60th Anniversary Merdeka Message (e/m/c)

60th Anniversary Merdeka Message By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 30 August 2017.

Malaysians Should Be Both Political Lifechangers And Economic Gamechangers To Reclaim Our Merdeka Promise As A Nation With A Heart That Loves Each Other, Values Principles And Upholds Our Fundamental Rights In The Federal Constitution.

As we celebrate our 60th Merdeka anniversary, whilst we remember the victorious struggle over the British colonialists, the struggle continues more urgently to establish, in the words Bapa Malaysia Tunku Abdul Rahman, “a new nation inspired by the ideals of justice and liberty”.

双溪里武华小风波不只是一个民主问题,因为不让人民一州之长拜访学校,也是因为联邦政府没有尽本分,无法给足够的发展拨款和合时的分配,反而要学校等到一年后才拿到钱。

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员于2017年8月28日在吉隆坡发表的文告

双溪里武华小风波不只是一个民主问题,因为不让人民一州之长拜访学校,也是因为联邦政府没有尽本分,无法给足够的发展拨款和合时的分配,反而要学校等到一年后才拿到钱。简直是讲到没做到,钱迟迟到,不像槟州希望联盟政府,讲到做到钱马上到。

教育部副部长张盛闻允许政治人物巫统峇东埔区会主席在春节到华小派红包与学生拉布条合照,却不允许民选国州议员和首席部长进入学校移交拨款,还要我们放过学校,证明他才政治化教育,不关心华教发展,只关心本身政治前途。

Speech by Chief Minister of Penang At The Launching of Penang STEM (e/c)

Today marks an important chapter for Penang State Government in our effort to cultivate Science and Technology to encourage and awareness of Industry 4.0. I’m proud to be launching the island version of Penang STEM after having launched the mainland version last week with much success.

Klaus Schwab, the Chairman of World Economic Forum issues a warning that Industry 4.0 is fundamentally different from previous revolutions. It is not just a change in digital technology. It is a fusion of technologies and their interaction across the physical, digital and biological domains. It will fundamentally change the way we work and the way we live.

BN Should Declare That They Would Demolish All Illegal Structures And Hawkers in Penang To Allow The People To Decide Who Is Right And Has No Shame.(e/c)

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Komtar, George Town On19.8.2017.

Gerakan President Datuk Seri Mah Siew Keong should remember that all the false and favourable reports in the BN-controlled media did not save Gerakan from losing all its Penang seats in both the 2008 and 2013 general elections. To blame the Pakatan state government for the problem of illegal structures, hawkers, Chinese and Hindu temples, churches and factories(or illegal situation) ignores the fact that they existed before 2008 and was a sad legacy of BN’s weak and indecisive leadership.

This was admitted today by BN Penang Chairman Teng Chang Yeow that the illegal situation was a result of development during 50 years of BN’s rule of Penang. Teng did not deny that Barisan National failed to solve the problem but like Mah Siew Keong, refused to say whether they agreed with Pakatan’s solution. When Pakatan took over the Penang State government in 2008 we were forced to deal with this legacy of illegal situation inherited from Barisan National.

Kerajaan negeri Pulau Pinang buat masa kini tidak berhasrat menukar dasar lama berkaitan dengan bangunan haram, penjaja haram, tokong haram, kuil haram, gereja haram, kilang haram dan rumah kediaman haram yang di bina atau diusahakan sebelum 8 Mac 2008 di Pulau Pinang. (m/c)

Kenyataan Akhbar Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang Lim Guan Eng Di Komtar, George Town Pada 13.8.2017.

Kerajaan negeri Pulau Pinang buat masa kini tidak berhasrat menukar dasar lama berkaitan dengan bangunan haram, penjaja haram, tokong haram, kuil haram, gereja haram, kilang haram dan rumah kediaman haram yang di bina atau diusahakan sebelum 8 Mac 2008 di Pulau Pinang. Ini berikutan Ahli EXCO Kerajaan Negeri untuk Kebajikan, Masyarakat Penyayang dan Alam Sekitar Phee Boon Poh ditahan oleh Suruhanjaya Pencegah Rasuah Malaysia(SPRM) kerana didakwa menulis dua pucuk surat yang meminta tindakan penguatkuasaan ditangguhkan sehingga satu penyelesaian yang baik kepada semua pihak boleh dicapai.

Memang menjadi dasar kerajaan negeri Pakatan sejak ditubuhkan pada 2008 untuk tidak mengambil tindakan kepada semua bangunan, kilang atau penjaja haram yang beroperasi sebelum 8 Mac 2008 dengan syarat ia tidak menghalang laluan trafik ataupun mengganggu orang awam. Sebaliknya, kerajaan negeri akan cuba cari penyelesaian untuk semua pihak termasuk program pemutihan.

Eulogy of Kerk Kim Hock (e/m/c)

Eulogy of Kerk Kim Hock By Penang Chief Minister, DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 10.8.2017.

Kerk Kim Hock Is A True Malaysian Patriot Who Was Faithful To His Family And Friends, As He Was Faithful To The Party And Its Principles.

Kerk Kim Hock left us on 9th August 2017, after slipping into 3 day coma, following complications from surgery on Sunday. His passing shocked everyone, as he looked healthy and well on his way to recovery. He had made a 61st birthday wish recently to live until 70 years old. DAP extends our deepest condolences to his family. Their loss is not just a personal loss, not just a loss to DAP but also a great loss to the nation and Malaysians, especially to those in Melaka.

Even doubling the expansion of the Penang International Airport(PIA) to a capacity of 13 million passengers will not last till 2025.

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Komtar, George Town On 6.8.2017.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Abdul Rahman Dahlan should take a crash course in accounting when he claimed that the Penang state government’s debts would have tripled if the Federal government had not intervened. How can Penang State Government’s debts triple if the water debts and assets amounting to RM655 million had not migrated to the Federal government, when Penang has currently the lowest debts in the country at RM65 million and is the only state in Malaysia without any outstanding debt arrears?
