KOTA KINABALU – Warisan Sabah Monday hailed the announcement by Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem that his government would be tabling the motion in the State Legislative Assembly sitting on reclaiming Sarawak rights.
The newly minted party’s vice president Junz Wong also echoed the recent call by MP Penampang Darell Leiking, for an emergency motion to be tabled in the Sabah State Assembly on the reinstatement of Sabah rights and that Sabah is ‘an equal partnership as that of West Malaysia.’
Darell, who is also Warisan deputy president has stated clearly that the State Assembly due to sit this Nov 18-24 could easily put right the wrong done to Sabah.
“Adenan has gotten Darell’s message, what about our Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Musa Aman? It’s never too late to learn,” Junz posed the question in a statement Monday.
Junz said the motion should specifically focus on the need for the federal government to observe Sabah rights as enshrined in the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63), The Inter-Government Committee Report (IGC) 1963 and the Cobbold Commission Report 1962 as per Adenan’s administration motion.
Junz who is also Likas Assemblyman said that Warisan Sabah would be moving a similar motion in coming November Sabah State Sitting as he felt Sabah BN would not have the courage to do so.
He reminded Musa that a strong Sabah stand to reinstate Sabah rights would go a long way for the demand of Sabah and Sarawak in reinstating Article 1(2) into the Federal Constitution.
“I’m sure Sarawak will unanimously make a solid stand on the motion to be tabled. What about our Sabahan lawmakers,” he added.
“This is our moment where all of us as Sabah elected representatives to put aside our political ideology, interests and stand up for right and to reinstate Sabah as that equal founding nation that formed the Federation of Malaysia.
“Will Musa show his leadership and political will in reclaiming Sabah rights ? All eyes on Sabah government now!” Junz concluded.
