Zuraida quits Bersatu for PBM, to talk to PM about resigning as minister
Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister Datuk Zuraida Kamaruddin officially announced her entry into Parti Bangsa Malaysia (PBM) today.
(MMO) – The Ampang MP became a Bersatu supreme council member after walking out of PKR in February 2020, leading to the collapse of the Pakatan Harapan (PH) ruling coalition that had won the 2018 general election.
“After in-depth consideration, I have decided to join PBM. I see a lot of potential in PBM, especially at a time when Malaysians are tired of the old politics, which stifle the progress of the country. God willing, my participation as well as experience will help steer PBM to greater heights, especially ahead of the upcoming general election,” she said in a statement.
“My participation will also help fill the void of women leadership in the country. Since its establishment, PBM has been getting stronger and now has several MPs and State Assemblymen in its ranks,” she added.
