Will The Registrar Of Societies(ROS) Dare To Meet Me After Hari Raya Holidays To Explain Why He Believe The Unsubstantiated Lies Of Utusan Malaysia and New Straits Times Instead Of Facts Verified By An Accounting Firm And State The Reasons For That DAP Has To Conduct Re-elections?(en/cn)

Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 7.8.2013.

Will the ROS Datuk Abdul Rahman Othman dare to meet me after Hari Raya holidays to explain why he believe the unsubstantiated lies of Utusan Malaysia(UM) and New Straits Times(NST) instead of facts verified by an accounting firm and state the reasons for that DAP has to conduct fresh elections? I have written a letter to him requesting such a meeting.

ROS has repeatedly behaved unprofessionally, unethically and even unlawfully by making media announcements that had no factual or legal basis. Worse, the ROS makes announcements in the media without any written replies, giving the strong impression of wanting to politicise the issue for the benefit of BN instead of fulfilling their duties in regulating the Societies impartially and lawfully.

By reiterating in the press that there must be fresh re-elections because he is dissatisfied without needing to give reasons, the ROS is behaving as if he is a King whereby he can make any diktats at his whim and fancy. Is Datuk Abdul Rahman refusing to give reasons because he has no valid reasons to give?

The DAP had fully co-operated with the Registrar of Societies and if the ROS claims otherwise, he should show proof as we have met ROS and provided all information as requested. If the ROS dares not meet me, then that validates our fears that this new directive is an act of political victimisation and revenge against the DAP.

DAP had admitted that a computer glitch at the DAP Congress in Penang caused the wrong announcement of the successful candidates. There was no mistake either in vote counting or tabulation but only in posting the results, leading to one candidate Vincent Wu wrongly announced as a successful candidate when it should be Zairil Khir Johari.

This mistake had been duly rectified by reinstating Zairil Khir Johari as the winning candidate. DAP had fully explained this honest mistake to the officials from the Registrar of Societies by furnishing all relevant materials. The mistake was admitted voluntarily by DAP without being exposed by ROS or BN in the interests of upholding transparency and accountability. DAP is now being punished for being honest and truthful and is a victim of an abuse of power.

DAP has right to know the reasons why and under what powers the Registrar of Societies is directing the DAP to hold re-election of its Central Executive Committee (CEC), which was elected in the DAP Party Congress in Penang last December. To hint that the DAP grassroots want elections because 753 DAP delegates had been denied their right to attend the DAP Congress in Penang last December is a lie.

There are no complaints made by as many as 753 delegates that they were not notified of the Congress. So is the false claim of 547 “phantom” delegates attending the Congress, which are all lies concocted by the imagination of UM and NST. Only a few members out of 200,000 DAP members complained. If that is the basis, then PR have a greater claim towards being the Federal government due to the majority popular support of 51% during the last general elections.

As the ROS appears to believe these lies by UM and NST, DAP has no choice but to sue the BN-controlled media for defamation to expose these lies. Is the failure by ROS to state the reasons because ROS know that these are lies? DAP stresses that if the reasons given are reasonable and the provision of law employed by ROS is lawful, DAP has no hesitation in calling for fresh re-elections.

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2013年8月7日在吉隆坡发表声明:

社团注册官敢不敢在开斋节假期后与我见面,以解释他为何相信《马来西亚前锋报》及《新海峡时报》毫无根据的谎言,而不是会计公司的稽查,也不愿意列出要行动党举行重选的理由?

社团注册官拿督阿都拉曼敢不敢在开斋节假期后与我见面,以解释他为何相信《马来西亚前锋报》及《新海峡时报》毫无根据的谎言,而不是会计公司的稽查,也不愿意列出要行动党举行重选的理由?我已经就此事至函给他要求会面。

社团注册局一再地表现其不专业、不道德、不合法的行为,他们在没有事实根据的基础上发表媒体声明。更糟的是,社团注册团在媒体上发表声明而不是以书面复函,给予人们强烈的印象是为了国阵的利益而将这项课题政治化,并不是为了履行他们公正、合法地管理社团的责任。

他在媒体上重申行动党必须举行重选,因为他不满意而且不需要给予任何解释,社团注册官好像自己是王,可以随心所欲的发出绝对指令。拿督阿都拉曼拒绝给理由,是不是因为他根本拿不出正当的理由?

行动党已经与社团注册局全面合作,如果他们不认同,他应该拿出证据,我们已经见过社团注册局并提供所有必须的资料。如果农业为社团注册局不敢与我见面,那只是证明我们的担心是事实,那就是这项新的指示,是一项针对行动党的政治加害及报复行动。

行动党已经承认在槟城的全国党代表大会出现电脑技术错误,导致几个候选人的票数出错,当中并没有计算或列表的错误,只是在成绩张帖时出错。这项错误导致伍薪荣被错误宣布为中选,而其实中选者是再里尔。

这项错误也已经过检查认证,并重申再里尔为中选的候选人。行动党已经据实向社团注册局坦诚交代这项错误,并提供所有资料。这项错误是行动党秉持透明度及问责而自愿承认,而不是等到社团注册局或国阵来揭发。如今,行动党却因为诚实而被惩罚,并成为滥权的受害者。

行动党有权利知道,社团注册局以什么理由、依据哪一条法律条文来指示行动党重新进行中委选举?去年12月党代表大会已经在槟城选出中委。他们暗示是行动党基层要求重选,因为共有753名行动党中央代表没有受通知出席槟州的代表大会是一个谎言。

根本没有753名代表投诉他们没有接获通知,这样的声明与547名“幽灵”代表出席大会一样,简直是谎言。这些都是《前锋报》及《新海峡时报》所编造的谎言。20万行动党党员中,只有数名代表投诉。如果这样也可以是依据,那么民联也有权利声称自己是联邦政府,因为我们在大选中获得51%的支持率。

由于社团注册局看起来宁可相信《前锋报》及《新海峡时报》,行动党别无选择,唯有起诉国阵控制的媒体诽谤,以揭穿他们的谎言。社团注册局拿不出要我们重选的理由,是不是他们其实知道这些都是谎言?行动党强调,如果当局拿得出合理的理由及合法的法律条文,行动党将毫不犹豫地举行重选。
