PPP: Murugiah Vows To Fight Till The End

KUALA LUMPUR, June 3 (Bernama) -- Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Senator Datuk T. Murugiah Wednesday vowed that he would "fight till the end" to defend his post as the legitimate president of the People's Progressive Party (PPP).

He told Bernama that his election as president on May 24 was in accordance with the party's constitution and that he had submitted all the relevant do*****ents to the Registrar of Societies (ROS) for verification.

Murugiah and PPP president Datuk M. Kayveas are embrolied in a tussle to control the party with each claiming to be the legitimate president.

The spat between the two personalities has split the party with each claiming support of the majority.

Murugiah claimed that almost 90 per cent of the party members were now supporting him and that he would meet leaders from 110 divisions tonight to discuss the latest development in the party. Kayveas has rubbished this claim.

Both factions have met the ROS to give their explanation.

According to Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin yesterday, the ROS office had still not completed its investigation.

The Kayveas faction is scheduled to hold its general assembly on Sunday and had invited Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to open the meeting.

However, Najib had indicated that he would attend only when the ROS had ascertained the true situation.

Meanwhile, PPP information chief Datuk Samson Maman, who is aligned to Kayveas, said preparations for the general assembly were in "full swing" with invitations being sent out to the VIPs and observers.

"We are meeting daily to plan every detail to ensure that the assembly proceeds smoothly," he said.

Murugiah said he had information that the Kayveas group was planning to bring in factory workers to fill the Putra World Trade Centre, the venue of the assembly.


Murugiah: Meeting validly convened NST, June 04 2009
KUALA LUMPUR: More than 100 People's Progressive Party (PPP) divisional leaders from all over the country gathered for a dialogue session to back the leadership of the "new" party president Senator Datuk T. Murugiah yesterday. Murugiah, who chaired the session, said the extraordinary general meeting (EGM) that saw him being elected as the new president on May 24, was attended by two thirds of valid members.

The session, held at a hotel here, saw an overcrowded meeting room with members from various races discussing the roles and responsibilities of respective committee members and the direction of the party under the leadership of Murugiah.

Murugiah claimed at a press conference that he had saved the party from being declared illegal as he was quick to submit the relevant do*****ents to the Registrar of Societies (ROS) after the EGM.

"Based on the party constitution, PPP should have held its annual general meeting (AGM) within 18 months of the previous AGM, meaning a meeting should have been called on or before April 21.
"Failure to do so, would mean the party leaders are considered powerless, just like a snake.

"A snake that shed its old skin will be weak and needs a quiet corner to regain new skin and strength."

He said since the AGM was not held on the said date, members could convene an EGM to decide on the future of the party.

"Based on this, the EGM was validly convened and among the pertinent motions passed was the immediate reinstatement of my membership along with six others and the passing of a no-confidence vote against president Datuk M. Kayveas and his supreme council members," he said.

Murugiah also said Kayveas's recent statement that the ROS had given him approval for the AGM this Sunday was a lie.

He alleged that the members who would attend the upcoming AGM had been paid to do so.

"Kayveas should also stop saying Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had agreed to attend the opening of the AGM, when the PM clearly said he would not attend any meetings until he receives the report from the ROS," said Murugiah.
