KUCHING: Both Sarawak and Sabah are equally con­cerned on the non-ad­her­ence to the Malaysia Agree­ment 1963 ( MA63), says Deputy Chief Min­is­ter Tan Sri Datuk Amar Dr James Je­mut Mas­ing.

“Both Sarawak and Sabah are equally con­cerned on non­ad­her­ence to MA63. This was ex­pressed by both lead­ers. Our con­cern is for the bet­ter­ment of Malaysia as a na­tion, so that the fed­er­a­tion stays strong and united in the years to come,” Mas­ing said af­ter re­ceiv­ing a courtesy call by Min­is­ter of For­eign Af­fairs Datuk Seri Ani­fah Aman at his of­fice here yes­ter­day.

Mas­ing who is also PRS pres­i­dent, said the two of them also ex­pressed con­fi­dence that both states would be able to de­liver for the BN in the up­com­ing 14th gen­eral elec­tion (GE14).

“Both Sarawak and Sabah ex­pressed con­fi­dence in re­tain­ing BN seats comes GE14,” he said.

Ani­fah is the younger brother of Sabah’s Chief Min­is­ter Tan Sri Musa Aman. Both broth­ers are Umno supreme counci l mem­bers. Ani­fah is also chair­man of the steer­ing com­mit­tee on de­vo­lu­tion of power for Sabah while Sarawak is rep­re­sented by Min­is­ter in the Prime Min­is­ter’s depart­ment Datuk Seri Nancy Sukri.

Cur­rently, the BN in Sarawak con­trols 25 out of the 31 par­lia­men­tary seats while Sabah BN con­trols 21 out of the 25 seats.
