The federal government for the past 58 years had taken lots of our wealth from taxes collected by various federal government departments. Sarawak had lost its oil and gas wealth since 1976 to Petronas and it is speculated that this loss is in the sum of about RM100 billion every year. Since federal has lots of money taken from Sarawak, there is no reason GPS government should use state’s own money to fight Covid-19 pandemic in the state.
So far, no Prime Minister had protected Sarawak rights since Malaysia was formed and the voices from GPS leaders in the last few days seeking the coming 9th prime minister to be mindful of taking care of Sarawak’s rights will be a dream only.
I had been asked on many occasions by many Sarawakians on how Sarawak can unilaterally gain independence from the Federation of Malaysia and as a politician and lawyer, I have an obligation to answer this question for the benefit of Sarawakians on how Parti Bumi Kenyalang (PBK) will be able or wish to do this.
PM may wish to limit the term of prime minister to two terms, but, what is the purpose of limiting the term of office of prime minister? Is it to prevent an incompetent prime minister to sit in office for too long or to prevent or reduce corruption and abuse of power by the prime minister if he is in office for too long?
The late CM Tan Sri Adenan Satem gazetted July 22 as Sarawak Independence Day in 2016 although Sarawak was not independent yet. This 722 date has no significance at all unless Sarawak truly is independent from the federation of Malaysia.
Sarawak CM Abang Zohari Tun Openg and GPS government should use the weak position of PM to force the federal government to return all our territories, territorial waters, oil and gas resources which Sarawak had lost through a series of Acts passed by Parliament. It is not difficult for these resources to be returned back to Sarawak. It could be done by Parliament revoking the necessary laws.
The King has decreed the state of emergency be continued until 2 February 2022 with no elections to be held within that period.
The assertion in Parliament that the Emergency Ordinances been revoked without the consent and knowledge of the King showed that the PN government has no respect at all for the King. Datuk Seri Takiyuddin, being the de facto law minister who made this assertion in Parliament should gentlemanly tender his resignation. What he did had not only embarrassed the King but as if telling the King and nation that the King need not be respected.
We urge all Sarawakians to be united to fight against Covid-19 and we must take the fight against Covid-19 seriously. The state government can't do much without the help and coperation of citizens.
Recently, some people think that "7.22" is #Independence Day, and they have reported the incident to the #police. Did Sarawak have independence on July 22, 1963? Is "July 22" Sarawak Independence Day?
Parti Bumi Kenyalang is a multi-racial political party in Sarawak and having an achievable mission :"IN QUEST OF INDEPENDENCE".
We plan to field 82 candidates in the coming Sarawak Election. We are not taking any donations but your gifts in appreciation of our struggles are appreciated.
