Purpose of signing a petition

Should we organize a petition to ask President Halimah to stop the POFMA law, by refusing to give assent?

Many people said - there is no point. She will sign her assent to the law. She will ignore the petition.

The objectors miss the point. We know that she will give her assent. She probably has no power to refuse.

But the purpose of the petition is to register the strength of the opposition to the law.

We need everyone to come forward and sign the petition.

If we get 100,000 signatures, it will pass a message to the government.

If we get less than 10,000 signatures, the government can rightly say that the petition does not have the support of the people.

So, it is better to be positive and support the petition.
