BERSIH discussed setting up of RCI with His Majesty The King

KUALA LUMPUR: Bersih 2.0 wants to hold its July 9 rally at the iconic Stadium Merdeka here, where the nation’s idependence was proclaimed more than five decades ago.

Speaking at a press conference here, the movement’s chairperson Ambiga Sreenevasan said: “We have decided it would be in Stadium Merdeka from 2pm-4pm.”

“A delegation of not more than 10 members of the Bersih 2.0 steering committee would then go to Istana Negara to hand over a memorandum,” she added.

Bersih 2.0 has also called for the release of all those detained in connection with the rally, and demanded that a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) be set up to look into electoral reforms. "The RCI was raised during our meeting with the King (yesterday),” said Ambiga.
