Parti Rakyat Malaysia has won a decision at the High Court in Jalan Duta today against its dissolution.
Eight former PRM members who are now PKR leaders were seeking to dissolve the party.
In the end, the judge ruled in PRM’s favour.
According to a PRM leader, Rohana Ariffin, there were no provisions in the party’s constitution governing dissolution. Thus, she said, the court held that the Societies Act applies – in which case, the party should have convened a final congress to obtain its members’ approval for the dissolution of the party. This, she said, was not done.
So, for now, PRM still survives as a party.
