GRS govt steadfast on MA63 demands
KOTA KINABALU: Chief Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Hajiji Noor stressed that the Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) government remains steadfast behind its stand that all demands as enshrined in the Malaysia Agreement 1963 be fulfilled.
This was voiced out by Hajiji during the virtual meeting on MA63 which was chaired by Prime Minister Tan Sri MuhyiddinYassin on Tuesday.
According to Hajiji, the discussion between the state and federal governments is ongoing.
“Both the state and federal governments are committed towards resolving the matter,” he said, adding that there is no need to make the matter any bigger as what is important is that the state government has given its opinion and stand and that the federal government has responded positively.
“We must also take into consideration that the Prime Minister has openly given his commitment as well as assurance that efforts will be made to address and resolve the demands made by the state government,” Hajiji said in a statement yesterday.
MA63 is an agreement signed on July 9, 1963 between the Federation of Malaya, United Kingdom, Sabah, Sarawak and Singapore to form the Federation of Malaysia.
