Tan Sri Adenan Satem Should Set A Deadline To Pull Out Of BN If The BN Federal Government Refuses To Accede To Sarawak’s Demands For Autonomy As Guaranteed In The 1963 Malaysian Agreement Leading To The 1963 Federal Constitution.(e/c)

Speech By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng During The DAP Sarawak 18th State Annual Convention In Sibu On 30.10.2016 Read Out By DAP National Vice-Chairman Chong Chien Jen.

DAP is proud to be the authentic and genuine pro-Sarawak political party to consistently defend, preserve and promote the rights of Sarawakians against the onslaught of BN in encroaching on the constitutional status of Sarawak. This principled stand on behalf of Sarawakians is proudly amplified by DAP leader Lim Kit Siang, leading DAP MPs to vote against the 1976 amendments to Article 1(2) of the Federal Constitution, which diluted, diminished and reduced the historic role of Sarawak in forming Malaysia.

The 1976 Federal Constitution amendments had downgraded the status of Sarawak from being an equal partner with Sabah, Sarawak and Peninsular Malaysia to being a mere one of the 14 states comprising the Malaysian Federation. To reverse the downgrade of Sarawak’s status, Article 1(2) of the Federal Constitution must be amended back its original status to restore the rightful position of both Sabah and Sarawak that was agreed upon in 1963.

DAP had proposed this during the Sarawak state general elections without any response from either BN or Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem. What is the point of the Sarawak state goverment tabling a motion at the state legislative assembly next month to reclaim Sarawak’s rights under the Malaysia Agreement of 1963 if BN in Putrajaya chooses to continue to ignore it? Sarawak is one of the founding members for Malaysia together with Sabah and Peninsular Malaysia, and its status is larger than any of the 9 individual states in Peninsular Malaysia.

Unfortunately, BN had orchestrated the amendment to the Federal Constitution in 1976, that was opposed by the DAP but supported by the BN Sarawak MPs, in downgrading Sarawak to the status of being only one among 14 states. Tan Sri Adenan should set a deadline to pull his MPs out of BN, if the BN Federal government refuses to accede to Sarawak’s demands for autonomy as guaranteed in the 1963 Malaysian Agreement leading to the 1963 Federal Constitution. BN must be taught a lesson and be reminded that just as without Sarawak there is no Malaysia, similarly without the support of Sarawak MPs, BN would lose Federal power.

Dr Sim Kui Hian Should Apologise And Withdraw His Insensitive Remark That The Increase In Cooking Oil Prices Should Be Viewed Positively As It Is Good For Health.

SUPP President and Sarawak Local Government Minister Dr Sim Kui Hian should apologise and withdraw his insensitive remark that the increase in cooking oil prices should be viewed positively as it is good for health. These remarks show how disconnected and out of touch a wealthy man like Dr Sim is with the economic hardships of ordinary Malaysians suffering from rising prices.

The removal of cooking oil subsidy has impacted negatively until we can see a shortage of cooking oil caused by desperate Malaysians buying out all cooking oil to save money from the price increase. And instead of offering support, Dr Sim is so heartless as to ignore the economic hardship and say that price rises are good because it is good for health.

Dr Sim also suggested that people should go for alternative styles of cooking like steaming, baking or grilling which reduced oil usage. This only confirms that BN does not care about the poor, suffering from price rises caused by GST or drop in the value of the ringgit and the RM52 billion 1MDB or the RM4.2 billion donation scandals.

In the coming general elections, DAP must focus on economic issues and ensuring autonomous powers for Sarawak as provided in Malaysia Agreement to uplift the economic status of Sarawak. DAP Sarawak members should be proud of our history in daring to stand up alone to defend the rights and status of Sarawak in 1976, at a time when even Sarawak BN component parties have abandoned Sarawak. If necessary, DAP is prepared to stand alone as we did in 1976, to defend the civil, political and economic rights of Sarawakians.

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼国会议员林冠英于2016年10月30日在诗巫召开的砂拉越民主行动党第18届大会由民主行动党全国副主席张健仁代读之演讲词

如果国阵联邦政府拒绝砂拉越的要求兑现在1963年联邦宪法赋予的1963年马来西亚协议给予砂拉越自制权,那么丹斯里阿德南应该设一个期限退出国阵。

民主行动党很自豪因为行动党是真心为砂拉越的政党,一如既往捍卫、维护及提倡砂拉越人的权力,对抗一直违反联邦宪法给予砂拉越特殊地位的国阵。这项于砂拉越人民同在的原则从行动党领袖林吉祥在国会投反对票对抗稀释、削权、减少砂拉越在组成马来西亚历史地位的联邦宪法1976年修宪宪章1(2)修正案。

1976年联邦宪法修正案将砂拉越的地位降低为马来西亚联邦14州的其中一州。要将砂拉越已被1976年宪法修正案降级的地位,就必须要将其修正回来,以让沙巴与砂拉越还原为1963年所达至协议的正确地位。

行动党在砂拉越州选举的时候曾经倡议重新修正案,但并没有获得国阵或砂拉越首长阿德南的任何回应。若坐在布城的国阵继续无视,即便砂拉越州政府欲在下个月的州议会中动议重新更正回1963年马来西亚协议的地位又有何用?砂拉越与沙巴及马来半岛都是马来西亚的创立者之一,砂拉越与沙巴的地位理应比其他半岛的九个州属要大。

很不幸的,国阵在1976年亲自执导了这项联邦宪法修宪案,当时行动党的国会议员反对,但砂拉越的国阵议员却支持这项将砂拉越降级为马来西亚14个州属之一的修正案。如果国阵联邦政府拒绝砂拉越的要求兑现在1963年联邦宪法赋予的1963年马来西亚协议给予砂拉越自制权,那么丹斯里阿德南应该设一个期限要求他的国会议员退出国阵。国阵必须被教训一下,让他们知道如果没有砂拉越就没有马来西亚,同样的没有砂拉越国会议员支持,国阵将失去联邦政权。

沈桂贤医生必选道歉及收回他认为应该要正面看待食油涨价因为这有益健康的言论。

人联党党主席沈桂贤医生必须道歉及收回他认为应该要正面看待食油涨价因为这有益健康的言论。这言论显示富有的沈医生对于马来西亚普通百姓面对百物皆涨的经济困境是如何脱节。

撤销食油津贴所带来的负面冲击让我们看到绝望的大马人为了在涨价前能省钱而抢购食油,结果导致食油短缺。沈医生不但不支持民众,反而心里莫视人们的经济困境,竟然说出涨价好,因为它对有益健康。

沈医生还建议人们应该转换烹饪的方式,如可减少用油量的清蒸、烘烤或烧烤。这只会更加证实国阵不关心贫穷百姓面对消费税导致的物价高涨及520亿令吉1MDB丑闻及42亿令吉捐献丑闻导致马币贬值而受苦。

在接下来的全国大选,行动党必须把焦点放在经济课题及确保马来西亚协议中给予砂拉越的自治权力能提升砂拉越的经济状况。砂拉越行动党党员应该为我们1876年独自挺身而出捍卫砂拉越权力的历史感到自豪,当时即便是砂拉越国阵成员党也抛弃砂拉越。如有必要,行动党准备独自挺身而出捍卫砂拉越人应有的公民权力、政治权力及经济权力。
