THE famous announcement on May 27,1961 by Tunku Abdul Rahman, then the Prime Minister of the Federation of Malaya, calling for forging closer political and economic cooperation between Malaya,Singapore,North Borneo,Brunei and Sarawak,is generally taken as the starting point for the formation of Malaysia on Sept 16,1963.
