KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 27 ― Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has resumed his post as Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia chairman, days after vacating the post.

Bersatu Supreme Council member Datuk Rais Hussin Mohamed Arif confirmed the matter to Malay Mail when contacted.

“True,” he told Malay Mail when asked for confirmation.


Bersatu secretary-general Datuk Marzuki Yahya also has confirmed the news to state news agency Bernama.

Rais said Dr Mahathir accepted the post today.

Dr Mahathir sent in his resignation as Bersatu chairman shortly after he resigned as the PM.


However, the Bersatu supreme council had unanimously rejected Dr Mahathir’s resignation as chairman.
