BN Not Malaysians Are Stupid By Relying On Racism To Cloak Incompetent Cronies Instead Of Spotting Talented Malaysians Right Before Their Very Eyes Such As The Air Asia Team Of Tony Fernandes, Datuk Kamarudin Meranon And Azran Osman Rani.(en/cn)

Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 7.12.2014.

DAP strongly disagrees with former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad over Christoph R Mueller’s appointment as chief executive officer-designate of Malaysia Airlines Bhd (MAS NewCo) shows that Malaysians are stupid in not knowing how to manage aviation incurring billions of ringgit of losses since its inception.

In fact, it is BN and not Malaysians who is stupid, by relying on racism to cloak incompetent cronies instead of spotting talented Malaysians right before their very eyes such as the Air Asia team of Tony Fernandes, Datuk Kamarudin Meranon and Azran Osman Rani. The success of Air Asia is well-known internationally. Without a single cent in government support and subsidies, they have transformed the airline industry by offering affordable fares where “everyone can fly”.

The contrast could not be greater. MAS recorded huge losses despite the Federal government offering tens of billions of ringgit and charging higher fares whilst Air Asia recorded huge profits despite charging budget fares. The secret of Air Asia success is simple and found in all excellent companies – a relentless and rigorous focus on competency, honesty and talent spotting regardless of race or religion.

Whilst the best and brightest Malaysian and foreigners are appointed in Air Asia, the Malaysian government has adopted a failed approach of not punishing and sometimes even rewarding bad behaviour. There is great concern whether this failed approach will be repeated in 1MDB, with RM41.9 billion in debts and some doubts whether its assets can continue to retain its value.

Malaysians hopes that the new foreign CEO will be given the free hand to clean up MAS by focusing on mismanagement first, instead of taking the easy way out of blaming the 20,000 staff and reducing it by 6,000 to 14,000. Malaysians are also curious as to the terms and benefits accruing to the new foreign CEO and that should be revealed to demonstrate MAS’ new-found commitment to transparency and accountability.

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2014年12月7日在吉隆坡发表声明:

愚笨的是国阵,而不是马来西亚人,国阵继续用种族主义的外衣来包装不能干的朋党,而不是物色有才能、“近在眼前”的马来西亚人, 比如亚航的团队东尼•费尔南斯德、拿督加马鲁丁及阿兹兰奥斯曼

民主行动党强烈不认同前首相敦马哈迪针对克里斯多福慕勒被委任为马航新任总执行长,是因为马来西亚人愚笨,不善经营航空业,以致损失几十亿令吉。

事实上,愚笨的是国阵,而不是马来西亚人,国阵继续用种族主义的外衣来包装不能干的朋党,而不是物色有才能、“近在眼前”的马来西亚人, 比如亚航的团队东尼•费尔南斯德、拿督加马鲁丁及阿兹兰奥斯曼。亚航的成功已是国际知名,政府根本没有给到一分钱的支持及津贴,他们通过提供廉价机票,“每个人都能飞”,让整个航空业转型。

这种对比每个人都看到。尽管联邦政府津贴了几百亿令吉、机票价格较高,马航依旧破记录年年亏损,而亚航提供廉价机票却能够赚钱。 亚航成功的原因很简单,也能够在所有成功的企业找到,包括坚定地、严格地不分种族或宗教,任人唯贤、物色能干及诚实的人。

在亚航,他们选用最好及最聪明的马来西亚人及外国人,而马来西亚政府却采纳失败的策略,不惩罚犯错者,而且还“奖赏”恶行。大家都关心这些失败的策略是不是也发生在一马发展机构,这个机构欠债达419亿令吉,一些人甚至怀疑它的资产能不能继续让它保值。

马来西亚人希望新任的外国总执行长能够在不摆布地的情况下,整顿马航,首先解决管理不当的问题,而不是简单地把2万名员工,减到6000人至1万4000人之间。我国人民也好奇想知道,政府提供什么条件给这名新任外国总执行长,有关当局应该公开聘书内容,以展示马航立志推行透明问责制度。

林冠英
