Abstract: The Federal Constitution of Malaysia proclaims itself to be the supreme law. As rules regulating the system of governance, the constitution is the focal points in resolving disputes regarding rights and responsibilities of the government and the governed. The courts in applying the constitution in resolving contentious disputes sometime arrive at erroneous conclusions either through misinterpretation or misunderstanding. A correct interpretation and understanding of the constitution require an appreciation of its history and its spirit. This paper considers the importance of the constitution by looking at the problem in construing the constitution and provides suggestions in ensuring proper application of the rules.
