THOUGH 66 years old, our nation has not yet developed a shared constitutional culture. The Constitution has not yet become the chart and compass and the sail and anchor of our nation’s legal endeavours.
The reasons for this disappointing state of affairs are many. First, there is a serious lack of constitutional literacy within society, the public services and Parliament Neither at the secondary nor tertiary level of education is there any imparting of knowledge of the Federal Constitution’s principles, provisions and purposes. The only exceptions are the few law faculties that conduct courses in Malaysian laws.
