KUCHING: The formation of Malaysia is the result of Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63). It is never the product of Federation of Malaya 1957, said Assistant Minister in the Chief Minister’s Office (Law, State-Federal Relation and Project Monitoring) Sharifah Hasidah Sayeed Aman Ghazali (pic).
“In simple term, MA63 is the basis of Malaysia,” she told New Sarawak Tribune after officiating at the opening ceremony of fitness centre, Curves Metrocity Kuching, in Jalan Matang here yesterday.
Sharifah Hasidah said the Federal Constitution makes no mention of MA63, which was why state government proposed the insertion of the clause “in pursuant to Malaysia Agreement 1963” in the Federal Constitution but was rejected by Pakatan Harapan (PH) in the Parliament recently.
She said the rejection of the clause raised question on PH’s sincerity in tabling the amendment to Article 1(2).
“If PH is really sincere, why can’t it agree to the proposal?
“If they are sincere, they would surely listen to us but instead, they have rejected the proposed clause in the parliament,”
She said the insertion of the clause would justify the formation of a nation called Malaysia.
