Some unaware, others concerned over NSC Act
Although the National Security Council (NSC) Act 2016 will be coming to force next Monday, some members of the public are still uninformed about the law that will give emergency powers to the council headed by the prime minister.
"I don't know (about the act). Because I feel it has nothing to do with me," Kamal Afiq Mustapa Kamal, 28, told Malaysiakini in a street survey.
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.
