Legal term is similar to programming language. Important term must be well defined in order to execute a program. Malaysia Day is mentioned in Malaysia Agreement 1963 (143 times) and Federal Constitution (44 instances) as the commencement date of the Federation of Malaysia.
“Malaysia Day” is properly defined as “16 September 1963” in the Article II of MA1963; however, not in the Federal Constitution. The Article 160 of Federal Constitution only defines “Merdeka Day” as “31 August 1957” and “The Federation” as “The Federation established under the Federation of Malaya Agreement 1957”!
Therefore, the current public holiday of Malaysia Day is an “Executive decision” only, it ends when the executive leaves his/her position. But the public holiday of Merdeka Day is a “Constitutional decision”, it remains as long as the Country remains together.
Also, the elites from central government may purposely ignore the definition of Malaysia Day in Federal Constitution, in order to execute the caveats and safeguards given in MA1963 and Inter-Governmental Committee Report at their own wishes.
In other words, the current Federal Constitution violates MA1963 and IGC report; and Malaysia is just an illusion for 54 years. In the author’s description, the Country in fact is “the Federation of Malaya, masquerading Malaysia”.
It is a sad and inconvenient truth. The only way to resolve of course is to demand the proper definition of “Malaysia Day” in Federal Constitution.
