KUCHING: The four promises made by Pakatan Harapan (PH) is just an attempt to fish for votes, reckons political analyst Dr Nur Aida Kipli.
According to her, the planning and direction of PH in fighting for the rights of Sarawakians and Sabahans was still unclear.
“The promises made are ambitious as if giving unattainable hope.
“The Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) issue is not something that can be resolved in a short period of time and is not a ‘one-off project’ as the future of Sarawakians and Sabahans is at stake.
“Thorough studies, research and discussions should be done transparently and wisely,” she told New Sarawak Tribune on Sunday (Nov 13).
She was commenting on the four promises announced by PH chairman Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim should PH win the 15th general election (GE15).
She added that the formation of a coalition government after GE15 from various party coalitions, which would necessarily happen and monopolised by the national party if it secures a large majority, would affect the main commitments that needed attention such as the issue of political stability, increasing economic growth and sociocultural development.
“There is a probability that MA63 would become a side issue as the focus will begin to deviate from the existing ruling power,” she opined.
