Liew clears air on proposed MoU with GRS State Government

KOTA KINABALU:  Pakatan Harapan Sabah (PH Sabah) Chairman Datuk Christina Liew clears the air on the signing of a proposed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) State Government.

“We have almost completed the preliminary draft of the proposed MoU. Any conclusion is subject to mutual agreement on the terms of bipartisan cooperation with the government. 

“I hope this will clear the confusion over premature media reports on the matter. We will issue a formal  notification when the right time comes,” she said in a statement on Sunday.

According to Liew, who is also Sabah PKR Chief, PH Sabah (comprising PKR, DAP, AMANAH and UPKO) started discussion on the proposed MoU about a month ago.

“All component parties had been actively involved in the discussion under the big umbrella of Sabah Agenda Reform which emphasises on stability of the government, economic recovery and control of Covid-19 in Sabah. Other pertinent issues covered are related to Sabah’s constitutional rights, including the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63),” she explained.

Meanwhile, Liew said she could not chair the meeting on Saturday night, and was represented by PH Sabah Secretary Mustapha Sakmud.

“Presently, I am hospitalised after a minor surgery for a broken wrist. I had a bad fall while visiting my constituents in the Tawau parliamentary constituency for a food basket assistance programme recently,” the Tawau MP added.
