On sixteen September 1963 Malaysia got here into being with the accession of Sabah, Sarawak and Singapore to the present Federation of Malaya. This publication marks the fiftieth anniversary of this awesome occasion in South East Asia's background. the focal point of the publication may be regularly at the event of Sabah and Sarawak as matters of the federation. It appears to be like on the event of federalism from a couple of assorted views, maintaining in brain not only the results of federalism on Sabah and Sarawak but in addition the results at the federation as an entire. Has the discount of 1963 been adhered to? Has Malaysian federalism been a profitable instance of this way of presidency in Asia, or has the cut price been undermined in methods opposite to the unique deal within the Malaysia contract of 1963? What were the sensible results on East Malaysia in the course of 50 years?

In particular the interview identified Dato Dr Peter Mooney incorrectly as ‘Tan Sri Sir Peter Mooney’. These errors have been corrected in this ebook edition. ANDREW HARDING (Singapore) JAMES CHIN (Kuala Lumpur) July 2014 These essays are the product of a workshop discussion at the National University of Singapore in September 2013, organised by the Centre for Asian Legal Studies. The purpose of this gathering was to revisit the creation of the Malaysian Federation and how it has fared over the last fifty years from the different disciplinary perspectives of a group of scholars in law and political science.
Very obviously too the separation of Singapore from the Federation in 1965 has had far-reaching consequences for both countries, including for Sabah and Sarawak for whom the whole nature of the federal bargain was changed less than two years after it was entered into. Ang Hean Leng at the workshop posed an interesting question whether we neglect the impact of federation on Malaya itself: is there some force in the idea of Borneonisation of Malaya, as opposed to its opposite, which is stressed in several chapters of this book?
States are entitled under the Constitution to certain grants, which are calculated according to formulae. These grants are constitutionally guaranteed and set out in detail in Schedule 10, so that there is no element of discretion involved. First, there is a Capitation Grant, which is based on the annual population projection for the state, as assessed by the federal government; being graduated, it favours states with a small population. The amounts payable are amended from time to time by Parliament according to inflation and population increase, but Parliament may not reduce the grant to less than 90 per cent of the previous year’s grant.
