Perkasa to have own publication - Suara Perkasa

Malay NGO Perkasa is soon to have a voice of its own when its fortnightly newspaper Suara Perkasa (Voice of Perkasa) makes the rounds into the hands of its members.

The organisation today received an letter of approval from the Home Ministry for its printing permit.

However a formal announcement and launch will only be organised when Suara Perkasa is in print,NONE said Perkasa president and Pasir Mas parliamentarian Ibrahim Ali (right) who appeared excited over the prospect of the NGO's own paper.

In an exclusive interview with Malaysiakini, Ibrahim also revealed that Perkasa now has upwards of 5000 fully registered members while another 50,000 new applications are being processed, with more joining the NGO at a rate of 200 a day.

If all goes according to plan, each will soon have a Suara Perkasa in their hands.

Ibrahim, who also criticised alternative media including Malaysiakini for 'selective facts' and 'touching on sensitive issues' in the same interview, will soon have his own avenue to express his views unfettered from any alleged 'interference', at least to Perkasa members.

"We might expand further," he said, adding that if conditions allowed they might even print on a daily basis instead of just fortnightly, hinting perhaps at a bigger audience and role for Suara Perkasa.
