Bersih can formally challenge the Home Ministry’s ban

The Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections (Bersih 2.0) can formally challenge the Home Ministry’s ban of the electoral reform movement.

The Kuala Lumpur High Court (Appellate and Special Powers) division today grant the NGO coalition leave (permission) to challenge the order by the Home Ministry and the government.

Justice Rohana Yusof said she found Bersih 2.0’s application, headed by lawyer and chairperson Ambiga Sreenevasan, and 14 other steering committee members to be ‘not frivolous’.

In ruling to dismiss the preliminary objection by the government, Justice Rohana fixed Nov 22 to hear the merits of the application.
