[Image: 20211012-anwar_ibrahim-bernama.jpg]

KUALA LUMPUR – The proposed amendments to the federal constitution that will see Sabah and Sarawak given greater recognition should be done in the interest of the rakyat and not elitist politicians, said Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim (Port Dickson-PH).

The opposition leader said this should be given priority should the amendments be passed, beyond just words on paper that could potentially grant additional powers to state leaders to abuse.

“The provisions we have agreed upon are to uphold the democracy and justice in this country, not merely to guarantee power for the states (of Sabah and Sarawak),” he said in the Dewan Rakyat today.

“There must be a guarantee that the goal is to protect the interests of the rakyat, which is different to protecting the interests of state leaders and elitist politicians. That is why we want to ensure this (amendment) is implemented in its entirety.

“This is not a power transition for political leaders, but for the rakyat. There is a difference.”
