KUALA LUMPUR, June 10 — Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz has suggested that the Federal Constitution should be amended to ensure a period of five years between general elections, thereby creating a fixed term for Parliament., Malaysia’s ambassador to the United States said this would put a stop to any attempts to topple the government as had happened in the past.

“To guarantee a five-year term for any administration, I suggest that the Federal Constitution should be amended to state that once a general election is over, Parliament sits for five years, whereby five years means five years. “I figure that if we manage to amend the Federal Constitution, it will give the perception and optics to the people that when a government is formed it really is for five years,” he said.
