Milton Foo questions Sarawak PH

There are only a few days left before the amendment of Federal Constitution on Article 1(2) is tabled in the Parliament. However, the people of Sarawak are still unclear and do not know the contents of such amendment. This is absolutely unfair to Sarawak. It proves that the MPs from Pakatan Harapan (PH) Sarawak fail to speak or voice out for Sarawakians in the Parliament.

The chairman of PH Sarawak YB Chong Chieng Jen has not only failed to explain to the people of Sarawak the contents of the proposed amendments to the federal constitution, but instead asked the MPs from Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) to refrain from disrupting and give their full support to the proposed constitutional amendment. GPS government of Sarawak has shown more concerns on the substance rather than in form and restoration of rights in the amendment of constitution. Yet Chong describes it as “disruption” and “sabotage”. What if the constitutional amendment is unfavourable to Sarawak thus jeopardising Sarawak’s interests? It is affront to logic for GPS MPs to support the amendment blindly if this is the outcome of the amendment. Chong’s remarks have proven that he does not represent and stand in the position of Sarawakian to safeguard the interests of Sarawak, but instead he represents Malaya whom he has all along shown obedience and acquiescence to.

As a member of parliament, Chong who is also a deputy minister in the federal cabinet, why is it so difficult for him to get or obtain the contents of bill for constitutional amendment for the people of Sarawak? Or even Chong himself has been kept in clueless by his Malayan leader, without knowing the contents of such amendment? I challenge Chong and PH MPs from Sarawak to make known to public especially Sarawakians the contents of such constitutional amendments as soon as possible so that the people can do review or comment on it.

The stance of SUPP Youth Central remains resolute in that we shall not compromise on and will always fight against any political attempt via constitutional amendment or alteration in disguise which in fact erodes the sovereignty of Sarawak & harms the interests of the people of Sarawak.
