KUALA LUMPUR, 12 May 2009: The People’s Progressive Party (PPP) may recommend one of its vice-presidents to replace Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk T Murugiah.
PPP president Datuk M Kayveas said he would give the candidate’s name to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak soon.
“We will suggest a more senior member, we must follow the hierarchy. When we give a junior member, it will create problems,” he told reporters after attending the opening of the 63rd Umno anniversary celebration here last night.
Last Saturday, Kayveas announced that Murugiah was expelled as he was alleged to have been involved in money politics. He was also accused of challenging the party presidency in the PPP elections next month.
Yesterday, Murugiah received two bullet casings and a note at his office in Putrajaya warning him against contesting for any posts in PPP. — Bernama
