Bersatu approves motion to amend constitution to prevent members from switching sides

KUALA LUMPUR: Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) has unanimously passed a motion to amend its constitution aimed at preventing its members from switching sides.

The motion, which was tabled by its deputy president Datuk Seri Faizal Azumu, involved Clause 10 of its constitution which deals with the cessation of membership and the expulsion of its members who switch sides with immediate effect.

This means that the six of its members of parliament (MPs) who pledged support towards the administration of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim will be immediately sacked should they maintain their stance in supporting the unity government.

Its president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said the amendment of Clause 10 was also in line with the anti-hopping provision under Article 49A of the Federal Constitution to prevent its MPs from switching parties.

The motion received unanimous backing from the delegates of the party's 2024 Special General Assembly held today.
