PUTRAJAYA, May 26 (Bernama) -- Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin
Yassin said today he was neutral and was not taking any stand as to the
crisis that broke in the People's Progressive Party (PPP).
"Yes...Kayveas (PPP president M Kayveas) met me at my office today
and explained what was happening in the party and I listened...but I
did not take any stand on the matter," he told reporters after meeting
with representatives from Chinese associations on education matters at
his office here, Tuesday.
Muhyiddin said as Barisan Nasional (BN) deputy chairman it was
important for him to know the status of the party and how its
leadership could resolve the problems besetting it.
On Sunday, Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department
Senator Datuk T. Murugiah was elected as the "new president" at an
extraordinary general meeting held at the Putrajaya International
Convention Centre here.
Muhyiddin added that he would meet Murugiah next to hear his side of the story.
"The meeting (with Murugiah) might be held in a day or two," he said.
In IPOH, Kayveas said he would submit several do*****ent's
pertaining to the party's annual report to the Registrar of Societies
He said this needed to be done as the do*****ents concerned had gone missing apparently due to sabotage.
He told this to reporters after opening the Perak PPP annual convention in Bukit Kinding here.
Kayveas was responding to allegations that the party's records were not in order since 2002.
PPP, a component party of the BN, plunged into crisis after
Murugiah, who is also a PPP supreme council member, and several other
leaders of the party were expelled by the party's disciplinary board
