KUCHING, Jan 25: Parti Bangsa Malaysia (PBM) president Larry Sng claims that some individuals who assert that PBM divisions have been dissolved and members have resigned are merely looking for “cheap publicity”.
According to a news report by Free Malaysia Today (FMT) today, despite the announcement of committee members’ resignations in PBM chapters in Pahang and Negeri Sembilan, Sng stated that the party had not received any formal dissolution or resignation notices from the committee members.
He also emphasised that no one has the authority to make such an announcement, which only the supreme council can make.
Meanwhile, it was reported yesterday (Jan 24) that PBM Negeri Sembilan announced the dissolution and resignation of all members of its state committee, divisions, youth and women’s wings due to a loss of faith in Sng’s leadership.
PBM Negeri Sembilan chairman Rosman Jonet revealed in a statement on Tuesday (Jan 24) that the decision was made during a special meeting of the state Leadership Council Committee on Jan 20.
Rosman also mentioned that the dissolution involved the committees of the party’s Port Dickson, Jempol, Tampin, Rasah, Rembau, Jelebu, and Kuala Pilah divisions.
He further claimed that Sng was only concerned with his own self-interest when he revealed the party’s secrets on social media platforms and issued statements that allegedly harmed PBM’s image.
However, on Jan 20, Sng publicly stated on his official Facebook page that PBM is currently being restructured, adding that new divisions are being formed while others have lapsed in their registration with the Registrar of Society (ROS).
Additionally, on Jan 19, PBM Selayang division announced its dissolution after losing faith in Sng for breaking his promise to allow PBM founder Zuraida Kamaruddin to take the reins of the party.
On Jan 14, PBM Pahang also announced the disbandment of the state committee and eight divisions that were registered with the ROS following a protest against Sng. — DayakDaily
