Bersih, in respecting the King's wishes, has agreed to not do a street rally. Instead, it has applied to use Stadium Merdeka.

But in the meantime, the crackdown on Bersih and the detention of its supporters continues. What's up with that???

Bersih wants supporters freed, RCI on election practices

Bersih will demand that Datuk Seri Najib Razak establish a royal commission into election practices and free its arrested supporters, its chief Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan said today.

She also added that Bersih is “horrified” that police are continuing with arrests and charges despite Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin’s call for negotiations between the movement and the government.

“It is only proper that they stand down and the topmost priority is to release all those arrested,” Ambiga told a press conference today.

The former Bar Council president also said that the Yang di-Pertuan Agong “heard us out” on the issues in yesterday’s audience.

“In the spirit of reconciliation, we accepted the offer of a stadium in good faith,” Ambiga (picture) said,
