MELAKA: The Bill on anti-party hopping will be tabled at the Melaka State Assembly sitting slated at the end of this month, says Datuk Seri Ab Rauf Yusoh (pic).


The Chief Minister said the Bill aimed at preventing state assemblymen from party-hopping.

“This is in line with the law passed at the Dewan Rakyat and the decision made by the top leadership.

“So, Melaka will follow suit and the bill on anti-party hopping will be tabled at the next State Assembly sitting,” he said told reporters after checking out the implementation of the ‘No Right Turn’ initiative and the traffic flow at the Hang Jebat Stadium junction of the Sungai Udang-Paya Rumput- Ayer Keroh (SPA) Highway here on Tuesday (June 4).


Meanwhile, Ab Rauf, who is also Melaka Umno Liaison Committee chairman, said Melaka Umno was prepared to assist the Negri Sembilan election machinery to face the upcoming state polls, especially in bordering constituencies.

“I have yet to get the details on how many state constituencies are there in Negri Sembilan, but among the areas that we can help are in the bordering constituencies such as Rembau, Tampin, Gemenceh, Linggi, Port Dickson, Teluk Kemang and Seremban,” he said.- Bernama
