Sarawak DAP: Abang Jo has marginalised Chinese colleagues in cabinet

Image
It says PBB is following Umno’s style in the peninsula by defying the so-called power-sharing principle of the BN coalition.

PETALING JAYA: It does not matter whether Sarawak gets a Chinese deputy chief minister (DCM), Sarawak DAP chairman Chong Chieng Jen said today. What was of paramount concern to the Chinese community in Sarawak was the development of Chinese education, he said. Chong said at one time, a Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) Chinese representative was made DCM and also held the finance minister’s post. “But there was no annual allocation for Chinese Middle Schools and the United Examination Certificate (UEC) had no standing whatsoever in the state government. “It was only at a time when there was no Chinese DCM and no Chinese finance minister that the state government started to give annual allocations to Chinese Middle Schools and also a certain degree of recognition for UEC,” Chong said in a press statement today. However, Chong said since Chief Minister Abang Joh…

DAP: Oil royalty decision is with cabinet, not Petronas

Image
Sarawak DAP leader Chong Chieng Jen says BN backbencher chairman should have saved his stern words demanding oil royalty for federal ministers, not Petronas.

KUCHING: Sarawak BN backbencher chairman Abdullah Saidol chose the wrong target to issue his demand for a higher oil royalty, says state DAP leader Chong Chieng Jen today.
He said the decision-making body on Sarawak’s oil royalty was the federal cabinet, not the national oil firm. In a statement yesterday, Abdullah warned Petronas it should show a “more convincing level of seriousness when treating Sarawak’s demands” for a higher oil royalty. “There are many remarks, though I’m not sure whether they are true or not, about senior officials in Petronas who ridicule our issues with Petronas. If Petronas continues to behave or act without a sign of respect for us, why should we be too lenient with them?” the Semop assemblyman had stated. Abdullah was expressing support for Sarawak Assistant Housing Minister Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah wh…

没拨款言论 张健仁:叶金来“欺骗威胁”选民

Image
(古晋2日讯)古晋市国会议员兼哥打圣淘沙州议员张健仁揶揄叶金来,10年没长进,今时今日还以“反对党选区没拨款”来欺骗和威胁选民。 针对昨日叶金来发表说“选对议员不愁没拨款”,张健仁表示,国阵执政砂州54年,人民生活越来越辛苦,叶金来身为国阵执政党要员,也曾当过助理部长,还厚颜以“反对党议员没拨款”来欺骗和威胁选民。 简直不知所谓。 张健仁透露,砂州众多地区,古晋市的发展拨款多年来都是最多的。 反而是执政党的强区,许多连基本的道路水供设施都没有。 “多年来,古晋发展拨款冠全砂,而古晋这十多年来也都是由反对党胜出。” “就连叶金来之前的选区7里圣淘沙镇,也是自叶金来于2006年败选之后,才开始发展蓬勃。 10年前的7里圣淘沙镇和10年后的7里圣淘沙镇,发展一日千里,新的商业店的数量简直翻倍,而这些都是发生在7里由行动党胜选之后的。” 张健仁指出,如今7里镇的最大问题是,巴达旺市议会在罗克强做主席的领导下,赶不上7里的发展,结果连地区上最基本的交通问题,也搞到一团糟。 这不是人民的错,也非代议士的错,纯粹是当地的地方政府(市议会)的无能。 皆因,人民还门牌税给市议会,但市议会连基本的交通、沟渠和道路维修问题都无法妥善管理。 张氏指出,如果叶金来的那套“反对党选区没拨款”言论能够成功欺骗到人民的话,11年前2006年,他就不会输掉哥打圣淘沙州议席了。 岂料,11年后的今天,他还老调重弹,用那11年前就已失效的“发展论”来企图蒙骗如今资讯和民主意识更加发达的古晋选民。 张健仁指出,砂州人民今天所面对最大的问题是,马来西亚和砂州经济被国阵搞到一团糟,人民的生活越来越辛苦,工资赶不上生活费的暴涨,甚至搞到如今,大学毕业生如果家里没有一点底,他们的工资连要买一间排屋都买不起。 “城市人民面对的问题不是没有发展拨款,而是,政府的发展拨款没有妥善的被使用。 政府拨款的下放,因为贪污滥权和浪费,没有真正惠及广大的人民,没有被用在减轻人民生活负担的正确用途上。” 他举例,在砂州,那些真正能够惠及人民的工程如,柏特拉再也医院工程和斯里阿曼医院工程都被列入“生病”工程;古晋中央医院的电梯、多层停车场工程,更是只听楼梯响,不见人下楼;给予退休政府公务员免费药物的便利也被取消,宣布给予华小5000万令吉的拨款,也讲了两年多却没下文。 张氏说,国阵和纳吉的恋权和无赖已证明,如今,强大的反对党是不…

‘Shariah amendment to be revived when Umno is stronger’

Image
Sarawak rep Chong Chieng Jen says Umno’s 'brain-washing' programme, especially in the Borneo state, will turn more Muslims into agreeing to hudud law in Malaysia.

PETALING JAYA: Sarawak DAP chairman Chong Chieng Jen has cautioned that the move to amend shariah law in Malaysia may be revived within the next 15 years after Umno is powerful enough to impose it.
The Kota Sentosa assemblyman said despite the announcement by prime minister and Umno president Najib Razak that the government would not take over and table a private member’s bill on the matter, the Umno-led administration will likely proceed with it when the party can withstand political opposition to such a move. He said the Umno-led Barisan Nasional (BN) ran the risk of losing Sarawak and Sabah in the next general election if it had gone ahead with the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965, or Act 355. “This is a real risk that Najib cannot afford to take,” Chong said in a statement yesterday. “As a result, t…

RUU355 will always be a threat to our Secular Constitution so long as UMNO remains in Power

The 2-year episode of RUU355Amendment Bill (Hudud Bill) has exposed the frailty of secularism under our Federal Constitution. It has also exposed the danger of having an over-powerful UMNO who is able to play around with the secularism enshrined in our Constitution based solely on its political strategic consideration. 
Before Najib declared 2 nights ago that the Government will not adopt Hadi’s Hudud Bill, he has openly announced that the Government will adopt Hadi’s Bill as the Government Bill and tabled it in Parliament. Ahmad Zahid had also repeated such stand.
Then, why the U-turn on the part of Najib and Ahmad Zahid on this issue two nights ago? 
Basically, it is based upon political strategic consideration of UMNO and not about defending the Constitution. Otherwise, Najib would not have made the earlier contradictory announcement.
At present, PAS has only 14 MPs and UMNO 86. The 2 of them do not have more than 50% of the MPs in Parliament. Whether the other BN MPs will support the…

巫统执政,RUU355伊刑法课题还会重现

RUU355修正法案的事件,暴露我国联邦宪法的脆弱。 同时,它也再次的显示,一党独大的可怕,巫统可以纯粹的以其政治利益为考量,决定是否改变我国世俗国的宪法体制。

在纳吉前晚正式宣布政府不会接纳哈迪的RUU355修正法案为政府法案之前,他曾在巫统大会宣布政府将接纳该法案,并获得巫统大会的全力支持。副首相阿末扎希也曾数次公开表示,国阵政府将接纳哈迪的RUU355修正法案为政府法案,向国会提呈并寻求通过。

巫统因政治考量拒伊刑法

纳吉之所以会改变初衷,于前晚议决不接纳RUU355法案,最主要的原因是政治考量,而不是为了捍卫宪法世俗国体制的精神。若巫统是真的有捍卫我国宪法世俗体制的考量,纳吉也不会在之前的巫统大会上宣布要接纳该法案为政府法案。

巫统目前有86位国会议员,伊党则只有14位国会议员,两者加起来总共只有100位国会议员,不足以成为国会222国会议员中过半的议席。 若该法案真的被接纳为政府法案,国阵其他成员党的议员未必会全数跟着巫统的指示。 

就算国阵其他成员的的议员们会被逼支持通过这法案,但在即将到来的国选中,国阵极大可能会因为通过这法案而失去砂拉越和沙巴大部份人民的支持,进而失去联邦政权。

RUU355被搁置,只是巫统权宜之计

在这重重的政治因素考量下,纳吉最终改变初衷,放弃接纳RUU355法案为政府法案。 但,这决定并非永久性的决定,而只是暂时性的权宜之计。

以巫统一贯操控选区划分的手段,巫统在国阵内部的国会议席比例只会在每一次的选区划分中增加。 而国阵其他的成员党都不敢针对这不公平的选区划分,拂巫统的意愿。 在这不公平的选区划分政策下,巫统的势力只会每天的膨胀。 

可预见的,再过5年、10年或15年,巫统还是会再次的挑起这个RUU355伊刑法的课题。到时,巫统的势力极可能不需再看国阵其他成员党议员的意愿了。这是全马人民所处的隐忧。

只2政党支持伊刑法:巫统和伊党

纵观马来西亚政坛,只有两个政党支持RUU355修正法案伊刑法,即,伊党和巫统。伊党是以伊斯兰教义治国为理念的政党,巫统则是以种族主义(马来人至上)为治国理念的政党。 一个是供奉神权政治,另一个则是奉行种族政治。 

因此,RUU355伊刑法也正是这两个政党巩固它们政治势力的工具。 这两个政党,只要其中一个壮大,马来西亚的世俗宪制的体系就会面对极大的威胁。

伊党势弱,今后无作为

如今,RUU355伊刑法事件的演变,伊斯兰党一分为…
