Selangor rep claims bias in ROS not yet approving Pejuang's registration


A Selangor assemblyperson claimed Pejuang has yet to be registered due to bias by the Registrar of Societies (ROS).

Jeram lawmaker Mohd Shaid Rosli (photo, above) said this is as Perikatan Nasional's (PN) registration appeared to have been fast-tracked.

"I feel there is an element of bias following the registration of PN, which was approved by the department immediately in a dubious process.

"I also urge the home minister (Hamzah Zainudin) to do his job. He needs to resolve this problem under his ministry and protect the ministry's integrity," Mohd Shaid said in a statement today.

Pejuang, a Bersatu offshoot party led by former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad, filed their application with the ROS in August.

That same month, PN was registered and its logo unveiled, two weeks before the Sabah state election kicked off.

Yesterday, the ROS said Pejuang's application was still being reviewed, and that it had informed the party of the need for complete documentation for the registration process.

Mahathir formed Pejuang after he and several others were kicked out of Bersatu for refusing to sit with PN during the May Parliament session.

The nonagenarian had a falling out with Bersatu president Muhyiddin Yassin - who is now prime minister - after the latter took the party out of Pakatan Harapan in February, leading to a change of government.

Mahathir has positioned Pejuang as an independent party, which he aims to be a kingmaker in the next general election. - Mkini
