A DAP leader has given a few reasons as to why Pakatan Harapan (PH) cannot return Sabah’s oil and gas rights.

Chan Foong Hin who is Sabah DAP Secretary said in a Facebook interview on Monday, Sabahans must consider the feelings of other Peninsular states when making such demands.

“If Sabah asks for 40%… how will people in Selangor react? How will people in Penang react?”

“Maybe Penang and Selangor will ask if Sabah is asking for too much.”

He then cited Selangor as an example of contributing 24% of the country’s GDP.

“But how much allocation did Selangor receive from the Federal Government?”

Apart from Selangor, the incumbent Kota Kinabalu Member of Parliament also cited Penang.

“Another example is Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), it has the same budget as Penang.”

“If Penang and Selangor feels that did not receive their fair share of allocation, does it mean that when Sabah asks for 40%…… we have to think of the whole Malaysia. The whole Federation.”

“Is it, every state government should also ask for more rights from the Federal Government?”

Excerpt of the interview can be viewed below.

For the record, in 2017, Lim Guan Eng who was the then DAP Secretary General promised to return 20% oil royalty and 40% tax receipts to Sabah and Sarawak if PH successfully captures Putrajaya.

However, upon capturing Putrajaya, Guan Eng who became Finance Minister then told the people of East Malaysia that the promise cannot be fulfilled, citing lack of money and economic situation as the reason.

  1. Was it not that Guan Eng should calculate and also do a deep analysis on how many percent should fairly given for their oil royalty instead of blindly giving empty promises??…..

  2. Chan foong hin, you are the most stupid Sabahan that I ever known. Did other States in Malaya do have written agreement for them to have 40% return income? Written in the Malaysia constitution the Sabah right. If the federation can’t fulfill than just disolved Malaysia.

  3. Oi kepala otak kau. This 40% was already promised. If unable to pay now at least give a timeline. Not outright reject. You’re sabahan you should find a solution for sabahan. Not a solution for peninsular. They have their own people to do that job

  4. What kind of feeling do they want ? Giving them 65 years of good infrastructure and facilities is still not good enough ? Apa lagi mereka mahu ? Sabahan are only asking for a fair share of infrastructure, not more than what West Msia is already having. I think YB doesn’t feel the needs of Sabahan but your feeling is clouded and shielded by your political ambition . I think its time to change a MP for KK.

  5. Consider Peninsular’s feelings? What kind of nonsense is this? Then how about Sabahan’s feeling for not having what’s rightfully ours? Do you think Sabah and Sarawak are just two states under Malaysia? We formed Malaysia as an equal partner with Malaya and Singapore in 1963 and it was stated in the MA63, that for every Rm1 of the resources from Sabah and Sarawak, 40 cents will be given and 60 cents will go to the federal government. What feelings? And geographicaly, look at the size of Penang, and Selangor, is it even as big as half of Sabah? How do you expect us to develop if we were given the same amount of money as a state that is not even a quarter of Sabah’s size. Think before you make a statement dear sir
