The members are urged to ignore them.
- The Supreme Council also took notice of the newspapers report on last Friday where it was reported that the Party’s Ex Secretary General YB Datuk Teo Chee Kang that he had filed an action in Court on Friday.

They have rebelled against te Party and have no respect to the Party’s Constitution. Further, they have been given ample time to resolve the matters or disputes, if any, with the President but they refused, failed and/or neglected to do so.
