PUTRAJAYA: Seven former Umno parliamentarians have officially been accepted into Parti Pribumi Bumiputera Malaysia (PPBM) today, its chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said.

Six of the seven new members were present at the Perdana Leadership Foundation to accept their membership documents, including Larut MP Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainuddin, Tasek Gelugor MP Datuk Shabudin Yahaya, and Mersing MP Datuk Abdul Latiff Ahmad.

“They (the MPs) have left their party a long time ago and have applied to join us.


“We have reviewed their application and accepted it, but they will only join as normal members and it does not give them any protection from past wrongdoings,” the prime minister told a press conference.
