If a Bill is not in line with our Perlembagaan, should it become Law?

The controversial NSC Bill will be debated by the Senate soon,

If you want to read the Bill in pdf form go here.

My concerns are as follows:

1. Haven't we enough laws to deal with terrorist organisations like ISIS etc? POTA, SOSMA and our battery of Penal Codes? And we have our deadly efficient PDRM Special Branch and Military Intelligence to ensure things do not get messy in our blessed country don't we?

2. Article 41 of our Perlembagaan clearly stated that the 'The Yang di-Pertuan Agong shall be the Supreme Commander of the armed forces of the Federation'.

3. The NSC Bill give power to the Prime Minister directly over Armed Forces. The PM is not the Yang DiPertuan Agung he is a politician, put into office through a democratic process called the General Elections.

I hope the NSC Bill in its current form shall not become Law as it is quite obviously not in line with our Perlembagaan.

Daulat Tuanku.
