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.

Tan Sri Adenan has returned the favour to Najib by supporting the implementation of GST in Sarawak and directing all BN Sarawak MPs to vote for the GST bill in Parliament. So confident is Najib of Adenan’s undivided and loyal for support for him, that Najib can reject Sarawak’s request for an increase in oil royalties from 5% to 20% at yesterday’s Cabinet meeting. No wonder the Prime Minister is going all out to ensure a landslide victory for ‘Team Adenan’, because ‘Team Adenan’ is actually ‘Team Najib’, even holding the weekly Cabinet meeting in Kuching yesterday.

It is therefore untrue and dishonest for Tan Sri Adenan to claim that the Sarawak state general elections is not about the RM50 billion 1MDB scandal, GST or Najib’s RM2.6 billion donation in his personal bank account. Sarawakian voters should therefore consider carefully that in voting for ‘Team Adenan’, they are also getting ‘Team Najib’ – buy one get one free.

Sarawakians cannot trust this Siamese twins of ‘Team Najib/Adenan’ with absolute victories that would lead to absolute powers, in view of the poor record of abusing their powers,especially land scandals of selling thousands of acres of land at only RM300 per acre, not to ordinary Sarawakians but to “well-connected” personalities. For this reason voting in a strong DAP team to deny BN its 2/3 majority is crucial towards protecting the rights of Sarawak from being bullied by this Siamese twins of “Team Najib/Adenan’.

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%. Voting in Team Najib/Adenan would mean accepting paying GST, supporting oil royalties not increased to 20% and even endorsing all the land and financial scandals like RM50 billion 1MDB and RM 2.6 billion donation scandals.

Najib is not only deceiving the public but also himself when he claimed that holding such a Cabinet meeting in Kuching, is nothing extraordinary because each minister has responsibilities at the state level. If that is the case, then why are Cabinet meetings not held in every state? Why only hold Cabinet meetings in Kuching during the period of the Sarawak state general elections but not on other ordinary occasions?

In response, Najib said “If the opposition wants to make this an issue, I wish to remind their leaders like Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, that he has no powers outside Penang but is here only for campaigning purposes.” I do not know why Najib wishes to make an issue of my presence in Sarawak when I openly say I come to campaign for the 31 DAP candidates contesting in Sarawak. I have never held my weekly state Cabinet(EXCO) meetings outside Penang and definitely never in Kuching.

I have also never hidden the fact that I am in Sarawak to conduct legitimate political activity as provided for under Section 67 of the Immigration Act. However, despite exercising my legal rights in conducting legitimate political activity, a Chief Minister from Penang is only allowed to be in Sarawak until 5 May and barred from remaining in Sarawak until voting day on 7 May 2016. This abuse of power is an indicator that Adenan is behaving no different from Najib in his willingness to abuse his power that even his predecessor never did.

槟州首席部长兼民主行动党秘书长林冠英于2016年5月5日在吉隆坡发表声明:

在被拿督斯里纳吉钦点为砂拉越首长之后,丹斯里阿德南欣然投桃报李,全力支持消费税的实行,以及接受砂拉越的石油开采税不会从5%增加至20%的事实。

国阵强调,把票投给“阿德南团队”,就是在捍卫砂拉越权益与主权,这样的说辞显然是一种迷思,因为多媒体与通讯部长沙烈赛益已承认,丹斯里阿德南其实是被首相拿督斯里纳吉钦点为砂拉越首席部长的。如果这是一项事实,那阿德南势必对首相感激涕零,同时也欠了首相钦点他为砂洲首长的一份人情。

为投桃报李,丹斯里阿德南过后全力支持消费税在砂拉越实行,并指示所有砂州国阵国会议员在下议院通过消费税的落实。对于阿德南全心全意的效忠,纳吉是成竹在胸的,以致他可以在昨日内阁会议中,明确拒绝砂拉越要求石油税从5%提升到20%。凡此种种,说明了为何纳吉在这次的选举中全力以赴,甚至在昨日把整个内阁会议搬到古晋去,务求“阿德南团队”在选举中获得压倒性的胜利,因为首相深知,所谓的“阿德南团队”实际上就是“纳吉团队”。

阿德南声称,砂拉越州选和1MDB的500亿令吉丑闻、消费税或纳吉个人银行户头内的26亿令吉捐款毫无关系,事实上这样的说法是不正确的,也恰恰彰显了他的不诚实。砂拉越人在投票之前务必三思,因为投给“阿德南团队”,意味着你将获得“纳吉团队”——这根本是一个买一送一的幌子。

对于“纳吉/阿德南团队”这个连体怪胎,砂拉越人绝不能掉以轻心。从他们过往滥权的记录来看,特别是土地丑闻——以每英亩300令吉的贱价,出售数千英亩的砂州土地予有关系的人士而非砂州本土人。我们可以想象到,一旦他们获得压倒性的胜利取得绝对的权力后,将带来种种可怕的恶果。职是之故,把票投给民主行动党,壮大我们的团队以便否决国阵三分二,将是保护砂州权益更好的方式,防止砂州权益被纳吉/阿德南团队这个连体怪胎侵蚀。

在被拿督斯里纳吉钦点为砂拉越首长之后,丹斯里阿德南投桃报李,全力支持消费税的实行,以及接受砂拉越的石油开采税不会从5%增加至20%的事实。现在,若是把票投给纳吉/阿德南团队,代表你接受缴付消费税、支持石油开采税不必提升到20%,同时更是支持所有的土地与金融丑闻,诸如1MDB的500亿令吉丑闻以及26亿令吉的捐款丑闻等。

首相把整个内阁会议搬去古晋召开,他说此举并无不寻常之处,因为每个部长对州层级的事务皆有责任。此番说法不仅是在对民众说谎,甚至是在蒙骗自己,果真如此,为何内阁会议不周游列州,却偏偏选在砂拉越州选举展开之际,把内阁会议迁到古晋召开?

纳吉还回应:“倘若反对党要针对此事大作文章,我在这里要提醒他们的领袖如槟州首席部长林冠英,他在槟州以外并无权力,在这里只能参与选举造势。”我委实不明白为何纳吉要点名我,我已经公开说明,砂州之行目的在于为31名行动党候选人助选造势。我从未将槟州的行政会议搬到槟州以外的地方召开,更别说是到古晋举行。

我从未隐瞒来砂州的目的,我来此是进行合法的政治活动,是移民法第67条文下所赋予的权限。即便我是在合法的情况下来履行正当的政治活动,但,作为槟州首席部长,我被限制在5月5日出镜,无法逗留到5月7日投票当天。这种滥权的行为,显示阿德南与纳吉并无两样,就算是之前也无人试过这么做。

林冠英
