Ishak, Nor Masitah and Mohd Nasir, Nur Anida and Jamaludin, Saluminor and Suliman, Siti Sarah Nadiah (2009) Separation of powers: the aftermath of PP v Kok Wah Kuan / Nor Masitah Ishak ... [et al.]. [Student Project] (Unpublished)


The topic of our research is Separation of Powers: The Aftermath of PP v. Kok Wah Kuan. The topic reviews the position of separation of powers, prior and after the
decision of in PP v Kok Wah Kuan. It has always been the practice of the judiciary to uphold the spirit which the doctrine carries, in Malaysian political scene, to prevent
infringement of any organs of government towards other's function. However, the decision in the case PP v. Kok Wah Kuan spells out another. Thus, this research examines the implementation of the doctrine of separation of powers in Malaysia prior and after the decision of PP v. Kok Wah Kuan. It also analyzes the weight the doctrine carries in the Federal Constitution. It also provides suggestions and recommendations with the desperate hope to clarify the ambiguity arise from the application of the doctrine in Malaysia.
