PKN an NGO, not a political party, says Zuraida

Penggerak Komuniti Negara (PKN) is not a political party but an NGO set up to support the government agenda’s to aid the people, says Housing and Local Government Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin.

She said that the NGO, registered on June 16, is part of the government’s implementation of the National Community Policy under her ministry.

“PKN is a national NGO to support the government agenda under the National Community Policy in line with community empowerment.

“It is an NGO, not a political party, ” said Zuraida when contacted on Thursday (June 18).

Pictures of PKN’s registration certificate issued by the Registrar of Societies under Section 7 of the Societies Act 1966 at an address in Putrajaya had gone viral.

Messages accompanying the pictures alleged that PKN was a political party set up to prepare for the next general election.

Checks on PKN’s Facebook page showed that its activities revolved mostly around disbursing aid to the needy.

The PKR secretariat has warned, via a circular on April 29, that immediate disciplinary action would be taken against anyone from the party joining PKN, which was initially an organisation set up under PKR.

Recently, there has been much talk of a new political party to be set up by Senior Minister (Economy) Datuk Seri Azmin Ali and Zuraida to cater for those who had left or kicked out from PKR.

The nine PKR MPs who left the party have currently parked themselves under Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia.

However, on Wednesday (June 17), Azmin and Bersatu secretary-general Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainuddin denied that a new political party was on the cards.

Hamzah, who is also the Home Minister, said these were merely rumours and if Azmin had indeed registered a new political party, he would announce it.

‘We are here to serve the people and not play politics’

PETALING JAYA: Perikatan Nasional will remain focused on providing service to the people and there will be no talk of creating a new political party, says Senior Minister Datuk Seri Azmin Ali.

He also said that Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has proven his leadership during the Covid-19 pandemic by introducing economic packages, such as the National Economic Revival Plan (Penjana) and Prihatin Rakyat Economic Stimulus Package (Prihatin).null

“There is no question of opening a new political party.

“Our focus is on ensuring a stable and strong government with the Prime Minister focused on solving the country’s health and economic issues.null

“He has proven that he is able to solve such a mammoth crisis, ” he said referring to the pandemic.

“Our focus remains on providing service to the people post-Covid-19 in a challenging economy.

“Prihatin and Penjana are efforts from the government as proof that the problems and worries of the people are being addressed, ” he told reporters after presenting awards at the 2019 excellent service awards to the staff of International Trade and Industry Ministry and Department of Standards Malaysia.

Azmin said the Perikatan Nasional government has been running smoothly without issues and no one is talking about the prime minister’s post or who will take over.

“No one has asked (within Perikatan) who the PM will be during the past three months (when Perikatan took over the Federal Government).

“It has been peaceful for three months. If Pakatan enters again, that will be the discussion everyday. I am PM8 (eighth prime minister), I am PM9, I am PM10. Enough is enough, ” he said, referring to the PM succession issue which had dogged Pakatan Harapan throughout its 22-month tenure.

He was also asked of his views on the resignation of Sementa assemblyman Dr Daroyah Alwi and grassroots leaders from the party on June 13.

He said that it is time his former party PKR stopped “victimising” its members by dragging them into the squabbles between two individuals who want to become the prime minister.

“PKR has to take the responsibility (of those leaving the party).

“There is one person who needs to carry out a self-reflection, ” said Azmin without naming the person.
