PETALING JAYA: Parti Keadilan Rakyat, the merged entity of Parti Keadilan Nasional (Keadilan) and Parti Rakyat Malaysia (PRM), will be launched on Aug 3 at the Chinese Assembly Hall in Kuala Lumpur even without approval from the Registrar of Societies (ROS). 

However, the newly-merged political party would only proceed with the formalities of the merger including integrating its membership after ROS’ approval, said its protem secretary-general Abdul Rahman Othman yesterday. 

Abdul Rahman said the launch would go ahead so that people would know what the party’s stand on various issues was. 

“There will be a transitional leadership. Once we get ROS’ approval, we will hold a national congress which will then elect a new leadership,” he added. 

Abdul Rahman said the launch would mark two years of merger discussions between the two opposition parties.
