Article 10 (1) – Freedom of Speech, Assembly and Association

Subject to Clauses (2), (3) and (4) –

  1. every citizen has the right to freedom of speech and expression;

  2. all citizens have the right to assemble peaceably and without arms;

  3. all citizens have the right to form associations.

However, it must be noted that the above Clauses state that the Parliament may by law impose restrictions on the rights in paragraph (a), (b) and (c), in the event that it is deemed necessary in the interest of protecting national security, friendly relations with other countries, public order or morality, privileges of Parliament or of any Legislative Assembly or to provide against contempt of court, defamation, or incitement to any offence.1

In this regard, The Commission has observed that there appears to be limitations to the right of Malaysian citizens to participate in the conduct of public affairs, whether directly or indirectly imposed upon by the Government of Malaysia.
