GEORGE TOWN: THE DAP risks not being able to use its rocket logo if it is deemed illegal by the Registrar of Societies (ROS), says a Malay non-governmental organisation (NGO).
Penang Malay Congress (PMC) president Rahamad Ishak said that the reason the party's logo might not be able to be used was because the ROS might declare the party illegal following its technical hiccup during its party elections last year.
Rahamad expressed confidence that the ROS would be able to investigate the glitch without being influenced by any quarters and if it did take place, the DAP would be automatically disbanded — creating a new political phenomenon in the country.
"It will create history as it will be the first time a party would not be allowed to use its logo and that might impact its image and performance during the election and campaign period.
"The candidates might have to contest under an independent ticket or use the Pas or Parti Keadilan Rakyat logo and in these crucial times, the term “multi-racial party” plays a very important role," he said in a statement here yesterday.
