Article 24. The point about Wan Saiful Wan Jan's political involvement while residing in the UK for 16 years (read my posting h e r e) has drawn some interest on my Twitter timeline @xrockybrux since this morning.
What is Article 24(3A) or Article (2) of the Malaysian Constitution? Read LoyarBurok's Malaysians who voted in UK: Beware!
Now, I have the greatest respect for Tunku Abidin, but unfortunately like many Malaysians he seems not to have realised that whilst the UK lawfully allows us to vote there, Malaysia is rather more restrained in how it allows its citizens to exercise their individual freedoms.
For those Malaysian citizens who did vote in the recent elections, beware: the Home Minister now has the power to deprive you of your Malaysian citizenship.
Article 24(2) of the Federal Constitution says this:
(2) If the Federal Government is satisfied that any citizen has voluntarily claimed and exercised in any country outside the Federation any rights available to him under the law of that country, being rights accorded exclusively to its citizens, the Federal Government may by order deprive that person of his citizenship.
Read the whole article h e r e.
So, did Tunku Abidin's partner in IDEAS vote in the UK election?
