Read the letter again, Guan Eng

(Bernama) – Registrar of Societies (ROS) director-general Abdul Rahman Othman has once again told DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng to read and understand its statement on the party’s central executive committee (CEC) re-election.

He said the ROS had never said that DAP could not hold a Special Congress but had instead just reminded the party to comply with its own constitution during the election.

“They must comply with the sending of notice for election to members within ten weeks as stated in the party constitution,” he said in a statement here yesterday.

He noted that the court action against DAP over its disorganised CEC election was taken by its own members and not linked to ROS in any way.

“Its not fair to link ROS to this matter as the legal action was taken by their own people,” he said.

Abdul Rahman further pointed out that although Section 18C of the Societies Act 1966 stated that a party’s affairs were final, conclusive and not actionable in court, it did not mean that ROS was not authorised to uphold the truth, especially when party members were affected.
