KUALA LUMPUR: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has admitted that Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia’s (PPBM) failure to hold annual general meetings (AGM) at the division, branch and central levels is due to the party’s poor organisational structure.

Dr Mahathir, who is PPBM chairman, said the party’s branches and divisions have yet to hold meetings at their respective levels despite having many members.

“To have an AGM, we need to have meetings at the branch and division levels but although there are many members, they haven’t organised meetings yet.

“Even some divisions are not properly organised yet, so we can’t determine who will attend the AGM if we hold one,” he said during a press conference at the Parliament building here today.

He revealed that the branches are the most disorganised section of the party, which was founded in September last year.

On Sunday, Registry of Societies (RoS) director-general Surayati Ibrahim said PPBM is facing a possibility of deregistration if it fails to resolve issues concerning a proposed amendment to the party’s constitution, and its failure to hold AGMs at the division, branch and central levels.

She had said PPBM’s failure to hold an AGM since it was registered a year ago was a violation under its own party constitution as well as under the Societies Act 1966.

She had said PPBM allegedly failed to conduct AGMs at its divisions and branches with a minimum quorum.

“What they did hold was a Special Committee Meeting which only involved its supreme council members. It did not involve divisional or grassroots members,” she was quoted as saying.

Surayati had said these problems remained unresolved despite PPBM going “back and forth” to the RoS headquarters to iron out the issues since June.

She had also said the issues that had affected PPBM’s status as a registered party pertained to the party’s inclusion of its women and youth wings, whereby terms such as Armada (Angkatan Bersatu Anak Muda) for the youth wing, and Srikandi for the women’s wing, were not in the party’s constitution.

Meanwhile, commenting on Pakatan Harapan’s registration with the RoS, Dr Mahathir said the pact is still waiting to hold a meeting with Home Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

He said the opposition coalition has yet to receive word from the RoS on whether or not their application is approved although it was submitted several months ago.

“We are trying to meet the minister (Zahid) but we haven’t received any answers yet. We want to know if there are objections or if RoS disagreed with our (application) or if they have suggestions for us,” he added. –Reporting by ARFA YUNUS, FERNANDO FONG AND BEATRICE NITA JAY.

***********************
Dr. Mahathir was giving excuses that the party members have not ascertained their membership, based on branches and divisions.
PPBM has yet to convene their first AGM, since ROS approved the application in August last year.
According to PPBM Constitution, AGM must be convened within two months after divisions concluded their annual meetings. Divisional meetings must convene two weeks after braces concluded their meetings.
