Bernama earlier reported that there were 62 candidates vying for the 20 seats at its Special Congress 2017 today.

The re-elections for the seats had been ordered by the Registrar of Societies on July 17.

It was mandated by ROS after it rejected the outcome of the original elections on Dec 12, 2012 and Sept 29, 2013 due to irregularities.

DAP appointed independent audit firm Grant Thornton based in the United States to manage today’s re-elections.
