The party’s all powerful CEC will meet this Wednesday to discuss it’s contents and issue a statement after that, according to DAP legal bureau chief Gobind Singh Deo
KUALA LUMPUR: DAP legal bureau chief Gobind Singh Deo today announced that the party has finally received official notification from the Registrar of Societies (ROS), 10 days since the agency issued a press statement ordering the Opposition party to hold fresh polls for its central executive committee.
“DAP received official notification of decision from ROS by way of letter this morning. CEC will meet this Wednesday to discuss it’s contents. Statement will be issued after that,” said Gobind briefly on his Facebook page.
In a statement on July 7, the ROS said that it had no intention of deregistering DAP but ordered the party to hold fresh elections for its CEC members.
Following complaints from DAP members, ROS had deemed that the re-election in 2013 was not carried out based on the list of delegates authorised to attend and vote in earlier polls held on Dec 15, 2012.
The polls in 2012 had involved 2,576 delegates from 865 branches.
