VK Liew: Abang Jo will likely now support same MA63 bill he opposed


The GPS government in Sarawak was playing political games when it failed to support crucial MA63 amendments last April, said ex-minister Liew Vui Keong, who added that he expects Chief Minister Abang Johari Openg to end up supporting the same amendments he resisted.

Liew who was Minister in the Prime Minister's Department for Legal and Parliamentary Affairs under the Pakatan Harapan administration was talking to University of Tasmania professor James Chin about the failure to amend Article 1.2 of the Federal Constitution in April 2019 to "restore" Sabah and Sarawak's status as "equal partners" with Malaya by restoring Article 1(2) to its original form in 1963.
