‘PM just using delay tactics on MA63’

Filed under: Politics — Hornbill Unleashed @ 9:36 AM

See Chee HowPrime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s claim that he is open to discussions about the rights of Sabah and Sarawak under the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) is merely part of his delay tactics, said Batu Lintang assemblyman See Chee How.

According to See, Najib is merely repeating what he said two years ago.

“The federal government is clearly just applying delay tactics, continuing to make veiled and soothing promises to Sarawakians and Sabahans until the coming general election. This Umno-led BN federal government does not seem to be sincere in their pledges,” he told thesundaypost yesterday.

The state Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) vice-chairman said the federal government should not be dragging its feet on the devolution of powers and returning of autonomy to the two Borneo states according to what was promised by the country’s founding fathers.

“The PM must answer to and act on those demands and representations made by Sabah and Sarawak. By repeating that the federal government is open to discussion today, the federal administration has betrayed the confidence and trust of those Sarawakians and Sabahans who have supported the Umno-led federal government.

“By continuing to ignore and downplay the wishes and demands of the Sabahans and Sarawakians, the federal government is doing so at their own peril. I do not think that anyone in any part of Sabah and Sarawak will be applauding such stale assurances with any enthusiasm anymore,” he said.

According to See, the next general election, which must be held before the end of June 2018, may see the two states deciding to vote for a new federal government.

“Between now and the dissolution of Parliament to pave way for the next general election, the present federal administration must be reminded that the Sarawak State Assembly had unanimously passed two motions demanding petroleum justice and autonomous powers for Sarawak for equitable development and better future for all Sarawakians and Sabahans.

“We have made clear representations against the Territorial Sea Act 2012, challenging its constitutionality in our attempts to safeguard Sarawak’s (and Sabah’s) territorial integrity, we had made specific representation to restore the position of Sarawak (and Sabah) as equals to the Federation of Malaya in our Confederation, and various specific demands for budgetary autonomy in finance which were provisions guaranteed under the Federal Constitution,” he said.

See called for an immediate open and transparent mechanism for the devolution of powers and returning of autonomy to East Malaysian states.

    • Ironically most Sarawakians do not share your sentiments and voted for Najib’s BN in the last state GE to give him the mandate to continue the Pek Moh’s legacy.

      • We know that Najib have been feeding the poor rural voters with BRIM OPIUM. Nevertheless all right thinking , well informed and educated Sarawakians must continue to reach out to our poor rural brethren to educate them.

  4. Najib knew Sabahans do not mind the extravagance of MO1 and will continue to provide fixed deposit to BN-Umno.

  5. We totally agree with you YB See Chee How. Every single educated Malaysian would have realised how cunning, greedy and a serial liar Najib is. Najib has used BRIM as his political opium to the rural folks and the Umno Baru controlled BN components have been abetting him to lie, cheat and get voted so that he can continue to steal and plunder our people and country. MA 63 is not for discussion or negotiations. Malaysians in Sarawak and Sabah only expected and we are demanding FULL COMPLIANCE.

  6. The PM is busy playing salesman and international politics with like minded leaders of other countries. He doesnt seem to care about his FIXED DEPOSITS back home.
    He will regret his lackadaisical attittude towards resolving this very explosive issue.
    He probably have to say adieu to Sarawak sometime in the near future?!!

  7. The Malaysia Agreement 1963 has been dishonoured, has never been reviewed, and is clearly viewed by Umno as nothing more than worthless scrap of paper. And here you have a man who is an inveterate lair, does not honour his word, and is obviously a grand thief. Just press for Sabah’s position as an equal partner of Malaya to be reinstated and chart your own course.
