PARLIAMENT The National Security Council Bill 2015 (NSC Bill) was passed in Dewan Negara with a voice vote tonight, without any amendments.

This was despite numerous concerns raised by BN lawmakers that certain provisions may be unconstitutional, and after DAP senator Chandra Mohan filed a motion for a special committee to look at improving the bill.

The government however has promised it will improve the shortcomings in the controversial bill, if there is any.
