Harapan to discuss Hadi's hudud bill on Monday

Pakatan Harapan will be meeting to discuss PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang's Private Member's Bill on Monday, the first day of this coming parliamentary session.
PKR deputy president Azmin Ali said the pact will seek a common stand on the bill, which critics point out will lead to the implementation of hudud.
"However, (PKR) has deliberated on this issue two weeks ago," Azmin added, saying a statement would be issued by the party soon.
The Selangor menteri besar was met by reporters after the Bersih 5 ceramah in Kuala Selangor last night.
Hadi's bill seeks to amend the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act, allowing for higher levels of punishment than is presently stipulated.
The amended would remove the final obstacle to the implementation of hudud law in Kelantan, which was unanimously passed at state level last year by a majority of PAS and Umno assemblypersons and a single PKR representative.
PKR had previously declined to support the bill, while DAP is overtly against it.
BN's non-Muslim component parties such as MCA, Gerakan, MIC as well as the Borneo parties are also opposed to the bill, but it is unknown if BN as a whole has reached a consensus in the matter ahead of this week's sitting.

Nearly 100 complaints to EC
On another matter, Azmin said besides the Selangor government, all 12 local governments in the state have also objected to the Election Commission's (EC) redelineation proposal.
He said overall, the state has filed almost 100 complaints.
"I'm meeting with the lawyers again next week to consider other options beside this protest that we have submitted," he added.
The redelineation exercise has been panned for alleged gerrymandering and dividing voters along racial lines, and for its blatant malapportionment. - Mkini
