Amendments May Be Required On Acts, Constitution In Returning Sabah, Sarawak Rights

Last Update: 08/03/2018

KOTA KINABALU, March 8 (Bernama) -- Amendments might be required on certain acts and probably, certain matters in the Federal Constitution to ensure the smooth return of Sabah and Sarawak rights as provided in the Malaysia Agreement 1963, said Minister in the Prime Minister's Department, Datuk Seri Abdul Rahman Dahlan.

Stressing that the process would take time, he said the Attorney-General's (AG) Chambers was working diligently on the matter.

"We have to be thorough. Some will require amendments because it involves the judiciary, distribution of power, distribution of economy, and so on."

"In fact, about two weeks ago, I received a letter from the AG's Chambers to take to the Cabinet several provisions that need to be changed," he told reporters after opening the Ang Pow Festival at Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Cina (SJKC) Good Shepherd here today.

Abdul Rahman said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and the government remained committed towards the aspiration of respecting the rights of the people in Sabah and Sarawak.

During the event, the minister announced RM2.9 million for the construction of a new school of SJKC Good Shepherd at a new site to allow the neighbouring Good Shephard Catholic Church to expand.
