Najib: I will verify PPP status

KUALA LUMPUR, May 26 — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said he would verify the status of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) before deciding whether to accept the party’s invitation to open its general assembly.

Najib, who is also Barisan Nasional chairman, said the PPP had invited him to open the general assembly on June 7.

“I will verify PPP’s status with the Registrar of Societies (ROS) first,” he told reporters after opening the Felda Group gathering here today.

The PPP was thrown into crisis when ousted supreme council member Datuk T. Murugiah got himself elected as “president” at an emergency general meeting (EGM) in Putrajaya on Sunday.

PPP president Datuk M. Kayveas retorted by saying that the EGM was illegal as Murugiah had failed to notify party secretary-general about it, and that his (Murugiah’s) own branch had been de-registered by the ROS.

Murugiah said he would leave it to the ROS to decide whether the EGM was lawful and if he was the rightful PPP president.
