Media Conference Statement

(Dewan Rakyat, Wednesday): On behalf of the organizing committee, I wish to confirm that the "The Great Malaysian Debate: ISA - Yes or No" will be held as scheduled on Monday 26th July at 8.30 p.m. at the Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall in Kuala Lumpur. Registrations will start at 8 p.m. There were press reports yesterday quoting Datuk Seri Mohd Nazri that the debate will be held on 25th July and I wish to stress here that the date mentioned was not accurate.

The Dang Wangi OCPD Hadi Ho Abdullah has granted a police permit for the organizing of the debate through a letter dated 20th July to DAPSY Assistant National Secretary Kuan Perk Siong.

The Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall is able to accommodate 1,000 attendants. The organizing committee will distribute invitation cards to members of the public who are interested on a first come first serve basis. DAP and UMNO are equally given 400 invitation cards for their supporters and invitees. 200 places will be reserved for
representatives from the NGOs, political parties, academicians and the media.

Members of the public who wish to attend the debate can collect the invitation cards in the designated DAP offices in the Klang Valley starting on Friday, 23th July. Alternatively, they can call up the DAP Headquarters at 03-7957 8022 to register and pick up the cards at the venue. They can also register through email at [email protected]
