In a press statement, Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg said the state government though an opposition government, was willing to work with the federal government

“The state Barisan Nasional government, even though an opposition government will continue to work with the federal government for the benefit of the rakyat in Sarawak in particular and Malaysia in general.

“Our top priority is to reclaim state rights which have been eroded over the years back to Sarawak as enshrined in the Malaysia Agreement 1963 and the Federal Constitution,” said Abang Johari.

He said the state government would also monitor to ensure that the PH federal government materialised the promises the latter made in its manifesto.
