DAP: Oil royalty decision is with cabinet, not Petronas

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

(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’

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…
