Zuraida’s former assistant has 53,000 supporters in the new Parti Bangsa Malaysia
Around 53,000 members of Penggerak Komuniti Negara (PKN) formally declared their membership in Parti Bangsa Malaysia (PBM) recently. Nor Hizwan Ahmad, a former adviser to Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister Datuk Zuraida Kamaruddin, led the announcement.
Nor Hizwan, who is also the chairman of PKN, said that the declaration during the party’s formal debut is consistent with the NGO‘s program, entitled “The Great Reset 2030” — which seeks to remedy what it calls “30 years of stagnation and political immaturity.”
In a news conference at the Wyndham Acmar Hotel, he said that it is time for the party’s existing leadership to accept the “Great Reset” that they are about to bring to PBM.
PBM chairman Nor Hizwan refused to address the question of whether or not Zuraida, who has been widely rumored to be joining the organization as a board member, will join the organization.
It had been rumored that Zuraida was going to join the party. She was absent from the event.
Larry Sng, a former Sarawak PKR head and Julau MP, serves as the party’s vice president at the moment. President Mohamad Sukri Yusri was previously named.
Nor Hizwan also said that he was advised by Sng that the party may be forced to call a new extraordinary general meeting as mandated by the Registrar of Societies (RoS).
PBM, which was formerly known as the Sarawak Workers Party, was authorized by RoS for a rebranding and had an EGM on November 14th.
