Ambiga : Bersih March - No street march, rally will be held in stadium

KUALA LUMPUR: Bersih 2.0 chief Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan emerged after an audience with the King Tuesday and said the planned rally on Saturday would be held in a stadium.

There would be no street march, she told reporters.

She said Bersih would hold discussions with the Government about the venue.

On her audience with the King, she said: "We had a most wonderful meeting and are most grateful to the King."

She was accompanied by Bersih steering committee member Zaid Kamaruddin and national laureate Datuk A Samad Said.

The leaders had made a request Monday for an audience with Yang Di Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin  after he made a statement Sunday advising restraint and compromise as street demonstrations would do more harm than good.  Source : The Star
