PKR move to achieve civil service Borneonisation

Filed under: Politics — Hornbill Unleashed @ 8:03 AM

Up to 90% of the education sector and heads of Federal departments in the state should comprise Sarawakians by 2018, says Sarawak PKR.

Towards this end, its chairman Baru Bian plans to table a motion in the upcoming State Legislative Assembly sitting urging the state government to take steps to achieve Borneonisation and equal ethnic parity share in the state civil service.

Baru, who is Ba’Kelalan assemblyman, said Sarawakians were currently under-represented in Federal public services in the state.

He noted that Borneonisation of public services in the state was an objective of the Federation of Malaysia as stated in the Inter-Governmental Committee Report 1962 and recognised in the Malaysia Agreement 1963.

“Article 153 of the Federal Constitution requires that the natives of Sabah and Sarawak be treated in the same way as Malays in respect of reservation of quotas in the public service.

“Article 39 of the Sarawak Constitution requires the Yang di-Pertua Negri to ensure the reservation of offices in the public service to natives of such proportion as he deems reasonable,” he said.

As such, his motion will call on the state government to declare Borneonisation as a policy of every ministry and agency, including the Public Services Commission and Public Services Department.

It also urges the state government to ensure representation by Sarawakians in Federal government recruitment and promotion committees for postings in the state and to ensure full multiracial representation in Sarawak government recruitment and promotion committees.

Baru will table another motion urging the state government to exercise its autonomy to abolish the Biro Tatanegara (BTN) programme in Sarawak and make it non-compulsory for students and civil servants.

He said this was because BTN had “deviated from its purpose of promoting patriotism and civic consciousness” among young Malaysians.

Among others, he said the BTN programmes had referred to minority groups as “pendatang” and taught that the opposition were making policies to destroy the Malay community.

“Recent leaked BTN slides claimed that racism can unite a race for a good purpose and played on religious prejudices and fears,” he said.

He added that Sarawakians had co-existed harmoniously for decades and BTN’s “racist programmes and political propaganda” were a threat to the state’s harmony and cohesiveness.





  1. Civil Borneonisation should have been in force since day one Malaysia was formed but the oppressive and hostile BN cum illegal colonizer has never been sincere in adhering to MA63, that is the 18 Point Agreement. If the next state election is won by BN again, chances are nothing will change because Najib & his administration will continue to exploit Sarawak ( & Sabah) as if there is no tomorrow. The locals must unite in solidarity and boot BN once and for or, Adenan or no Adenan because SARAWAK IS FOR SARAWAKIANS ONLY!!! Better still, Sarawak goes for secession!!!

  2. All rural voters should support PKR’s move because BN cannot offer anything better than this. Likewise, all urban voters should support DAP. If not, those rural people will forever live on crumbs every five years like slaves out from their caves.

  4. Why 2018? It’s going to be 2016 after the country election. We look forward for ‘ ubah-ubah ‘ in the country new administration. Bring back the nostalgia of speaking English among civil servants of the good old days. It is a sad situation that English is only spoken widely among the retired class while many younger generation are rather conservative in expressing in English. It is very much to their loss due to their limitation of the language.
