DAP Endorses Annual 3 Days Paid Parental Leave To Look After Sick Children Under 12 Years Old.(e/m/c)

Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 28.3.3017.

The DAP Central Executive Committee(CEC) at its meeting last night made a historic decision to adopt parental leave proposed by DAP Wanita. DAP Wanita Chief and Penang state EXCO member Chong Eng had made the proposal on the basis that many young working parents, especially those without family support in the cities, are struggling between paid jobs and caring for their children and family.

In a patriarchal society that follows the traditional model of gender division of family responsibilities, the father takes care of family livelihood whilst the mother takes care of the children and household. The burden of caring for a sick child invariably falls on the mother. Motherhood and caring for off springs are the main reason that women drop out from the career path, being paid less and discriminated in promotion.

DAP wishes to reprimand the police for practicing double standards and arbitrarily exercising their powers in seeking a 4-day remand order for Hew Kuan Yau(e/c)

Press Statement by the DAP Secretary-General and Member of Parliament for Bagan Lim Guan Eng in Komtar, George Town on 21 March 2017

DAP wishes to reprimand the police for practicing double standards and arbitrarily exercising their powers in seeking a 4-day remand order for Hew Kuan Yau, also known as ‘Superman’ to facilitate investigations for allegedly insulting the Prime Minister and his wife.

Even though we may not agree with what he has written, it should not justify the 4-day remand order. Such an offence under the Communication and Multimedia Act 1998 for insulting the Prime Minister and his wife cannot be so severe until he has to be remanded 4 days as compared to other offences such as financial scandals which have caused great financial loss to the country and harm to the people such as 1MDB, RM52 Billion scandal and the USD1 Billion donation scandal.

UCAPAN KETUA MENTERI PULAU PINANG SEMPENA MAJLIS PERASMIAN MULA KERJA PENGECATAN SEMULA BLOK 38, PANGSAPURI CENTURY, JALAN PANTAI JEREJAK

Di sini, saya ingin mengucapkan terima kasih kepada pihak Penang Development Corporation (PDC) yang sudi bekerjasama dengan Perbadanan Pengurusan (MC) untuk memastikan majlis pengecatan semula projek di Blok 38, Pangsapuri Century, Jalan Pantai Jerejak pada hari ini dapat direalisasikan. Di dalam hal ini, PDC sebagai pengurus projek telah melaksanakan tanggungjawab sosial korporat (CSR) meskipun mengetahui Blok 38.

Seperti mana yang kita semua sedia maklum, Pangsapuri Century mempunyai satu blok bangunan 9 tingkat yang telah siap dibina pada tahun 1993 oleh pihak swasta dan mengandungi 143 unit kediaman dan 13 unit komersil.

Kerja-kerja pengecatan semula di Blok 38, Pangsapuri Century ini melibatkan kos keseluruhan sebanyak RM153,600.

Dalam usaha untuk membantu MC Blok 38, dengan sukacita dimaklumkan bahawa pihak Kerajaan Negeri telah menghulurkan bantuan dana di mana agihan perkongsian kos adalah seperti berikut:

YAB Ketua Menteri, RM70,600 (46.00%)
MC Blok 38, Pangsapuri Century RM30,000 (19.50%)
YB Dr. T Jayablan(ADUN Kawasan Batu Uban) RM20,000 (13.00%)
YB Dato’ Haji Mohd Rashid (TKM1/ ADUN Kawasan Pantai Jerejak) / RM16,500 (10.75%)
YB Sim Tze Tzin (Ahli Parlimen Pantai Jerejak) RM16,500 (10.75%)
Jumlah RM153,600 (100.00%)

Kerja-kerja pengecatan ini telah ditawarkan kepada Intrusa Global Enterprise. Kerja-kerja tersebut telah bermula pada 1 Mac 2017 dan dijangka siap pada 30 April 2017 dengan mengambil tempoh masa selama dua (2) bulan. Perasmian hari ini adalah yang dianggap sah oleh Kerajaan Negeri kerana dianjurkan oleh YB Timbalan Ketua Menteri (I), Dato Mohd Rashid bin Hasnon.

Blok 38, Pangsapuri Century ini tidak pernah menjalankan kerja-kerja pengecatan semula sejak siap dibina pada tahun 1993 dan selepas 26 tahun. Ini juga mencerminkan keprihatinan Kerajaan Negeri ke atas rumah pangsa ini serta janji yang telah kami berikan kepada penduduk di mana saya telah berjumpa sendiri dengan wakil penduduk.

Kejayaan di dalam pelaksanaan kerja-kerja pengecatan semula ini telah melambangkan kerjasama erat di antara penduduk Blok 38, dengan Kerajaan Negeri Pulau Pinang khususnya di dalam usaha menaiktaraf bangunan ini. Saya yakin selepas bangunan ini dicat semula nanti, ianya akan memberikan wajah baru yang akan menambahkan harga dan nilai hartanah di sini.

Akhir sekali, saya dengan berbesar hati, melancarkan secara rasmi kerja-kerja pengecatan semula Blok 38, Pangsapuri Century, Jalan Pantai Jerejak ini.

Malaysians Should Register As Voters To Protect The Democratic Gains Of The March 8 Political Tsunami And Save Malaysia From Corruption, Abuse Of Powers And Those Wanting To Steal Our Children’s Future.(e/c)

Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng On The 9th Anniversary Of The Political Tsunami Of The 12th General Election In Kuala Lumpur On 8.3.2017.

On the 9th anniversary of the political tsunami of the 12th general election, Malaysians should register as voters to protect the democratic gains of the March 8 political tsunami and save Malaysia from corruption, abuse of powers and those wanting to steal our children’s future. Malaysians have seen a burst of hope following the political tsunami which saw BN losing its 2/3 parliamentary majority for the first time in history as well as 5 states to the opposition. However, BN’s destructive policies continue to threaten us, causing hardship to ordinary Malaysians that require a concerted national mobilisation to save our country.

Malaysians, especially youths, have only 2 weeks left to do so if we want to vote in the coming 14th general election. Malaysians need to vote to save our country from economic ruin caused by mammoth corruption such as the RM52 billion 1MDB financial scandal, RM4.2 billon donation scandal, RM4.3 billion FELDA-FGV scandal. This has led to the depreciation of the ringgit to its lowest point and the implementation of the much despised GST, that has failed to prevent inflation.

TO BOLDLY CHANGE THE GAME : AN INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY MESSAGE BY THE RIGHT HONOURABLE CHIEF MINISTER OF PENANG, MR LIM GUAN ENG 8 MARCH 2017

On this day, the 8th of March 2017, I am proud to represent the State Government of Penang in honouring International Women’s Day in the spirit of the international theme for this year, “Be Bold for Change”, and the related local (state-level) theme of “Game Changer”.

The state government is proud in striving towards the empowerment of women. In terms of political achievements, I note with pride that 2017 has seen a marked increase in the number of women appointed to as local councillors in Penang. In January 2017, a total of eight women or 33% of all 24 councillors were appointed to the Penang Island City Council (MBPP), and three women (12%) to the Seberang Perai Municipal Council (MPSP), raising the total representation of women in both councils from 12% last year to 23% this year. Also significant is the mandatory requirement of at least one woman member in every Jawatankuasa Kemajuan dan Keselamatan Kampung(JKKK) in order for it to be allowed to come into operations.

Malaysia Must Increase Its Female Labour Force Participation Rate From The Present 54% in 2015 To 60% To Succeed In Our Transformation Into A Developed Country And High-Income Economy.(e/c)

DAP International Women’s Day Message By DAP Secretary-General and MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng On 7.3.2017 in Kuala Lumpur.

Women plays a critical role in the economic development of a country and is described as the final barrier towards a developed and high-income economy. Developed countries and high-income economies have an average female labour force participation rate of at least 60%.

For this reason, Malaysia must increase its female labour force participation rate from the present 54% in 2015 to 60% to succeed in our transformation into a developed country and high-income economy. To succeed in this effort, the Federal government must encourage women to work not just with better pay and also equal promotion prospects, but also with incentives to allow their children to be taken off whilst they work.

Abdul Rahman Dahlan Should Not Appeal But Accept The Kuala Lumpur High Court Decision With An Open Heart(e/c)

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Komtar, George Town On 5.3.2017.

Abdul Rahman Dahlan Should Not Appeal But Accept The Kuala Lumpur High Court Decision With An Open Heart To Allow The House Buyers To Reclaim Their Rights And Entitlement To Full Compensation From The Housing Developer For Compensation For Late Delivery.

Datuk Seri Abdul Rahman Dahlan should not run away from explaining why the Kuala Lumpur High Court ruled that he abused his powers in favour of housing developers over house buyers, by using a false analogy that the Penang State Government also grants extension of time for our own contracts. Abdul Rahman was the Minister of Housing who had granted a 12-month extension to a developer to complete the project, thereby allowing the developer to record huge savings and purchasers to lose out on their claims of liquidated damages for late delivery.

Surat Perutusan Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang kepada Warga Emas(m/e/c)

SUMBANGAN TAHUNAN RM100 KEPADA WARGA EMAS BERMULA 13 MAC HINGGA 24 MAC 2017

Salam Sejahtera.

Sejak tahun 2008, Kerajaan Negeri Pakatan Harapan telah berjaya mentadbir Negeri Pulau Pinang dengan Cekap, Akauntabel dan Telus (CAT) dalam memikul amanah rakyat. Sistem tender terbuka yang diamalkan Kerajaan Negeri telah membuka mata banyak pihak dan telah diberi pujian oleh Transparency International sebagai kerajaan “pertama” di Malaysia yang mengamalkan sistem ini.

Secara tahunan, Kerajaan Negeri Pakatan Harapan telah memberikan sumbangan kepada rakyat melalui program-program emas seperti Program Penghargaan Warga Emas, Program Bantuan OKU, Program Bantuan Ibu Tunggal dan Program Ibu Emas dengan sumbangan sebanyak RM100. Dalam pada itu, bagi meringankan beban ibu bapa, Kerajaan Negeri turut memberikan bayaran secara one-off RM100 kepada Pelajar Tahun 1 & 4 dan Tingkatan 1 & 4 di bawah Skim Pelajar Emas; RM200 (one-off) melalui Program Anak Emas serta RM1,000 (one-off) kepada mahasiswa. Bagi meringankan beban waris warga emas, ibu tunggal dan OKU dalam pengurusan jenazah, Kerajaan Negeri Pakatan Harapan akan memberikan bantuan secara one-off RM1,000.

Jumlah perbelanjaan yang telah dibelanjakan bagi Program Emas dan pemberian bantuan kepada sekolah dari tahun 2008 hingga 31 Disember 2016 adalah sebanyak RM 412.63 juta yang buat kali pertama diterima oleh 1.6 juta rakyat Pulau Pinang yang sebelum ini tidak menerima sebarang sumbangan daripada Kerajaan Negeri.

Agenda Ekonomi Saksama (AES)

Kerajaan Negeri Pakatan Harapan telah memperkenalkan program Agenda Ekonomi Saksama (AES) bagi memastikan setiap keluarga menerima sekurang-kurangnya RM790 sebulan. Mana-mana keluarga yang berpendapatan per kapita kurang daripada jumlah RM220, Kerajaan Negeri akan “tambah nilai” (top-up) sehingga genap RM220. Contohnya, sekiranya sebuah keluarga mempunyai 5 orang ahli isi rumah dan pendapatan kurang daripada RM1,000 sebulan yakni pendapatan perkapita keluarga tersebut kurang daripada RM220, Kerajaan Negeri akan memberikan “tambah nilai” RM100 setiap bulan.

Kesemua ini dapat dilaksanakan kerana pentadbiran CAT dan kepimpinan bersih yang membolehkan Kerajaan Negeri Pakatan Harapan Pulau Pinang sentiasa mencatatkan lebihan Belanjawan tanpa perlu mengenakan GST. Ini dapat dilihat dengan lebihan Belanjawan terkumpul sejak tahun 2008 sebanyak RM574 juta yang jauh lebih besar daripada lebihan Belanjawan 50 tahun Kerajaan Negeri sebelum ini (1957-2007) sebanyak RM373 juta sahaja.

Kerajaan Negeri Pakatan Harapan akan meneruskan usaha untuk menjadikan Negeri Pulau Pinang sebagai negeri berkeusahawanan dan negeri berkebajikan yang pertama di Malaysia. Usaha untuk menjadi negeri keusahawanan telah melihatkan kejayaan apabila jumlah pelaburan meningkat sebanyak 90% untuk tempoh 8 tahun daripada 2000-2007 sebanyak RM29 bilion kepada RM55 bilion untuk tempoh 2008-2015.

Selain daripada itu, Kerajaan Negeri melalui Majlis Bandaraya Pulau Pinang (MBPP) dan Majlis Perbandaran Seberang Perai (MPSP) telah bersetuju untuk menanggung sepenuhnya bayaran cukai GST dan pengurangan cukai pintu sebanyak 6% kepada semua hartanah termasuk hartanah komersil. Yang lebih signifikan adalah pemilik rumah kos rendah, rumah kos sederhana rendah dan rumah kampung tidak perlu membayar cukai pintu bagi tahun 2017. Semua pengecualian dan diskaun cukai pintu akan menjimatkan rakyat sebanyak RM55.19 juta.

Marilah kita menuju ke arah mentransformasikan Pulau Pinang yang kita kasihi ini sebagai negeri bertaraf antarabangsa dan pintar yang bersih, hijau, sihat dan selamat.

“Saya Sayang Pulau Pinang”.

Sekian, terima kasih.

LIM GUAN ENG
Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang

RM100 ANNUAL CONTRIBUTION TO THE SENIOR CITIZENS
STARTING FROM 13 MARCH UNTIL 24TH MARCH 2017
Good day!
Since 2008, the Pakatan Harapan government has successfully administered Penang with Competency, Accountability and Transparency (CAT) and earned the trust of the people.

The open tender system practiced by the State Government opened the eyes of many and was praised by Transparency International as the “ first” government in Malaysia to practice such a system.

Annually, the Pakatan Harapan government is repaying the faith of the the people through several ‘Golden Programs’ for senior citizens, disabled persons and single mothers with a RM100 annual grant.

In addition, the state government also provide a one-off payment of RM100 to students in Year 1&4, Form 1&4 and RM1,000 to students at Higher Learning Institutions to ease the financial burden of parents.

The Pakatan Harapan government also provides financial assistance for funeral expenses to the descendants of all the senior citizens, single mothers and disabled persons with a one-time payment of RM1,000.

From 2008 to 2016, the Pakatan Harapan government has disbursed to the people RM412.63 million in financial aid under the ‘Golden Program’ initiative. This has benefited many of the 1.6 million Penangnites.

Equitable Economic Agenda (AES)
The Pakatan Harapan state government has recently introduced the Equitable, Economic, Agenda (AES) program to ensure that every family receives at least RM790 a month.

For example, if a family has 5 members and the household income is less than RM1,000 per month, the family’s per capita income of less than RM220, the state government would provide an “added value” of RM 100 per month.

Pakatan Harapan government is also pleased to be able to record Budget surpluses even without GST charges because of administration and clean leadership based on CAT principles.

This can be seen through the accumulated budget surplus since 2008, totaling RM574 million, which is much larger compared to the budget surplus of the previous BN government of RM373 million from 1957 to 2007

The Pakatan Harapan government will continue efforts to establish Penang as an entrepreneurial state and also the first ‘welfare state’. Under Pakatan, the state has recorded RM55 billion in investments from 2008 to 2015 compared to RM29 billion under BN from 2000 to 2007. This shows the success of our aim to become an entrepreneurial state within eight years.

To ensure the welfare of the people, the Penang Island City Council (MBPP) and the Seberang Perai Municipal Council (MPSP) is absorbing the 6% GST for their services and has reduced assessment rates by 6% for all properties, including commercial properties.

Furthermore, low-cost, low-medium cost and village houses owners will be exempted from paying assessment in 2017. All these measures will enable the people to save a total of RM55.19million in duties.

Let us move towards transforming our beloved Penang to become an international ,intelligent, clean, safe and healthy city.

“I love Penang”.
Thank you.

LIM GUAN ENG
Chief Minister of Penang

2017年乐龄人士回馈金100令吉将于3月13日至24日期间分发

您好。

自2008年开始,槟州希望联盟政府背负着人民的委托,秉持着“能干、公信、透明”(CAT)施政方针,成功执政槟州。槟州政府所实施的公开招标政策让多方大开眼界,更获得国际透明组织赞赏为全马“首个”推行此方案的州属。

每年,槟州政府通过各种福利计划来回馈人民,如乐龄人士、能力差异人士、单亲母亲以及快乐母亲每年将会获得100令吉的回馈金。与此同时,为了减轻父母的负担,在快乐学生计划下、槟州政府发放一次性的100令吉给小一及小四、中一及中四的学生、初生宝贝可获得200令吉、国立大专生新生可获得1000令吉助学金(入学东马大学学生获得额外200令吉);而在乐龄人士、单亲母亲以及能力差异人士往生后,其家属更可获得一次性的1000令吉抚恤金。

从2008年至2016年12月31日,槟州政府为160万槟州人民发放了总数4亿1263万令吉的福利回馈金及学校制度化拨款,这是槟州人民在前朝政府任期内从来没有获得的福利与回馈。

公平经济议程(AES)

另一方面,槟州希望联盟政府也落实“公平经济议程”(AES)政策,以确保州内每户家庭月入达到790令吉。如果一个家庭的人均收入不足220令吉,州政府将会提供辅助使之达到220令吉。举例,如果一个家庭有5个家庭成员,而这个家庭的月入不足1000令吉,这表示每位家庭成员收入不足220令吉,那么政府将会提供每月100令吉的辅助,使到每名家庭成员可以获得220令吉的月入。

以上这些造福人民的福利措施得以实行,主要是因为槟州政府秉持着“能干、公信、透明”(CAT)以及清廉的施政原则,让槟州在不必实施消费税(GST)的情况下依然有财政预算盈余。自2008年迄今,槟州累积的财政预算盈余为5亿7400万令吉,超越前朝政府执政50年(1957年至2007年)所累积的3亿7300万令吉财政盈余。

槟州将继续致力成为全马首个企业及福利州。要把槟州打造成企业州的努力已经看到成果,在2008-2015年之间,槟州共吸引了550亿令吉的投资额,这较2000-2007年的290亿令吉投资额高出90%。

与此同时,槟岛市政厅(MBPP)和威省市政局(MPSP)也将全面承担槟州民众的消费税(GST)并为所有的产业,包括商业单位提供6%的门牌税折扣。为了减轻低低收入家庭的负担,州政府在2017年继续豁免廉价屋、中廉价屋及乡村房子的门牌税。门牌税减免以及豁免的决策总共让槟州人民节省了5519万令吉。

让我们继续与挚爱的槟州一起走向美好的转变之路,让它成为一个具国际等级,以及更清洁、绿意以及安全的州属。

我爱槟城。

林冠英
槟州首席部长

The resignation of the four elected representatives were unexpected because Sim who had been personally handpicked by DAP leader Lim Kit Siang to stand in the 1986 general elections, and again saved by Kit Siang from expulsion from the DAP after Sim stood as an independent in the 2013 general election against the DAP candidate in the Kota Laksamana state seat.
