Dr M: Amend constitution to strip Ambiga's citizenship
The government needs to amend the constitution if it wants to strip citizenship of lawyers such as Bersih co-chairperson S Ambiga, who go against the government.
"To strip a person's citizenship, you need to amend the constitution. And to amend the constitution you need two-thirds majority in Parliament," said former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad today.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
