I don’t think HRP should bother with the protest at PKR HQ. Just proceed with their campaign and nominations. No one can stop HRP from standing in elections (of course, there’s small problem of HRP not allowed to be registered as a party yet, so have to stand as independents or some other methods). If you are good, people will come and look for you, need not worry. Same goes with HRP. If they are able to build a good support from the people at those constituencies, and deemed as threat to BN/PR, then those coalition will come knocking on HRP door.

 

THE Human Rights Party (HRP) is demanding that Pakatan Rakyat give it seven parliamentary and 16 state assembly seats in the coming polls.

The party’s protem secretary P. Uthayakumar threatened that at least 10,000 Indians would protest outside PKR headquarters on the first Sunday after Parliament has been dissolved if their request was denied.

He said HRP was eyeing four state seats in Selangor because one-third of the Indian population lived there.

“In the last general election, we gave Pakatan a chance but it has failed to address the problems faced by the Indian community.”
