PETALING JAYA: DAP’s Bukit Gelugor MP Ramkarpal Singh today again called for party hopping to be outlawed.

This follows the latest series of party hopping by Pakatan Harapan representatives.

Ramkarpal said party hopping was “an anathema to any democracy as it can destabilise any government”, such as Perikatan Nasional.

“Regardless of whether they switched within PH or moved to PN, it makes no difference.

“An amusing argument was raised when justifying party hopping in this instance — that government funds are needed to serve the constituency and such funds are not available if one is in the opposition.”

Ramkarpal said this argument was “laughable”.
