Former Puteri Umno chief Datuk Mas Ermieyati Samsudin is the latest addition into Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia.
According to Mas Ermieyati, she made the decision after thinking long and hard about the matter and she is joining Bersatu to better serve voters at her Masjid Tanah parliamentary constituency.
“God willing, I hope to be able to assist Bersatu’s efforts in implementing the agenda of strengthening young women, as well as to fight for the welfare of the youth so they are able to have a better life and future.”
In a statement issued on Dec 13, Mas Ermieyati also thanked Bersatu chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and the party’s leadership for accepting her into the party.
“It is time for everyone to cast aside their political beliefs to find a common ground for the interests of the people,” she added.
She also posted a photo on Facebook, which showed her handing over her membership form to Dr Mahathir.
Mas Ermieyati left Umno on July 1.
