For Sarawakians, Pakatan Harapan’s (PH) perceived lack of commitment to the fulfilment of its oil royalties and other provisions of the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) has defined the coalition’s first 100 days in power.

Mr Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah, vice-president of Sarawak’s ruling Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB), said PH’s failure to increase the state’s oil royalty from five to twenty per cent was “most glaring”.
