KUALA LUMPUR: Parti Keadilan Nasional has hit out at the Registrar of Societies for taking an “extraordinarily long time” to approve changes to its constitution which would enable its merger with Parti Rakyat Malaysia (PRM). 

Keadilan deputy president Abdul Rahman Othman said the party had submitted its application for amendments regarding its name, logo and some policies last November but it had not yet received any word from the ROS. 

“All I can say is that it is taking an extraordinarily long time to approve our amendments although they are not very extensive.  

“This reflects on the efficiency of the government machinery,” he said in an interview. 

He questioned the reason for the delay, pointing out that when Keadilan made more extensive amendments to its constitution in 2001, it only took five months for the ROS to approve them. 

However, Abdul Rahman appeared confident that its latest amendments would be approved before the next general election.
