Failure To Grant MUDA Due Process In Its application Is Another Example Of The Assault On Malaysia’s Democracy

The abrupt decision issued by the Home Minister yesterday to reject Malaysian United Democratic Alliance’s (MUDA) appeal for registration suggests that the bizarre handling of MUDA’s application for registration as a political party is due to political interference.

Under the illegitimate Perikatan Nasional government, the nation has seen a significant backsliding of democratic practices including the suspension of Parliament.
The failure to grant MUDA due process in its application is another example of the assault on Malaysia’s democracy by a government which has demonstrated an appetite to violate all Constitutional norms and ethics in order to cling to power.

I call upon the Minister of Home Affairs to grant MUDA a fair and objective review under rules of the Societies Act of 1966.
