The Sarawak government has decided not to table a motion reclaiming the state’s rights in its state assembly sitting next week.
This follows Chief Minister Adenan Satem’s meeting with Prime Minister Najib Razak, NST Online reported.
The news portal said Najib was ready to discuss the Malaysia Agreement 1963.
Adenan said Najib was ready to look into whether the Malaysia Agreement and Federal Constitution had been misinterpreted.
“On Saturday, our prime minister said he was ready and is keeping an open mind to discuss the agreement.
“In view of what he said, I am confident that he will do the right thing.
“Therefore, there is no need to pass a resolution in demanding our rights. I trust him.
“We believe in consultation instead of confrontation.”
The CM spoke after chairing a pre-state assembly sitting meeting here today.
Adenan was commenting on a statement by Najib in Kota Kinabalu that he did not wish to take away the rights of Sabahans.
“I do not want to take (away) the rights of Sabahans, I want the rights of Sabah folks to be upheld.
“But don’t talk about leaving Malaysia. Because we have a bigger agenda, we do not want to be a second-rate, mediocre country.
“We want Malaysia to be among the best nations,” he had said.
