“BN has failed the Sabahans” - series for GE 2013 // “国阵已让沙巴人彻底失望” -大选文告系列




N16路阳候选人邱庆洲将会发出一系列的文告,让选民清楚为何国阵让沙巴人觉得彻底失望。 马来西亚已让国阵连续执政超过50年,而沙巴州四届的政府都是由国阵的成员党执政。然而国阵联邦及州政府的无能管制之下,情况已是日况益下。 世界银行的报告指出,沙巴已从最富有的州属之一成为最贫穷的一州。 这全归国阵的无能和低效率的管理,而且加上严重的贪污腐败和滥权。


This is a series of articles by the N16 Luyang candidate, Hiew King Cheu, to point out why Barisan Nasional (BN) had failed the Sabahans. The people of Malaysia have given BN more than 50 years of continuous rule. In Sabah, there were four governments which were in one way or another aligned to BN, the bad administration of the Federal and State Government had resulted Sabah from being one of the richest states to become one of the poorest states today as reported by the World Bank. What have gone wrong?


Case 1 – Corruption

Corruption runs on top of the list of BN failures. It is so rampant that it has become laughing matters in BN United Malays National Organization (UMNO) national assembly.
A former UMNO veteran said the practice of “money politics” was so prevalent that when Najib was elected (telecast live on national television) as Umno president in 2009, he joked in his closing speech “Inilah kita Umno dalam dilemma. Beri wang salah, tak beri kalah.” (“We in Umno are in a dilemma. If we give out cash, we’re in the wrong, but if we don’t give it out, we lose”).
“And everybody down there, the delegates, started clapping and laughing because they have been receiving and those on the stage, the Umno Supreme Council members, also clapped because they have been giving. So it became a joking matter, something light – a culture that has to be accepted”, recounted the UMNO veteran. What began as handing out a few hundred Malaysian Ringgits to grassroots members soon snowballed into millions…
Before the 13th General Elections, the caretaker PM Najib has already announced that he will accept independents, pro-BN politicians or members of other political parties who are willing to jump ship – like the case of Perak in the aftermath of the 2008 political “tsunami”. Where power and authority is concerned, there is no such thing as “gentlemen” and BN will do anything to ensure they win and rule the country. Najib openly announced that BN would create political “road-blocks” not police road-blocks to ensure that the opposition’s march to Putrajaya will not be possible and BN will continue to rule.

DAP National Adviser Lim Kit Siang once said, “I do not think any MP is serious about the ‘cancer of corruption in our body’ politics would disagree with Tan Sri Robert Phang (former Adviser of Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission - MACC) that the sixth conference of the International Association of Anti-Corruption Authorities that was held in Kuala Lumpur on October 3, 2012 would be worthwhile only if the Malaysian delegation were to use it as an opportunity to address the long-standing corruption allegations against the Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Ghani Patail.”

“No reason to celebrate but many grounds to rue over Transparency International (TI) 2012 Corruption Perception Index (CPI) which ranked Malaysia 54th as compared to 60th in 2011 as the least corrupt country in the world”, said Lim.

Malaysia is below average in international rankings and scores. In 1995, under Mahathir Malaysia was at No. 23; in 2003 when Badawi took over Malaysia was at No. 37; in 2008 Malaysia was at No. 47 towards the end of Badawi; and by 2012 under Najib Malaysia was at No. 54. So, we have the worst performance report card under Najib’s watch! God forbids we would fall further if Malaysians give him five more daunting years – very scary.

How much further will we fall if that happens? While he struts in his failure by saying I have grown a few beautiful feathers to replace the ones I have lost, the way things are going, he may one day say, the last time it was 100, now are now 99. Are we going to continue to allow him to do that to the people for another 5 years? When will the pain and suffering for the people be enough? We cannot be happy in our suffering and we should never be. Change will only come when we decide it and this is the time to do it.

The people have a positive opportunity to eradicate the ‘cancer of corruption’ when we replace BN with Pakatan Rakyat (PR) and this is the time for it.. There is no two-way about it. This has been proven in the states run by PR – Penang, Selangor, Kelantan and Kedah. PR appeals to the people in a bid for support that “Ini kali lah – Ubah/Tukar”. We shall march to Putrajaya and also take over the administration of Sabah in order for the changes to take place for the development and prosperity of the Sabah and Malaysia.

The second on this series is on Petroleum.

国阵已让沙巴人彻底失望” -大选文告系列

N16路阳候选人邱庆洲将会发出一系列的文告,让选民清楚为何国阵让沙巴人觉得彻底失望。 马来西亚已让国阵连续执政超过50年,而沙巴州四届的政府都是由国阵的成员党执政。然而国阵联邦及州政府的无能管制之下,情况已是日况益下。 世界银行的报告指出,沙巴已从最富有的州属之一成为最贫穷的一州。 这全归国阵的无能和低效率的管理,而且加上严重的贪污腐败和滥权。
系列一:贪污
贪污在国阵政府的列表上是排名第一。 贪污是非常猖獗,已成为全国巫统大会里的一项笑话。
一位资深的前巫统主席在电视台现场直播中说 “自从2009年纳吉成为巫统主席后,巫统政治更加趋向‘金钱政治’。 他甚至还开玩笑的说,‘我们巫统现在已陷入两难的困境。就算给钱也错,但如果不给钱就更加错! ’

当时在该巫统大会里,巫统的代表们听了之后就热烈鼓掌和开心大笑,甚至台上的巫统最高理事会成员也都跟着鼓掌,可见他们是认同。 ‘贪污’已成为一项家常便饭的事,甚至成为可以接受的巫统文化。 这种文化甚至让巫统的元老都深感乏力。刚开始只是派几百令吉,如今像滚雪球一样越滚越大,需要派出上万令吉才能得到区区的效果。

13届大选举之前,看守政府的代首相纳吉已经宣布,他可以接受任何与国阵友好的独立人士,政客或其他想要跳槽政党的人士用国阵的标志参选 ,就像在霹雳州2008年的政治海啸后的情况一样。 为了要重掌政权,已经没有所谓的‘君子’可言,国阵将尽一切努力使用任何手段以确保他们的胜利。 纳吉已公开宣布国阵会设立‘政治路障’,而不是‘警方路障’,以确保国阵能够继续统治马来西亚,而反对党是不可能步入布城的。

民主行动党全国顾问林吉祥曾经说过,“我不认为任何国会议员会严厉看待‘我国政治系统内日益猖狂的贪污癌症’, 也不同意丹斯里罗伯(马来西亚反贪局前顾问)于2012103日在吉隆坡举办第六次的国际反贪局会议所说。除非马来西亚的代表们能够认同要解决长久以来对总检察长丹斯里阿都加尼帕泰的指控事件。”

林氏还说“实在是没有理由庆祝,而应该是感到可悲,因国际透明组织TI)在2012年的贪污指数(CPI)报告中,马来西亚排名第54, 而2011年的排名则是第60名”。

马来西亚在国际排名和分数低于平均水平。 1995年马来西亚在马哈迪的治理下是排名在第23名,接着在2003年巴达维接手后,排名在第37名, 在2008年巴达维退位前滑落到第47名,之后在2012年在纳吉的执政下跌至第54名。 这清楚的看到在纳吉的治理下,其表现成绩是非常的差! 如果马来西亚让国阵和纳吉继续执政多五年,可以肯定的是我国排名将会滑落谷底,这是非常吓人的事。

马来西亚人民是不能够让这种情况继续发生。 虽然纳吉试图想掩盖他的失败,说他们已经做了很多的改变,包括他的转型计划,以取代之前的失败。 但是遇上没有长进的话,他可能就会说这些进度是需要时间。 这样下去,我们的未来5年只会继续的倒退,而人民的痛苦和困境会变本加厉,而永远没有终止的一天。 马来西亚人民已经受够了,人民不要再继续面对痛苦。 因此‘改变’是唯一的方法阻止这情况继续下去,人民决定是时候要换掉无能的国阵。

沙巴选民现在有机会来除掉我国政治系统内的癌症-贪污,就是遗弃国阵投选民联,因为是时候要改变,才有更好的发展和未来。 这可以从民联执政的槟城,雪兰莪,吉兰丹和吉打州明确的证明到这一点。 民联在此呼吁所有选民同心把“就是现在!更换政府!改变未来!全力支持民联创造新天。 让民联入驻布城,让沙巴及马来西亚有更好发展和有繁荣的未来。
