Why AG Explanation Needed To Ammend Constitution For MA63

COMMENT: Member of Parliament Kota Kinabalu, Chan Foong Hin.

Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar has invited backbenchers from both sides of the political divide to attend the briefing of the proposed constitutional amendment bill. It means both sides are clear with the proposal.

Special council on MA63 has conducted a meeting 3 days ago, and according to Dr Maximus Ongkili, Minister of Sabah and Sarawak Affairs in PM department, the council has agreed with the proposed constitutional amendment presented by Wan Junaidi, the Law Minister.

Chief Ministers of Sabah and Sarawak were also present during the council’s meeting, which was chaired by Prime Minister, Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

My question now: who are the ministers in the cabinet that are daring enough to “challenge” the decision by MA63 special council which comprises of not just the PM, and both the Chief Ministers of Sabah and Sarawak?.

Why do we even need the AG to further explain the bill which is as clear as daylight with no ambiguity?

The Sarawak State Elections are coming up and yet certain ministers within the cabinet still see it fit to throw a spanner at the good work of Wan Junaidi. Is there an internal sabotage by an enemy within?

Whilst there is collective ministerial responsibility, it seems right now that the entire cabinet is being held ransom by a minority of ministers. I worry for the stability of the current federal government.
