Law Minister: Constitutional amendment needed before Sabah and Sarawak can be restored as equal partners


KUCHING: An amendment to the Federal Constitution is the first step towards implementing the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) and restoring Sabah and Sarawak's status as equal partners, says de facto law minister Datuk Liew Vui Keong.  

He said this was necessary because Article 1(2) of the Federal Constitution was amended in 1976 to downgrade Sabah and Sarawak as the 12th and 13th states instead of equal partners with Peninsular Malaysia.
