ROS Has Repeatedly Advised DAP To Conduct Re-Election – DG


ros dap abdul KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 24- The Registrar of Societies (ROS) has repeatedly advised the DAP to conduct re-election in accordance with, and adherence to the party’s constitution, said ROS director-general Datuk Abdul Rahman Othman.

In a statement here today, he said it was up to DAP to call for a special congress to conduct its business.

“I believe that all DAP members are aware that election of office-bearers requires a national congress and proper notice period, as stipulated in the party’s constitution,” he added.


Abdul Rahman said ROS was upholding justice for all party members, and not only to its committee.

DAP-LOGO-SLIDER“As regulators, we are working on the principle of the Societies Act and not to victimise any society,” he said.

On July 30, ROS ordered DAP to hold a new central executive committee (CEC) elections, saying it was not satisfied with the “technical glitch” explanation given, following allegations of ballot manipulation involving 547 delegates.

On Aug 19, DAP organising secretary Anthony Loke claimed that more than 500 DAP delegates had submitted letters to the party headquarters, admitting that they had received notice for the meeting but could not be present during the party’s CEC election.

DAP initially objected to ROS’ directive but eventually relented and agreed to conduct fresh polls.
