The Rocket Takes Off Again!

The Home Ministry has approved DAP’s application to renew the publishing permit for its organ The Rocket in English and Chinese.

National publicity secretary Tony Pua said today that the party received a letter from the ministry to the effect.

He said DAP will be making the mandatory RM50 payment immediately to ensure the permit is issued.

The Rocket was among three opposition tabloids whose permits were not renewed. The other two were PAS-owned Harakah and PKR’s Suara Keadilan.

However, Harakah has since returned to print, while Suara Keadilan is still in limbo.

PKR, however, has gone on to publish one-off issues under different names.
