Rebellion brewing in Muhyiddin’s party?
Muhyiddin’s “solo act” is driving away Mahathir loyalists, says an insider.
(FMT) – A rebellion is brewing in Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia as unhappiness grows over Muhyiddin Yassin’s “solo act”, says a party insider.
Speaking to FMT, the source said many members were accusing the protem president of treating the party as if he owned it. He said they disliked his attitude of refusing to be in consultation with other party leaders, namely Mahathir Mohamad and his son Mukhriz, and his tendency to “sideline Mahathir’s people”.
The source said Mahathir and Mukhriz were both unhappy that Muhyiddin did not seek their views in appointing officials of the party.
“Muhyiddin wants complete control of the party,” he said. “So he has sidelined all of Mahathir’s people in the party.”
He warned that the cracks would worsen “very soon” and that Muhyiddin would come under attack from several members, including some who supported the Citizens’ Declaration.
“A huge rebellion within PPBM is set to erupt.”
