ROS wrong to reject PSMs application, court told

The Registrar of Societies had no right to reject the application by Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) to register itself as a political party as the latter had satisfied all the requirements in the Societies Act, a Kuala Lumpur High Court heard today.

PSM counsel R Kesavan submitted this to Justice Abdul Hamid Said in a courtroom packed with party supporters.

He said both the home minister and registrar have not acted in accordance to the provisions in the Societies Act when they decided to reject the application.

Kesavan is representing PSM pro tem chairperson Dr Mohd Nasir Hashim who is applying to the High Court for orders to set aside the ROS decision to reject his application to register PSM as a political party under Section 18 of the Societies Act, 1966.
