PUTRAJAYA, March 23 ― The Registrar of Societies (RoS) today confirmed that the registration of Pakatan Harapan could still not be processed.
RoS director-general Surayati Ibrahim said this was because Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM), one of the component parties in the opposition coalition, has yet to respond and provide all the information and documents required in the notice RoS issued to PPBM under Section 14 (2) of the Societies Act 1966.
“With this, the Registrar of Societies (ROS) can confirm that the registration of Pakatan Harapan cannot be processed,” she said in a statement here today.

PASIR MAS, March 23 — Datuk Ibrahim Ali went straight into “election mode” today in his hometown in Kelantan, after revealing yesterday that he will again vie for a Parliament seat here.
This morning, the president of Perkasa held a meeting with his trusted followers and supporters at the headquarters of the Malay rights group’s Pasir Mas and Rantau Panjang headquarters — which he dubbed “Headquarters of the People’s Struggle”.
“This morning was the operations meeting for the campaigning. Our focus will be to appeal to outstation, young and women voters. We also discussed the war of nerves,” Ibrahim told Malay Mail here.
Ibrahim also announced that he would launch his campaign team for Pasir Mas and Rantau Panjang next Friday — with an expected manpower of 3,000 people.
He said yesterday he had not decided if he will run in Pasir Mas or Rantau Panjang.
This afternoon, at the same venue, Ibrahim is due to present 308 top scorers in the SPM and STPM examinations with cash rewards.
Over in Pasir Mas, several banners announcing the award ceremony on display along the road, complete with a photo of Ibrahim in his ceremonial uniform.
At an intersection in Tendong, a state seat under Pasir Mas, yellow flags were fixed to lamp posts — emblazoned with a black vector illustration of a fiery Ibrahim hoisting a hand in the air with the words “Islam Dijulang; Bangsa Diperjuang”, Malay for “Islam exalted, nation defended”.
Nearby, a white banner was hung with hasty scrawls in red: “Penduduk Tendong perlukan Tok Him di Parlimen”, Malay for “Tendong folks need Tok Him in the Parliament”, referring to Ibrahim’s moniker among locals here.
The former Pasir Mas MP has been active in politics since the 1980s, but has not been a part of any political party in the last decade.
He was demolished as an independent candidate in the 13th general election by PAS’ Nik Abduh Nik Aziz, who won by over 8,000 votes in a two-way fight. [...]

LABIS, March 23 ― Chu Teck Euan, 60, pours hot water into three cups filled with coffee, sugar and milk, stirs them, and places them on a tray that a waitress takes to serve customers.
There are around 10 old marble topped tables in Peng Heong Coffee Shop, including three outside the pavement of a long shophouse along Jalan Ibrahim in Pekan Lama Labis.
The restaurant has been existence at the same spot for already four generations and Chu, who is popularly known as Steven, is the fourth generation to run the business.
What is interesting is that Peng Heong Coffee Shop, for the past four generations, is a meeting place of all races from the working class in town from morning till 5pm.
“I called my restaurant as 1Malaysia because of the varied customers who come and we know each other closely...sort of became personal friends.
“Here they talk almost about everything and thus far there has been no quarrels between them,” he said in fairly eloquent English.
Asked about Datuk Chua Tee Yong's chances of retaining the Labis parliament seat in the coming general election, Chu said he would wait and see who would be fielded by the Opposition.
“i think and what I heard my customers talked about is Chua is good, but still we have to see who is to contest against him,” he explained further.
Chua is defending the seat that he won in the last general election by a majority of 353 votes, a sharp drop from 2008 general election where his majority was 4,094 votes.
His decline in majority was attributed to the 2013 so-called “Chinese tsunami”. Whether such sentiments still exist this time around is a big question as MCA tries to recover itself.
The DAP, a Chinese-based party dominant in the opposition pact of Pakatan Harapan (PH), has begun a full scale assault in Johor, aiming to chip off all Chinese support for Johor Barisan Nasional (BN) while its partners ― Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah) and yet-to-be approved Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Pr [...]
