Chua Soi Lek Should State Which Seat He Is Standing In The Next General Elections (en/cn)

Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 18.1.2012

Chua Soi Lek Should State Which Seat He Is Standing In The Next General Elections So That We Can See His Response If DAP Does A “Liow Tiong Lai Act” By Declaring Confidence Of Beating Chua.

MCA President Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek should state which seat he is contesting in the next general elections so that we can see his response if DAP does a “Liow Tiong Lai act” by declaring confidence in defeating Chua. DAP is not interested in playing the boastful games of MCA, when the only one making political challenges is the MCA and not DAP.

I wish to remind MCA President Chua Soi Lek that MCA’s Health Minister Liow Tiong Lai is the only one who issued a political challenge by boasting that MCA is confident of winning my present parliamentary seat of Bagan. When asked by Malaysian Insider I said that,

“I will not comment further on Liow’s challenge unless Liow Tiong Lai himself or MCA Vice-President and Penang MCA Chair Ng Yen Yen is contesting in Bagan. Let Liow continue his boastful remarks. I will not indulge in MCA’s boastful games as I wish to focus on serving the voters in my constituency and the people of Penang.”

Unlike MCA, DAP has not engaged in political games by boasting we will win or beat Liow in Bentong or Ng Yen Yen in Raub. Only MCA is making all these boasts. We therefore hope that Chua Soi Lek will stop deceiving the public on this matter. Will Chua Soi Lek dare to announce which seat he is contesting, then let me go to that constitutency and repeat Liow’s remarks that we are confident of defeating Chua then see how Chua will respond?

This is not the first time that the MCA President has failed to keep his promise, during his political comeback after his resignation for personal reasons, that he will not again deceive the people especially those around him. Chua had lied of PR and DAP mismanaging the financial administration of Penang resulting in budget deficits.

This is typical of MCA’s deceptive politics where black becomes white and white become black. Penang has no budget deficits but had recorded budget surpluses every year for the four years we are in power, certified by the Auditor-General Report. In fact Penang remains the only state in Malaysia to be praised by Transparency International for our efforts in implementing open tender to battle corruption.

民主行动党秘书长兼巴眼区国会议员林冠英于2012年1月18日:

蔡细历应该讲清楚,来届大选他将在哪一个议席上阵,这样我们才可以知道,如果行动党像廖中莱那样表演,宣布有信心打败蔡细历,他会有什么反应。

马华总会长拿督斯里蔡细历应该讲清楚,来届大选他将在哪一个议席上阵,这样我们才可以知道,如果行动党像廖中莱那样表演,宣布有信心打败蔡细历,他会有什么反应。行动党没有兴趣像马华那样自己讲自己爽,而一直在挑战政治对手的是马华,不是行动党。

我要提醒马华总会长蔡细历,马华卫生部长廖中莱是唯一一个向政治对手发出挑战、自吹自夸说有信心在我目前的巴眼国会议席取胜。当《马来西亚内幕者》访问我时,我说:“我不会评论廖中莱下的挑战,除非廖中莱自己或马华副总会长兼槟州主席黄燕燕要来巴眼竞选。就让廖中莱继续自己讲自己爽吧。我对马华的游戏没有兴趣,我希望把焦点放在我的选区及槟州人民。”

行动党不像马华,我们没有说我们会在文冬打败廖中莱胜出、或在劳勿打败黄燕燕胜出。只有马华一直在吹牛。我希望蔡细历不要再欺骗公众。蔡细历敢不敢公布他要上阵的议席,然后让我去那个选区,像廖中莱那样说“我们有信心打败蔡细历”,看看蔡细历怎么回应?

这不是第一次马华总会长无法兑现他的诺言,在他因私人理由辞职后,他再也骗不了人民,特别是他身边的人。蔡细历也说谎,指民联和行动党治理的槟城财务管理不当,导致预算赤字。

这就是典型的马华欺骗政治,黑的可以讲成白的,白的也可以讲成黑的。槟城不但没有预算赤字,我们还连续四年取得预算盈余,总稽查司也认同这一点。事实上,目前为止,槟城还是唯一因实施公开招标、打击贪污而被国际透明组织称赞的州属。
