To re-enact the Parliamentary Service Act 1963

Under revised 11MP, Parliamentary Services Act set to return in push for better governance

Putrajaya is seeking reinstate the Parliamentary Services Act 1963 (PSA) as part of a slew of plans being proposed to improve governance, as the issue becomes the focus of a Malaysia Plan for the first time. The mid-term review of the 11th Malaysia Plan (11MP) states that the current institutional framework is “inadequate” to ensure checks and balances between the executive, legislative and judiciary, and therefore a separation of power is needed to prevent concentration of power in a particular branch of government.
