The Sabah/Sarawak issue (2)

…With Zaid’s good intent and by barring him from attending the raya gathering, Anwar is set to resume his practice of misrepresenting the facts about the special rights of sabah/sarawak stipulated under the formation of the federation of malaysia.
His act of steamrolling what is viewed as sacred by people of both the borneon states and forcibly imposing his own agenda reflects the same all too familiar malayan arrogance . It is like a flashed back to the good ol’ days before his and Mahathir’s allegations of PBS wanting to ceased being part of the federation were disproved, raising anew the question of whether he can’t separate fact from fiction or just cynically knows he can lie to the Malaysian people without consequence.

Danildaud, I talked to Anwar just last week. He understands the situation and respects the aspirations of Sabahans. He will intervene to help in finding a solution to the leadership issue of PKR Sabah, not to worsen the situation. Give him a little time to figure out the best option to put PKR Sabah back on track.—Din Merican

I THINK I FOR ONE TRUST zaid ibrahim’s judgment on this more then i would anwar ibrahim’s judgment . hence , i am for Zaid Ibrahim going to SABAH.
SABAH and for that matter SARAWAK , never intended to be MALAY COLONIES , when they joined malaysia. so they should be allowed a free hand. otherwise secession would rear its ugly head.

Peach, free hand? There is such a thing as party discipline. Neither Zaid nor Azmin can ignore the decision of the de facto leader and PKR’s biro politik on matters affecting the interest of PKR. Our colleagues in Sabah and Sarawak must understand what PKR stands for—KeADILan untuk Semua. They must bury their differences through dialogue and compromise in favour of the big picture. –Din Merican

Unlike the distorted facts that you get from your history books , Sabah/Sarawak never joined Malaysia.
It must be emphasized that Sabah ,Sarawak ,Singapore and Malaya formed the federation of Malaysia.

In Sabah’s case it was
the 20-point agreement, or the 20-point memorandum, an agreement made between the state of Sabah (then North Borneo) with what would be the federal government of Malaysia prior to the formation of Malaysia in September 16, 1963. A similar agreement was made between the state of Sarawak and the federal government but with certain
differences.
The 20 point agreement was written for the main purpose of safeguarding the interests, rights, and the autonomy of the people of Sabah upon the formation of the federation of Malaysia. It was originally envisaged that Sabah be one of the four entities in the federation, the others being Malaya, Singapore, and Sarawak. However as times passed, Sabah and Sarawak has ended up being merely one of the 13 states in the federation.

There has been numerous calls for the agreement to be reviewed to take into account numerous factors that’ve been altered only to benefit the Malayan ruled central government.
To date, these cries have fallen on deaf ears. Anwar , whom many are counting on to provide the very much needed ractification of these lopsided affair seems more interested in hijacking the whole process once again.

danil ,
i am glad to inform you that the history book i read and the one you read is the same . i understood it exactly how you have spelled it out.
our good old prime minister of 22 years distorted this 20 point agreement too and accordingly short changed both sarawak and sabah . lee kuan yew was smart . he walked out the first opportunity he had and took singapore with him .
