The ‘Tunaikan janji, Pakatan Rakyat. Kami menuntut penerbitan Utusan Rakyat’ petition was launched on 2nd June, to urge one or more of the Pakatan Rakyat state governments to take advantage of section 25(1), Printing Press & Publications Act, 1984 and publish an independent state government newspaper.
As at the time of writing up this post, 413 had signed the petition in support of the same.
Nobody else wants to try and get a free and fair newspaper?
I’m due to meet up with an Exco member of one of the Pakatan state governments to explore the possibility of such a newspaper.
It would help if my statement that ‘the rakyat want such an independent newspaper’ to this Exco member appears to be credibly backed with a decent number of signatories to this petition.
Help me out, please.
