Adenan told to get S'wak motion in Parliament instead of 'acting' in state assembly

Published:  |  Modified:

Sarawak Chief Minister Adenan Satem should instruct one of his federal ministers to table a motion in Parliament to restore Sarawak's position in the Federation of Malaysia instead of "play acting" in the state assembly.

Sarawak DAP chief Chong Chien Jen said this in response to Adenan's proposal to table a motion in the state assembly calling for Sarawak's position to be reverted to one of the three regions in Malaysia instead of being one of the 13 states.

Sabah, Sarawak and peninsular Malaysia with 11 states were previously recognised as three regions in the federation but this was changed in a 1976 constitutional amendment.
