KUCHING, Dec 16: Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof will bring up matters relating to the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) in next week’s scheduled Cabinet meeting.
In pointing this out, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said it will also involve some specific considerations for development as well as basic principles that affect Sarawak and Sabah.
“Those that we can implement, will be implemented, and I have given a period of one month for that purpose.
“In addition, I have given assurance to Premier of Sarawak Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg and Fadillah that the things that have been agreed upon cannot be undone,” he said during a press conference held after the signing ceremony of agreement between coalition parties under the unity government, streamed live on Bernama TV Facebook page today.
Anwar said other matters that require the amendment of regulations and laws will certainly take more time for the next parliamentary session.
He also said included are matters related to financial, many of which are big issues in Sarawak and Sabah, including the authority to approve projects and the recognition of workers in both Bornean states.
“It (the paper work) has been completed by the Ministry of Finance (MOF) and will be handed over to the Fadillah to chair before bringing it back to me to be presented in the Cabinet meeting next week,” he added. — DayakDaily
