The Education Ministry Should Admit Its Defects And Revamp The National Education Curriculum For Failing To Be Malaysian With Only 4% Of Non-Malays Enrolled In National Schools(e/c)

Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 9.8.2016.

The Education Ministry Should Admit Its Defects And Revamp The National Education Curriculum For Failing To Be Malaysian With Only 4% Of Non-Malays Enrolled In National Schools As Compared To The Greater Diversity And Malaysianness Of Chinese Schools With 18% Non-Chinese Students.

The Education Ministry should admit its defects and revamp the National Education Curriculum for failing to be Malaysian with only 4% of non-Malays enrolled in national schools as compared to the greater diversity and Malaysianness of Chinese schools with 18% non-Chinese students. Whilst we would agree with Education Minister Dato Seri Mahdzir Khalid that Chinese schools would never be a mainstream school in 10 years time and it impossible to replace national schools, Mahdzir must concede that national schools have failed to promote greater diversity and a more Malaysian character when even Chinese schools are more multi-racial than national schools.

Speech by YAB Tuan Lim Guan Eng, Chief Minister of Penang, at the Penang International Property Conference(e/c)

Speech by YAB Tuan Lim Guan Eng, Chief Minister of Penang, at the Penang International Property Conference
on 5 August 2016.

I wish to thank the organizer of this event, the Penang State Housing Committee and Penevents Sdn Bhd, for organizing this mid-term review of the Penang International Property (PIP) Summit Conference. I am pleased to be here once again to give all of you an over-view of what has happened where the State’s initiative to attract investment which will have an impact on the property sector and what is to be expected in the next few months before we draw a close to 2016.

Malaysia has been buffeted by economic headwinds some due to the global economic slowdown such as the sharp drop in oil prices, others self-inflicted such as the RM50 billion 1MDB scandal that caused the Ringgit to plummet in value and the imposition of GST. GST should only be imposed on high-income countries like Singapore. Middle income countries take at least 2-3 years to recover and the timing is poorly planned and a failure of policy management. Thailand has GST and its economy has performed poorly. Singapore has managed to weather the ill-effects as a high-income economy. Whilst many external factors have impeded Malaysia as a whole, Penang remains resilient, helped by the manufacturing and services sector as well as increase in tourism.

Bilakah Prasarana Malaysia Bhd Akan Mengambilalih Perkhidmatan Feri Pulau Pinang Yang Perlukan Suntikan Kewangan Untuk Membeli Feri Baru Dan Menambahkan Kekerapan Trip Yang Kian Berkurangan?

Kementerian Kewangan perlu jelaskan laporan pelbagai pihak, bahawa Prasarana akan mengambilalih perkhidmatan feri Pulau Pinang, dan sekiranya benar bila ia akan dilakukan.

DAP will not press ahead with our proposal to dissolve the Penang State assembly and conduct state general election.(e/m/c)

Press Conference Statement By Penang Chief Minister and DAP Secretary General Lim Guan Eng In Komtar, George Town On 31.7.2016.

DAP will not press ahead with our proposal to dissolve the Penang State assembly and conduct state general election. This decision was made following quick consultation with party leaders and the Penang state leadership after PKR Deputy President and Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Azmin Ali informed me yesterday, that the PKR leadership did not agree with having early polls.

Datuk Seri Azmin, PKR Vice-President Nurul Izzah and PKR National Elections Director Saifudin Nasution had earlier met myself and Penang State Chair Chow Kon Yeow in Penang on 20.7.2016, to listen to our reasons for a state general election. We had explained that it would be be a pro-active strategy not just to let the people decide, whether I should continue as Penang Chief Minister whilst facing the trumped-up corruption allegations against me, but more importantly to pass a verdict on the historic act by the US Attorney-General, of seeking a seizure of US1 billion of assets stolen by 1MDB from Malaysians.

国阵政府应该即刻无条件承认独中统考文凭,让独中生可以直接使用统考成绩申请本地大学及成为公务员。

民主行动党秘书长林冠英于2016年7月29日 发表声明:

本周内阁会议过后,国阵政府依然没有承认独中统考文凭。马华民政到底在内阁里面有没有争取承认独中统考文凭?“争取”承认独中统考争取了41年依然“只欠东风”,虎头蛇尾,自己讲自己爽。

几天前马华副教育部长张盛闻在公告天下,信誓旦旦地说承认统考文凭进入“最后阶段”,但是本周内阁会议过后,我们还是没有看到好消息。看来马华民政部长们在内阁里所谓的“协商精神”只是继续做应声虫,对外信誓旦旦地说承认独中统考在望对在内却后知后觉、慢吞吞处理统考不受承认的事。 Continue reading ‘国阵政府应该即刻无条件承认独中统考文凭,让独中生可以直接使用统考成绩申请本地大学及成为公务员。’

Open Letter to Malaysians By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng(e/c)

Open Letter to Malaysians By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Komtar, George Town On 28.7.2016.

A Fresh Mandate For A New Malaysia – An Entrepreneurial And Welfare State.

The proposed early general election for Penang is not intended to save Lim Guan Eng from trumped up corruption charges. Lim Guan Eng can not be saved politically. However it is clear that Malaysia and Penang can still be saved from BN’s dirty political manipulation to undermine the people’s yearning for change for a clean Malaysia, that is free from the massive corruption evident in the 1MDB scandal.

BN will not stop at their political conspiracy to character assassinate me that I abused my power to benefit Ms Phang, who sold her 30 year house to me. The truth that she made a profit and not a loss from selling her house to me, is overlooked. The fact that she has no direct business dealings and did not benefit from the state government is ignored – her land is still zoned as agricultural and could not be rezoned as housing, after the local government council rejected her application.

PKR Deputy President and Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Azmin Ali, PKR Vice-President Nurul Izzah and PKR National Elections Director Saifudin Nasution met me at my office yesterday, in the presence of DAP Penang State Chairman Chow Kon Yeow, to discuss the matter of conducting state general election in Penang.

The DAP Central Executive Committee (CEC) at our meeting on 18.7.2016 had unanimously decided that since the imprisonment of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, severe abuses of power by BN have severely eroded democracy in the country, private and confidential discussions will be held with our allies in Pakatan Harapan on whether to hold or not state general election in Penang.

In the past 4 months, the BN-controlled print and broadcasting media had gone into overdrive with their systematic campaign of character assassination against me

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Komtar, George Town On 17.7.2016.

In the past 4 months, the BN-controlled print and broadcasting media had gone into overdrive with their systematic campaign of character assassination against me by hurling unfounded allegations of corruption involving the sale by open tender of 1 acre of Taman Manggis land. Despite nightly TV reports and acres of newsprint on Taman Manggis land, no corruption charge was filed against me relating to Taman Manggis.
