The Prime Minister Should Prove That BN Is Ready To Change By Not Only Changing The Sarawak Chief Minister But Asking Tan Sri Taib Mahmud To Share His Wealth With The People Of Sarawak. (en/cn)

Speech By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In The DAP Bidayuh Ceramah In Serian Town, Sarawak On 25.11.2012.

DAP challenges Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to prove his claim that a change in government is not necessary to bring changes in the country. In one critical area that BN has failed to change is fighting corruption. Even I will believe the Prime Minister that BN is ready to change if Najib can not only change the Sarawak Chief Minister but asking Tan Sri Taib Mahmud to share his wealth with the people of Sarawak

This historic DAP ceramah in the small town of Serian by DAP Serian Branch with over 2,000 mainly Bidayuhs, show that Sarawak native people such as Bidayuh, are ready to accept the DAP for the first time ever because you want a change of government. You want a change in government because you know BN can not change. As long as BN supports corruption as it has done over 50 years, we know that BN will never change just like a leopard cannot change its spots.

However let us give the Prime Minister one more chance to prove that BN can change and can fight corruption. Will BN adopt the 6 tests of fighting corruption of making a public declaration of assets, implementing open competitive tenders, bar family members from being involved with government contracts, protect genuine whistleblowers, remove BN leaders with extravagant lifestyles and come clean on political donations? Fighting corruption is not just having clean political leaders but also implementing a system of institutions that can automatically check, detect and punish corruption.

Malaysians are disappointed that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak consider the RM40 million donation to UMNO Sabah as proper and appropriate and has even rejected outright the allegations of extraordinary wealth of Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Taib Mahmud. Taib’s former daughter-in-law, Mahmud Shahnaz Abdul Majid, revealed that Taib’s son charged RM782,520.55 to just one of his credit cards for the first six months of this year. Shahnaz is claiming RM400 million in their divorce settlement in the Syariah courts as her husband is reputedly worth RM1 billion with RM 700 million of deposits in 111 bank accounts in local foreign countries.

If Taib’s son is so wealthy, definitely his family is wealthier. Let Najib prove that he means what he says by getting Taib Mahmud to share all his family’s wealth with the people of Sarawak.

PR Will Wipe Out Poverty In Sarawak The Same Way Penang Will Be The First State In Malaysia To Wipe Out Poverty By 2013.

PR will wipe out poverty in Sarawak the same way Penang will be the first state in Malaysia to wipe out poverty by 2013. In Sarawak the poverty line is RM 912 per month for every household. In Penang it is RM763 per month per household.

Penang will wipe out poverty next year by ensuring that every household next year will exceed the poverty line by receiving at least RM770 every month. For households with less than RM770 every month, the Penang PR state government will top up the difference every month to RM770. For instance, if the family only receives RM600, then the state government will top up the difference of RM170 every month to RM770.

RM 20 million will be allocated for this poverty eradication exercise by the Penang PR state government. If Penang can do it, a richer state like Sarawak can also do it by ensuring that every household gets at least RM912 per month. Since BN has refused to do it for the last 49 years, let us change so that PR can show how wiping out poverty in Sarawak can be done.

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英在2012年11月25日出席于砂拉越西连小镇举行的政治座谈会演讲稿。
要向人民证明国阵准备改变的决心,首相不只应撤换砂拉越州首席部长,还应该要求丹斯里泰益玛目与砂州全民共享其财富。

民主行政党挑战首相拿督斯里纳吉证明他的“要改变国家,未必需要换政府”的说法。国阵连最关键的领域,也即是肃贪都没有办法带来改变。若首相纳吉能够撤换砂拉越首席部长,并谕令丹斯里泰益玛目将其财富与砂州人民共享,我才相信首相的“国阵已准备作出改变”的说法。

这场由行动党西连小镇区部在西连小镇主办的座谈会,吸引了共2千多名、多数为比达友族的听众出席。这对行动党而言是历史性的座谈会,这证明了砂州的当地人诸如比达友族,已经准备首次接受民主行动党,因为要换政府!砂州人民要换政府是因为他们知道,国阵是不会改变的。只要国阵一如它们在过往的50多年般支持贪污,我们知道,国阵永远不会改变的,就如豹子不可能将身上的豹斑改掉一样。

无论如何,就让我们给予首相多一次的机会,以证明国阵是准备改变,也准备肃贪的。国阵会否采纳肃贪的六大考验:公布民选高官财产、公开招标、禁止家庭成员涉入政府合约、保护真正的吹哨人、除掉生活奢华的国阵领袖、坦白交代政治献金?肃贪不只是需要有廉洁的政治领袖,也需要实践一套体系,以自动检查、揭发及惩治涉贪者。

首相拿督斯里纳吉视沙巴巫统所获的4000万令吉政治献金视为正当及恰当,并公然地驳斥关于砂州首长丹斯里泰益玛目不寻常财富的指控,让马来西亚人对此深感失望。泰益的前媳妇莎娜兹揭露,泰益儿子单单一张信用卡,在今年6个月内就狂刷了78万2520令吉55仙。莎娜兹的丈夫,因为据称在国内外111个银行户口存了7亿令吉,共拥有10亿令吉财产,所以莎娜兹透过伊斯兰法庭索取4亿令吉的离婚赡养费。

若泰益的儿子已经这么富裕,肯定地其家庭更富裕。纳吉应谕令泰益玛目与砂州全民共享其身家,以证明纳吉是言出必行的。

民联将仿效槟城的除贫模式,以在砂拉越州除贫。槟城将在2013年成为全马首个零贫穷率的州属。

民联将仿效槟城的除贫模式,以在砂拉越州除贫。槟城将在2013年成为全马首个零贫穷率的州属。砂拉越的贫穷线为每个家庭月入在912令吉以下,而槟城的贫穷线则是每个家庭月入763令吉。

槟城将在明年完全除贫,以确保每个家庭月入超过州内的贫穷线,或至少有770令吉。那些月入低于770令吉的家庭,槟州民联政府将会以加额的方式,每月补贴他们月入及770令吉之间的差额。比如说,若一个家庭月入只有600令吉,那州政府将会在每个月加额170令吉的差距给此家庭,让他们达致至少770令吉的月入。

为了这个除贫计划,槟州民联政府已拨出了2千万令吉,作为除贫计划的基金。若槟城政府可以做得到,一个比槟州富裕多倍的砂拉越州肯定可以做到,确保州内每个家庭每月至少获得912令吉的收入。既然国阵在过去的49年皆不愿意解决这个问题,就让我们作出改变,以证明民联挑起让砂州除贫这个任务。

林冠英
