Karpal wants support for anti-party hopping law


(NST) – DAP national chairman Karpal Singh said he wants the Barisan Nasional ruling government to support a national anti party hopping law which he will propose in parliament in the coming week.

Karpal said he will be in parliament next week to submit a proposal to amend Article 10(1) of the constitution to make party hopping illegal.

‘BN must realise that it is in the public interest that party hopping should be outlawed,’ he said at a press conference in Air Itam here today.
