No more talk of leaving, Najib tells Sabah, Sarawak

najibs-sabah-sarawak-1There will be no more talk of Sabah and Sarawak’s secession from Malaysia. It is not going to happen, Prime Minister Najib Razak said today.

“If it is something we did, which clearly violated the agreement and took away the rights of the people of Sarawak and Sabah, then we will make amends.

“Any amendment to the Malaysia Agreement 1963 must not go against the Federal Constitution,” he told The Sun Daily today.

Najib also told non-Muslims not to concern themselves with Hadi’s Bill, which seeks to amend the Shariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965 to enhance the powers of the shariah courts.

“Non-Muslims must understand that this is not hudud. This is to empower the shariah courts and has nothing to do with non-Muslims.”

On Umno’s relationship with PAS, which had recently been the subject of much speculation due to perceived government support for the Islamist party’s struggles, Najib said Umno agreed on certain issues with PAS, which was today committed to championing the cause of the ummah.

During a recent TV3 interview, Najib said naysayers had predicted that Barisan Nasional (BN) would fare badly in the Sarawak election because of the goods and services tax but they had been proven wrong.

He said this was also clear in the Sungai Besar and Kuala Kangsar by-elections, which saw BN candidates retaining their seats.

On the 14th general election, he said Umno must avoid bickering and infighting to present a united front to the voters.

“We must also be mindful of what we say, even if we are just division leaders, because the public will take what is said to be a reflection of the whole party.”

  2. Dayaks must exercise extreme cautions in supporting PBB and PDP from now on because the president of PBB and PDP had expressed their support for Hadi’s hudud bill just because Najib had said the bill would not lead to implementation of hudud.

    • Why must BN components and non Muslim lawmakers be sucked into a political plot schemed by just two political leaders, one fighting for his own political survival and the other who is expanding his bigotry agenda. Malaysia is a peaceful and progressive secular state. We do not need empowerment of existing Shariah law.

  3. Fuk you Bugis pirate. Sarawakians did not demand for amendments to Malaysia Agreement 1963 which forms the Federal Constitution. We want the Federal government to recognise and comply with the Malaysia Agreement 1963. Do not put words in our mouths or twist what we have been demanding. So what if the Sarawak government is not part of BN controlled by Umno Baru elites.

    • Najib was brave to say this knowing that The majority of Sarawakians have given him the mandate in the last state election?

  4. It that a threat or an advice? The UMNO Baru controlled Putrajaya has yet to fully comply with MA 63 and the PM has been dragging his feet on Sarawak’s and Sarawakians’ demand for compliance of the 18 points Malaysia Agreement. Do not take us as fools or slaves of UMNO Baru controlled Putrajaya.
