Introduction The written constitution in Malaysia is called the Federal Constitution. It is the supreme law of the Federation and any law passed after Merdeka day which is inconsistent with this constitution shall, to the extent of the inconsistency be void. The constitution lays down the powers of the Federal and State governments. It also enshrines the basic or the fundamental rights of the individual. These rights written into the constitution can only be changed by a two-thirds majority of the total number of members of the legislature.
