llegal placing of party flags // 非法安插党旗




国州议会的五年任期即满,因此每个人都期待第13届大选会很快的到来。 由于目前沙巴州的情况,大家都在猜测国会何时将会解散,或许将会延迟。 但是无论大选是在何时,某些政党已急不及待在选区内安插或悬挂其党旗,以吸引选民。 亚庇国会议员邱庆洲特别助理李志强想知道为何亚庇市政厅有执法偏差的行为,尤其是他们言行不一致。 李氏指出,某些政党如国阵和其他反对党可以自由的安插其党旗在市内不同的地点,列如在丽都,甘拜园,和生园和达迈等地方。 李氏联络了亚庇市政厅有关事件,并且被告知任何政党必须要申请准证才可以安插其党旗在市内或其他地点。市政厅还清楚的表示说,如果任何政党不遵守法令,非法的安插其党旗,有关当局将会没收该党旗,同时当场将发出罚票。 此外李氏指出党旗是不适合被安插在住宅区,尤其不应该绑在马路指示牌。


As the five year term expires, everyone is expecting the 13 GE to be called on very soon. However, the wondering game is now on whether parliament would be dissolve or not by observing the current situation here in Sabah. It is election mood or not, certain political parties had decided to put up party flags at strategic locations as campaign tools for the coming general election. Andrew Lee, Special Assistant to Kota Kinabalu MP is questioning on why DBKK is bias in enforcing laws. DBKK does not practice what it preaches. This is referring to certain political parties displaying party flags and putting them up at several locations such as Lido, Kepayan, Foh Sang and Damai etc... . Andrew was made to understand by DBKK that all political parties must apply a permit to put up their respective party flags in the city. They clearly say that it is against the law if these parties do not abide by the law and putting up their flags illegally. These flags will be confiscated on the spot and a fine will be imposed to these law breakers. Andrew said that these party flags are not suitable to be placed at residential areas. Party flags are seen tied up at road sign boards which are eye soar.


SAPP flags are seen at almost in every part of Kota Kinabalu City, including residential area and yet DBKK is not taking any action. These flags had been put up for almost seven to eight months now. Andrew was made to understand by DBKK enforcement that SAPP did not at any time apply for a permit to put up their party flags. Why there is a double standard treatment?

Why is DBKK being bias and ignorant? The members of the public do not want to see such irresponsible actions. Andrew urges DBKK to be more responsible and at the same time to portray professionalism in serving the public.

非法安插党旗

国州议会的五年任期即满,因此每个人都期待第13届大选会很快的到来。 由于目前沙巴州的情况,大家都在猜测国会何时将会解散,或许将会延迟。 但是无论大选是在何时,某些政党已急不及待在选区内安插或悬挂其党旗,以吸引选民。 亚庇国会议员邱庆洲特别助理李志强想知道为何亚庇市政厅有执法偏差的行为,尤其是他们言行不一致。 李氏指出,某些政党如国阵和其他反对党可以自由的安插其党旗在市内不同的地点,列如在丽都,甘拜园,和生园和达迈等地方。 李氏联络了亚庇市政厅有关事件,并且被告知任何政党必须要申请准证才可以安插其党旗在市内或其他地点。市政厅还清楚的表示说,如果任何政党不遵守法令,非法的安插其党旗,有关当局将会没收该党旗,同时当场将发出罚票。 此外李氏指出党旗是不适合被安插在住宅区,尤其不应该绑在马路指示牌。

如今沙进步党的党旗几乎可以在亚庇市各地方看得到,包括住宅区内,但是亚庇市政厅迄今没有采取任何行动去对付那些安插超过七,八个月的党旗。 亚庇市政厅执法人员告诉李氏说,沙进步党从来没有申请任何准证以安插其党旗。 不知是否该党获得特别待遇,因此其党旗是不会被执法人员取下来。 为何会有双重标准的做法呢? 这必须要停止,而且亚庇市政厅官员必须要立即采取行动。

从这事件可以清楚的看到,亚庇市政厅高职官员必须言行一致,不能有偏差。 市民不希望看到这种情况的发生,希望亚庇市政厅能够纠正该问题。李氏敦促亚庇市政厅应该一视同仁,并且提供专业的服务。
