The renewed demands by Sabah and Sarawak for oil royalties and greater devolution of powers is prompted by the federal government’s growing influence rather than any perceived vulnerability, said state leaders and analysts.
Despite controversies linked to Putrajaya, they said the federal government’s powers have not been reduced, which required both east Malaysian states to be more vocal in demanding a return of the rights they said were due to them according to the Malaysia Agreement 1963.
“It has nothing to do with Putrajaya being weak or strong,” Sarawak Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri Dr James Masing told Malay Mail Online.
“Sarawak is led by the leader (Tan Sri Adenan Satem) who finally realises that we have been short-changed all this while,” Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) president said while declining to state who has short-changed Sarawak.
