HUGE DEMO IF RASHID'S TENURE EXTENDED - BERSIH

It has been reported that BERSIH will launch a huge demonstration if the government extends the service of Tan Sri Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman, the Election Commissioner, following the recent amendments approved by the Dewan Rakyat to extend the age from 65 to 66 years although there were objections raised.

A memorandum was today submitted to PM Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi at Putra Jaya and it was accepted by his Political Secretary, Dato' Wan Farid Wan Hisham. Among those involved in submitting the memorandum were Dr Dzulkifli Ahmad, Sivarasa Rasiah and Liu Chin Tong.
