MyPPP sacks Kayveas as member following letter from Ku Nan
KUALA LUMPUR, April 25 ― MyPPP has sacked Tan Sri M. Kayveas as a member of the party following a disciplinary proceeding prompted by a letter from Barisan Nasional secretary general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor.
MyPPP secretary general Datuk Mohan Kandasamy said that the party central working committee has made a decision unanimously to strip Kayveas of all positions in the party, two days after he quit as the party chief.
Vice president Datuk Maglin Dennis D’cruz will be taking over as acting president, Mohan announced.
He also said that MyPPP initiated action against Kayveas before it even received an official notice regarding his resignation from the party.
“We only knew about the letter after our CWC meeting,” Mohan said.
The letter from Tengku Adnan yesterday had asked the party to consider disciplinary action against Kayveas.
“The letter also seemed to imply that we may be asked to leave BN if we did not take action,” party information chief Simon Suresh said.
The letter came days after Kayveas threatened to bring MyPPP out of BN after MIC was given the Cameron Highlands seat, which he was eyeing.
Yesterday, MIC was also given the Buntong state seat in Perak, despite MyPPP eyeing the seat as well.

KUALA LUMPUR: The government should not entertain “ill-considered and irresponsible” calls to reintroduce the Internal Security Act (ISA), cautioned the Gerakan’s Central Bureau of Laws and Human Rights in a statement.
The government should instead further commit itself to “human and civil rights enhancement”, said Baljit Singh, who heads the Gerakan bureau.
The lawyer was expressing his objections, in the wake of Bersih 5, to bringing back the ISA.
Several parties have also called for public figures, suspected of corruption, to be detained without a court order.
Baljit reminded that Prime Minister Najib Razak had previously said the ISA would be repealed along with emergency ordinances, declarations and restrictions.
“This reflects the wishes of the people and their maturity;” said Baljit, warning that reintroducing the ISA was a backward move.
“It goes against society endorsing human and civil rights,” he said.
In any case, he said, Gerakan was against reverting to the notorious ISA era.
Baljit recalled that when the draconian Act was in force, there was uncontrolled executive power to accuse, adjudicate and imprison for indefinite periods without authority of the courts.
The reasons for reintroducing the ISA were completely invalid, he added.
Kayveas: Bring back ISA to control Bersih?
PETALING JAYA: People’s Progressive Party leader M Kayveas is reported to have suggested that the Bersih reform group had “gone out of control”, and his party might propose bringing back the Internal Security Act.
The ISA, which provides for preventive detention, was repealed in 2012.
Kayveas, speaking at the party’s convention in Ipoh today, described Bersih as a group worse than terrorists. “They’ve gone out of control. Perhaps, myPPP will propose for the Internal Security Act to be re-enacted once again, that way, it would be easier to control them,” he was quoted as saying.
He also challenged the reform group to stand on its own instead of depending on the support of political parties “then we shall see if Malaysians truly support Bersih”.
“If they do, then I would also stand with them,” he reportedly said, accusing the group of being “just another branch of the opposition”, according to The Star Online.
