Look Back – Sedition Act U-Turn

Critics call it a policy flip-flop, while supporters say that the retention of the colonial-era Sedition Act is essential to maintain Malay political dominance. When the Prime Minister announced that his Administration would work towards the repeal of the Sedition Act, he was lauded by many quarters. His government created the bi-partisan National Unity Consultative Committee and tasked it with drafting laws and engaging various stakeholders. Now all that is in limbo. Foreign critics of Najib Razak’s policy u-turn include US Vice President Joseph Biden. But bowing to pressure from Perkasa as well as party elders, Najib now looks to strengthen the Sedition Act with amendments in early 2015.
