“The Constitutional amendments tabled today will be referred to a special Parliament Select Committee which is bipartisan, involves all parties, and is tasked with scrutinising, refining and proposing a draft of the Constitutional Amendment and the anti-party hopping Bill to the Cabinet within one month and;

“Constitutional amendments and the anti-party hopping Bill agreed by both parties will be tabled and approved in a special session of Parliament before the end of May 2022,” the Opposition coalition said in a statement today. 

The Presidential Council also reiterated its stand that the anti-party hopping Bill is one key term of the Memorandum of Understanding on Transformation and Political Stability (MoU).

“PH is committed to the process of ensuring the Constitutional Amendment and the anti-party hopping Bill is successfully tabled and approved in Parliament, in order to restore the confidence of the people to the electoral process and in turn guarantee the future of democracy in Malaysia,” PH leaders said.
