In the upcoming year-end parliamentary session, the government will be tabling its proposed amendments to the Constitution to finally allow Malaysian women to confer citizenship to their overseas-born children.

Astro Awani’s Melisa Idris talks to Yayasan Chow Kit co-founder Dr Hartini Zainudin and Lawyers for Liberty co-founder Latheefa Koya about these developments.
