Ucapan Setiausaha-Agung DAP Dan Ahli Parlimen Bagan Lim Guan Eng Semasa Menentang Rang Undang-undang Perhimpunan Aman di Dewan Rakyat Pada 29.11.2011.

Menentang Rang Undang-undang Perhimpunan “Haram” Yang Akan Mengharamkan Hak Berhimpun, Memberikan Kuasa Mutlak Kepada Polis Yang Memihak Kepada BN Untuk Membenarkannya Atau Tidak Dan Menghakis Lagi Hak Asasi Manusia Di Malaysia.

Tuan yang dipertua,

Di ambang Hari Malaysia yang ke-48 pada 15 September 2011, YAB Perdana Menteri telah mengumumkan bahawa Kerajaan akan mengkaji semula Seksyen 27 Akta Polis untuk menyelaraskannya dengan Artikel 10 Perlembagaan Persekutuan yang menjamin kebebasan rakyat untuk “berhimpun secara aman dan dengan tidak bersenjata”, dan supaya mematuhi norma-norma antarabangsa.

Malangnya, tidak disangka bahawa negara-negara “antarabangsa” yang dirujuk beliau merupakan negara-negara Zimbabwe dan Myanmar.

Challenge Nor Mohamed Yakcop to a public debate on whether the extension of the concession period for Penang Bridge by 17 years (en/bm/cn)

Challenges Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop To A Public Debate Whether The Extension Of The Concession Period For Penang Bridge By 17 Years And Butterworth-Kulim Expressway (BKE) By 11 Years In Exchange For A Toll Hike Freeze For 5 Years Benefits Penangites and Malaysians.

I wish to challenge Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop to a public debate on whether the extension of the concession period for Penang Bridge by 17 years and BKE by 11 years, in exchange for a freeze on on toll hike for 5 years on 5 highways including the NSE, benefits Penangites and Malaysians.

Tan Sri Nor attacked me in the New Straits Times today for practicing double-standards in opposing the revised deals that will defer toll fare hike for 5 years until 2016. I fail to see how this revision deal benefited the people and how I can be practicing double-standards when I am taking the principled stand in opposing toll operators benefiting hugely at the people’s expense.

Utusan Awal Muharam

Mencadangkan Menaikkan Bayaran Kepada RM200 Dan Bukan RM100 One-Off Untuk Program Anak Emas Untuk Semua Bayi Kelahiran Pulau Pinang Mulai 1 Januari 2011.

Kerajaan negeri Pulau Pinang ingin mengucapkan Salam Maal Hijrah kepada semua umat Islam yang meraikan 1 Muharram 1433H. Sempena perayaan Awal Muharam 1433H, saya akan mencadangkan kepada mesyuarat EXCO pada minggu depan agar bayaran program anak emas Pulau Pinang dinaikkan kepada RM 200 one-off daripada bayaran asal RM 100.

Kejayaan Program Penghargaan Warga Emas RM 100 setiap tahun dan RM 1,000 “one-off” urusan jenazah kepada si waris demi mengenang jasa bakti sumbangan warganegara yang melebihi 60 tahun kepada pembangunan negeri, telah menyebabkan beberapa pihak mencadangkan bahawa kerajaan negeri menimbang pula golongan yang baru lahir.

Muhyiddin’s Proud Defence Of UMNO’s Racist Agenda And He Is Malay First And Malaysian Second Only Proves That 1Malaysia Is An Empty Slogan Designed To Win Votes And Rapidly Discarded After The Next General Elections.

UMNO Deputy President Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s proud defence of UMO’s racist agenda and that he is Malay First and Malaysian second only proves that 1Malaysia is an empty slogan designed to win votes and rapidly discarded after the next general elections. What is surprising is that Muhyiddin does not consider illogical or inconsistent with pursuing a strictly racial Malay agenda with the agenda of other non-Malay Malaysians.

Muhyiddin even pursues the perverse logic that DAP leaders such as Lim Kit Siang and myself are Chinese chauvinists even though DAP has fought for all Malaysians and our membership open to all including Malays, Indians Ibans and Kadazans. Muhyiddin conveniently ignores the fact that I was imprisoned and lost my parliamentary seat for defending an underaged Malay rape victim who was detained instead of her rapists.

DAP is no threat to Malays. Only UMNO is a threat to Malays and Malaysians with its open acceptance and defence of repressive violation of basic human rights, corruption and abuse of power.

5 Reasons Why Penang Will Not Go To The Polls This Year If Prime Minister Dato Seri Najib Tun Razak Calls For Snap Elections.(en/bm/cn)

As speculation rises whether Prime Minister Dato Seri Najib Tun Razak will call for snap elections on this auspicious date of 11 November 2011, there are 5 key reasons why Penang will not follow suit and hold concurrent elections with the federal parliamentary seats this year.

One, BN has still not fulfilled its promise to repeal the Internal Security Act and disbursed RM 500 to all households earning below RM3,000 per month. Questions are raised as to whether BN will conduct a mere cosmetic exercise of repealing the ISA but replacing it with two ISA-like laws. resulting in Malaysians ending up with two ISAs instead of one.

Four Points Of Fellowship That Ensures Individual Progress And Successful Transformation Of Penang As An International And Intelligent City.(en/cn)

Speech By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng During The Penang Soroptimists Ladies Annual Dinner For Charity In The E&O Hotel In Penang on 5.11.2011.

I am pleased to be at the “Soroptimist” Penang Dinner for Charity. Soroptimist are `ladies at their best, doing their best.’ In Penang we are unique. Not only do we have many capable ladies at their best and doing their best, we are different in that our ladies’ achievements are appreciated by the men in Penang.

Because men appreciate our women, that is the reason why there are so many women holding top state government positions. Both the President of both the Penang Island Municipal Council and the Seberang Perai Municipal Council are women, creating history as the first women local government presidents in Peninsular Malaysia.
