KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 20 — Pakatan Harapan (PH) needs to resolve issues with the DAP and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) before it can be approved as a formal coalition, Home Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said today.
The deputy prime minister said among the issues that the Opposition coalition needs to address includes the final report of the DAP’s re-elected central executive committee and PPBM’s amendment to its party constitution.
Ahmad Zahid said the Home Ministry has already ordered the Registrar of Societies (RoS) to let PH know of any necessary requirements they need to meet.
“PH must respect all rules which has been set. The application cannot be passed because a few issues among them have not been resolved.
“We have ordered the RoS to inform them on any rectification that needs to be done,” he said at a press conference in Parliament today.
Home Ministry secretary-general Datuk Seri Alwi Ibrahim said the application will be expedited once the necessary terms are met by PH.
“We have our own laws and each party has their own constitution. They have to follow it. They have to follow their own constitution.
“The two things have to be immediately resolved so that we can take the next step in registration,” he said.
Ahmad Zahid also stressed that there was nothing political about the application not being approved and the RoS will act “professionally” in all cases.
“This is an operational matter. RoS is under KDN but I do not involve myself in any of the suggestions made to accept or reject any application,” he said, using the Malay initials for the Home Ministry.
