KOTA KINABALU: International Trade and Industry Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin supports the proposal for an “anti-hopping” law to ensure political stability in the country.
“It needs to be looked into again. It is not that we fear more will leave Barisan Nasional, but what is important is the question of principle,” he told reporters after attending a Chinese New Year open house at the residence of his deputy and Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) president Datuk V.K. Liew.
Muhyiddin, who is also Umno vice-president, said there was a need to look at it seriously taking into consideration the current political scenario.
“Personally, I do agree that we need to look again at the earlier provisions in the Federal Constitution.
“But, of course, it’s entirely up to Barisan leaders to see the rationale in amending the Constitution (to enable the enaction of the proposed anti-hopping law) and find out what the people think about it,” he said.
He was asked to comment on Parti Bersatu Sabah’s Datuk Seri Joseph Pairin Kitingan’s remarks Thursday that the time was ripe to amend the Federal Constitution to allow the enaction of such a law. -- Bernama
