KUALA LUMPUR: The government is in for the long haul to make changes which will benefit the nation, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said today.
He said such changes included reviewing the Sedition Act and replace the Printing Presses and Publication Act with a new regulation.
Najib, however, stressed, reviewing existing laws including the Sedition Act or formulating new laws would not set aside three key principles namely upholding the monarchy institution, maintaining unity and the people's rights.
"It is very crucial in any evolution of new regulations to tackle behaviours or actions that can incite hatred or contempt towards the Yang di-Pertuan Agong or any rulers."
He pointed out it was also necessary to stop any attempt to create animosity among the races or people.
Najib added one must tackle any attempt to question the people's rights as provided under Article 151, 153 and 181 of the Federal Constitution.
