Sarawak's State Government Set-Up

Sarawak is a component of the Federation of Malaysia.  Similar to its counterpart Sabah, Sarawak is regulated under the State Constitution and the Constitution of Federation.  The subjects under which the State and Federal Governments can respectively legislate are laid out as the Federal and State List under the Ninth Schedule of the Federation of Malaya Constitution. In addition, there is also a concurrent list of subjects which come under the purview of both the State and Federal Governments.
