SHAH ALAM: Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia's (Bersatu) Supreme Council has unanimously rejected the decision made by its president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin not to defend his post in the party polls scheduled for next year.

Bersatu secretary-general Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainuddin in a statement said the top leadership was also unanimous in their view that Muhyiddin's leadership is needed by the party and country.

The decision was made during the emergency meeting chaired by party deputy president Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu just now.

The emergency meeting was held following the announcement made by Muhyiddin that he will not be defending the post in the party polls, scheduled for next year.

Muhyiddin announced his decision during the president's policy speech at Bersatu's annual general assembly this morning.

Muhyiddin, who is also the Perikatan Nasional (PN) chairman, said the time had come for him to let go of the position.
