DAP to hold national congress on March 20, says Anthony Loke

PETALING JAYA: The Democratic Action Party (DAP) is set to hold its national congress on March 20 at the IDCC Convention Centre in Shah Alam.

DAP national organising secretary Anthony Loke Siew Fook said this was decided during a meeting by the central executive committee (CEC) on Jan 13.

“The date set is in tandem with the advice of the ROS (Registrar of Societies) that our congress had to be held before March 31.

“All eligible representatives are also required to physically attend the congress to place their votes for the incoming central leadership whilst strictly adhering to the standard operating procedures set by the Health Ministry and National Security Council,” said Loke in a statement on Friday (Jan 21).

Loke added that the DAP headquarters would also ensure the conference area would be set up according to the guidelines prepared by the authorities.

Previously, the ROS had allowed the postponement of the congress due to travel restrictions from Covid-19 and was told to hold its convention at a date before March 31.

The ROS had previously allowed the congress to be postponed because of Covid-19 travel restrictions, with the party told to hold its convention before March 31, 2022.
