呼吁人们让希盟灵活落实竞选承诺,别死脑筋坚持原汁原味宣言


大马希望联盟(希盟)政府主导的国会第一次会议,终于在昨日开始,国会也总算‘无惊无险’地结束了第二天的议程,选出了贤能人士拿督阿里夫担任国会议长,听取了最高元首的御词。虽然议长阿里夫并不是希盟竞选宣言中的所说的‘国会议员’之一,但只要这项委任符合国家的利益,不违宪,不违背希盟的核心宗旨,外界都应该欣然接受。

自从新政府两个月前上台后,许多人都急着要希盟实现竞选宣言中的诺言,并且僵硬地把联盟的竞选宣言奉为不可违抗的‘天条’或‘神谕,虽然我也坚持政府必须信守承诺,但如有必要,他们可以灵活调整,对宣言中的一些承诺进行适时整合,以契合当时的条件,才能更有效地施政。

我个人认为,在这个多元文化、种族和宗教的国家,公共政策的实施都有其时间点和条件,不同的时间点和条件也将构成了不同的效果。倘若我们僵硬看待竞选宣言的承诺和过于侧重‘原汁原味‘,反而更容易误了实现承诺的时机。

审慎落实的框架、实施方案、实施时机和内容都会必须符合当时的条件,否则更容易弄巧反拙。在现实的民主社会,并不是胜者就可以得到‘为所欲为‘的筹码。尽管是承诺,但也不可同一时间百分百落实一切,这就是社会现实,我们必须接受。

我认为,一些承诺是必须或可以作适时调整的,以创造符合时局和时机的条件来落实有关承诺,但必须贴近我们所期待的愿景。

我们身为人民的,应该如理思维;而身为政治人物的,应该善用政治智慧、拿出政治勇气和决心,将承诺落实到位,以及推动深化改革。

除此之外,为了深化体制的改革,国会上议院也必须经历一次重大的改革,淡化上议员委任的政党意识形态的色彩,以便上议院能更有效地监督政府政策和法案的推行。

我希望执政的希盟拿出政治勇气,让上议院拥有更严肃的角色,而不是充当下议院的一块橡胶印。因此,委任更多中立者,就是一个开始,以摒弃守旧的政党路线,赋予上议院新气象。


若上议院进行这一个转变,它肩负的就不是政党的路线,而是追求兑现对选民的承诺。

Happy Birthday Tun, and happy returns to building a top class nation

MP SPEAKS | Today is the 93rd birthday of Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
Let me take this opportunity to publicly wish “Tun, happy 93rd birthday – many happy returns to build a new political legacy of democracy, justice and unity as well as Malaysia as an international top-class nation which is a "beacon of light in a disturbed and distracted world".
Many have kept asking how I could co-operate with Mahathir when in the past, for the best part of my 53 years in politics, we had been at loggerheads – for instance, with me in the opposition while Mahathir was the fourth prime minister for 22 years from 1981 to 2003. I was even detained for 18 months with (Lim) Guan Eng under the Internal Security Act during Ops Lalang, from October 1987 to April 1989.
Malaysia was placed in unparalleled peril under the sixth prime minister Najib Abdul Razak, with Malaysians ashamed to admit that they are Malaysians in the international arena because of the infamy, ignominy and iniquity of becoming a global kleptocracy as a result of the international 1MDB money-laundering scandal, hurtling in the trajectory towards a failed, rogue, kakistocratic and kleptocratic state.
Nobody could be sure that Malaysia could be "saved" from Najib in the 14th general election, but a supreme effort had to be mounted, for we believe that Malaysians who want a clean, just, free, democratic and united Malaysia are more patriotic than Malaysians who are prepared to see Malaysia go down the drain to become a failed state.

A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY GREETING TO YAB TUN DR. MAHATHIR

10TH June 2018.


Many, many, many, many happy returns of the day.

The Nation will definitely pray for YAB’s good health, longevity and also strength to YAB Tun Mahathir for fortunately and unfortunately, YAB Tun Mahathir still have to lead Malaysia.

The Nation will continue to cover YAB Tun Mahathir with our prayers.

We all need you and we love you.

God bless YAB Tun Mahathir and YAB Tun Siti Hasmah.

Long live and “HIDUP YAB TUN MAHATHIR”.

Thank you.


 “HUMBLENESS IS A GOOD VIRTUE, ARROGANCE SHALL FALL AND THE MEEK WILL RULE THE WORLD”.


Tan Sri Datuk Robert Phang Miow Sin.

Justice of the Peace.

社会爱心基金会主席丹斯里拿督彭茂燊太平局绅 呼吁希盟政府、敦马哈迪医生对上议院进行深度改革

呼吁希盟政府、敦马哈迪医生对上议院进行深度改革


换了新政府之后,大家都在期待希望联盟(希盟)政府可以在100天内带来巨大改变,然而,它执政的第一百日已经过了一半,我们仍然无法见到完整的内阁阵容,这正考验新执政联盟组合的精诚合作。

我个人认为必须务实地看待整体改革的问题;它是一项复杂而艰巨的大手术,并非如挤青春痘这般容易。

无论如何,我也希望,在选拔内阁部长的人选时,首相应以选贤与能作为选择根据,而不是为了满足固打需求而委任。我亦衷心希望,希盟的各个成员党都能接受这种遴选方式,才不会辜负大多数人民对新政府的期望。

人民在第14届大选选择了希盟,也意味着大家都渴望看到国家出现新格局。如果新政府依然以党团固打来委任内阁职务,无疑将令我国当今最高行政将陷入了“国阵2.0”的窘境。

希望希盟各员都能够如他们在中选前信誓旦旦所说的,只为人民服务,不为官位。到底是不是真的为大格局着想,服从首相敦马哈迪医生的安排,相信人民很快就会看出真相。我希望他们别让屁股决定他们的脑袋。

随着国会将于716日召开为期20天的会议,也意味着来临的上议院也将进行委任。因新政府上台,这将导致上议院大换血。我也希望,新的政府能够带来新的格局,在上议院委任方面,应避免任人唯亲,为免我国又再一次陷入恶性循环。

我也建议,上议院的委任也不应成为政党“派官位”的配额,而是应多考量委任愿意为国家服务的独立人士,才可以对政府政策起到监督之效。

在过去,在全国大选中落败的人,依然可以凭着上议员委任而晋身内阁部长一职,当时都被称为“后门部长”。如今,换了新政府,我们也拭目以待,是否会有后门部长重现。


上议院的功能在多年来一直备受争议,因此,它需要一个深度的改革,才能有效发挥作用。而我个人强烈认为,上议院议员的委任,不应该成为败选人士的“安慰奖”。这就是改革的第一步,希望首相敦马哈迪医生明鉴。

Najib accuses Guan Eng of 'outright lies' over TRX project

Former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak had accused Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng of spreading "half-truths and outright lies" over the Tun Razak Exchange project (above).

This was after Lim said Putrajaya was forced to fork out RM2.8 billion to bail-out the project to ensure that it does not fail.
"While I am happy that the government has now decided to continue with the TRX project which will bring tens of thousands of new jobs and establish a world-class financial centre right here in Kuala Lumpur, I want to point out that Lim has been spreading half-truths and outright lies in his statement today about TRX City Sdn Bhd (TRXC), the owner of the 70 acres and 486 acres in the TRX and Bandar Malaysia land and projects respectively.
"Lim himself admits that even with a further 'up to' RM2.8 billion injection by Minter of Finance (MOF) Inc, the TRX project will be worth at least RM7.8 billion and show a profit.
"Surely it cannot be called a bail-out if the money is to be used to generate a profit?" he posed in a statement today.
Najib said MOF Inc's takeover of TRXC for a nominal sum of RM1 on March 31, 2017, from 1MDB was necessary for the latter's rationalisation plan.
He added that following the takeover of MOF Inc, it assumed the payment of certain 1MDB liabilities from April 1, 2017.

Suara Rakyat Adalah Paling Penting Berikutan Kerajaan Adalah Dipilih Oleh Rakyat
