Perkasa Wants To Hold Rally In Stadium, Have Audience With King
KUALA LUMPUR, July 6 (Bernama) -- The Malay right-wing movement Perkasa said today it would go ahead with its rally scheduled for July 9, but in a stadium, and that it was seeking an audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.
Its president, Datuk Ibrahim Ali, said the movement had applied to have the rally at the Merdeka Stadium, Stadium Negara or Titiwangsa Stadium.
"We have applied for the police permit and sent applications to the stadiums concerned," he told reporters after a meeting of the Perkasa supreme council, here.
He said Perkasa had also sought an audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to explain the current situation and obtain the advice of the king.
Ibrahim, who is the Pasir Mas MP, said Perkasa had also sought a meeting with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, either tomorrow or the day after.
tunku : by right perkasa request or application should be processed first as it is a legal group.it is registered while Bersih is illegal as it is not registered.i don't understand how will the police issue permit to an illegal body to hold a rally? where is the logic? what is so special about Bersih? why they are given special attention? if they are given permit then the police should give to others unregistered bodies too.let them apply the permit using a legal and registered body not an illegal one.
