MAHKAMAH TELAH MENGARAHKAN MENTERI DALAM NEGERI UNTUK MENDAFTARKAN MUDA DALAM MASA 15 HARI DAN MEMBAYAR KOS GUAMAN SEBANYAK 10 RIBU RINGGIT.
Previously, Home Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin rejected the party’s application to be registered as a political party and gave no reason for the decision. After that, Muda had taken legal action to challenge the rejection.
Muda founder Syed Saddiq Syed Syed Abdul Rahman told reporters as saying that the decision is also a victory for the country’s democratic system.
He said this is because Muda now has a place to voice opinions, criticisms and suggestions to develop Malaysia.
Today is an emotional day because this year has been full of obstacles and challenges. But with the court’s decision today, we build on the commitment and passion to fight for our beloved country after a year and a half of challenges and intimidation (in registering Muda).Muda founder Syed Saddiq Syed Syed Abdul Rahman on the High Court’s decision
He said today’s decision will not divide the nation, but develop the country, strengthen civil service, elevate the voices of young people and build the country into a family that represents all Malaysians.
Our journey begins today and we will prove to the people that we are there to work for them.Muda founder Syed Saddiq Syed Syed Abdul Rahman on the High Court’s decision
