Anti-Hop Law for political stability

Sabah Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Seri Joseph Pairin Kitingan said the Anti-Hop Law should be enacted in the Federal Constitution to ensure greater political stability in the country. He said the country would have much to lose out politically and economically without political stability.
Speaking at Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) 24th anniversary in Kota Kinabalu on March 6, 2009, Pairin who is the party's president said," We pray and hope that in the future we will be able to enjoy political stability through the inclusion of the Anti-Hop Law in our country's law."
Pairin as Chief Minister during the PBS State Government (1985-1994) enacted the Anti-Hop Law but it was later declared null and void by the Federal Court. The Court declared that law was ultra vires the Federal Constitution on grounds that it restrained one's freedom of association.

If this hand been decided there would not be anyway anti hop law can be enacted
The only way out is to have it in the constitution that says an elected government will remain to rule the country/state unless the Assembly/Parliament it is dissolved by itself.
