Abandoning MA63 is to abandon Malaysian federation: Ongkili

The de facto Sabah and Sarawak Affairs minister says the Malaysia Agreement 1963 is a sacred and foundation document of the formation of the federation of Malaysia.

KOTA KINABALU: Datuk Seri Dr Maximus Ongkili described the recent proposal for a “new Malaysia Agreement” as short-sighted and will not strengthen the country.

Disagreeing with Umno deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan, the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Sabah and Sarawak Affairs) said the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) is a sacred and foundation document of the formation of the federation of Malaysia.

“Which means, no MA63, no Malaysia. Further, with the constitutional amendment unanimously passed by Parliament in December 2021, MA63 is now part of the Federal Constitution,” said Ongkili in a statement today.

“The proposal for a new Malaysia Agreement, as suggested by Tok Mat, and supported by Sabah Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Seri Dr Jeffrey Kitingan, is simply short-sighted and would not strengthen Malaysia.”
