Lawyer: Najib cannot sign polls candidates’ appointments
Umno president and BN chairperson Najib Abdul Razak cannot sign the letters of appointment for candidates from Umno and BN in the coming general election following questions raised on Umno’s legality.
This was stated by lawyer Mohd Haniff Khatri Abdulla, who represented the 16 Umno members who filed a judicial review application today to challenge the decision of the Registrar of Societies (ROS) to extend the period from holding the Umno leadership elections until April next year.
Haniff said the party supreme council and divisions ceased to exist effective today, while the Umno branches ceased to exist effective March 1.
“Hence Najib cannot sign the watikah (credentials) of the candidates due to the questionable position of Umno,” he told reporters.
Sixteen Umno members seek to compel ROS to dissolve Umno
Sixteen Umno branch members have filed an application for leave to proceed with a judicial review to quash the Registrar of Societies’ (ROS) decision to allow Umno a time extension to hold its party elections at all levels.
The application was filed with the Kuala Lumpur High Court.
The 16, from 11 branches in six states, named the ROS and Umno organising secretary Abdul Rauf Yusoh as respondents.
The applicants are also seeking a mandamus order to compel the ROS to utilise Section 13, 14, 16 and 66 of the Societies Act to investigate the party based on the correspondence it sent to the ROS.
Alternatively, the applicants are seeking a mandamus order to compel the ROS to take action against Rauf for allegedly violating Article 9.3, Article 9.4, 15.3, 18.2 and 10.16 of the Umno constitution for not holding the party elections within the 18 months provided for.
In addition to this, the applicants also sought for the de-registration of Umno once the ROS completed its investigations into the alleged violations.
The applicants also sought to compel the ROS to issue a notice under Section 14(2) and 14(5) under the Societies Act for provisional dissolution and permanent dissolution.
The applicants are also seeking for the court to compel the ROS to suspend all Umno’s activities until the disposal of the judicial review.
The applicants are also seeking a declaration that all Umno branches do not have legal effect, as well as all party divisions and the Umno supreme council, be dissolved effective today, April 20, 2018.
They are further seeking the dissolution of Umno effective today.
