Masir: DAP can’t hold re-election without RoS ‘official letter’

 | July 16, 2017

The deputy home minister says he will check with RoS on reason for delay in issuing official letter.


PETALING JAYA: Deputy Home Minister Masir Kujat said the Registrar of Societies (RoS) must issue an official letter ordering DAP to hold fresh elections for its top leadership.

He said the instruction could not be done through a verbal directive, reported Malaysiakini.

Registrar of Societies (RoS) director general Mohammad Razin Abdullah had issued a directive through a press statement on July 7 for DAP to call for a re-election of its central executive committee after the Sept 29, 2013, election had been deemed unlawful.

When asked why Razin had not issued an official letter yet to DAP to hold a re-election of the central executive committee, Masir said: “I will check with the RoS on the reason for the delay in issuing the official letter to DAP. The party should have one before it can call for the re-election.”

He added DAP would not take the RoS instruction seriously in the absence of the official letter.

“I expect the RoS to issue the official letter either this week or next week,” said the Sri Aman MP after attending the Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) supreme council meeting in Kuching today.

He agreed that the party cannot hold its re-election if there is no official letter.

On July 12, DAP’s legal bureau chief Gobind Singh Deo gave the RoS 48 hours to issue the letter, or else the party would consider its options to deal with the matter.

He had said the party could not hold a re-election of its CEC as ordered “without official communication from the RoS”.

‘Unprofessional’ RoS chief should quit, says DAP
