Former Sabah rep underlines three key matters to be considered in the Technical Committee on MA63

KOTA KINABALU: Former Petagas assemblyman Datuk James Ligunjang has underlined three important matters that should be taken into consideration by the Technical Committee on the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63).


Firstly, he emphasized the importance of identifying any breaches in the Federal Constitution that require correction or amendment in order to align with the provisions agreed upon in the IGC Report and Malaysia Agreement 1963.

In his latest social media post, Ligunjang also stressed the need to determine the precise financial entitlements that the State of Sabah is due, particularly in relation to the allocation of 40% of all revenues collected by the Federal Government from Sabah.

Additionally, he expressed his opinion that the Technical Committee on MA63 should pay attention to the implementation of the Borneonisation policy of the Federal Service in Sabah, as outlined in the 20 points agreement.

Sabah asserts its constitutional right to receive 40% of the revenue collected by the Federal Government.

Meanwhile, Datuk Ewon Benedick has been appointed as a minister to assist Deputy Prime Minister II Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof on Sabah affairs.

Ewon, who is also the Minister of Entrepreneur Development and Cooperatives and the Member of Parliament for Penampang, was quoted as saying that his new role is related to the MA63 in the context of Sabah, which includes addressing relevant questions in the Dewan Rakyat and Dewan Negara.
