MALAYSIAN PM PROMISES MORE AUTONOMY TO EAST MALAYSIA


KUCHING, Sarawak, Malaysia - Saying the call for secession was “stupid talk,” Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak announced today that Sabah and Sarawak will be given more autonomy.
Najib said he had instructed Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Ali Hamsa to thrash out the autonomy details with the state secretaries of the two Borneo states, which will include streamlining of the administration.
  • “There is too much duplication (in work and decision making processes in state and federal governments).
  • “I will give the empowerment to Sabah and Sarawak,” he said at the launch of the National month and fly the national flag programme today at Padang Merdeka in Kuching.
However, he labelled the call for secession “stupid talk,” echoing a sentiment Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem said in his address earlier.
The prime minister said the decision of Sarawak's forefathers to become an independent state within Malaysia was apt as it had given Sarawak a lot of benefits like security and economic prosperity
The Sarawak chief minister had raised the question of giving Sarawak more autonomy on decisions to administer the state last June when the PM made a trip to Kuching.
