Resolutions on UEC among eight passed


KOTA KINABALU: Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) delegates passed eight resolutions at its 26th conference yesterday, including urging the Sabah State and Federal Governments to give due recognition to the Unified Examination Certificate (UEC).

The party also resolved to urge the Federal Government to review the Cabotage Policy, set up a regulatory body to regulate the freight and other related charges, and to develop and promote Sepanggar Port into a transhipment hub of this region.

The delegates further urged the Federal Government to transfer their entitlement to five per cent oil royalty based on value of the gross production to the State, as well as to revise the amount of the annual Special Grant which Sabah entitles under Party IV of the Tenth Schedule in the Federal Constitution.

LDP also urged that the doctrine of moderation be upheld and practised in Malaysia.

In addition, the party members urged the national leadership to exhibit strong political will against racial bigotry and religious intolerance by taking stern actions against the perpetrators.

The delegates also resolved to urge the Federal Government to take drastic actions to restore public confidence in the enforcement agencies and financial system.

The last resolution is to express full support to the Federal Government in its move to empower Sabah and Sarawak.
