KANGAR: PPBM secretary-general Marzuki Yahya has been appointed as chairman of both Perlis PPBM and Pakatan Harapan (PH) for the time being.
He replaces Amier Hassan, who has been “rested” from holding the post at the division and state levels.
Similar action was taken against former PPBM state secretary Wan Saiful Wan Jan.
They, however, can still be branch chairmen in their respective district voting centres.
Marzuki told a press conference here yesterday that his deputy, Maton Din, would take over Amier’s post as Arau PPBM division head.
“Nevertheless, all party work at division level will be led and supervised by me,” he said, adding that the problem faced by Perlis PPBM was just a “misunderstanding” and a “technical error”.
“We appreciate Amier and Wan Saiful’s efforts and sacrifices. They can contest again at the party’s state elections scheduled to be held by October,” he said.
