SUPP welcomes parliamentary, administrative reforms

Date:

KUCHING: The Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) welcomes the announcement on parliamentary and administrative reforms by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

SUPP secretary general Datuk Sebastian Ting Chiew Yew in a statement yesterday, urged all members of Parliament (MPs) to fully support the proposed reforms, in the best interest of the country.

“The parliamentary and administrative reforms include the anti-party hopping law, the implementation of Undi18 and constitutional amendment to limit the prime minister’s tenure to ten years.

“Apart from that, we support the decision where children born abroad are entitled to Malaysian citizenship as long as either parent is a Malaysian and at the same time restoring the right of mothers,” said Ting.

“SUPP also supports the proposal to limit the prime minister’s tenure to 10 years as it will prevent or minimise political leaders from staying in office for too long and start to corrupt and abuse power and the system.

“This reform will also help to keep our country’s democracy alive. It will also motivate young leaders with innovative ideas coupled with knowledge of Artificial Intelligence, to lead the nation,” added Ting.

The Piasau assemblyman also said he supported the proposed Anti-Party Hopping Bill, saying that party hopping was a total disrespect and disregard to the wishes of the people who voted for the representative.

“This law will put an end to party hopping behaviour and will certainly help to keep our country’s democracy alive.

“It will further prevent or minimise political corruption by stopping elected representatives from hopping party to party for their own interests and cause political turmoil and uneasiness like the recent ones.

“It is more than a fair statement to say that most Malaysians are tired, fed up and angry with the culture of party hopping,” he said.
