Debate should be allowed to proceed in the spirit of healthy democratic engagement and the interests of “seeking truth from facts”

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister and DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 11.4.2016.

Whilst I respect views expressed by certain parties that this debate on Taman Manggis or any other topic between Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Minister Abdul Rahman Dahlan and myself should be cancelled, this debate should be allowed to proceed in the spirit of healthy democratic engagement and the interests of “seeking truth from facts”.

Let me reiterate that Abdul Rahman had challenged me to a debate on last Wednesday. I had immediately accepted on Thursday and on Friday evening he happily said he “can’t wait”. After stating he “can’t wait”, he surprised everyone by suddenly saying later on Friday that he was flying off overseas and would only be back on the 15th April.

促请马华和民政党交代,他们在昨天的内阁会议有没有提出承认统考文凭动议?结果如何?他们在内阁会议里睡觉、还是协商后“点头”同意不承认统考文凭?

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2016年4月7日于吉隆坡发表声明:

我们促请马华和民政党交代,是否在昨天内阁会议阐明独中统考符合国情,没有违反国家主权的立场。国阵有没有在昨天内阁会议讨论承认统考文凭以及结果如何?马华和民政党在内阁会议里睡觉、还是协商后“点头”同意不承认统考文凭?

如果马华和民政党在内阁里没有提到承认独中统考事项,却通过媒体大大声喊话,那也只是讲一套,做一套的帮凶而已。这些部长应该向华社道歉,他们在统考文凭课题上虎头蛇尾,在外面像英雄,在内阁里却像狗熊。我们对于他们无法叫卡马拉纳登撤回关于“统考涉及国家主权”的言论感到遗憾。如果两位马华部长连叫国大党副部长道歉都做不到,要他们怎样面对巫统呢?现在,他们应该明白,为什么华社对马华如此失望,因为他们支持腐败的巫统,为了官职连尊严都不要。 Continue reading “促请马华和民政党交代,他们在昨天的内阁会议有没有提出承认统考文凭动议?结果如何?他们在内阁会议里睡觉、还是协商后“点头”同意不承认统考文凭?”

Kerajaan negeri Pulau Pinang berasa kecewa bahawa Kementerian Pengangkutan hanya akan mengemukakan permohonan peruntukan untuk membesarkan Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa Pulau Pinang(LTAPP) di bawah Rolling Plan Kedua(m/c)

Kenyataan Akhbar Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang dan Ahli Parlimen Kawasan Bagan Lim Guan Eng di Komtar, George Town Pada 7.4.2016.

Ini bermakna bahawa Kementerian Pengangkutan hanya akan memohon pada tahun depan untuk menaiktaraf LTAPP.

PERDA Masih Tidak Jawab Dalam Skandal Kerugian RM15.2 Juta Dalam Penjualan Tanah Mengapa Mereka Tidak Jalankan Tender Terbuka Dan Menolak Taksiran Nilai Tanah Sebanyak RM16.6 Juta Oleh Kerajaan Persekutuan?(m/c)

Kenyataan Akhbar Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang Lim Guan Eng Di Komtar, George Town Pada 5.4.2016.

PERDA masih tidak jawab dalam skandal kerugian RM15.2 juta dalam penjualan tanah, mengapa mereka tidak jalankan tender terbuka dan juga menolak taksiran nilai tanah sebanyak RM16.6 juta oleh kerajaan persekutuan. PERDA telah menjual 8.6 ekar tanah di KADUN Sungei Acheh, Nibong Tebal, pada 2015 dengan harga RM1.4 juta sungguhpun nilaian oleh Lembaga Hasil Dalam Negeri(LHDN) adalah RM16.6 juta.

Pengerusi PERDA Datuk Seri Shabudin Yahaya nampaknya tidak mahu terima hakikat kerugian RM15.2 juta dialami dalam penjualan tanah ini dengan menyatakan penilaian oleh kerajaan persekutuan sebanyak RM16.6 juta hanya untuk tanah di sekitar dan bukan untuk tanah ini. Apakah asas beliau menolak taksiran oleh kerajaan persekutuan ini?

Statement On UEC(独中统考)

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2016年4月4日于吉隆坡发表声明:

在朝的马华如果真的比火箭更关心独中及统考,他们应该马上叫国阵承认统考文凭,制度化拨款给独中,让统考生也有机会进入本地大学,以及在政府部门服务。

马华总会长兼卫生部长拿督斯里廖中莱不需要和火箭比较谁比较关注独中,否则他又在自打嘴巴。槟州政府不像马华那样,用几十年的时间,劳烦不同的总会长和华教人士开会讨论是否承认统考文凭,而是直接在州政府的权限范围内,为独中生开路,让我们的属下子公司,承认统考文凭为录取资格。 Continue reading “Statement On UEC(独中统考)”

Why Not Abolish Talent Corporation? Why Sign On The Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement(TPPA) If Living Overseas Is Unpatriotic? Those Really Unpatriotic Are The Corrupt And Those That Defend Corruption!(e/c)

Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 3.4.2016.

DAP condemns Umno supreme council member and Deputy Minister Datuk Tajuddin Abdul Rahman for criticising Malaysians who live overseas as “unpatriotic”. If that is the case why not abolish Talent Corp., that was established to attract back talented Malaysians home?

It is corruption and those who defend corruption, not those living overseas, that is unpatriotic. Malaysia has suffered from corruption as shown by the RM42 billion 1MDB scandal, RM2.6 billion donation scandal, the cows and condos scandal, the RM107 million corruption scam in the Youth & Sports Ministry and the shocking RM52 billion missing bumis shares scandal. These financial scandals have caused huge losses to the country losses resulting in the imposition of the GST and the 30% depreciation in the ringgit.

马华总会长兼卫生部长拿督斯里廖中莱应该解释,内阁会议在讨论及断定独中统考破坏国家利益和主权,他和首相署部长魏家祥当时在内阁会议睡觉吗?马华的“协商精神”再一次让全体华社受伤!

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2016年4月1日于吉隆坡发表声明:

廖中莱今天要求教育部副部长卡马拉纳登撤会“承认统考文凭涉及国家主权”的国会作答,他又在自讲自爽。卡马拉纳登于3月29日在国会指出,联邦政府不承认统考其中一个理由是因为“承认统考文凭涉及国家主权”。他指出,内阁于2015年11月6日有关政府并不会承认统考文凭的议决案后。

卡马拉纳登的国会回答也揭穿首相署魏家祥在2015年11月18日声称内阁答应重启商讨承认统考文凭的谎言。现在,全国独中董事会、校长、老师、统考生有权利知道,国阵政府是如何看待他们在这个国家的地位和权利? Continue reading “马华总会长兼卫生部长拿督斯里廖中莱应该解释,内阁会议在讨论及断定独中统考破坏国家利益和主权,他和首相署部长魏家祥当时在内阁会议睡觉吗?马华的“协商精神”再一次让全体华社受伤!”
