KOTA KINABALU: Sabah and Sarawak have lost a "golden opportunity" to regain their position as equal partners in Malaysia when a Constitutional amendment to Article 1(2) failed to be passed in Parliament, says the de facto law minister.

Ironically, 19 MPs from Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) were among the 59 lawmakers who abstained from voting on the amendment to restore Sabah and Sarawak's rights as equal partners in Malaysia.
