Celebrate Malaysia Day in Malaya too

KUCHING: Consider holding Malaysia Day celebration in Malaya too, said political analyst Dr Arnold Puyok.

After all, the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) is about solidifying and strengthening the relationship between Malayans, Sabahans and Sarawakians.

“Therefore, the government should consider choosing any state in Malaya to host the celebration in future,” he said.

Arnold further opined that by getting all states to take turns hosting the celebration, Malaysians as a whole would eventually consider the day as truly national in character and not just confined to Sarawak and Sabah.

“We often hear people saying that there would be no Malaysia without Sabah and Sarawak. Similarly, without Malaya as one of the MA63 signatories, Malaysia would not have been possible,” he said when asked to comment on ongoing issues affecting the nation.

“The younger generation yearn for a better Malaysia that belongs to all irrespective of race, religion and regional origin.

They dream of a Malaysia where they can explore their talents and contribute to the development of their country.”
