He said his resignation was made in line with a personal stance to not be likened to a list of politicians – mostly now in government – branded as the “court cluster”.

Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has confirmed Wan Saiful’s resignation.

The Bersatu president, however, said this decision is not an acknowledgement that Wan Saiful is guilty.

“This is a standard that we want to set against any allegations or perceptions against Bersatu. He himself volunteered to hand in his resignation, I appreciate his decision.

“His post will be filled with another supreme council member, we will appoint immediately as the post is important since we will face state elections soon,” Muhyiddin told a press conference.

He added that this step would alleviate any negative views towards the party.

“This is not a form of punishment, it’s voluntary, which I think is very honourable,” he said.
