SOUTHERN STATE OF JOHOR TO SECEDE FROM MALAYSIA?


All the while, we thought countries like Sabah and Sarawak in Malaysian Borneo, had the intention of seceding from the federation of Malaysia.
In fact this desire to break away from the 50 year-old federation among East Malaysians has mostly been expressed on the Internet and through social media groups such as SSKM (Sabah Sarawak Leave Malaysia).
A main source of anger is the believe that successive Prime Ministers from Peninsula-based Umno have not fulfilled the terms of the 20 and 18-point agreements which Sabah and Sarawak signed.
These agreements allowed Sabah and Sarawak more freedom in managing state finances, the civil service and education among others.
East Malaysians have long complained that Sarawak and Sabah do not get enough development funds despite the fact that it provides billions to Putrajaya through the sale of its petroleum.
The poll among both rural and urban East Malaysians found that more Sarawakians wanted secession 
compared to Sabahans.
Autonomy to self-govern was the second most preferred choice among Sabahans in the straw poll. 
The first choice was to work together with the current government to solve Sabah’s problems.
In a shock move that is bound to roil Prime Minister Najib Razak's already embattled administration, the younger brother of Johor’s crown prince has warned Johor may secede from Malaysia.
In a post on Instagram, Tunku Idris Sultan Ibrahim(photo) issued a reminder that the Johor government had joined the Malay federation in 1946 on several conditions.
“If any of these conditions are violated, then Johor will secede from Malaysia,” Tunku Idris posted on his Instagram account @tunku_idris.
Among the conditions listed included making Islam the religion of the state, the state’s absolute right over water,
land issues, and the state royal
house to have its own armed forces.
