GE13: Sabah BN manifesto pledges to solve Sabah illegal immigrant problems #PRU13

KOTA KINABALU: A pledge to continue to find solutions to Sabah illegal immigrant problems and solutions to native land issues is one of the highlights of a special 16-point Sabah Barisan Nasional manifesto.
The special manifesto by the state Barisan, aimed at countering various local issues, including oil royalties raised by the opposition, was launched by Sabah Barisan chairman Datuk Seri Musa Aman together with heads of component parties at the Sabah Umno headquarters here on Monday.
``This is our commitment to the rakyat. We are continuing our efforts. Barisan Sabah will do more,'' he said in dismissing opposition promises in their manifesto for Sabah as unrealistic.
The state Barisan manifesto promises to implement the recommendations of the ongoing Royal Commission of Inquiry to solve the illegal immigrant problem, he said in apparent reference to the proposal by the opposition to reissue identity cards (ICs) for Sabahans.
The manifesto, which printed in Bahasa Malaysia, English, Chinese and Kadazandusun, promises to also implement new laws and institutions to speed up solutions to land matters under Native Customary Rights (NCR).
Sabah Barisan also promised to protect the spirit of the 20-point Malaysia Agreement of 1963 while also promising equal opportunity for all in state service.
``The government has committed to continue special cash payments, development and operational funding exceeding 20% of oil and gas revenue,'' Musa said, promising to match the Pakatan Rakayat's promise to give Sabah 20% royalty.
In launching the manifesto, Musa said that the state Barisan government was prudent in its spending and has over RM4.088bil in reserves and had helped reduce poverty rates from 19.7% to 8.1% over the last three years.
Among the achievements of the state Barisan government included the issuance of communal titles that involved over 192,000 villagers while tourism earnings hit the RM5.17bil mark last year.
