Explaining MA 63


Political analyst and author of ‘The Queen’s Obligation’, Zainnal Ajamain has took to task the recent announcement by Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng that it will take at least a year to come up with a formula for revenue-sharing with Sabah and Sarawak as he, Lim did not really understand MA 63.

Zainnal was speaking to about 200 audiences in a forum,” Sarawak, Our Future’ held at Pustaka Miri yesterday.

Having a vast knowledge on MA 63, Zainnal pointed out that the federal government has no right to determine the sharing of revenue from Sabah and Sarawak.

The free-admission forum was organised by Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) Piasau Branch and attracted over 200 participants. Piasau State Assemblyman, Datuk Sebastian Ting is the moderator and the speaker included Datuk David Teng, an SUPP veteran.

Among the topics discussed were MA63 and the Oil Mining Ordinance (Amendment) Bill 2018.

The participants were also invited to ask questions during the forum in a Q and A session.

Ting said the forum was brought back to ensure that Miriams understood what MA 63 is about and how it affects their lives. This is the second time such a forum was organized.
