Any Internet reader keen on news on these two states will have found out that the people there are full of grouses against the central government. They feel betrayed by a central government which has robbed them of the autonomy that was guaranteed under the 1963 Malaysia Agreement. They are angry that Barisan Nasional has unfairly treated them by not equitably returning to them the revenue derived from their rich natural resources, by marginalizing them in the public services, by illegally displacing them from their ancestral land, by allowing massive influx of illegal immigrants (mainly in Sabah) and by neglecting economic and infrastructure and educational development resulting in hundreds of thousands of their youth having to leave their homes to seek economic survival in the Peninsula and Singapore.

Such decentralization of power will bring positive structural changes that will uplift the economy through a more efficient use of resources as well as ensuring a more equitable distribution of development and resources. Affirmative Action Policy The much abused New Economic Policy will be replaced by a need-based affirmative action policy. The Economy The economy will be given an uplift through the elimination of corruption, abuse of power and cronyism, and the full practice of accountability and transparency.

Weighed down by the infighting tendency among themselves, the Dayaks are now dispersed into several political parties on both sides of the political divide. On the ruling side, the Dayaks are in PBB (which is led by Taib), SPR and SPDP. On the opposition side, they are in SNAP (which has recently joined forces with Pakatan Rakyat), and the deregistered PBDS (many of them have joined PKR). PKR has recently appointed a new chief, Baru Bian, to lead its movement in Sarawak. Baru Bian, who comes from a small ethnic community Lun Bawang but accepted as a Dayak leader, is a well respected human rights lawyer who has fought many Customary Land Right cases for villagers who have been unjustly deprived of their land.
