It is widely speculated that those barred from contesting in the forthcoming UMNO General Election after receiving and fulfilling the required nominations, but due to the recent 'unfair' decision of the UMNO Disciplinary Board would lodge a complaint with the Registrar of Societies (ROS) of their unfair treatment received since every offence should be dealt with according to the UMNO Constitution and Societies Act.

It has been revealed that the UMNO Disciplinary Board had practised unfair double standards, although accused of infringing Party Rules but were allowed for reasons best known to them. These selective punishment is against known rules.

The Registrar of Societies has powers to conduct an investigation pending suspending the UMNO General Assembly or they can also dissolve the UMNO party if they find it is beyond remedy.

Its time that barred and unsatisfied UMNO leaders make a formal complaint so that the ROS can take the required action.

The UMNO Constitution does not allow members to take their grievances to Court but as the Societies Act gives every member the right to seek justice by raising the formal complaint for investigation and for their action.

Will the ROS act against these 'unfair and double standard' treatment?
