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.

Previous Palang Pracharath Party (PPRP) MP Sira Jenjaka is suing Move Forward Party (MFP) pioneer Pita Limjaroenrat and MFP by-political decision competitor, Karunpol Thiansuwan, over a mission picture including his picture.

In view of this, Mr Sira, who addressed Bangkok’s Constituency 9 until he was deprived of his MP status by the Constitutional Court last year, said he has selected a legal counselor to make a legitimate move against both Mr Pita and Mr Karunpol.

Along with this, The MFP will handle Mr Karunpol as its competitor in the Sunday by-political decision in Constituency 9, which envelops Lak Si locale and portions of neighboring Chatuchak area.

Mr Sira, whose spouse Saralrasmi is a PPRP competitor in the impending by-political decision, said the MFP had doctored his picture with an obvious plan to deride him
