Institutional reforms for Saving Malaysia
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
I am making a call to fellow Malaysians to sign this petition for Saving Malaysia with urgent institutional reforms.
For Lim Kit Siang and Harapan to fulfill their save Malaysia pledges, we need the following institutional reforms urgently.
1) Royal Consent for enactment of legislation
To prevent Malaysia from becoming a dictatorship,we need royal consent for enactment of laws. We need to reinstall the power for His Majesty the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to approve the laws passed by Parliament. We need our Parliament, the Judiciary and the Monarchy to keep the executive Branch in check.
2) Anti Corruption reform
The MACC should not fall under the purview of the Prime Minister's department. It should fall under the purview of the Conference of Rulers.
We need a separate and independent office for the Public Prosecutor instead of the Attorney General. The Public Prosecutor should be vested with the power to prosecute and answerable to the Parliament. The Public Prosecutor should be make to serve written notice to Parliament on its decision not to initiate any prosecution recommended by MACC.
The Public Prosecutor should be appointed by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong under the consultation of the Conference of Rulers.
3) Appointment of Attorney General
We need to make urgent amendment to Article 145 of the Federal Constitution regarding the appointment of the Attorney General.
We need to take away the power of appointment from the Prime Minister.
The amendment should be as follows:
The Yang di-Pertuan Agong shall, on the advice of the Conference of Rulers, appoint a person who is qualified to be a judge of the Federal Court to be the Attorney General for the Federation.
We need to empower the Conference of Rulers with new responsibilities to ensure the independent of judiciary.
4) The Police Force Commission reform
We need urgent review on the the Police Act 1967 regarding the power of Police Force Commission on the appointment of IGP and other senior Police posts.
We need an amendment to ensure that the Police Force Commission’s Chair is the Conference of Rulers not the Home Ministry.
We need to empower the Conference of Rulers with more responsibilities to ensure the integrity of our police force.
5) The Judiciary Appointment Commission reform
We need an urgent amendment to the Judiciary Appointment Commission Act to take away the power of appointment from the Prime Minister.
Under the proposed amendment, the commission should select candidates for Conference of Rulers, instead of the Prime Minister, to consider and recommend to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.
6) Election Commission and Redelineation reform
The election commission should not fall under the purview of the Prime Minister Department. The election commission should fall under the purview of the Conference of Rulers.
We need to review Article 40 of the Constitution of Malaysia to allow the King to act on the consultation with the Conference of Rulers instead of the Prime Minister.
We should ensure that the spirit of Schedule 13 of Malaysia’s Constitution is uphold to prevent malapportionment and gerrymandering of electoral boundaries.
All redelineation proposals cover both federal and state should be submitted to the Conference of Rulers instead of the Prime Minister. The Attorney General should ensure that the redelineation not contravene with Schedule 13 of Malaysia’s Constitution before submitting to Parliament for approval.
We need to empower the Conference of Rulers with more responsibilities to ensure that our elections fulfil the fundamental principle of equality and equal representation .
7)Power of Parliament Speaker
The power of Parliament Speaker should be limited so that the speaker cannot suspend a member of Parliament for more than 3 days.
The speaker should not imposing limits on the posing of supplementary questions during Question Time.
The speaker should be have the power to restrict the tabling of questions during Question Time.
This should be the first step for us to move forward after the 14th General Election.
