Plan to limit PM’s term to 10 years now under study

A plan to limit the term of the prime minister to no more than 10 years is now being studied by the attorney-general’s chambers (AGC) and the legal affairs division (BHEUU) under the Prime Minister’s Department.

Law minister Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar said the study would take into consideration the views of the people, government agencies, civil society organisations and non-governmental organisations.

“A questionnaire has been uploaded onto the BHEUU portal and views on the study can be submitted from Nov 23 until tomorrow (Dec 8).

“A technical committee has also been set up under the CSA (confidence-and-supply agreement) steering committee to study the proposal based on holistic engagement sessions,” he said in an interview on the 100-day Aspirasi Keluarga Malaysia programme via Buletin Bernama today.

He said amendments on the matter would be implemented in July 2022 after the study is completed.

Wan Junaidi said the proposal to limit the tenure of the prime minister would be implemented so that there is no longer a situation where if the prime minister wins the election, he will continue to hold the post.

Meanwhile, Wan Junaidi said Parliament and the AGC are looking at formulating or amending the Parliamentary Services Bill 2022 and drafting the Parliament (Privileges and Powers) (Amendment) 2022 Bill. These are expected to be tabled during Parliament’s first meeting in March 2022.

“With the reformation, the formulation or amendment of the Acts, Parliament’s independence will be assured and the meetings in the House will be more orderly,” he said.

Apart from that, Wan Junaidi said the Cabinet on Sept 17 had decided that the government should mobilise the enactment of an anti-party hopping law and a questionnaire was developed to be answered by MPs and the public from Nov 23 to today.

“To date, 7,000 civil servants have answered the questionnaire. The matter was among the government’s efforts to obtain the views of all parties in setting the policy,” he said. FMT
