Former Puteri Umno chief joins PPBM

  • Mas Ermieyati, who quit Umno to become an independent MP on July 1, has joined PPBM.

MELAKA, Dec 13 (Bernama) -- Masjid Tanah MP Datuk Mas Ermieyati Samsudin today announced that she is joining Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM).

The former Puteri Umno chief in a statement here said her decision to join PPBM was made in the best interests of her constituents.

"I have always wanted the best for voters in Masjid Tanah and am always seeking more effective solutions towards this purpose. As such, after much soul-searching, I took the decision to join PPBM

"I also hope to assist efforts by PPBM as a component party of the government to empower young women apart from championing the cause of youths in general so that they can have better lives and also to create a brighter future for Malaysia," she said.

She said this would be the best path under the Malaysian framework which is multiracial and expressed thanks to PPBM chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and the party leadership for accepting her, as well as her constituents for their support.

Mas Ermieyati quit Umno to become an independent MP on July 1, citing loss of confidence in the party leadership.

Meanwhile, Melaka PPBM chairman Datuk Seri Mohd Redzuan Yusof said Mas Ermieyati made the right decision because she had the people's interests at heart.

The Entrepreneur Development Minister said Mas Ermieyati was a capable leader and understood very well and was aware of what was needed to be done by the government for the people who lagged behind, especially the Malays.

"We welcome her into the PPBM fold," he said when asked for his reaction.
