The Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC), representing MUDA, have said that they have no objection against the suit. The Syed Saddiq led party is seeking to compel Home Minister Hamzah Zainuddin to make a decision under Section 18 of the Societies Act.
MUDA’s application for registration was rejected by RoS earlier this year, however, no reasons were given. The party filed an appeal to the home minister again in February, but no response has been received yet.
The RoS has also rejected the request by Pejuang, led by Dr Mahathir Mohamad, for registration.
Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s party too has filed a similar case, a hearing is scheduled on June 23.
