MUAR: Speaking at a press conference here today, PPBM president Muhyiddin Yassin today dismissed talk of a split in the party, saying there is no “Team Muhyiddin” and “Team Mahathir”.
Muhyiddin reiterated that there is only “Team PPBM”, adding that there are no problems in his relationship with Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who is prime minister and chairman of the party.
Muhyiddin also dismissed talk and media reports that several members of the new line-up of Johor state executive councillors were from the so-called Team Muhyiddin, as reportedly alleged by Mazlan Bujang who was dropped as a state executive councillor.
The new Johor menteri besar, Dr Sahruddin Jamal, has also denied this, saying that he picked the new state executive councillors himself. Sahruddin replaced Osman Sapian who resigned as the menteri besar.
Muhyiddin also said that when Mazlan was in the state executive council, he never said that he was in Team Muhyiddin.
