Penampang: United Pasokmomogun Kadazandusun Murut Organisation President Tan Sri Bernard Dompok has called for a review of the Federal Constitution to allow people's representatives who vacate their seats to contest again.
The proposed anti-hopping law and the present provision in the Federal Constitution which bars state assemblymen and members of Parliament who have resigned to stand in an election for another seat in the same House had to be reconciled, he said.
If not, the anti-hopping law would bring injustice to the representatives who really fought for the people, said Dompok who is Minister in the Prime Minister's Department.
"Now, elected representatives who vacate their seats have no opportunities to test their influence or obtain feedback from the people.
"In this respect, it is good if the voters were to determine the position of the representatives," he told reporters after launching his party's Natural Disaster Fund here today.
Many quarters have called for the enactment of anti-hopping laws after Bota Assemblyman Datuk Nasaruddin Hashim in Perak quit Barisan Nasional and crossed over to Parti Keadilan Rakyat.
