Gerakan Mansuh Akta Hasutan
Pakatan Rakyat MPs greeted the Mansuh Akta Hasutan NGOs in Parliament today.
YB Khalid Samad attempted to introduce a petition in Dewan Rakyat but the petition was shot down by the Speaker.
A bit of drama ensued earlier when the Speaker refused to allow the representatives of NGOs to make the walk up the hill to Parliament. YB Gooi and I joined the NGOs at the gate to help them sign in.
After the petition was rejected, several MPs called a press conference to push the matter. Members of the NGOs also called a press conference immediately after that.
We are of the view that Najib must honour his promise of abolishing the Sedition Act. He must do so during this UMNO AGM.
