2013 Apr 26 - Yong: Sabah autonomy is an issue

Sabah autonomy is an issue

The fact that the caretaker Prime Minister was forced to address the validity of the 20-point issue means that BN and Umno are on the defensive.

KOTA KINABALU,April 26, 2013: Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) president Yong Teck Lee has refuted caretaker Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak's claim that Sabah's autonomy is a "non issue".

"When the PM is forced to talk about Sabah autonomy in his last campaign stop in Sabah, it means that indeed it has become the hottest and main issue in this general election.

"It is deceptive for the PM to say that autonomy is a "non-issue"," Yong, a former Sabah chief minister said yesterday.

He said the fact that Najib had to address the issue also meant that the BN coalition and Umno was on the defensive and had to finally admit that the 20-Point agreement is valid.

"Now Pakatan Rakyat and BN must respect, accept and recognise the spirit of 20 Points which forms the basis of the 1963 Malaysia Agreement," said Yong.

Yong also reiterated that the failure to fully recognise the 20 Points and Sabah's autonomy would compromise the status of the United Nations-recognised Malaysia Agreement.

"If the Malaysia Agreement and Sabah autonomy is compromised, then the Philippines' Sulu claim over Sabah will resurface at the international arena," said Yong.

"Malaysia has only one choice - to respect, accept and recognise Sabah autonomy or else to lose Sabah forever. Therefore, on this issue, Sabah and SAPP have already won," he said.

Restoring the political autonomy of Sabah is on the SAPP agenda and is contained in its election manifesto.
SAPP has also pledged to issue 'Sabah Identity Cards' to counter and resolve the perennial issue of foreign immigrants obtaining Malaysian citizenship through such dubious means including the infamous 'Project IC'.

The local opposition party has also vowed to reinstate the Borneonisation of Sabah civil service as well as make land and economic reforms.
