Unlike MCA, DAP Will Not Permit But Will Take Disciplinary Action Against Any DAP Member Caught Attending Perkasa Functions.(en/cn)

Unlike MCA, DAP will not permit any member to attend Perkasa functions but will take disciplinary action against any DAP member caught doing so. For any Malaysian to attend Perkasa functions not only lends legitimacy to Perkasa’s objectives of reducing non-Malays to 2nd or 3rd class citizens, but also that UMNO’s racial dominance is more important than the critical issues of human rights, corruption and abuse of power.

I will not stoop to the level of MCA President Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek, who has launched personal attacks against me just to avoid answering the question why MCA will not ban but still permit its members and supporters to attend Perkasa’s functions. Today MCA Deputy President Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said in The Star that MCA is still studying the agenda of members attending Perkasa’s functions.

Chua Soi Lek Should Ban MCA Members And Supporters From Attending Perkasa’s Events (en/cn)

Chua Soi Lek Should Ban MCA Members And Supporters From Attending Perkasa’s Events, As Allowing Them To Do So Not Only Proves MCA’s Links With Perkasa But Also Acknowledges Perkasa Has An Important Role To Play Despite Perkasa’s Racist And Extremist Profile Of Being Against non-Muslims And Non-Malays.

DAP is shocked at MCA President Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek’s announcement that MCA will not ban its members and supporters from attending any of Perkasa’s functions. DAP calls on Chua Soi Lek to reverse this irrational and irresponsible decision and instead ban MCA members and supporters from attending Perkasa’s events.

Allowing MCA members and supporters to attend Perkasa’s events not only proves MCA’s links with Perkasa. By doing so, MCA acknowledges Perkasa has an important role to play in Malaysian political life despite Perkasa’s racist and extremist struggle against non-Muslims and non-Malays. Is MCA and Chua so afraid of Perkasa that they dare not even prevent their members from attending Perkasa’s functions?

Kenyataan Akhbar Setiausaha Agung DAP dan Ahli Parlimen Bagan Lim Guan Eng di Kuala Lumpur pada 4.2.2012

Only Pakatan Rakyat(PR) Will Place More Importance On The People’s Health And Public Safety Than The Blind Pursuit Of Profits By Ensuring That There Are No Rare Earths Plants and Nuclear Facility In PR States.(en/bm/cn)

DAP regrets that BN government has shown that it is not committed to green and sustainable growth but instead is willing to sacrifice people’s health for profits. Malaysia’s Atomic Energy Licensing Board (AELB) has granted Australian company Lynas Corporation a temporary operating licence (TOL) for its controversial Pahang-based and also the world largest rare earth refinery plant provided it fulfils five conditions.

Instead of focusing on race and religion, perhaps Barisan Nasional should explain why they are allowing the Lynas Rare Earth Plant in Kuantan to be operated; despite all the dangers inherent and even its regulators themselves did not have a clear radioactive waste disposal proposal from Lynas. Among other issues, the Lynas’ waste management plan does not fully disclose the contents of its waste streams.

The Election Commission Should Recognise that the Local Government Elections Act 1960 (Act 473) Has Been Revised in 1991 and Constitutes the Sole and Only Proper Law Relating to the Election of Local Councillors(en/cn)

The Election Commission (EC) should recognise that the Local Government Elections Act 1960 (Act 473) has been revised in 1991 and constitutes the sole and only proper law relating to the election of local councillors. For this reason, the Penang state government is taking a progressive step-by-step approach towards removing all legal impediments preventing the conduct of local government elections by the EC.

One of the steps that is being taken is the instruction by the Penang State Government to the Penang State Legal Adviser to issue a gazette notification exempting local authorities in Penang from section 15 of the Local Government Act 1976 as a precursor to seeking a court declaration to compel the Election Commission to conduct local government elections.

By Refusing To Criticise The Prime Minister’s Refusal To Condemn Perkasa For Distributing “White Pows” And Not Acting Against MCA Seputih Division Committee Member Dr Tiew Chew Ming, Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek Can No Longer Hide MCA’s Links And UMNO’s Open Support With Perkasa.(en/cn)

By refusing to criticise the refusal of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to condemn Perkasa for distributing “White Pows” and not taking action against MCA Seputih Division Committee Member Dr Tiew Chew Ming, MCA President Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek can no longer hide MCA’s links and UMNO’s open support for Perkasa. What is the use of condemning the racist Perkasa when Chua should also have asked why the Prime Minister Dato Seri Najib did not condemn Perkasa for blatantly trampling over the sensitivities of the Chinese community by distributing white instead of red ang pau during Chinese New Year?

Clearly the Prime Minister’s refusal to condemn Perkasa only proves UMNO’s open support for Perkasa racist objectives in creating their own version of “Asian Apartheid” by wanting to divide Malaysians into favoured “first-class” and discriminated “second-class” citizens. MCA is equally guilty by failing to act sternly against its Sri Desa Branch Chairman and Seputeh division committee member Dr Tiew Chew Ming, who has been exposed as openly assisting Perkasa by ferrying elderly citizens to Perkasa’s event and spoke publicly in defense of Perkasa.

PDC Akan Menjadi Agensi Pelaksana Untuk Tabung Rumah Mampu Milik Sebanyak RM500 Juta Untuk Bina Rumah Mampu Milik Di Seberang Perai Dan Pulau Pinang (bm/cn).

PDC akan menjadi agensi pelaksana untuk Tabung Rumah Mampu Milik sebanyak RM500 juta untuk bina rumah mampu milik di Seberang Perai dan Pulau Pinang.

Jumlah RM500 juta merupakan jumlah yang paling besar diperuntukkan oleh mana-mana kerajaan negeri di Malaysia untuk membina rumah mampu milik. Jumlah wang ini diperolehi daripada pengswastaan Bayan Mutiara secara tender terbuka. Di bawah pentadbiran lama RM600-800 juta wang rakyat dicadangkan dibelanjakan untuk memindahkan pusat pentadbiran baru daripada Komtar ke Bayan Mutiara. Kerajaan baru Pakatan Rakyat telah menolak cadangan ini dan menggantikan dengan cadangan pengswastaan yang tidak perlu membelanjakan wang besar sebalik menambahkan sumber kewangan agar kerajaan negeri boleh menjalankan projek sosial seperti membina rumah mampu milik.

The Failure Of The Prime Minister To Condemn Perkasa For Their Disparaging Gesture Shows How Protective Dato’ Sri Najib Is Of Perkasa Even At The Expense Of Trampling Over The Sensitivities Of The Chinese Community.(en/cn)

To paraphrase a famous quote from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, “The Prime Minister doth protest too much, methinks.”
It would appear that is the case today when Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Najib Tun Razak is trying to fool the public into believing that the use of “white pows” at Perkasa’s Chinese New Year gathering last Sunday has nothing to do with Barisan Nasional.

Najib also said that the incident was a learning experience for race relations in Malaysia. How can Najib dismiss this extremely disrespectful and insensitive gesture so frivolously, when white packets are traditionally used for Chinese funerals? The failure of the Prime Minister to condemn Perkasa for such a disparaging gesture shows how protective Dato’ Sri Najib is of Perkasa even at the expense of trampling over the sensitivities of the Chinese community.

DAP Mengecam Hebat Kepala Babi Yang Dijumpai Di Sebuah Masjid Di Rawang Sebagai Tindakan Pengecut Dan Provokasi Yang Bertujuan Untuk Mengapi-Apikan Sentimen Perkauman Dan Agama Di Ambang Pilihan Raya Umum (bm/en)

Kepala babi yang dijumpai di kawasan pintu masuk Masjid Nurul Iman di Batu 17, Rawang, Selangor merupakan satu tindakan yang tidak sensitif, pengecut dan provokasi yang bertujuan untuk mengapi-apikan sentimen perkauman dan agama di ambang pilihan raya umum.

DAP mengecam hebat insiden ini dan berpendirian bahawa tidak ada ruang di Malaysia bagi tindakan-tindakan yang sia-sia dan menjijikkan seperti ini yang bertentangan dengan sifat masyarakat kita yang aman dan berbilang budaya.

Kami menyeru supaya rakyat Malaysia bertenang dan tidak bertindak balas kerana tindakan ini jelas dilakukan oleh pihak-pihak tertentu dengan motif yang jahat. Namun demikian, mereka tidak akan mencapai objektif jahat mereka kerana rakyat Malaysia bukan sahaja sudah biasa hidup bersama malah suka meraikan kepelbagaian budaya dan agama di negara kita. Keamanan masyarakat kita tidak akan hancur dek tindakan-tindakan pengecut oleh puak pelampau.
