A Formal Letter Will Be Sent To Datuk Fadillah Yusof Next Week To Seek Federal Government Approval For The 3rd Bridge(e/c)

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Komtar, George Town On 22.5.2016.

A Formal Letter Will Be Sent To Datuk Fadillah Yusof Next Week To Seek Federal Government Approval For The 3rd Bridge From Gurney Drive On The Island To Bagan Ajam On The Mainland So That The State Government Can Consider Building A Toll-Free Bridge.

A formal letter will be sent to Datuk Fadillah Yusof next week to seek federal government approval for the 3rd bridge, from Gurney Drive on the island to Bagan Ajam on the mainland, so that the state government can consider building a toll-free bridge. During the Penang state Assembly meeting on Friday I had said that it would be difficult to get approval from the Federal government to allow the state government to build the 3rd bridge, when even the Prime Minister’s triple promises to build the LRT on Penang island remained unfulfilled.

The RM50 billion 1MDB scandal can not be covered up unless the Federal government comes clean (e/m/c)

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng at the Penang State Assembly On 17 May 2016

The RM50 billion 1MDB scandal can not be covered up unless the Federal government comes clean by :

-making public the Auditor-General’s Report on the scandal,
-tabulating the cost of the negative impact of the first debt default by a government entity last month and early this month of USD 50 million in interest payments; and
-justify why no action is taken against those responsible by the Malaysian authorities for such a huge scandal when arrests and charges are made by overseas countries against those responsible for this huge scandal.

What is the Malaysian government hiding or trying to cover up by refusing to make the Auditor-General’s report public? Continue reading ‘The RM50 billion 1MDB scandal can not be covered up unless the Federal government comes clean (e/m/c)’

DAP congratulates Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satm on his big win in the Sarawak elections yesterday.(e/c)

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister And DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 8.5.2016.

DAP congratulates Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem on his big win in the Sarawak elections yesterday. DAP hopes that he can fulfil his promises of a Sarawak that is prosperous and fair to all regardless of race and religion, restore economic rights and political autonomy that will respect the rights, honour and dignity of Sarawakians.

DAP thanks all voters who supported the party and accepts the results of the Sarawak state elections. DAP’s loss of 5 state seats out of the previous 12 seats was due to the personal popularity of Tan Sri Adenan. Tan Sri Adenan’s personal popularity overcame whatever unease at the barring of opposition leaders from Peninsular Malaysia into Sarawak and the extensive use of money politics.

DAP regrets the harsh and extremist political rhetoric of PAS President Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang in Kuching(e/c)

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister And DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 5.5.2016.

DAP regrets the harsh and extremist political rhetoric of PAS President Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang in Kuching that non-Muslim bumiputeras or a Chinese can not be allowed to rule Sarawak. Hadi is clearly anti non-Muslim when he said that non-Muslim bumiputeras and Chinese can be leaders but both Sabah and Sarawak must be ruled by a Muslim bumiputera.

DAP has never asked that the Sarawak Chief Minister be Chinese, which is puzzling why Hadi is raising the racial bogey of a Chinese Sarawak Chief Minister to frighten voters. However there is no reason why a bumiputera, whether Muslim or non-Muslim, can not be a Sarawak Chief Minister. DAP accepts the reality that the Malaysian Prime Minister must be Malay to reflect that a majority of the population is Malay. Why not accept that a non-Muslim bumiputera can also be a Chief Minister of Sarawak, when they form a majority of the population? Continue reading ‘DAP regrets the harsh and extremist political rhetoric of PAS President Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang in Kuching(e/c)’

面对砂拉越选举这大好时机,马华民政的部长廖中莱及马袖强浩浩荡荡跟着巫统来到砂拉越开内阁会议,却没人敢趁机在内阁会议上直接要求首相承认独中统考文凭,让人如何期待选后的马华民政会有所作为呢?

槟州首席部长兼民主行动党秘书长林冠英于2016年5月5日在槟城乔治市光大发表的声明:

以国阵的传统,大选是万能的,大选前的谈判条件是最容易的,大选前什么要求都会立刻获得实践(看看过去一周来首相纳吉在砂拉越所拨出的款项),为什么廖中莱和马袖强却不敢趁这个黄金时机代表华社提出要联邦政府承认统考的要求呢?

砂州选举的竞选期已经倒数2天,迄今砂州政府还无法证明有哪一位独中生被录取当公务员,而砂拉越所谓“承认统考”其实附带SPM马来文需优等的条件,不是直接承认。 Continue reading ‘面对砂拉越选举这大好时机,马华民政的部长廖中莱及马袖强浩浩荡荡跟着巫统来到砂拉越开内阁会议,却没人敢趁机在内阁会议上直接要求首相承认独中统考文凭,让人如何期待选后的马华民政会有所作为呢?’

Tan Sri Adenan Satem Has Returned The Favour To Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak For Appointing Him As Sarawak Chief Minister By Supporting The GST And Accepting That Oil Royalties For Sarawak Will Not Be Increased From 5% To 20%.(e/c)

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister And DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 5.5.2016.

Tan Sri Adenan Satem Has Returned The Favour To Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak For Appointing Him As Sarawak Chief Minister By Supporting The GST And Accepting That Oil Royalties For Sarawak Will Not Be Increased From 5% To 20%.

BN’s claims that voting for ‘Team Adenan’ is to defend Sarawak rights & autonomy clearly a myth following Multimedia And Communications Minister Salleh Said Keruak’s admission that Tan Sri Adenan is appointed as Sarawak Chief Mnister by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak. If that is the case then Tan Sri Adenan is beholden to the Prime Minister more than to anyone and he ‘owes’ the Prime Minister for his appointment as Sarawak Chief Minister.

Penang State Government Pays RM20 Million Annually To The Federal Government When The Two Local Councils Of Majlis Bandaraya Pulau Pinang(MBPP) And Majlis Perbandaran Seberang Perai(MPSP) Absorbs Cost Of GST On the People’s Behalf.(e/m/c)

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister And DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng Released In Kuching/Kuala Lumpur On 4 May 2016.

The Penang state government pays RM20 million annually to the federal government when the two local councils of Majlis Bandaraya Pulau Pinang(MBPP) and Majlis Perbandaran Seberang Perai(MPSP) absorbs cost of GST on the people’s behalf. On my last day before being forced by Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem to leave, I am shocked that Tan Sri Adenan has issued a wild and baseless challenge to me to abolish GST in Penang to prove my claims that DAP would abolish GST in Sarawak if DAP wins in the Sarawak elections on 7 May 2016.

I have never made such a claim on behalf of the DAP. I wish to challenge Tan Sri Adenan to show proof that I had ever said that DAP would abolish GST in Sarawak if we win the Sarawak state elections. If he can not show proof, Tan Sri Adenan has shown that he is not trustworthy, when he is willing to abuse his powers to prevent opposition leaders from Peninsular Malaysia to enter Sarawak and is now making false claims.

Without The 1MDB 50 Billion Scandal, There Is No Need For The GST And The Minimum Wage Can Be Increased To RM1,200 Monthly To Be Applied Equally To Both Peninsular Malaysia As Well As Sabah & Sarawak.(That Is Not Applicable To Foreign Workers)(e/m/c)

May Day Message By DAP secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 30.4.2016.

DAP calls for the minimum wage to be increased to RM1,200 monthly to be applied equally to both Peninsular Malaysia as well as Sabah and Sarawak. However foreign workers should not benefit from this ruling for at least 5 years to allow local employers, especially Small and Medium entreprises (SMEs), time to adjust.

With the rising cost of living and the extra costs posed by the implementation of GST, the present minimum wage of RM1,000 for Peninsular Malaysia and RM920 for Labuan, Sabah and Sarawak is too low. If government servants’ salary can also be adjusted to be higher than RM1,200 monthly, there is no reason why workers in the private sector cannot benefit.

砂拉越政府,虽然口口声声说承认独中统考文凭,可是独中生在报考独中统考之余,还是得报考SPM。 为什么要让独中生那么累?

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2016年4月29日在吉隆坡发表声明:

我们对于马华和民政党内阁部长在独中统考课题上沉寂下来感到纳闷。魏家祥究竟有没有在最近几次的内阁会议提及独中统考课题?马华和民政党在国阵里协商了那么多年,为什么如今国阵政府在承认独中统考方面还是难产?

此外,砂拉越州政府虽然大事公布“承认独中统考文凭”,但是条件是必须拥有SPM马来文科优等。这种附带条件的“承认”,意味着独中生还是必须考取两种考试:统考文凭与SPM,才能申请成为砂拉越公务员。对独中生而言是双重考试的负担,这不是实质意义上的“承认”,简直就是不承认。 Continue reading ‘砂拉越政府,虽然口口声声说承认独中统考文凭,可是独中生在报考独中统考之余,还是得报考SPM。 为什么要让独中生那么累?’

Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan Is So Desperate To Chicken Out Of His Own Debate Challenge, That He Wants Me To Sue Him For Defamation So That He Can Use The Excuse Of Sub-Judice As The Reason For Not Debating Me.(e/m/c)

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Penang On 25.4.2016.

Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan is so desperate to chicken out of his own debate challenge, that he is now issuing a new challenge me to sue him in court for defamation. Rahman knows that if I sue him for defamation then he can easily use the excuse of sub-judice as the reason for not debating me.

We cannot forget that the RM2.6 billion donation scandal of the Prime Minister was declared sub judice merely because of a judicial review filed in court by the Bar Council. As a result of the RM2.6 billion donation scandal was declared sub-judice by the Parliamentary Speaker and no questions were allowed to be raised in Parliament.
