Sabah and Sarawak is legally not a part of Federal Malaysia based on conditional partnership they agreed when Peninsular Malaysia become Federated in 1963. The 3 major reason for Sabah and Sarawak to join in partner with Federal is Military , Monetary and Taxation. Sabah and Sarawak has partnered with Federal Malaysia based on 20 point agreement, their own State Constitution separate from Federal Constitution. The 20 point agreement has been forged prior to Sabah and Sarawak association to Federal Malaysia . Being a partner to the Federation does not mean to become a state of Malaysia. This is very clear that separate State of Sabah and Sarawak Constitution is in place. unlike the Peninsular Malaysia that all covers by Federal Constitution. The conditional partnership of Sabah and Sarawak cannot be contituted as full member of the Peninsular Federation of Malaysia.

Sabah and Sarawak can at anytime decide if they still want to be a part of the Federal Malaysia through partnership by simply passing a law by the State Government annulling the partnership. This is the point of view by State MP's to segregate because the federal is abusive of the Financial allocation exercise over the two State. Sabah and sarawak combined contribute 60% of Malaysian economy and yet they only receive 5% of the total economic contributions to those two state. Sabah and Sarawak has their own rights, religions and land laws , they pay in return a tribute to Federal Malaysia in return of providing the Military and Monetary by paying excessive Taxation.
