Ku Li pledges loyalty to Umno


KUALA LUMPUR: Gua Musang MP Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah is bent on remaining loyal to Umno even if offered to join the new party, Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu).

He said the question of him turning against Prime Minister Najib Razak by joining the new party did not arise.

“I am an Umno member. I don’t see any wrong in Umno and if there is any wrong in the party, I will provide suggestions and opinions within the party.

“I accept everything in the party.”

He said this to reporters after opening the Trade and Related Services for Asian Artefacts Exhibition at the Museum of Asian Art, Universiti Malaya, here, from today until Aug 14.

Present was Asian Heritage Museum Advisory Council Chairman Tunku Zain Al-‘Abidin Ibni Tuanku Mukhriz.

Tengku Razaleigh said the newly-formed party would find the going tough as the pact involved Opposition parties that were disunited.

Former Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin had on Tuesday submitted the registration form for the new party at the Registrar of Societies office in Putrajaya.

He is the pro-tem party president and Dr Mahathir Mohamad is its chairman.
