KUCHING: Sarawak DAP has called on those who cared for the state and country to attend the Bersih 4 rally on Aug 29 and 30.
Its chairman, Chong Chieng Jen, said the two-day rally would serve as a `wake-up call’ to Umno and the BN in general.
“As it is now, Umno and BN are beyond redemption, and many people are aware that in order to save our country, we need change,” he told a press conference here yesterday.
Thus, the purpose of Bersih 4 was to get the people to come together and push for reforms and change for the country, he claimed.
Chong, who is also Bandar Kuching MP and Kota Sentosa assemblyman, said although previous Bersih rallies in Peninsular Malaysia had brought about political tsunamis and enabled the opposition to deny the BN a two-third majority in Parliament and formed governments in some states, Sarawak still remained the ‘fixed deposit state’ of the BN.
Chong said the Bersih 4 rally this weekend would not bring about the immediate resignation of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak but would form great pressure on BN and Umno and bring about the awakening of those who do not care about politics and help in the furtherance of democracy in the state.
Chong pointed out that the more the number of people at the two-day rally, the bigger the effect would be.
“It is only when there is sufficient awakening of the people in Sarawak that will put pressure on Umno. Otherwise, they are in their comfort zone thinking that Sarawak will always support BN as the government.”
For those who wish to participate in the Bersih 4 rally with the DAP, Chong said the gathering point for the party would be in front of Hilton Kuching at 2pm on Aug 29.
“We will gather in front of the hotel before we march towards Song Kheng Hai ground, which is the final point of gathering for the rally.”

砂不是国阵定存州,火箭吁全民出席BERSIH4

砂州民主行动党全力支持净选盟“BERSIH 4”所提出的4个诉求,即:
1. 干净选举
2. 干净政府
3. 异议权力
4. 拯救经济
5. 巩固议会民主


无可否认,目前马来西亚人民所面对的最大问题就是经济压力。 GST的实施、马币贬值、外汇流失、百货通胀和经济缓慢,使到大众都喘不过气来。 更糟糕的是,许多人都对马来西亚失去希望。 砂拉越是马来西亚的一份子,马来西亚经济破产,砂州也不能独善其身。


最终,还是那句话,“大家可以失望,但却不可绝望”。


解决经济问题,从肃贪开始


纵观今天马来西亚经济的困境,基本上就是贪污、腐败和权力集中的后果。 因此,要解救马来西亚和砂拉越,就必须在制度上进行改革肃贪。


净选盟所提出的10大制度上的改革,是解救砂州和马来西亚的治根良策:


干净选举
1. 公平的选举制度与程序
2. 选委会应直接向国会负责


干净政府
1. 首相不得兼任财长;
2. 国会改革,使国会不会继续成为行政的橡胶印
3. 总检察长与律政司应该分成两职;
4. 反贪污委员会应直接成向国会负责;
5. 落实《资讯自由法令》,赋予人民“知”的权力;
6. 部长与政府高官公告财产。


异议权力
1. 废除/修改压迫性法令;
2. 设立“独立警察投诉与过失委员会”(IPCMC)。


唯有落实这10大制度改革,才能拯救马来西亚的经济和国运。但是,国阵政府完全没有意愿要落实这些改革。反之,纳吉最近的施政和手段,完全与这些改革背道而驰。


BERSIH4游行的意义


国家需要改革。 目前,许多人民都知道这事实。但是,同时,也有许多人民不了解,还是继续被执政者蒙骗。“BERSIH4”游行的意义就是,汇集全部了解国情的人民力量,唤醒那些还不了解实况的民众,一起推动国家的改革。


今天的国阵和巫统,已经走到无可救药的地步了。 唯有换政府,国家才有希望。在西马,BERSIH 1、2和3之后,带动了整个西马的政治改革浪潮,使在野党成功否决国阵国会2/3的霸权,在一些州属更成为州执政党。 惜,砂州仍旧成为国阵的定存州,无法实现全国改朝换代的愿景。


大家必须清楚的一点,这“BERSIH4”的游行不会使纳吉立刻下台。 但是,它可对整体国阵和巫统造成压力,加速巫统分裂,更重要的是,它可协助唤醒那些还对政治不了解,不关心的民众,对砂州的民主运动有很大的帮助。 越多人出席,唤醒大众的效应就越大。 因此,我们呼吁大家出席今次29日和30日的BERSIH4的集会。 行动党的国州议员和州领袖也将出席这两天的集会。

Adenan’s insistence to sell the 267-acre MJC land at the price of RM115 million only will be a permanent stigma of his government.

Adenan’s insistence to sell the 267-acre MJC land at the price of RM115 million only will be a permanent stigma of his government.
He may think that he has “checkmated” me by insisting that I first disclose the name of the intended purchaser who has proposed to purchase the land for RM620 million before he even consider the development plan submitted by the said intended purchaser.
However, the general public views it differently.
All Sarawakian are aware of the usual Barisan Nasional’s oppressive tactic against DAP’s supporters and sympathisers, especially when it comes to businessmen and property developers.
As such, the intended purchaser who submitted the proposal to buy the land at the price of RM620 million has insisted that I must not disclose his name unless Adenan shows some form of goodwill and sincerity by approving in principle the plan that he proposed.
By merely indicating an approval in principle and accepting the intended purchaser’s offer, the State Government will get an additional RM505 million. Is that too much to ask of Adenan for an additional RM505 million revenue for the State Government?
Whatever excuses that Adenan may give, ultimately, the key issue is clear.
It is a matter of selling the 267 acres of State land at the price of RM115 million or RM620 million and Adenan chose to sell it at RM115 million only. Why did he do that? It does not make logical sense. Is he subject to control by someone higher?
At the end of the day, the people of Sarawak lost RM505 million which becomes the profits of the 2 shareholders of Standard Parade Development Sdn Bhd, the BN cronies.
Clearly, Adenan cannot exonerate himself by claiming that the deal was entered into by the previous Administration. The Sale and Purchase Agreement was signed by the Government on 8-3-2014 which is after he became the Chief Minister of Sarawak.
This land deal is a rip-off on the people of Sarawak and Adenan is condoning such rip-off to happen right under his nose. This will go down record of Sarawak history as a stigma in Adenan’s government.
Meanwhile, I will continue to exert pressure on the MACC to expedite the investigation of the matter.

阿德南让砂人民失去5亿500万令吉

民主行动党古晋市国会议员兼哥打圣淘沙州议员张健仁表示,“1亿1500万令吉贱卖石角267英亩政府地”的事件,将是阿德南掌首长职的一个“污点”。 因为,它使砂州人民失去5亿500万令吉。
在本周一的砂州州议会,阿德南坚持要张氏先透露有关那位愿出价6亿2000万令吉购买该片政府地的买家身份,才考虑是否批准其所提呈的发展计划。
张健仁坚持,阿德南至少必须先原则上批准该发展计划,先展示有诚意考虑接受该买家的发展计划,该买家才愿意透露它的身份。
“砂国阵政府是出了名压迫在野党支持者的政府。 在砂州,尤其是那些大型的发展商,更不敢公开的支持在野党,惧怕被政府算账。 因此,这位愿出价6亿2000万令吉买该片地的买家特别声明,除非阿德南有做出原则上的批准该发展图,展示其诚意,不然他不愿透露他的身份。”
“所有,你阿德南打死我,我也不会透露他的身份,除非你阿德南先展示诚意,原则上批准该发展图先。”
张健仁质问阿德南为何如此在意要先知道谁是买家,而却不愿意表示是否会考虑该份已提呈给他的发展图。
“难道要阿德南原则上先批准那个发展图如此难? 而且,这涉及州政府多赚5亿500令吉收入的事项,难道阿德南连一个基本的诚意都无法展示吗? 如果州政府连这基本的合作和诚意都没有,又有谁放心投资几十亿令吉的发展?”
张氏说,不论阿德南如何狡辩,整个事件的重点就是,阿德南宁可以1亿1500万令吉的价格贱卖这267英亩的政府地给国阵朋党公司(Standard Parade Development有限公司),也不接受他人以6亿2000万令吉的价格买同一片地。 当然,损失的不是他个人,而是砂州政府,也既是砂州人民。
张氏也说,对于这起贱卖政府地的舞弊,阿德南不能推卸责任。 因为,该份贱卖土地的合约,是于2014年3月8日才签署的。 当时,阿德南已经上任为砂州首长了。 除非阿德南承认,他背后还有人在操控他的决定。
“这贱卖政府地的交易也暴露,阿德南还是欠缺政治决心施廉政。”
张健仁强调,这弊案是在剥削砂州人民。 5亿500令吉可以为砂州进行许多建设惠及全民,不应该被几个朋党如此的瓜分和吞食。 因此,虽然砂州政府允许此弊案,行动党还是会继续向反贪污委员会施压,以尽快调查此案。

Sarawak Continues to be Marginalised under 11th Malaysia Plan Despite Adenan’s Promises

18-8-2015

The 11th Malaysia Plan (11MP) tabled by Adenan Satem is no difference from the 10th Malaysia Plan (10MP) in terms of allocation of fund for Sarawak.
In yesterday Adenan’s speech in Sarawak DUN, he informed DUN that the total allocation of fund by the Federal Government for Sarawak under the 10MP was RM18.5 billion.
“ This allocation is made up of Federal Fund totalling RM18.8 billion to implement 1,529 projects and State Fund of RM18.5 billion to implement 1,114 projects.”
(p.9, 3rd para of Hansard)
He also informed Sarawak DUN that the total allocation of Federal Fund for Sarawak under the 11MP will be RM20 billion.
“ The approved allocation for the State Eleventh Malaysia is RM20 billion to implement 915 projects. So, our contribution is not very far from what we ask from the Federal Government. I hope they will give us as much as we will give. Not give less than what we want to spend ourselves on Eleventh Malaysia Plan.”
(p.21, 1st para of Hansard)
10th Malaysia Plan(2011 – 2015)
Total Federal allocation for Sarawak --RM18.8 billion
Average annual Federal Allocation for Sarawak --RM3.76 billion
11th Malaysia Plan (2016 – 2020)
Total Federal allocation for Sarawak --RM20 billion
Average annual Federal Allocation for Sarawak --RM4 billion
All the allocation under the Malaysia Plans are allocated through the annual government Budget presented in Parliament. As the allocation set for Sarawak under the 10MP is 18.8 billion, therefore, on average, Sarawak will be getting about RM3.76 billion a year over the period of 5 years under the 10MP.
For the past 5 years, the annual Development Expenditure under the Federal Government’s Budget is about RM50 billion. Sarawak is only getting about RM3.76 billion each year which is only a meagre 7.5% of the Federal Government’s Development Expenditure budget.
Despite Adenan’s repeated claim that he will not allow the Federal Government to continue marginalise Sarawak, the figure in the 11MP speaks otherwise.
Even assuming the Federal Government honours the pledges under the 11MP, which is RM4 billion per year, and that the Development Expenditure maintains at RM50 billion per year without any increment, Sarawak will be getting only 8% of the Federal Development Expenditure.
With the land mass of Sarawak constituting more than 1/3rd of Malaysia land mass, how can Adenan expect this 8% Development Expenditure to enable Sarawak to catch up with the level of development in West Malaysia?
Furthermore, given the inflation rate, the real value of RM20 billion for year 2016 – 2020 is well below the real value of RM18.8 billion for the year 2011 – 2015.
With such figures, for Adenan to claim that the Federal Government is now placing more importance in Sarawak, he is either being plain naïve or trying to fool the people of Sarawak.
In fact it is an irony that despite speaking out so strongly against “marginalisation of Sarawak”, Adenan himself tabled the 11MP which marginalise Sarawak.
Sarawak has been taken for a ride by the Barisan Nasional Government for more than 52 years and the 11MP is no difference from the previous 10 Malaysia Plans. The marginalisation will continue and Sarawak will continue to be backward so long as BN continues to be the government.
Therefore, in the interest of Sarawak, Sarawak BN must withdraw from the National BN. At present, Sarawak BN has the number to tilt the balance of power at Federal level and UMNO is also at its weakest in the nation’s history, it is the best time for Adenan to make the move.
Therefore, I call upon Adenan to be frank with the people of Sarawak and not try to sweet-talk his way out of the reality. Otherwise, he is a just an accomplice to such marginalisation.

国阵在《第11大马计划》下,继续亏待和边缘化砂州发展。

民主行动党古晋市国会议员兼哥打圣淘沙州议员张健仁抨击国阵在《第11大马计划》下,继续亏待和边缘化砂州发展。


张健仁在今日的文告中指出,阿德南于昨日州议会提呈《第11大马计划》时向州议会报告,在《第10大马计划》下,联邦总共拨给砂州185亿令吉的拨款。 同时,阿德南也说,在《第11大马计划》下,联邦拨给砂州的总拨款将是200亿令吉。

张氏说,阿德南在州议会的发表,全部都清清楚楚的记录在州议会当天的会议记录第9页和第21页。 以下是这两个大马计划的数据比较:

第10大马计划(2011 – 2015)
联邦拨给砂州的总拨款--185亿令吉
联邦平均每年拨给砂州的拨款--37亿6000万令吉

第11大马计划(2016 – 2020)
联邦拨给砂州的总拨款 -- 200亿令吉
联邦平均每年拨给砂州的拨款 -- 40亿令吉

张氏指出,大马计划是一个5年发展蓝图。 它几乎下的拨款,是经由每年国会所通过的财政预算案中所拨出来的。 因此,在《第10大马计划》下砂州的拨款既已设在185亿令吉,那平均每年财政预算案将拨出37.6亿令吉,5年总数185亿令吉。

他说,在过去的5年,联邦政府每年财政预算案的“发展开支”大约是500亿令吉,而砂拉越每年只得到大约37.6亿令吉的拨款款额,只是占了联邦财政预算案“发展开支”的7.5%而已。

张健仁揶揄,阿德南上任以后,频频公开指责联邦政府过去52年亏待砂州,也不断的强调他不会允许联邦政府继续的亏待和边缘化砂州,但是,阿德南昨天自己所提呈的《第11大马计划》里的数字却显示,砂拉越今后5年,还是会继续的被联邦政府边缘化和亏待。

张氏说,根据阿德南在州议会的报告,在《第11大马计划下》(2016 – 2020年),砂州将得到总数约200亿令吉的发展拨款

“这意味着,从2016年 – 2020年这5年的期间,砂州每年的发展拨款将是大约40亿令吉。 就算联邦政府在这5年期间的发展开支保持在500亿令吉左右(通常是每年增加的),40亿令吉只不过是500亿令吉的8%而已。”

张氏说,砂拉越的面积占了马来西亚总面积的1/3以上,这每年区区8%的‘发展开支’的拨款,又如何能使到砂州的发展追上西马? 更何况,在百货通胀的情况下,《第11大马计划》期间(即,2016年 – 2020年)的40亿令吉的实质价值,远不如《第10大马计划》期间(即,2011年 – 2015年)的37.6亿令吉的实质价值。

“最近,阿德南表现的英勇十足,不断的发表什么‘我们等了52年了,不能再等了’、‘西马有什么砂拉越也要有’这类的言论,但是,非常讽刺的是,经由他亲自在砂州州议会所提呈的《第11大马计划》,里面的拨款数字证明,砂州还是被国阵政府亏待和边缘化。”

张健仁奉劝阿德南,不论他在砂州人民面前,针对联邦政府发表了多么强硬的言论,最终,因为还是国阵执政,砂州终究还是逃不掉“被联邦政府边缘化和亏待”的命运。

张氏说,如果阿德南认为每年联邦政府只拨了8%的‘发展开支’给砂州不是一种“亏待”或“边缘化”砂州,那他实在是太天真,不然就是企图蒙骗砂州人民。

“事实胜于雄辩,从《第一大马计划》到昨天阿德南自己提呈的《第11大马计划》的数据证明,国阵过去边缘化砂州,今后还是会继续的边缘化砂州。 无论阿德南的话讲得多么好听,只要一天还是国阵执政马来西亚,边缘化和亏待砂州的政策还是会延续下去。”

张氏说,为了砂州人民的权益,砂国阵必须退出国阵。 目前是最佳的时机,因为砂国阵的国会议员人数是25位,若退出国阵,国阵将无法在国会掌握超过50%的人数。 更何况,目前也是巫统最脆弱的时刻。 只要阿德南一声令下砂国阵退出国阵,立刻就换政府了,也可以立刻终结国阵政府剥削和亏待砂州52年的政策。

张健仁呼吁阿德南,身为砂州首长,阿德南应好好把握这个时机,而不是把一份边缘化砂州的《第11大马计划》粉饰成对砂州有利的发展计划。

张健仁:助调查工作 MJC买地资料呈反贪会

转载自《诗华日报》
砂行动党主席张健仁国州议员(中)在马来西亚反贪污委员会砂州总部发言﹐左为砂行动党浮罗岸区州议员黄庆伟、右则为砂行动党朋岭区州议员杨薇讳。
(本报古晋12日讯)砂行动党主席张健仁国州议员今日到访马来西亚反贪污委员会砂州总部﹐以透过为当局提供额外资料的途径﹐让当局能够就石角新市镇对面之267英亩州政府土地买卖事件展开多角度的调查工作。
张健仁今早于马来西亚反贪污委员会砂州总部发言时说﹐其今日到访马来西亚反污委员会砂州总部﹐乃旨在为当局提供额外的资料。他披露﹐根据其所获得的资料﹐该片面积达267英亩的州政府土地﹐原本已经连同石角新市镇所处于的地段一起批给了一家官联公司。
“该家官联公司的主要持有人为伊斯兰福利理事会及砂基金局等单位﹐所以相关土地的发展工作﹐原来能够为有关单位带来更好的收入﹐并有利相关单位惠及人民及学子。”
最终转让私人公司
他感到不解的是﹐为何该片原来已经批给相关官联公司的州政府土地﹐最终却又另外转让给一家私人公司。
“另外﹐在有关的土地转让课题上﹐当局是否有依照法律行事﹐并办好所有相关的手续﹖”
他还置疑说﹐砂州政府后来以低廉价格将州政府土地转让给私人公司﹐复要求有关公司为某协会兴建大厦一事﹐又是否涉及了利益冲突﹖
他表示﹐基于相关理由﹐其决定在今日走访马来西亚反污委员会砂州总部﹐以提交有关的额外资料﹐进而方便当局展开多角度的调查工作。
