QUESTIONING MY POSITION IN KEADILAN
Two persons have questioned my position in KEADILAN. Initially I did not wish to respond to their wild allegations. Now I have decided to give a short clarification to ensure that they and the Umno-controlled media will not continue to distort the truth.
The decisions of Parti Rakyat Malaysia (PRM) and Parti Keadilan Nasional (PKN) to merge and form the Parti Keadilan Rakyat were passed with overwhelming majority by their respective Annual Congress and Annual General Meeting around 2002. The PRM Congress also decided to wind up the party. Following these decisions a transitional Keadilan Rakyat Leadership Council was formed with representatives from both parties.
The Registrar of Society (ROS) delayed the registration of the new Party. So, we decided to take the matter to court.  The Shah Alam High Court subsequently made t ruling in favour of the registration of the Party. On 3rd August 2003 Parti Keadilan Rakyat was formally launched.
But there was reluctance on the part of the ROS to recognize the decision of the PRM Congress. This allowed a small splinter group to continue with the party. Actually, a number of leaders of this splinter group had already joined the transitional leadership of Keadilan Rakyat. But they left when the opportunity was provided to them by the ROS.
That was why ten former leaders of the original PRM, including me, challenged in court the action of the ROS.   We did not recognize the new “PRM” because it contravened the PRM Congress decision. The court decided against us. The splinter group decided to continue. As a small splinter group it was never able to hold an annual “congress” with more than 50 persons attending. Recently its President left and returned to KEADILAN.
It is clear there was a decisive PRM Congress agreement with the merger. It should have been abided by every member. The transitional KEADILAN leadership council agreed to choose me as Deputy President. Two subsequent election Congress of KEADILAN (held three-yearly) confirmed my position.
I suggest that those questioning my position as member and Deputy President of KEADILAN write officially to the Party. Or better still, if they have any support at all, they can propose a resolution in the upcoming Congress of KEADILAN to suspend me, as one of them wish.
Dr Syed Husin Ali
Deputy President, KEADILAN

KENYATAAN MEDIA
UNTUK EDARAN SEGERA

Tarikh: 6 Februari 2010

MEMPERSOAL KEDUDUKAN SAYA DALAM KEADILAN
Dua orang telah mempersoal kedudukan saya dalam KEADILAN. Mula-mula saya tidak berhasrat menjawab tuduhan liar mereka. Kini saya merasa perlu memberi sedikit penjelasan supaya mereka dan media yang dikuasai Umno tidak terus berbohong.
Keputusan Parti Rakyat Malaysia (PRM) dan Parti Keadilan Nasional (PKN) untuk bercantum dan membentuk Parti Keaadilan Rakyat telah dibuat dengan majoriti besar lebih dua-pertiga dalam Kongres dan Mesyuarat Agung tahunan masing-masing sekitar tahun 2002. PRM juga bersetuju untuk menutup parti. Berikutannya, Pimpinan Peralihan Keadilan Rakyat dibentuk dengan wakil-wakil dari dua-dua parti menganggotainya.
Pihak Pendaftar Pertubuhan telah melengah-lengahkan pendaftaran Parti baru ini. Jadi kami mengambil keputusan membawa perkara ini ke Mahkamah. Akhirnya Mahkamah Tinggi Shah Alam membuat keputusan memihak kepada pendaftaran Parti. Pada 3hb Ogos Parti Keadilan Rakyat dilancarkan dengan rasminya.
Namun pihak ROS kelihatan liat hendak menerima keputusan majoriti lebih dua pertiga yang dibuat oleh Kongres PRM. Mereka membenarkan sekumpulan kecil serpihan untuk meneruskan PRM. Sebenarnya, beberapa orang pemimpin serpihan telah menyertai pimpinan peralihan Keadilan Rakyat. Mereka keluar apabila diberi peluang oleh ROS.
Itu sebabnya sepuluh orang bekas pemimpin PRM asal, termasuk saya, mencabar dalam mahkamah tindakan ROS itu. Kami tidak mengiktiraf “PRM” baru ini kerana ia bertentangan dengan keputusan Kongres PRM. Keputusan mahkamah tidak memihak kepda kami. Kumpulan serpihan kecil itu meneruskan parti. Namun mereka tidak pernah dapat menarik lebih dari 50 orang untuk menghadiri “kongres” tahunan mereka. Baru-baru ini Presiden mereka kembali ke pangkuan KEADILAN.
Jelas bahawa keputusan Kongres PRM menyetujui Percantuman kedua-dua Parti. Keputusan ini sepatutnya dipatuhi oleh semua anggota. Pimpinan peralihan KEADILAN bersetuju melantik saya sebagai Timbalan Presiden. Dua Kongres pemilihan KEADILAN (yang diadakan tiga tahun sekali) memperkukuhkan kedudukan saya.
Saya syorkan supaya mereka yang mempersoal kedudukan saya sebagai anggota dan Timbalan Presiden KEADILAN menulis secara rasmi kepada Parti. Lebih baik lagi, jika mempunyai apa-apa sokongan, mereka boleh mengemukakan resolusi dalam Kongres Keadilan  akan dating agar menggantung keanggotaan saya, seperti salah seorang dari mereka mahu.
Dr Syed Husin Ali
Timbalan Presiden, KEADILAN
