Transformation Program not achieved // 转型计划已失败



不久前首相纳吉说,他在等待着他的“转型计划”成功实现后,才会举行第13届大选。 现在他宣布他的‘转型计划’目标已达到。 这听起来我国首相好像是位“魔术师”,而且他希望马来西亚人要相信他。

实际上纳吉的转型计划仍然没有达成,以下有很好的例子来证明这一点:-


Not long ago, the Prime Minister Najib said that he was waiting for his “Transformation Plans” to be achieved before he calls for the 13th General Elections, and now he has announced the objectives of the Transformation Program were achieved. Looking at it he sounds more like a “magician” than a Prime Minister, and he expected Malaysians to believe him.


Najib’s Transformation Programs are still not being achieved, and here are few good examples:-

  • In Sabah, the people’s living standards have not improved very much. This is evident by the World Bank Report in that Sabah is among the poorest states in Malaysia today as compared with among the richest states in the 60’s and 70’s.
  • More than 100,000 Sabahans are currently jobless. Over 1.2 million Malaysians including Sabahans are working and residing overseas, including those who had migrated.
  • The majority of Sabahans are earning below the minimum income level of RM800. What is the use of the Federal government boasting that the gross national income from RM802.50 in 1957 to RM31,000 in 2012?
  • On average, every Sabahan family spends more than 60% of their household incomes on mortgage loans, car loans and on the repayment of other debts. There is very little left for other expenses or even saving. This is due to the prevailing low economic situation whereby earning extra Ringgit is a real problem. The promise “high personal income nation” remains as NATO (No Action Talk Only).
  • BR1M 2.0 voucher recipients involving 5.369 million families earning less than RM3,000 (US$950) family income is a very good indication that we are very far from achieving a developed nation status by 2020. An average family would be four – husband, wife and two children. The per capita income for a developed nation status is US$15,000.
  • The purchasing power of the Malaysian Ringgit had fallen drastically from Singapore or Brunei $1.00 = RM1.00 in the 70’s to S/B$1.00 = RM2.53 present value. A Malaysian earning RM1,000 would have the equivalent of S/B$400 today. Does this explain why the prices of goods are going sky high? We have not even included inflation in the equation.
  • The Sabah economy is not vibrant enough to generate sufficient business and job opportunities for Sabahans despite the acclaimed huge state reserves. There is the lack of vertical integration (downstream spin-offs) of local resources-based industries to create value-added economic activities.
  • The revenues derived from the Sabah main exported commodities such as petroleum and palm oil benefited only the big oil companies and the big plantation owners and oil millers (in West Malaysia and the Government Link Companies). The small holders did not benefit much. The earned revenue has been siphoned out of Sabah and the poor Sabahans were given the least benefits derived from their own soil. Even worst still, the bulk of the taxes collected from petroleum, palm oil industries and the plantation in Sabah are for the Federal coffer.
  • The high costs of utilities, transportation charges, shipping and port handling charges have contributed to the high cost of living in Sabah and it is among the highest in Malaysia. Besides that, the importation of raw material, finished products, food stuffs, consumer goods and supplies, including our daily bowl of rice had further aggravated the situation.
  • The security in Sabah is sounding an alarm after so many incidents involving foreigners, and now is in the worst case with the Lahad Datu Sulu intrusion. Requests and suggestions from districts police chiefs had been continuously ignored by the Federal government.
  • The major projects planned under the Malaysia Plans were not completed as planned. For example, only RM6.8 billion or 12,568 projects (46.3%) of the RM17 billion or 27,120 projects were completed under the 9th Malaysia Plan. What happened to the 53.7% of the projects?
  • The influx of illegal immigrants has overwhelmed the local Sabah population – the local population is estimated 1.5 million compared with 1.7 million of immigrants (legal and illegal). This had caused many social ills such as crimes, intrusion, rape, robberies, etc.
  • The elections results had for many years been rigged because of the presence of phantom voters and the government had been hanging on to power by dubious means as proven by the RCI on illegal immigrants and particularly the 1999 Likas state election involving Yong Teck Lee which had caused him his job.
  • Dr Mahathir blaming government officers for “abuse of power” in the issuance of “Project IC” to illegal immigrants. As Chief Executive of Malaysia, he was ignorant and unaware of the facts that hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants became Malaysians “new Bumiputra” overnight, were eligible to vote and have Bumiputra rights.
  • Hospitals, medical and health care; agriculture and food security; education system; housing; infrastructure projects such as roads, only 38.9% in Sabah are sealed road as compared to 90% in West Malaysia. The electricity, water, flood, telecommunication and internet services in Sabah are all lacking compared to West Malaysia.
  • The non-performance, non-conformance and failure on executions of development policies and projects is serious.

All the transformation programs would be meaningless when the economic pie is shared and distributed unevenly. The poor will still remain poor and getting the crumbs of RM500 from the government, insufficient to sustain a month of family expenses. Only “cronies” of politicians and the well connected benefit e.g. suppliers, contractors, favored parties and individuals. Corruption and abuses of power are at their peak and the situation does not seem to be reduced. Thus, we do not see any positive transformation achievement as yet, and that is why Najib still hesitate to dissolve the Parliament.

转型计划已失败

不久前首相纳吉说,他在等待着他的“转型计划”成功实现后,才会举行第13届大选。 现在他宣布他的‘转型计划’目标已达到。 这听起来我国首相好像是位“魔术师”,而且他希望马来西亚人要相信他。

实际上纳吉的转型计划仍然没有达成,以下有很好的例子来证明这一点:-

  • 沙巴州的人民生活水平并没有多大的改善。这是根据世界银行的报告指出,如果与6070年代其富裕的情况相比,显而易见的是沙巴州是马来西亚的贫穷州属。
  • 超过10万的沙巴人目前面对失业问题。超过120万的马来西亚人,包括沙巴人跑到海外工作和居住,同时也包括移民。
  • 大部分沙巴人的收入是低于最低薪金马币八百的收入水平。 联邦政府试图从1957年国民总收入的RM802.50提升至2012年的总收入RM31,000,但是有做到吗? 问题是在水涨船高,到头来还是等于零。
  • 沙巴的家庭平均要花60%的收入来支付各种贷款,偿还其他债务以及购买家庭日常用品。因此剩下的收入很少,甚至不能有储蓄。 这是由于国家的经济状况不佳,想要赚取额外的钱都有困难。 政府承诺要打造“个人有高收入的国家”显然只是‘有说没做’而已。
  • 第二次的大马援助金发给了五百多万户家庭,他们都是收入不到马币三千的家庭,这清楚表明我们是远远的落后,并且是无法在2020年达到发展中的国家的高收入水平。 一个普通家庭包括丈夫,妻子和两个孩子, 如果是在发展中的国家的高收入水平,他们平均收入应该是USD15,000
  • 马来西亚令吉的汇率急剧下降,以前与新加坡和汶莱的钱币相比是一对一,而70年代与一块新币/汶莱钱则是1RM2.53。 但是今天马来西亚人所赚取的一千令吉等于新币/汶莱钱的四百块。这就可以解释为何商品价格会高涨?这还甚至不包括通货膨胀的计算。
  • 沙巴州的经济缓慢,因此无法产生足够的造业和就业机会给沙巴人,尽管大家认为沙州有庞大的国家储备金。 实际上沙州缺乏本地资源为基本下游产业来打造和推动经济发展。
  • 至于沙巴州主要出口的原料如石油,棕油的收入只让国油公司和大园主(西马公司)受益。 本地的小园主并没有获得多大的好处。 大部分的天然资源和其他的收入被抽出沙巴州,导致沙巴人无法从自己的国土获得益处。最糟糕的是大部分沙巴石油,棕油园的税收都归入联邦财库。
  • 昂贵的运输费,航运和港口装卸费导致沙巴的生活成本提高,并且在马来西亚的州属中生活费最高的一州。 此外沙巴进口许多原料, 成品,食品,消费品和日常用品,包括我们每天吃的白米,这更加促使其经济状况进一步的恶化。
  • 沙巴州的安全警钟早已敲响了,尤其经过这么多的事件,现在最糟糕的处境是拿笃被苏绿军入侵。 那是由于联邦政府忽略人民的要求和建议设立地方警局。
  • 大马计划中的许多大型发展项目并没有按计划完成。例如根据第九大马计划,政府拨出马币一百七十亿来推动27,120发展工程,但是迄今只完成了耗费六十八亿令吉的12,568项工程而已,是总工程计划的46.3%。 其余53.7%的工程项目出了什么问题呢?
  • 非法移民的大量涌入沙巴州,超越了真正的沙巴人口, 本地人口约有一百五十万,而外来移民有一百七十万(包括合法和非法的)。 这已引起许多社会问题如犯罪,入侵,强奸,抢劫等。
  • 连续多年来大选的结果一直被操纵着,因为选民册出现许多幽灵选民,让国阵能够执政,尤其是皇委会已经证明了非法移民获得公民权,特别是在1999年里卡士州选举揭发了幽灵选民事件,让杨德利没了官位。
  • 马哈迪指责政府官员‘滥用权力’透过Project IC而发出身份证给非法移民。当年作为马来西亚行政长官,他是不可能不知道数十万名非法移民成为马来西亚人和“新土著”,并且拥有投票资格和土著权。
  • 医院,医疗,保健,农业和粮食保障,教育体系,房屋等,基本设施如道路,如果与西马相比沙巴州只有38.9%是柏油路,他们则有90%是柏油路, 此外沙巴州水电供,防洪系统,电信和互联网服务都很缺乏。
  • 沙州许多整体方面的发展都很缺乏,这都归于国阵没有履行其职责,他们有好多的失败发展政策,都归无效率的执政和管理所导致的。

所谓的转型计划实际上是毫无意义的,尤其是国阵政府的不公平的待遇和不均匀的拨款分配。 虽然穷人可以获得政府发出的援助金,但他们仍然还是穷,因为这并不足以维持一个月的家庭开支。 只有“亲信”和有关系的人才获得好处,例如供应商,承包商,团体和个人。 贪污和滥权的情况比以前更加鼎盛,而且也没有丝毫减少。 因为大家并没有看到有任何积极的转变或良好的成就,所以纳吉迄今迟迟都还没有解散国会的原因。
