Mazlan Bujang, the former Johor Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) chairman, has said that he has quit the party and would rejoin Umno tomorrow, as claimed by sources.

According to reports, the outspoken incumbent Puteri Wangsa assemblyman and former Tebrau Bersatu division leader resigned over a developing conflict with party head Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

The source said that last year, the tense relationship between Mazlan and Muhyiddin deteriorated further.

“He (Mazlan) was supposedly excluded from various party functions and his contributions were neglected by the Muhyiddin-aligned leadership of Johor Bersatu.

“A number of incidents precipitated Mazlan’s public opposition to the party’s leadership, and his relationship with Bersatu deteriorated from there,” the source also added.

Another source stated Mazlan would formally re-join Umno tomorrow afternoon with four more former Tebrau Bersatu members.
