SUPP faction seeking ROS probe into branch elections
PUTRAJAYA, Dec 1 — The Sarawak United People's Party (SUPP) wants the Registrar of Societies (ROS) to investigate alleged irregularities at its branch elections in the past fortnight.
This is to ensure the upcoming party elections are fair and transparent, said deputy secretary-general Datuk Seri Wong Soon Koh to Bernama Online.
He spoke after meeting with ROS and Deputy Home Minister Datuk Lee Chee Leong today.
Wong said he wanted to keep the membership in general satisified that everything is above board.
SUPP branches flouting party constitution were risking deregistration said State Registrar Kent Leben.
He added that time was not on their side as the Triennial Delegates Conference (TDC) is on December 10-11.
He said they approached ROS because the party central election committee has not acted on the allegations.
Wong is contesting the party presidency against federal minister Peter Chin.
He also clarified that there were no moves for SUPP to merge with MCA. Wong concluded that they were seeking advice from the ROS, but were firmly with the Barisan Nasional.
