DAP 2012 Christmas Day Message By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 24.12.2012

Let Us Advance Efforts To Establish A People-Centric Government Based On Integrity That Puts People Over Profits To Put A Stop To All Future Lynas Rare Earth Plant, Automated Enforcement System(AES) And The RM 871 Billion Dirty Money Scandals.

Christmas celebrates the blessings of peace, prosperity, forgiveness and salvation. Similarly, a people-centric government can also bring peace and prosperity based on the principles of truth, freedom, justice, democracy and integrity.

For this reason, DAP urges the BN Federal government to allow the use of the word Allah on the Bahasa Malaysia version of the Bible as has been allowed in Sabah and Sarawak for the last 50 years and practiced in the Middle East for more than a thousand years. Further, BN should stop using the fear tactics of a Christian state to frighten Malay voters to support BN when Christians have never sought a Christian state but instead pledged loyalty to the Federal Constitution that Islam is the religion of Malaysia.

Although principles and idealism has been dismissed by some irresponsible quarters as incompatible with running a government, a people-centric government can be both principled but practical, idealistic and yet realistic. For example, implementing open competitive tenders is not only idealistic but now a realistic component that contributed towards some of Penang’s achievements.

This lack of faithfulness to principles has shown how impractical it is to the public as highlighted by three recent major issues of public interest, namely the threat of Lynas rare earth plant on the health and safety of the rakyat, the privatisation of enforcement by allowing private companies to profit from the traffic summons issued and the RM 871 billion illicit outflow of dirty money scandal over the last 10 years.

A people-centric government would never allow these projects that put profits over people. Further these projects would never pass the integrity test, as accountability and transparency would quickly expose the lies, injustice and cronies who benefit most at the expense of public interest.

Let us advance efforts to establish a people-centric government based on integrity that gives preference to people over profits to put a stop to any future Lynas rare earth plant, Automated Enforcement System(AES) and RM 871 billion illicit outflow of dirty money scandals

Merry Christmas!

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼国会议员林冠英于2012年12月24日在吉隆坡发表的圣诞节献词。

让我们一起作为先行者,成立一个将人民权益大于自身利益,立基廉洁的以民为本政府,好让在未来能终止莱纳斯稀土厂、自动执法系统及8千710亿令吉的黑钱外流丑闻。

圣诞节是欢庆和平、昌盛、救赎的节日。同样的,以民为本的政府也可以凭着捍卫真理、自由、正义、民主及廉洁的原则,带来和平及昌盛。

因此,行动党呼吁国阵联邦政府允许马来文版圣经可以使用阿拉字眼,因为这在沙巴及砂拉越已经沿用了50年,在中东地区也已经沿用了千年。同时,国阵也必须停止使用成立基督教国的恐吓手段恐吓马来选民来支持国阵,因为基督徒不曾要成立基督国,反而尊崇联邦宪法所列名伊斯兰教是马来西亚国教。

虽然秉持原则与理想主义早已经被一些不负责任又不胜任的政府弃而不顾,反过来,以民为本的政府,却能同时能兼具原则与实践,理想与务实。举个例子,实施公开招标不只是理想的政策,事实上也已经成为槟城其中一项成就。

对公众来说,缺乏原则是最不切实际的,尤其是近期三项涉及公众利益的事件,其一是影响人民健康及安全的莱纳斯稀土厂,其二是私营化交通罚单典当执法权,让私人公司借此牟利,最后就是过去10年共有8千710亿令吉黑钱外流的丑闻。

以民为本的政府绝不允许这些计划向人民榨取利益。更甚的是,这些计划根本经不起廉洁的检验,在诚信与透明的诉求下,这些谎言、不公义及朋党透过榨取公众利益牟利恶行,很快就会被揭穿。

让我们一起作为先行者,成立一个将人民权益大于自身利益,立基廉洁的以民为本政府,好让在未来能终止莱纳斯稀土厂、自动执法系统及8千710亿令吉的黑钱外流丑闻。

祝愿各位,圣诞快乐!

林冠英
