Adenan said the motion would specifically focus on the need for the federal government to observe Sarawak rights as enshrined in the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63), The Inter-Government Committee Report (IGC) 1963 and the Cobbold Commission Report 1962.

“The motion will be tabled by one of the (state) ministers,” he told reporters after opening Parti Rakyat Sarawak’s (PRS) 4th Triennial Delegates Conference (TDC) here today.

The State Legislative Assembly sitting will be from Nov 21 to 30.

Sabah, Sarawak, Singapore and Malaya formed the Federation of Malaysia in 1963. Singapore left the federation in 1965.

On other matters, Adenan announced that the state government was looking into building coastal highways to accelerate growth in coastal areas in the state.

He said Sarawak Deputy Chief Minister and Infrastructure Development and Transportation Minister Tan Sri Dr James Jemut Masing and Sarawak Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Wong Soon Koh had been handed the task to study the matter.

On the request to increase the intake of Dayak in the state civil service, he said State Secretary Tan Sri Mohammad Morshidi Abdul Ghani had been instructed to look into the matters.

As for the request to include more Dayak contractors in the Pan Borneo Highway project, he said that he was all for this and promised to assist them.

“But I warn you (Dayak contractors) do not be “Ali Baba” (rent seekers) after getting the projects,” he added.
