Mahathir’s advice that laws should not be easily amended sounds a bit rich coming from someone who did not hesitate to amend laws when he was in charge, observes Francis Loh.
As we go out to vote, all eyes will be on the Election Commission and how it handles polling day and deters phantom voters. In the original Merdeka Constitution, an
impartial Election Commission (SPR) was put into place. Since then,
various Constitutional amendments have transformed the SPR into a shell
of its original self.
