KUCHING, June 25: Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) Women’s wing is organising a public dialogue this Saturday on the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA6) and the Federal Constitution and Relation.
The dialogue, a joint collaboration and initiative by the four component parties of Wanita GPS, will also discuss the Oil Mining Ordinance, 1958 (OMO58).
The public dialogue, which will start at 9am at the Kuching South City Council (MBKS) Auditorium, is open to the public and admission is free.
“The objective of this programme is to create awareness and improve constitutional literacy among the grassroots members as well as the public at large.
“It is also aimed at informing the public about our current issues with regards to the Federal Constitution and Relation, OMO58 and MA63, so as to rid any confusion among the public,” Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) Women chief and organising chairwoman Kho Teck Wan said in a statement.
