'Bersatu does not simply accept members'

25th June, 2019

By ERIC BAGANG

PUTATAN: Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia’s (PPBM or Bersatu) member registration process is stringent to ensure they are genuine party supporters.

Putatan PPBM chief, Datuk Seri Arsit Sedi said that applicants must provide a copy of their MyKad in order to register as party member, and they must not be members of any other political parties.

“If they are members of other parties, they need to resign from their party and have a one-month cooling period before they can apply to join PPBM. Once they make application, the branch chief would verify whether or not the applicant is member of any other parties.

“Right now, member registration in Putatan is conducted online and is manned by administration staff with the help of Srikandi and Armada members,” he said when met at his Hari Raya open house at his residence in Kampung Sedomon in Petagas here on Sunday.

According to Arsit, the division has 16 branches, each in every polling district, all together boasting some 3,000 members and counting.

He said the response from the people is very encouraging where many applying to become members including members of other ruling party components.

However, he said to avoid conflict with other component parties, PPBM is not encouraging members of other component parties to apply.

“If they really want to become PPBM member, then they would need to resign from their parties and not involved in any political party’s activities for at least one month,” he said, adding that most applicants are former UMNO members.

Arsit also echoed Sabah PPBM chief coordinator, Datuk Seri Haji Hajiji Haji Noor’s target of getting 200,000 members in Sabah by next year.

When asked about the upcoming party election, he said that other groups who claim to be party pioneers in Sabah are looking to contest but unless they are registered to the branches and divisions, they would not be able to do so.

Also present at the event were Arsit’s wife, Datin Seri Zairenah Irene Siyu; Putatan PPBM Srikandi chief, Salma Said; and Putatan PPBM Armada chief, Mohd Isquzawan Israk Arsit.
