DAP submits CEC results to RoS

DAP-Anthony-Loke-submitting-the-party-CEC-list-to-RoS-officer-1PUTRAJAYA: DAP today submitted a report to the Registrar of Societies (RoS) on the re-election of its central executive committee (CEC) which was held on Nov 12.

National organising secretary Anthony Loke said DAP had followed all requirements to ensure it would be able to prepare for the coming general election (GE14).

The party was now awaiting a response from the RoS, he added.

“We hope the RoS will not take a long time to make an official statement.

“We were to submit it within 60 days. This follows the rules and regulations of the RoS,” he told reporters after handing over the report at the RoS office.

Loke told the officer who came to collect the documents that DAP was submitting its CEC line-up and its financial statement for 2015.

“We hope the report fulfils all the requirements needed for the coming election,” he said.

Loke, who is Seremban MP, said DAP hoped there would be no other issues along the way.

The dispute over DAP’s 2012 election was revived in July, three years after the matter was thought to have been settled between the party and RoS.

On July 7, the RoS issued a statement saying it had instructed DAP to hold a fresh election for its CEC as it had decided that the party’s earlier election, held on Sept 29, 2013, was not in accordance with the law.

The new line-up saw 90% of DAP’s top leadership remain unchanged.

The re-election also saw DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang securing the highest number of votes.

Four days after the re-election, however, RoS director-general Surayati Ibrahim said it had yet to receive a report from DAP.
