Faizal Azumu says will not challenge Muhyiddin for Bersatu presidency

KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu has confirmed that he will not challenge Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin as Bersatu's president in the upcoming party elections.

The Bersatu deputy president has expressed full support for Muhyiddin Yassin, who initially announced that he would not defend his post but later backtracked his decision.

"I will not be contesting the top post. My focus is on fulfilling my duties as deputy president to the best of my abilities.

"It is crucial to ensure the stability and integrity of the party, staying true to our core principles," he told the Free Malaysia Today (FMT) newsportal.

Faizal however did not elaborate on whether he'll be contesting for his current post.

"If I decide to retain my position, it must be through the democratic process.

"Whether there is competition or not is secondary. What matters is upholding democratic principles," he said.

The president and deputy president seats would be the highlight of the Bersatu elections scheduled this year.

Bersatu is expected to hold elections for its Supreme Council and division leaders this year after having postponed the polls for more than a year.
