Pakatan Harapan (PH) recently launched its official manifesto for the 14th General Election (GE14), titled “10 promises in 100 days, to build the nation and fulfill hope”. The 200-page manifesto, which took the coalition 15 months to complete contains five pillars covering 60 promises to be fulfilled over the next five years.
In total, there are 60 pledges (and then some) that PH is offering to Malaysians. Out of all this, ONLY EIGHT were thoughtfully planned out for Sabah and Sarawak! It’s a far cry from 1/3 of what was pretentiously promised by the opposition coalition for ‘equal partnership’ that they boasts in the media!
Shockingly enough, PH has the gall to claim that they are and has always been focused on fighting for the rights of Sabah and Sarawak under the pretext of the Malaysian Agreement (MA63).
This begs the question as to why the call for Sabah Sarawak rights wasn’t voiced out by any of the opposition leader in the past general elections?
Why only now, when the Sarawak State government is making headway in the devolution of power and claiming what’s rightfully ours (Sarawak and Sabah) under MA63, is the opposition so boorishly claiming for the same rights?
Have they ran out of fresh new ideas? Or are they just lazy to think of anything substantial and meaningful for Sabah and Sarawak?
As I read more into PH manifesto, I find so many ludicrous promises/pledges which, if not already been achieved by the state government, it is already in the pipeline for the future of Sarawak and Sabah.
Worst of all, PH couldn’t even detail out what exactly they intend to do for Sabah Sarawak in that mere eight promises that they offer for us!
I will further expose the fallacy and political rhetoric that the PH is playing with the manifesto for Sabahan and Sarawakian just for the sake of attaining their personal political goals and agenda.
So to all Sabahan and Sarawakian, more not so shocking exposé on the overrated PH GE14 Manifesto soon, so stay tuned!
