MCA TO BLOCK HADI’S PRI­VATE MEM­BER’S BILL

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

KUALA LUMPUR: MCA will en­sure PAS pres­i­dent Datuk Seri Ab­dul Hadi Awang’s con­tro­ver­sial Pri­vate Mem­ber’s Bill to amend Act 355 will not be de­bated in the next Par­lia­ment sit­ting. MCA pres­i­dent Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said the party strongly op­posed the Bill seek­ing to aug­ment ju­ris­dic­tion of syariah courts, as it was against the Fed­eral Con­sti­tu­tion. The Par­lia­ment Or­der Pa­per has in­cluded Ab­dul Hadi’s Bill as the fourth item to be de­bated at the sit­ting. “BN has made a con­sen­sus de­ci­sion that gov­ern­ment Bills will su­percede Pri­vate Mem­ber’s Bills,” Liow said. He also slammed DAP for blam­ing MCA for “al­low­ing” the Bill to be tabled.
