Bill to penalise party-hopping in line with PM's Malaysian Family vision, says Azalina


KUALA LUMPUR: The proposed Bill to penalise MPs who party-hop is in line with the spirit of the Malaysian Family concept mooted by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, says former deputy Dewan Rakyat speaker Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said.

At a meeting with Ismail Sabri at Parliament on Monday (Sept 20), she declared her support on anti-party-hopping initiatives and other Parliamentary reforms.

"I'm confident that the Sacking of Members of Parliament Bill 2021, which I proposed is in line with the spirit of the Prime Minister's Malaysian Family concept," she told the media later.

On behalf of the Pengerang Umno division, Azalina also congratulated Ismail Sabri on his appointment as the country's ninth prime minister.

Azalina had recently urged Putrajaya to fast-track and include her proposed recall election Bill as part of the proposed anti-hopping law.

Azalina had submitted a notice to table a Private Members' Bill titled Sacking of Members of Parliament Bill 2021 on Sept 3.

The government had agreed under the memorandum of understanding (MOU) it signed with the Opposition on Sept 13 to include anti-hopping as part of reforms, with the proposed laws to be tabled at the first meeting of Parliament next year.
