Voon Lee Shan

KUCHING: Anyone who agrees with the suggestion of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to have Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal from Parti Warisan Sabah (Warisan) as prime minister is childish, not only selling their own conscience but also ousting themselves as clowns.

Parti Bumi Kenyalang (PBK) president Voon Lee Shan stated that a prime minister from East Malaysia is nothing but a puppet of Malaya.

“Despite the 56 seats from East Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak will still not be able to control Malaya dominance, suppression and oppression.

“The prime minister from East Malaysia will not be able to carry the heavy aircraft carrier in stormy seas — it is a joke if he could,” he said in a statement today.

According to Voon, East Malaysia has not settled on the legality of the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) yet, and the flaws surrounding MA63 should be exploited to the maximum before Sabah and Sarawak agree to have anything to do with Malaya.

“Terms and conditions must be set first before we jump into the pit as we had in the past made many mistakes, and yet we want another mistake by getting some people in Malaya to stay in power without realising we are pawns in the political game for their benefit,” he stated.

Voon then highlighted that the terms to be agreed should at least include:

• Malaya to pay all moneys from our oil and gas, including all debts, within a specified time;

• Petronas to not operate in our territory and all oil and gas operations be done by companies set up by Sabah and Sarawak;

• Take back our oil and gas and all marine wealth, territorial waters and boundaries lost to Malaya;

• To return all taxes taken by Malaya from Sabah and Sarawak within a specified time;

• Sabah and Sarawak should have two-thirds of all 222 parliamentary seats;

• Freedom of religion to be practiced in Sabah and Sarawak with no official religion;

• To return all undeveloped lands taken by the federal government;

• Governors from Sabah and Sarawak shall be given opportunity to become the king in Malaysia;

• Sabah and Sarawak be allowed to have their own armies for their defence, and lastly;

• Sabah and Sarawak should be allowed to have their own education systems
