  • The RAKYAT is also asking for any political party that can mooted a motion to stop elected Parliamentarians from party hopping. This frogging is a nuisance not to mention being disloyal and a laughing matter by other nations. What is the used of having a general elections and claimed the people has spoken only to be taken away by such unethical practice which is not condoned by the majority and civilized societies. Please for heaven sake put a stop to such a dirty act once and for all. Draft out and outline properly that if an elected representative wants to quit his/her party of which he/she won there must be a by-election held not just changing hat. The said candidate who wants to quit must not be allowed to contest even as an independent. Politicians are allowed to changed party before the election but not after he/she has won. If he/she insists of doing so to change for whatever reasons after the by election held which he/she cannot participate he/she needs to observed a reasonable cooling off period before he can hop to another party. It is high time for political parties to raise and push this through.
