ROS Calls For Re-Election Of DAP's CEC Members

ROS Calls For Re-Election Of DAP's CEC Members”

The DAP will hold an emergency meeting today in Kuala Lumpur to discuss a directive from the Registrar of Societies (RoS) for the party to hold re-elections for its Central Executive Committee (CEC).

"Although my ministry is responsible for RoS, I am handing this matter over to them to conduct what I have stressed before, which is to safeguard the interests of the members and act professionally according to what is stipulated in the party's constitution and the Societies Act", he added.

"We will have an emergency meeting tomorrow afternoon and we will discuss what is our next course of action".

DAP legal bureau chief Gobind Singh Deo said he was informed of the ROS decision, but would wait for a formal letter from the regulator before deciding on the party's next course of action.

He said the final decision would be made by the CEC in today's meeting, however, it would be subject to RoS' official letter issued to the party.

"For me, I see this as BN's way to make us busy with our own internal election, divert our attention from national politics", she said.

DAP should stop being defensive over the Registry of Societies' (RoS) directive to hold a second re-election for its Central Executive Committee (CEC), and just carry on with it.

"Some of these delegates are no more with the party and some have become inactive and some might have changed address", the Seputeh MP told Malay Mail Online, adding that it takes months to prepare for party polls.

"RoS is an organisation to look after the interests of members in any association including political parties".

"The re-election should be based on the list of delegates entitled to attend and vote for DAP's CEC elections dated Dec 15, 2012, involving 2,576 delegates from 865 branches", he said.

According to RoS director-general Datuk Mohammad Razin Abdullah, the previous appointment of 20 CEC members and the party's key office bearers on Sept 29, 2013, was in breach of the law.

The 14th general elections is due by August 2018 but speculation is that it will be held earlier.
