Borneanisation in Sabah 20-Pt Agreement – “Janji Ditepati”?


Point 8 of Sabah’s 20-Point Agreement 1963 leading to the formation of Malaysia states:

“8. Borneanisation: of the public services should proceed as quickly as possible.”

Recently, the favourite slogan on the lips of the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak is “Janji Ditepati”.

Has Point 8 of Sabah’s 20-Pt Agreement on Borneanisation been honoured?

In reply to my question in Parliament, the Prime Minister has disclosed that out of 133 Federal Departments (including Federal statutory bodies) in Sabah, 61 (45.9%) agencies are headed by Sabahans while 72 (54.1%) are headed by non-Sabahans.

Is this “Janji Ditepati”?

    Gerakan is being given the deal to only win 14% of Penang state seat and they get to run Penang..Malays control 99% top position of all civil service dept in Federal govt and rank & file is close to 90%.. Having 41% non-Sabahan in Sabah?

    Its simply an insult to Sabahan for too long..

    Correction even 45.9% non-Sabahan is an insult to Sabahan much less 54.1%…
