The Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has already rejected PKR’s application to use the venue last week. They said that the Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM) would be using Padang Merbok to prepare for a charity run on Sunday.
DBKL is also concerned about the landscape surrounding Padang Merbok and wants to avoid traffic congestion.
Both Pakatan leaders and DBKL met last Friday but failed to come to an agreement, with PKR saying they would consult the NGOs involved before making the final decision.
