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.

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 Without Any Outstanding Debt Arrears?(e/m/c)

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?

The Penang International Airport Should Be Expanded To At Least Double Its Present Capacity Of 6.5 Million Passengers To More Than 13 Million Passengers, With 6.7 Million Passengers Recorded In 2016, And Growing By A Further 8.7% For The First 5 Months Of 2017.(e/c)

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Komtar, George Town On 3.8.2017.

The Penang state government welcomes the assurances by Finance Minister 2 Datuk Seri Johari Abdul Ghani a few days ago, that the Federal government will look at how to expand the Penang International Airport(PIA). We agree with Johari that the PIA has exceeded its present capacity of 6.5 million passengers, with 6.7 million passengers recorded in 2016, four years ahead of the scheduled 2020.

For the first 5 months of 2017, passenger movements grew by 8.7 % and is expected to exceed 7 million passengers by end 2017. For this reason, the Penang state government proposes that the PIA be doubled in size with a capacity that exceeds 13 million passengers, to take into account the strong growth rate driven by high tourist numbers. Failure to do so will make PIA heavily congested until PIA may be known as Penang International Pasar Malam instead.

Abdul Rahman Dahlan Is So Desperately Jealous Of Penang State Government’s Remarkable Success In Being The Only State In Malaysia To Have Zero Outstanding Debt Payment Arrears That He Attempts To Claim Credit That The Federal Government Is Responsible For The Reduction In Penang State Debts.(e/m/c)

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 3.8.2017.

Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan is unfit to be a Minister in the Prime Minister Department not only because he previously chickened out of his own challenge to debate with me, but now has shown to be so desperately jealous of the Penang state government’s sterling financial performance. Abdul Rahman Dahlan is so desperately jealous of Penang state government’s remarkable success in being the only state in Malaysia to have zero outstanding debt payment arrears that he attempts to claim credit that the Federal government is responsible for the reduction in state debts.

Is Abdul Rahman green with envy because Penang’s success in debt reduction and zero debt payment arrears could not be emulated by the Federal government, which instead saw an astonishing increase of RM 147 billion in 5 years from RM 501.6 billion in 2012 to RM 648.5 billion in 2016? This Federal government debt would have exceeded RM800 billion if contingent liabilities in the form of Federal government guarantees and support letters were included.

Condemns The Star For Not Respecting Freedom of the Press By Fully Publishing My Reply To Joceline Tan’s Column On 30 July 2017. This violates a fundamental principle of Freedom of The Press Namely A Right Of Reply. In the public interest, I will release my reply in full to allow the true story to emerge on the so-called controversy over the “50, Love Lane” property.(e/c)

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Komtar, George Town On 2.8.2017.

The Star’s Joceline Tan typically mixes her usual staple of innuendo with half-truths to cast a negative light against the Penang state government in her Sunday column on 30 July 2017 under the heading, “Political standoff over 50, Love Lane”. The so-called controversy revolves around the refusal of the Penang Chinese Clans Association (PCCA) to obey the rule of law, in the transfer of the property at 50, Love Lane.

PCCA Chairman Chang Wei Lu has instead chosen the road of public confrontation against the state government, even though the state government has fully fulfilled its promises to transfer the property for a land premium set at a nominal sum of RM1. Such public confrontation and attack against the state government may not be surprising, when those who are openly pro-BN are also in PCCA, such as PCCA deputy president Lim Mee Lee.

槟州政府欢迎迟到了一年半的2016年度国民型华文中学特别拨款,但是,对于联邦政府只拨195万令吉给州内的12所华文中学感到失望不已。

槟州首席部长林冠英于2017年8月1日在光大乔治市发表文告:

槟州政府于2017年除了拨出122万8000令吉的制度化拨款,还另加85万令吉的首长特别拨款,单单这一年,州内的华中就已获得207万8000令吉的拨款。

然而,预算案是州政府270倍的联邦政府却只能拨给州内华中195万令吉,数额还少过州政府,这真的说不过去! Continue reading ‘槟州政府欢迎迟到了一年半的2016年度国民型华文中学特别拨款,但是,对于联邦政府只拨195万令吉给州内的12所华文中学感到失望不已。’
