PENGENALAN

Terlebih dahulu, saya ingin merakamkan ucapan berbanyak terima kasih kepada semua pihak termasuk agensi/jabatan Kerajaan Negeri, Kerajaan Persekutuan, NGO, JKKK, agensi swasta dan semua penduduk Pulau Pinang pada 4 dan 5 November 2017 yang telah bertungkus lumus bagi menyelamatkan Pulau Pinang yang mengalami bencana angin ribut kencang banjir terburuk dalam sejarah Negeri Pulau Pinang. Bencana alam yang terjadi ini adalah di luar jangkaan, di mana ia berpunca daripada tiga elemen luar jangka. Pertama, hujan terlalu lebat, setinggi 372mm dicatat dan air banjir naik sampai 10 kaki tinggi tercatat di setengah tempat, iaitu hujan sebanyak sebulan setengah telah turun dalam masa 15 jam sahaja. Kedua, air banjir besar yang turun dari Kedah dan menyebabkan air naik 3 kaki sungguhpun tidak ada hujan di kawasan Seberang Perai selepas 4-5 November 2017. Ketiga, dalam masa yang sama telah berlaku angin kencang yang tidak pernah dilihat di Malaysia, sampai 40 batu sejam sehingga feri boleh ditolak ke darat atas jeti konkrit.

A Democratic, Progressive And Prosperous Malaysia For The Many (e/m/c)

Speech by DAP Secretary General Lim Guan Eng at the DAP National Special Congress on 12 November 2017 at the IDCC Shah Alam, Selangor

Preamble

We, the DAP national delegates, gather here today for our National Special Congress as requested by the Registrar of Societies (ROS) to hold a fresh election for the Central Executive Committee members, once again. We had earlier decided to accept the instructions by the ROS, under protest.

Since the last National Conference on 4th December 2016, we lost two of DAP’s most important national leaders, the former Secretary-General and my university mate Sdr. Kerk Kim Hock and the former Perak Chairman and one of the earliest DAP members Sdr. Lau Dak Kee. Both of them were detained under the Internal Security Act during the Ops Lalang in 1987. Let us pay tribute to Sdr Kerk and Lau for their contributions to the Party and to Malaysia, especially during difficult dark years.

Kenyataan Akhbar Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang Lim Guan Eng Pada 5 November 2017 Di Komtar, George Town.
