Pengerusi SPR: DAP masih boleh bertanding. EC chief says DAP can still contest

DAP will be able to field candidates as usual on nomination day
DAP masih boleh mengemukakan calon seperti biasa pada hari penamaan calon tanpa mengira keputusan Pendaftar Pertubuhan (ROS) untuk menggantung jawatankuasa pusat parti itu.

Ini telah disahkan oleh Pengerusi Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya (SPR), Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusoff.

"Tidak affect bolih bertanding," kata Abdul Aziz.

ROS telah memaklumkan kepada DAP bahawa ia tidak mengiktiraf barisan baru jawatankuasa eksekutif pusat (CEC) parti itu yang dipilih akhir tahun lalu ekoran kesilapan teknikal dalam penjadualan (tabulation) undi.

Berikutan itu, ROS telah mengarahkan jawatankuasa pusat parti itu dibekukan sehingga siasatan selesai.

Satu salinan surat ROS kepada DAP telah dihantar kepada SPR.

DAP will be able to field candidates as usual on nomination day, regardless of the Registrar of Societies' (ROS) decision to suspend the party's central committee.

This was confirmed by Election Commission (EC) chairperson Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusoff this afternoon.

"It will not affect, they can contest," Aziz said in a text message reply toMalaysiakini.

Abdul Aziz was asked on the ROS letter citing the suspension of DAP's central committee , whether it would affect the party in placing its candidates in this election.

The ROS has just informed the DAP that it does not recognise the party office bearers elected late last year, following to a technical glitch in the tabulation of votes.

In view of this, the ROS ordered the DAP central committee to be frozen until its investigations are completed.

A copy of the ROS letter to DAP was sent to the EC.
