinary general meeting (EGM) attended by about 1,500 delegates on March 2, Bersatu passed a motion to amend clause 10 of its constitution to automatically nullify the membership of any elected representative who shifts allegiance to rival parties.

The motion was mooted by deputy president Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu and was unanimously approved.
