Kit Siang: State secretary row violates spirit of Selangor constitution

The appointment of Datuk Mohd Khusrin Munawi as the Selangor state secretary without first consulting Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim is a violation of the spirit of the state constitution, Lim Kit Siang claimed today.

The DAP parliamentary leader refuted today arguments by palace officials that there were no legal provisions which stated that Khalid’s consent was needed for the appointment, saying that the argument was “flimsy and unacceptable.”

“Going by this literal interpretation, Putrajaya should not have involved the Sultan in the appointment of the state secretary as there is equally no mention in the state constitution that the Sultan must first be informed of the appointment nor that any royal consent is needed,” said Lim in a statement.

The Ipoh Timur MP said that although there was no mention in the Selangor state constitution on the role of the MB in the appointment of the state secretary, Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Sidek Hassan should have been extra careful in appointing the “most unpopular officer” to work with the state Pakatan Rakyat (PR) government.

“The Chief Secretary, who has been delegated the constitutional task to make the appointment, should be mindful of the different political coalitions running the federal and Selangor state governments and the importance of ensuring an appointee who could work as a bridge-builder or at least not seen as inimical to the Selangor state government interests vis-à-vis the federal government,” said Lim.

Najib is denying the undeniable when he claimed his 1Malaysia slogan is not political

The Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak is denying the undeniable when he claimed that his 1Malaysia concept is not political but a tool to foster unity among the different communities for nation-building.

Najib cannot deny that in the 20 months since the introduction of Najib’s “1Malaysia, People First, Performance Now” slogan, instead of giving Malaysians a new sense of being Malaysian, the reverse has taken place.

As a result, the brain drain of talented Malaysians regardless of race has again returned to the fore, despite the proposed establishment of a Talent Corporation to attract the best brains in the world to Malaysia.

The DAP election machinery will be gearing up for the Tenang by-election to help ensure an opposition victory, the party's election bureau said today.

It has yet to be decided which party in the opposition pact will contest the by-election, but the DAP and its partners "will go all out" to ensure an opposition win, he said in a statement.

The by-election follows the death of Barisan Nasional assemblyman Datuk Sulaiman Taha, 59, early today at the Ampang Puteri Hospital here due to complications arising from diabetes.-Bernama

Kit Siang accuses Najib of using Budget 2011 to keep BN in power

The DAP’s Lim Kit Siang said today that Budget 2011 clearly showed the Najib administration had no appetite for reform and was using public funds to keep the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) in power.

“The Budget for 2011 has all of the attributes of a blunt tool for distributing public funds to UMNOputras, BN cronies, and vested groups that constitute the vote bank of the Barisan,” the influential opposition party’s adviser said in a media statement.

The Ipoh-Timur MP pointed out that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had failed to incorporate the economic reform measures recommended by its hired think tank.

Kit Siang walks out of Dewan in 'disgust'

KUALA LUMPUR: Opposition stalwart Lim Kit Siang left the Dewan Rakyat in “disgust” this morning when Deputy Speaker Ronald Kiandee refused to entertain his attempt to pose a supplementary question on the New Economic Model.

The original question regarding the effectiveness of the NEM in achieving its objectives was raised by Ismail Abdul Muttalib (BN-Maran) and Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department K Devamany responded.

In a statement issued later, Lim said he wanted to raise several points, including the absence of Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak and the many ministers in his department to answer the question.

“This shows that the Barisan Nasional government is neither really seriously nor fully committed whether to Najib’s 1Malaysia concept, NEM or Parliament,” he added.

Apart from this, the DAP leader also wanted to know “why for more than six months not a single minister dared to state that the NEM was not against Article 153 of the Federal Constitution to check the rise of racism because of the rhetoric of communal extremists, although the prime minister has gone to the United Nations general assembly and Asia-Europe dialogue to call for a global movement of moderates against extremists.”

Lim also wanted to know if Najib's administration had taken full ownership of the proposals in the NEM for Malaysia to escape the two-decade long middle-income trap to achieve sustainable and inclusive high-income developed nation status by 2020 and not regard the NEM proposals as mere “trial balloons” of a group of experts from the global market perspective as said by Najib in June.

The veteran politician also wanted to quiz the government's stand in particular on the NEM Strategic Reform Initiative (SRI) 5 for “transparent and market-friendly affirmative action” which would “consider all ethnic groups fairly and equally as long as they are in the low income 40% of households… taking into consideration the needs and merits of the applicants.”

Parliament rejects Kit Siang's motion on headmasters

KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 11, 2010): The Dewan Rakyat has rejected a motion from Lim Kit Siang (DAP-Ipoh Timur) for the House to discuss the issue of two school heads alleged to have made racist remarks against non-Malays in August.

Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia said although the matter was of public interest and specific, it was not urgent as it has been addressed by the government.

"I was informed that the government, through the Education Ministry and Public Services Department, has initiated disciplinary action against both of them. So, this matter is not urgent and I reject the motion,” he said.
In his motion, Lim said the display of such racist attitude by school heads from Kulai, Johor and Bukit Selayang, Kedah shows lack of credibility .

He said the government’s failure to act against them proves that there was no political will or correct administration philosophy in the country to curb racial bigotry.

"All these are direct insinuations towards the theme of the National Day celebration this year which is '1Malaysia Generates Transformation' and is in conflict with the prime minister’s declaration for zero-tolerance against racism,” he added.

Lim urged Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to repeat his call in the country for all religions to be moderate which he made during the United Nations General Assembly in New York recently.

If DAP is anti Islam......

KUALA TERENGGANU - former Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Nizar Jamaluddin said PAS did not rule out the possibility that its candidate for the Galas by-election might be from the Orang Asli community.

Mohamad Nizar, who is also a member of the PAS Executive Committee, said this at a dialogue session here last night which was also attended by PAS central committee member Mohamad Sabu and DAP advisor Lim Kit Siang.

Meanwhile, Lim regretted the allegation that the DAP was anti-Islam which was made at a ceramah organised by an Umno division recently.

Describing the allegation as slanderous, Lim said Islam was the country's official religion and if the DAP was anti-Islam, the party leaders would have been imprisoned a long time ago.-Bernama

DAP Anti Islam'; Satu Fitnah Dan Dusta

KUALA TERENGGANU - Sekiranya Parti Tindakan Demokratik (DAP) itu anti Islam, tentulah semua ahli dan pimpinan DAP telah dimasukkan ke dalam penjara kerana Islam adalah agama rasmi yang termaktub dalam perlembagaan.

Penasihat DAP, Lim Kit Siang berkata sekiranya DAP anti Islam, Dato' Seri Hishamudin Hussein selaku Menteri Dalam Negeri mestilah mengambil tindakan.

"Kalau DAP anti Islam, kita semua sudah masuk dalam penjara, oleh kerana Islam agama rasmi (dalam perlembagaan), (Dato' Seri) Hishamuddin sebagai Menteri Dalam Negeri perlu mengambil tindakan, tetapi kita tahu ia (DAP anti Islam) tidak benar,

"tetapi dia (Hishamuddin) benarkan Umno Besut mengadakan ceramah yang begitu tidak bertanggungjawab,"jelasnya.

Lim berkata demikian dalam sidang media selepas menghadiri Majlis Makan Malam dan Dailog Bersama Pemimpin Pakatan Rakyat yang diadakan disebuah hotel disini semalam 8 Oktober.

Menurutnya sikap Hishamuddin membenarkan ceramah itu diadakan menunjukkan beliau bukan seorang yang mempunyai prinsip

Beliau yang juga Ahli Parlimen Ipoh Timur berkata Umno begitu terdesak sehingga sanggup menggunakan isu perkauaman dan isu sensitif.

Katanya, politik perkauaman dan sensitif yang diamalkan oleh Umno adalah satu politik merbahaya yang boleh mnganggu gugat keharmornian hidup rakyat berbilang bangsa dan agama di negara ini.

"Dan, ini adalah cara politik yang berbahaya, satu politik terdesak (desperado), Umno begitu terdesak sehingga rela untuk merosakkan keharmonian negara kita,

"ini (DAP anti Islam) tidak benar, ini satu fitnah dan dusta,"tegasnya.

DAP to take legal action against Umno over ceramah

The DAP said today that it will take legal action against Umno over the Malay ruling party’s plan to hold a ceramah tomorrow in Terengganu on the DAP being anti-Islam.

Petaling Jaya Utara DAP MP Tony Pua said the ceramah was part of Umno’s strategy to frighten the Malay community into voting for Barisan Nasional.

“There will be a ceramah headlined ‘DAP anti-Islam’ by Umno Besut. Umno wants to use this to frightened Malays in supporting Barisan Nasional. It is malicious and we will get our legal bureau to take all the necessary actions against Umno for holding this event with such a defamatory headline,” he said.

Pua (picture) called on Umno president Datuk Seri Najib Razak to cancel the ceramah after the prime minister’s recent call for a need to marginalise extremists at the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

Kelantan opposition leader Datuk Md Alwi Che Ahmad is slated as one of the speakers at the ceramah in Besut.

The DAP has already lodged a police report in Kuala Terengganu and will lodged another report in Besut this evening. - MalaysianInsider

Polis diMinta Hentikan Ceramah 'DAP Anti-Islam'

KUALA TERENGGANU -  DAP Kuala Terengganu telah membantah tindakan Umno bahagian Besut menganjurkan ceramah isu semasa bertajuk 'DAP Anti Islam', yang disifatkan sebagai mengembang kebencian masyarakat Melayu dan Islam terhadap DAP.

Justeru, satu laporan polis telah dibuat di balai polis Kuala Terengganu, semalam, Khamis, 30 September.

Dalam laporannnya, Pengerusi DAP Kuala Terengganu, Ng Chai Hing turut menyatakan penganjuran ceramah tersebut merupakan satu fitnah dan pembohongan yang berniat jahat untuk memburuk dan mencemar

kredibiliti DAP yang semakin mendapat kepercayaan dan sokongan terutama daripada kalangan orang Melayu dan Islam.

Menurutnya lagi, tindakan Umno itu boleh mencetus kemarahan kaum dan mengundang suasana huru hara dan perasaan kurang senang antara kaum.terhadap Umno Besut kerana penganjuran ceramah itu bukan

bertujuan untuk memberikan maklumat bahkan lebih menjurus kepada provokasi perpecahan dan suasana tegang antara kaum.

Oleh itu, dengan membuat laporan tersebut, beliau berharap pihak polis bertindak telus dan tulus menghentikan ceramah itu, bagi mengelak sebarang keadaan yang tidak diingini daripada berlaku.

"Ekoran dengan ceramah ini, poster dan 2 kain rentang besar telah dipasang di Bangunan Umno Besut dan di depan Sekolah Rendah Kebangsaan Chung Hwa Besut, telah menyebabkan kaum Cina berada didalam suasana kemurungan dan rasa kurang selesa,"tegasnya. itu, Setiausaha DAP Cawangan Sungai Tong Setiu menyatakan, penganjuran ceramah tersebut bertentangan dengan aspirasi Perdana Menteri ketika bertemu Presiden Amerika baru-baru ini.

Menurut Nasser Zainal, Dato' Seri Najib Razak bertemu Barrack Obama bagi mengurangkan 'Islamofobia' sebaliknya Umno Besut menyemarkkannya.

"Sekarang ni banyak sangat cakap pasal perkauman, keagamaan. Baru-baru ni semasa najib berjumpa dengan obama, dia pun ada beritahu pasal islamophobia. Jadi sekarang di peringkat negeri kita bercakap pasal

islamophobia. Jadi tidak ada seragam antara peingkat negeri kuasaan Umno dan peringkat pusat di bawah Najib,

"Jadi saya ingat tajuknya sendiri memang bertentangan dengan aspirasi perdana menteri kita sebagaimana yang diuar-uarkan di washingon baru-baru ini,"jelasnya ketika ditemui selepas membuat laporan polis


Katanya, sepatutnya ceramah seperti itu tidak kerana tidak merapatkan hubungan di antara kaum di antara Melayu, Cina dan India, malah ia bertentangan dengan konsep 1 Malaysia.

Oleh itu, beliau mahu pihak polis melakukan satu siasatan terhadap ceramah tersebut.

"Satu siasatan (mesti) dibuat terhadap ceramah yang dikatakan DAP anti islam, sedangkan DAP sebuah parti 'multiracial', walaupun sebahagian besar penyokongnya orang Cina, tapi ianya berbentuk pelbagai kaum, tajuk ini sebenarnya telah lari,"kata Nasser.

Ceramah anjuran Umno Bahagian Besut tersebut akan diadakan pada 1 Oktober di Padang Bola Sekolah Kebangsaan Padang Luas, Jertih Terengganu. yang disampaikan oleh Ketua Bahagian Umno Besut, Dato' Seri Idris Jusoh, Ketua Pembangkang DUN Kelantan Datuk Mohd Alwi Che Ahmad dan Abdullah Saamah.

Laporan polis telah dibuat oleh Pengerusi DAP Kuala Terengganu, Ng Chai Hing pada jam 10.15 pagi ditemani oleh Timbalannya, Tan Poh Kok, serta Setiausaha dan Timbalan Pengerusi DAP Cawangan Sungai Tong Setiu, Nasser Zainal dan Othman Salleh.

Dato’ Seri Idris Jusoh Sudah Hilang Rasional

Lajnah Perpaduan Nasional Badan Perhubungan PAS Negeri Terengganu (BPPNT) menyifatkan tindakan Mantan Menteri Besar Terengganu, Dato’ Seri Idris Jusoh sudah hilang rasional dan kewarasan apabila menganjurkan satu ceramah untuk menghentam DAP di Besut, satu daerah yang tidak ada walaupun ‘setengah’ cawangan parti tersebut,

Selaku bekas Timbalan Menteri Persekutuan dan Mantan MB Terengganu, Idris sepatutnya lebih arif tentang kedudukan polarisasi kaum dan politik negara dan negeri Terengganu.

Sebagai orang lama dalam Umno, Idris harus menunjukkan contoh teladan kepada generasi muda,  sesungguhnya politik ‘sensitif’ dan ‘rasis’ tidak akan menguntungkan proses perpaduan antara kaum, samada di peringkat nasional ataupun dinegeri Terengganu.

Muhyiddin champion of anti-national, anti-1Malaysia : Kit Siang

All Malaysians want to know whether the scandal of the 46-day inaction by the Najib administration against the two school principals who made incendiary, racist and insensitive statements against students in schools will be top on the agenda of Wednesday’s Cabinet meeting or whether Cabinet Ministers would be like the traditional three monkeys with eyes that see not, ears that hear not and mouths that speak not!

Noises are being made by MCA, Gerakan and MIC outside the Cabinet protesting against the Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s statement claiming that he is powerless to do anything against the two principals as this falls within the ambit and jurisdiction of the Public Services Department and the Chief Secretary – but all these are empty posturings by these political parties when their Ministers in Cabinet maintain a discreet and self-serving silence on this issue.

Pakatan Rakyat must be prepared for snap 13th general elections to be held in six month

The Mentri Besar of the usurper Barisan Nasional Perak state government, Datuk Seri Zambry Abdul Kadir has called on Barisan Nasional component parties to be prepared for snap polls and Barisan Nasional component parties are openly calling on their members to be ready for early general elections next year.

DAP and Pakatan Rakyat must be prepared for snap 13th general elections to be held in six months.

In his 18 months as Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak has launched three major initiatives – 1Malaysia policy; the New Economic Model and on Tuesday, the RM1.4 trillion Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) to achieve a high-income economy by 2020.

No real transformation in ETP, says DAP

By Syed Jaymal Zahiid
KUALA LUMPUR: The Najib administration's ambitious Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) is but a grandiose blueprint that has all but the necessary reforms needed to revitalise the flagging economy, DAP Klang MP and economist Charles Santiago said today.
Santiago said much of the modus operandi of the projects identified in the ETP were carbon copies of those under the Mahathir administration where the economy relied chiefly on pump-priming activities.

"What we are seeing under the ETP is a massive infrastructure roll-up for the next 10 years when we already have excessive property market hangover," he told FMT.

Kit Siang claims ETP just pie in the sky

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 22 — DAP’s Lim Kit Siang claimed today that the Najib administration’s Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) was rich in rhetoric, business-school clichés and lofty speeches, along with unrealistic assumptions about the country’s economic growth prospects.

He also compared the government’s ambitious programme to that of a command economy and the collapse of the Soviet Union in the late 1980s.

Malaysia unveiled yesterday high-aiming plans to boost its economy by mobilising more than a trillion ringgit of private investment, although questions remained over whether the money would materialise.

The plans ranged from a new mass transit system to relieve congestion in Kuala Lumpur, to building a huge oil storage facility next to Singapore to form a regional oil products trading hub.

A casino project in Sabah is also being considered.

The Performance Management and Delivery Unit (Pemandu) said it had identified investments worth RM1.38 trillion over 10 years, of which 60 per cent would come from the private sector, 32 per cent from government-linked companies and eight per cent from government.

The investment aims to double per capita income and push Malaysia into the ranks of “developed” nations by 2020, rebalancing Asia’s third most export-driven economy towards domestic demand and the service sector.

Lim, however, was unimpressed with Pemandu’s presentation, saying that ETP was based on “unrealistic targets” and failed to address existing government policies which have resulted in the country being caught in a middle-income trap.

Perutusan Hari Malaysia 

Selamat menyambut Hari Malaysia. Hari ini adalah hari yang istimewa buat kita semua. Gagasan Malaysia menjadi harapan untuk membawa rakyat ke arah perpaduan yang lebih erat dengan perkongsian sumber-sumber alam serta pembangunan yang lebih adil agihannya.

Sayangnya, setelah 47 tahun pembentukan Malaysia, kekayaan sumber alam Sabah dan Sarawak tidak dimaanfatkan dengan adil dan sempurna. Sehingga hari ini masih ramai rakyat Malaysia di kedua-dua negeri itu hidup dalam keadaan daif dan menyedihkan. Dalam pada itu pula, ada juga pihak-pihak tertentu yang mengaut keuntungan besar dari kedua-dua negeri itu tanpa mempedulikan nasib rakyat anak negeri.

Mahathir is the major obstacle to Najib’s 1Malaysia and National Transformation Agenda

The implications of Mahathir’s statement merits attention.

Here we have the country’s longest-serving Prime Minister in fact telling the current Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak that despite this year’s Merdeka Month theme: “1Malaysia: Transforming the Nation” and the latter’s 1Malaysia policy and National Transformation Programme for 18 months since assuming the highest office in the land in April last year, national unity and inter-racial relations had never been so bad at present as compared to any time in the 22 years Mahathir had been Prime Minister from 1981 – 2003.

Ever since I had first suggested certain reforms to the Selangor state economic policies to create a more business-friendly environment to attract more investors as well as to become more equitable to the poor and less fortunate in the state, I've come under daily attacks by Umno leaders as well as their mouthpiece, Utusan Malaysia.

The attacks have culminated in all 22 Umno Youth divisions in Selangor filing police reports against me yesterday, charging that my suggestion was "dangerous, sensitive and provocative while inciting hatred and dissatisfaction against government policies" and of course, "threatening public order and peace".

Ceramah YB Tony Pua & YB Teo di Paka Dungun

Siapa 'Budak Kroni' Dapat Tender RM50 juta

DUNGUN - Siapakah seorang 'budak' dari negeri Terengganu, berumur 21 tahun ketika menubuhkan sebuah syarikat dan dua kemudiannya, berjaya memperolehi tender-tender kerajaan bernilai lebih RM50 juta ?

Menurut Setiausaha Publisiti DAP, Tony Pua, sudah pastilah, dia adalah seorang kroni kepada mana-mana pimpinan Umno dan Barisan Nasional Terengganu.

(Gambar - Tony Pua ketika menyampaikan ucapan dalam majlis makan malam bersama masyarakat Tionghua Dungun, di Batu Enam)

Beliau berkata, beberapa bulan lalu, beliau telah memeriksa laman web pemerolehan kerajaan pusat dan mendapati satu tender di Hulu Terengganu yang agak pelik.

"Di Hulu terengganu, asrama bagi 200 penuntut. Jumlah harganya ditulis kat sana (laman web), RM77 juta kontrak, saya kira. RM77juta kalau dibahagikan kepada 200 bilik, setiap bilik harganya RM340 ribu.

"kalau (begitu) setiap penuntut kita beli banglo cukuplah (dengan harga sebegitu),"katanya ketika menyampaikan ceramah di Taman Uda, disini Khamis 29 Julai.

Menurutnya, selepas beliau dedahkan maklumat tersebut di parlimen, menteri kata, maklumat dalam laman web tu salah dan meminta maaf.

"(Menteri kata) Bukan RM77juta. Tapi RM7.7 juta,"kata Tony.yang kemudian mendedahkan syarikat tersebut adalah Rafa Sepakat Sdn Bhd

Tony berkata, beliau merasa curiga keatas syarikat tersebut dan membuat semakan

"Saya pun ada sikit curious (curiga). Saya nak check (semak), siapa ni Rafa Sepakat."katanya.

Menurutnya, setelah membuat semakan, beliau mendapati bahawa syarikat tersebut adalah satu syarikat yang baru ditubuhkan pada tahun 2008, tetapi tidak menjalankan apa-apa perniagaan.

Namun, kata Tony, pada bulan oktober 2009, syarikat tersebut mendapat kontrak daripada (tender) kerajaan.

"Beberapa kontrak yang jumlahnya lebih kurang RM50 juta. Kontrak-kontrak pembelian, di semua tempat, termasuk pembinaan asrama yang bernilai  RM7.7 juta itu. So, jumlahnya RM50 juta. Nampaknya besar juga. Siapa pemiliknya?,"soal Tony.

Semakan buletinonline mendapati perincian syarikat tersebut adalah seperti link dibawah;

FDI crashing because investors lost faith, says DAP

By Boo Su-Lyn | The Malaysian Insider
KUALA LUMPUR, July 25 — A lack of confidence in Malaysia’s economy has driven foreign direct investment (FDI) to our neighbours, leaving the once-roaring “Asian tiger” to compete with Indochina countries, the DAP said today.

The World Foreign Investment Report (WIR) 2010 released by the United Nations showed that FDI in Malaysia plunged 81 per cent last year, trailing behind countries like the Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia and Singapore.

“For the first time ever in history, Malaysia attracted less investment than the Philippines,” DAP national publicity secretary Tony Pua said in a statement today.

Jimat RM750 juta, Tiris RM28 bilion

KUALA NERUS - Kerajaan Barisan Nasional mendakwa dapat menjimatkan perbelanjaan sebanyak RM750 juta dengan menarik balik subsidi yang dinikmati oleh rakyat dan menaikkan harga minyak, gas dan gula,

Pada masa yang sama sehingga kini, kerajaan BN bukan sahaja gagal mengutip ketirisan perbelanjaan sebanyak RM28 bilion, bahkan tidak mampu menjelaskan bagaimana wang kerajaan sebanyak itu telah hilang.

Pengerusi DAP Kuala Terengganu, Ng Chai Hing berkata kerajaan turut mendakwa sekiranya pelarasan subsidi tidak dbuat, kerajaan Malaysia akan muflis menjelang tahun 2019.

Beliau menyelar kenyataan tersebut dan menyatakan bukan subsidi yang akan menjadikan negara muflis, tetapi perbuatan rasuah dan penyelewengan yang diamalkan oleh pemimpin Umno dan BN.

"Sebenarnya bukan subsidi yang akan menjadikan negara bangkrap tetapi amalan rasuah (dan penyelewengan) yang berleluasa dilakukan oleh Umno dan BN,"katanya ketika berucap dalam majlis penerangan Pakatan Rakyat di Jalan Kelantan, disini 16 Julai..

Pada 5 Februari lalu, ketika berucapmerasmikan portal berita KonsumerKINI, Ahli Parlimen Johor Bharu, Datuk Seri Shahrir Abdul Samad berkata kerajaan gagal memberikan penjelasan tentang ketirisan yang berlaku dalam perbelanjaan kerajaan sebanyak RM28 bilion.

Beliau, yang juga bekas Menteri Perdagangan Dalam Negeri dan Hal Ehwal Pengguna menyatakan, ketirisan perbelanjaan itu telah dilaporkan oleh akhbar berbahasa Inggeris pada bulan Oktober 2009, dengan memetik kenyataan daripada Menteri Kewangan Kedua dan Laporan Ketua Audit Negara.

Click here for blog post written in English
~ 郭史光庆

今日是赵明福逝世一周年忌日,赵家今早重返在案发地点即沙亚南商业大厦(Plaza Masalam),举行拜祭仪式。
由于鉴定赵明福死因的验尸庭在1年后仍未找出真相,赵明福的妹妹赵丽兰誓言,若家人不满意验尸庭的结果,肯定会再次要求会晤首相纳吉,因为后者曾答 应为赵明福伸张正义。
NONE大约50名公众人士,大部分是民联领袖、雪州政 府与非政府组织代表、赵明福生前的朋友与同事,于今早10点就到场追悼死者。

不过,公众只能够聚集在大厦大厅, 因为大厦管理层仅允许赵家亲人、雪州行政议员欧阳捍华和沙登区国会议员张念群等一行7人进入大厦5楼的阳台,即赵明福一年前的卧尸地点,进行拜祭。

Perlantikan Pembangkang sebagai Pengerusi PAC di DUN Selangor

Persidangan Dewan Negeri Selangor pada kali ini mencipta sejarah bukan sahaja di sejarah politik dan sejarah demokrasi berparlimen Selangor tetapi juga di negara Malaysia.

Selepas menggubal Enakmen Kebebasan Maklumat yang pertama di Selangor, kini Dewan Negeri Selangor akan mencipta sejarah buat pertama kali berlaku di Malaysia, di mana Dewan akan meluluskan usul untuk melantik wakil daripada Pembangkang sebagai Pengerusi PAC kerana sebelum ini belum ada lagi Dewan Perundangan seperti Dewan Negeri Selangor yang melantik wakil pembangkang sebagai pengerusi PAC.

Ini akan menetapkan satu predecence baru dalam sejarah demokrasi berparlimen di Malaysia dan mencerminkan status negeri Selangor sebagai sebuah negeri yang betul-betul maju, bukan sahaja daripada fizikalnya tetapi juga dari segi sahsiah politiknya kerana ini merupakan kali pertama anggota daripada pembangkang dilantik menjadi Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Kira-Kira Wang Awam atau nama singkatannya Public Accounts Committee (PAC).

Usul ini juga mencerminkan cita-cita kerajaan Selangor untuk memastikan prinsip keupayaan, kebertanggungjawaban dan beramanah betul-betul diterap ke dalam pentadbiran kerajaan negeri Selangor dan bukan retorik semata-mata.

DAPSY gesa Pemuda UMNO: Tarik balik kenyataan dan minta maaf

Pergerakan Pemuda Sosialis DAP (DAPSY) menggesa Pemuda UMNO Malaysia segera mengarahkan Pengerusi Biro Keahlian dan Pendaftaran Pengundi mereka, Hishamuddin Yahya supaya menarik balik kenyataannya yang mendakwa nisbah pengundi baru selepas pilihanraya umum ke-12 ialah 1 Melayu kepada 40 bukan Melayu.  Pemuda UMNO juga perlu memohon maaf secara terbuka kepada rakyat kerana kenyataan tersebut bukan sahaja palsu dan menggelirukan, ia juga menimbulkan perasaan kurang senang hati di kalangan masyarakat majmuk Malaysia.

Kenyataan yang berbaur perkauman tersebut terbukti palsu selepas Pengerusi SPR Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof (gambar kiri) menjelaskan kepada Malaysiakini semalam bahawa nisbah yang sebenarnya ialah 2:1, iaitu setiap dua orang Melayu yang mendaftar, hanya seorang bukan Melayu yang turut mendaftar.

'Non-Muslim expert' Rais told to shut up

By G Vinod
KUALA LUMPUR: Information, Communication and Culture minister Rais Yatim's statement that gambling was a way of life for non-Muslims drew fiery responses from two parliamentarians.

DAP secretary-general and Bagan Pinang MP Lim Guan Eng said sarcastically: It seems Rais is now an expert on Chinese affairs.
“Just because a majority of non-Muslims gamble does not mean it is something we embrace as way of life,” said Lim, who is also Penang Chief Minister.

Tenth Malaysia Plan: Long Live NEP – RIP NEM

The signature theme of Datuk Seri Najib Razak on his accession as Prime Minister in April last year was the national transformation of Malaysia, which is anchored on four critical pillars:
  • 1st pillar: “1Malaysia, People First, Performance Now” concept to unite Malaysians.
  • 2nd pillar: the Government Transformation Programme (GTP) to deliver the outcomes defined under the National Key Result Areas (NKRAs).
  • 3rd pillar: the New Economic Model (NEM) resulting from the ambitious Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) to transform Malaysia by 2020 into a developed, competitive and high income economy with inclusivity and sustainability.
  • 4th pillar; the 10th Malaysia Plan 2011-2015 as the first policy operationalisation of both the government and economic transformation programme.

The Penang State Government opposes the RM9.40 toll rate

The Penang state government will call for an all party meeting to mobilize and unite support amongst all Penangites against the proposed RM9.40 toll rate for both the Penang first and second bridge. I’m surprised at Gerakan’s opposition to the increase in toll rate to RM9.40 by 2013 for both bridges when the Cabinet, including Gerakan president Tan Sri Dr. Koh Tsu Koon, has already approved the toll increase.

Does it mean that Barisan National component party do not know what they are doing in Cabinet or the tail does not know what the head is doing. Or is this another example of double faced politics?

Ucapan Ahli Parlimen Kota Kinabalu Dr. Hiew King Cheu

Ucapan atas Rancangan Malaysia Ke-10

Ucapan perbahasan RMK-10 ahli parlimen Sibu

Terima kasih YB Yang DiPertua kerana memberikan peluang kepada saya mengambil bahagian dalam perbahasan RMK10 ini.
1. Rasuah di Malaysia/Sarawak
RMK10 akan memetakan pembangunan negara kita untuk lima tahun yang akan datang.  Statistik kejadian rasuah bagi 10 tahun yang lalu menunjukkan usaha-usaha untuk memerangi rasuah telah gagal dengan teruk.  Gejala rasuah semakin serius dan berleluasa.
Jika rasuah tidak dikawal, Malaysia akan muflis pada tahun 2019, bukan kerana subsidi tetapi rasuah.

Grand plan or grand illusion?

Datuk Seri Najib Razak has said that to ensure Malaysia could compete globally, it needs proper implementation, co-ordination and execution.

He said that to achieve that, all Malaysians must be united and work together while embracing the 1 Malaysia concept, where people are given priority in any of the government’s programmes.

The prime minister said this when opening the Seri Murugan Centre (SMC) at the Vivekananda Secondary School in Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur, yesterday.

“When I took over as the prime minister in April last year, I decided to build a new Malaysia on the spirit of 1 Malaysia where we must be united and be part of a large family and combine the best of each community,” Najib said.

PM 'misled' House on sports betting, DAP wants action

By Syed Jaymal Zahiid

KUALA LUMPUR: DAP wants Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak to be referred to the Rights and Privileges Committee for allegedly misleading Parliament over the sports betting licence issue.

Its MP Tony Pua said Najib, who is also the finance minister, had misled the House when he denied issuing the licence to business magnate Vincent Tan's betting outfit, Ascot Sports Sdn Bhd.

Copies of the proposal made by Berjaya Corporation Bhd, Tan's flagship company, were distributed by Pua to the media in Parliament here as proof that Ascot Sports was given the licence.

Pemujaan Najib: Katak dimasak dalam air panas

PRK Bukit Gantang, Hulu Selangor dan Sibu memperlihatkan sokongan padu pengundi Cina terhadap Pakatan Rakyat.  Malah, sikap pengundi menolak rasuah politik (sogokan wang) seolah-olah memberi tamparan yang sengit terhadap Najib dalam usahanya mendapatkan sokongan pengundi Cina.

Namun demikian, satu fenomena lagi yang jelas muncul di Pandamaran, Hulu Selangor, Sibu hinggalah Johor Bahru kebelakangan ini, iaitu sambutan hangat daripada pengundi Cina terhadap Najib ketika lawatan beliau ke tempat-tempat tersebut.

DAP demands lawyers presence at MACC interrogation

KUALA LUMPUR, May 24 — The DAP today demanded the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) allow lawyers to be present with witnesses during interrogations.

DAP National Chairman Karpal Singh said that witnesses should have access to their lawyers since they could now be hauled up to be questioned beyond office hours.

“Witnesses should have a right to counsel when giving statements (to the MACC).

“Lawyers should be present... simply videoing is not enough,” Karpal told The Malaysian Insider.

The veteran lawyer was responding to a report earlier today which quoted the MACC complaints committee as saying that it had proposed installing CCTV cameras in interrogation areas as part of overhauls to investigation procedures following the death of Teoh Beng Hock last year.

Sarawak for Change – The Sibu Declaration

(Adopted by DAP Sarawak State Committee on 23rd May 2010 In Sibu, Sarawak)

The Sibu Miracle on 16th May 2010 is the beginning of the awakening of Sarawak.

From now on, no one will take us – the people of Sarawak – for granted. One small step in winning Sibu is one big step to winning power in Petrajaya, and a giant step forward to winning power in Putrajaya.Sarawak is rich. It has the largest land mass in Malaysia and an abundance of resources such as timber, land, palm oil, gold, oil and gas.

Putrajaya dream not far-fetched, says Kit Siang

Pakatan Rakyat's victory in the recent Sibu by-election proved that all is not lost for the coalition in its hopes of winning the 13th general election, and forming the next federal government.

In his blog, DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang also said the days Barisan Nasional considered Sabah and Sarawak as its “fixed deposits” are over.

“The BN survived the onslaught of the 2008 political tsunami due to the support from Sabah and Sarawak.
“However, it must have realised now that it cannot take the voters of the two states for granted by disregarding their legitimate grievances and discontent,” he said.

Defeat a bitter pill to swallow

PJ UTARA MP Tony Pua was up early on Monday despite having had only a few hours of sleep after a long day and an even longer night.

But Pua, who had been among the DAP young Turks running the Sibu by-election campaign, was his usual adrenalin-driven self, talking a mile-a-minute, his thoughts often running faster than his words. No Monday blues for him, for sure.

The voter turnout, Pua claimed, was actually about 70%, much higher than the official figure of 59% flashed out on polling day.

“When I heard about the turnout, I was really worried. I thought, mati already,” said Pua.

Keputusan rasmi PRK Sibu: DAP menang, majoriti 398 undi

DAP-PR telah berjaya membuat kejutan di PRK Sibu, apabila diumumkan secara rasmi menang dengan majoriti 398 undi.  DAP-PR meraih 18,845 undi, mengatasi SUPP-BN yang memperolehi 18,447 undi. Calon bebas mencatat 232 undi, sementara terdapat 208 undi rosak, dan 190 undi yang tidak dikembalikan.
Sebelum ini, kemungkinan "perkiraan semula" dan peningkatan undi pos telah mencungkil keraguan sekumpulan penduduk Sibu. Mereka sanggup kehujanan di luar pusat perkiraan undi melaungkan "Kami mahu perubahan!", disusuli kemudian dengan "Tipu! Tipu! Tipu!"
Lebih awal lagi, DAP-PR dikhabarkan memenangi PRK Sibu dengan 665 undi majoriti. Pemimpin Pakatan Rakyat telah mengumumkan kemenangan bagi pihak DAP, sementara pemimpin BN dilaporkan telah meninggalkan dewan. Juga, BN mungkin meminta agar undi dikira semula.

DAP Says May 13 Rally In Kuala Terengganu Insensitive

SIBU, May 12 (Bernama) -- The DAP wants Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and the Malaysian Cabinet to denounce plans by a right wing non-governmental organisation to hold a mammoth rally in Kuala Terengganu Thursday.

DAP advisor Lim Kit Siang said the rally which coincides with the 41st anniversary of the racial riots that happened in the country on May 13, 1969 was extremely insensitive.

"In line with the 1Malaysia concept, the Prime Minister should take a stand against all forms of extremism and intolerance," he told reporters here Wednesday.

Lim said he had sent Open Tweets (on the Internet's Twitter facility) to the Cabinet on the matter this morning and hoped that Najib would have good news for Malaysians on the matter after today's Cabinet meeting.

Sabah DAP wants full details on govt expenditure

By Queville To

KOTA KINABALU: The Sabah state government has been asked to provide a comprehensive report of the projects that have been completed in the state. The state DAP, in making the request, said the current summary report provided by the government was insufficient.

Its vice-chairman Edward Mujie said a detailed breakdown of project costs was necessary in order to ascertain if all the government projects had actually been implemented.
