The registrar of Societies (RoS) has provisionally deregistered parti Pribumi. RoS has however allowed Umno a second extension for the party to hold its internal polls.
Now, people are saying RoS might have overstepped her duty in allowing Umno a second postponement when that is not provided for in Umno's own constitution.
Nor is there any provision in the Societies Act that empowers the RoS to do what she has done.
So, is Umno now an illegal party for breaching its own constitution?
Hahaha... where does all this lead Bolehland to?
A suit by 16 Umno members for judicial review of the RoS' decision. As well they should.
As expected, Umno's smart alecks now rush to tell amused Bolehlanders that no decision of the party can be questioned in any court of law because of an ouster clause in the Societies Act.
Not so-amused Bolehlanders tell them, Umno might as well throw away its constitution and do as they like.
Why make pretend with a constitution if it need not be complied with?
And why bother with a registrar of societies in the first place?
Bolehlanders' only hope is for the nation's judiciary do duty to their role as an independent last bastion of justice, wise and fearless in judgment.
