Cruel Citizenship Amendments: Where Are We, What Next?

For months, the Malaysian Citizenship Rights Alliance (MCRA), constitutional experts and more have been pushing back against many of the proposed amendments by the Home Ministry due to its regressive and cruel nature that will only perpetuate statelessness. Last week, the Constitution (Amendment) Bill 2024 which concerns stateless people, was tabled in Parliament. Interestingly, the Bill wasn’t voted on in Parliament due to “lack of time.” 

So, what is the content of the Bill that eventually hit parliament floors? What does it mean that the bill wasn’t voted on? What changes do we need to see before Parliament sits again in June?
