SIBU: Sarawak, as a political entity, has played its role in ensuring that the country is stable again under the government of Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who has taken the responsibility to rule the country effectively, says Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg.

He said the state government had decided to give its fullest support to the Prime Minister as Sarawak did not want to see Malaysia affected by any situation which was indefinite.

Abang Johari said the people of the state was thankful to the Federal Government for being a functional government which understood the needs and aspirations of the people.

“Malaysia’s success in curbing the spread of Covid-19 proves that the government led by Tan Sri Muhyiddin is able to govern the country as expected by the people.

“Sarawak also welcomes and thanks the government for the provision of various categories of Bantuan Prihatin Negara which have been extended to those affected by the pandemic to help ease their burden,” he said.

On Malaysia Agreement 1963, Abang Johari said the state was confident that the meeting with the Federal Government would see no losers.

More importantly, he said there would be no derogation of constitutional rights, special safeguards and status accorded to Sabah and Sarawak as agreed by the nation’s founding fathers and embedded in the Federal Constitution.

Meanwhile, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong, in a Facebook posting, extended his Malaysia Day wishes.

“Citizens of various races, religions and cultures live peacefully under the roof that is Malaysia. This is based on the five principles of the Rukun Negara which is used as the key to unity, harmony, stability and success of Malaysia,” he said.
