Stop blaming Dr Mahathir for Muhyiddin’s doing, Mukhriz tells Nik Nazmi

IT was Muhyiddin Yassin who approved the admission of Umno lawmakers into Bersatu, Mukhriz Mahathir said today in response to blame being laid on his father, Dr Mahathir Mohamad for encouraging party hopping.

“Although I had voiced my aversion to some of the Umno applicants as chairman of the Bersatu membership committee, Muhyiddin used his power as president to reject my recommendations,” said the Pejuang president in a statement.
