Parti Kerjasama Anak Negeri president Henrynus Amin says DAP is claiming credit by issuing a 'half-baked statement' on the proposed constitutional amendment without giving details.
It says according to MA63, the number of parliamentary seats has to be distributed evenly among Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak.
Its president Yong Teck Lee says this will have to be done if Sabah and Sarawak are given equal status.
There would be no need to amend the constitution if the rights of Sabah and Sarawak were respected and proven through tangible policies and programmes.
Keningau MP Jeffrey Kitingan says Sabah and Sarawak's equal partner status is meaningless if the two states' other rights continue to be ignored.
Any attempt to deny this fact is seditious and an attempt to overthrow the Federal Constitution, says Gopal Sri Ram.
