PKR's forum on "marginalisation" jam-packed

Last night's public forum on the hot issue of "marginalisation" organised by Parti KeADILan Rakyat (PKR) in the Kuala Lumpur-Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall featuring the party's information chief Tian Chua and DAP's state assemblyman Teng Chang Khim was jam-packed with some 250 people with a portion of them having to sit outside the conference room from the beginning to the end.

Since its inauguration in April 1999 as a Muslim-majority multi-ethnic and multi-religious opposition party to extend the struggle for reformasi into the system and process of parliamentary democracy and constitutional monarchy, PKR has obviously overcome the mental obstacle of many Chinese and become an accepted and normal part of the Chinese community's political discourses.

It augurs well for national solidarity in the process of the country's democratisation amid civilisational tensions in today's world.

As I have said in an earlier entry, I must excuse myself from the subsequent fora to be held by PKR in Malacca (8 October), Johore (9 October), Negeri Sembilan (12 October) and Perak (13 October) because from 8 to 15 October, I will be in China's Guangzhou at the official invitation of the Sun Yat-Sen University as a Visiting Scholar.

For more details about these fora in other states, please contact Ms. Ginie Lim via 03-40440063.
