ROS: Many DAP members did not receive notice to attend congress

Investigations by the Registrar of Societies (ROS) found many DAP members who were eligible to attend its national congress on Dec 15 last year, did not receive notice, said ROS director-general Datuk Abdul Rahman Othman.

He said the finding was made after investigations were made on complaints by DAP members on not being given the notice.
"DAP members who did not receive the notice were denied the right to vote and choose the leaders they wanted at the congress," he said in a statement on Thursday.

In the statement, Abdul Rahman also stated that ROS would continue investigations on other issues raised by complainants, and go through all documents submitted before arriving at a decision on the validity of the congress based on the Societies Act 1966.

The election of DAP's Central Executive Committee (CEC) at the congress became a bone of contention after complaints were lodged by various members that the party did not give notice on it to 753 delegates who were valid voters.
