SOUND BITE (For the Lawyers)

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at Che Det on August 27, 2009 3:52 PM

1. I am trying to find out whether the Constitution and Constitutional Law came into being by an Act of Parliament.

2. If they are when were they passed - before the founding of Malaya and Malaysia or after?

3. Did the Parliament create the Constitution or did the Constitution create Parliament?

4. If the Constitution is not created by Parliament, then who created it? Is it the Malayan Constitutional Commission? How did it become law?

5. I have asked people trained in law and ordinary people. They give conflicting views. Many just do not know. All they know is that it is there, that is all.

6. Perhaps some lawyers can enlighten me on this - gratis of course.
