PUTRAJAYA, Jan 28 — There is a proposal to reestablish a dedicated law ministry with the Legal Affairs Division (BHEUU) as its core organisation to ensure matters related to law amendments are implemented more efficiently. Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Parliament and Law) Datuk Seri Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar said a draft proposal is ready but further study on the pros and cons is needed. The findings from a survey of more than 150 firms last September underscore the precarious situation US companies face amid a global shortage of the crucial computer chips, which has already forced some businesses to slash production and contributed to an ongoing spike in inflation. In 1957, there was a Ministry of Law under the Ministry of Home Affairs before it became the Ministry of Justice in 1959. "This includes the government’s transformation initiatives where amendments to laws are needed, and the task at hand is enormous," he said after meeting staff of the Legal Affairs Division on Friday (Jan 28). It was once again called the Ministry of Law in 1992 before it was dissolved on May 8, 1995, and later known as BHEUU placed under the Prime Minister’s Department (JPM). Both chambers are narrowly controlled by his Democratic Party. Speaking to the media after the BHEUU monthly gathering, here, today, Wan Junaidi said the plan to reestablish the Ministry of Law was justified as there are now almost 20 agencies under BHEUU, apart from having to shoulder the government’s aspirations and transformation.

“The government has several matters to do in Parliament and at the same time if we look at the transformation we are implementing, the government cannot run away from amendments to Bills, regulations and many others,” he said. “The semiconductor supply chain remains fragile, and it is essential that Congress pass chips funding as soon as possible,” Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo said in a statement. "But with the government's aspiration for transformation and the people's demands that need to be looked into today, it is most timely for a dedicated law ministry to be set up to handle these matters," he said. Wan Junaidi will present the proposal to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob and Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Mohd Zuki Ali to seek agreement in principle before bringing the proposal to the Cabinet. When asked to comment on Malaysia’s position in the Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) 2021, Wan Junaidi said the country’s position in the index could be improved after legal action is taken against those involved (in corruption).” The survey found chip demand is currently 20 per cent higher than its level in 2019 and companies expect more orders than supply for another six months. He said the country’s position in the CPI was related to extensive corruption. “If there are many cases of corruption in a country, but no one raises the matter, it will not be known and perception will be different.” The automobile and medical device industries are the sectors most affected by the shortage, the report found.

But in our country, people say there is corruption even for non-corrupt things, this increases the perception. However, I’m not saying corruption does not exist,” he said. The inflation spike has become a political liability for Biden, while also spurring the US Federal Reserve to signal it is ready to raise interests rates from zero as soon as March and hike them up to two more times this year to quell prices. He also said taking legal action against those involved in corruption could also increase the perception that corrupt activities were “rampant”. “But Insya-Allah, if the perception increases due to the actions of the MACC and police, I am quite confident that at some point it (Malaysia’s position in the CPI) will improve,” he said.
