How true the PM’s “Transparency” // 首相所谓的“透明度”




首相纳吉在这新届政府的第一次内阁会议中强调政府行政要有透明度。 为何他现在才提出施政要有透明度呢? 同时他并没有提及政府的诚信(Credibility)和公信力(Accountability)。 首相认为反对党只是纯粹炒作课题,并不根据现今的情况。 邱氏指出首相的看法是不正确的。 首相是“复制”反对党的理念,而恶意的批评反对党。 然而若他想‘复制’反对党的诚信,公信以及透明度(CAT Policy),就应该全面‘复制’,而不只是抽取其中的一项而已。

既然纳吉提到透明度,他首先应向沙巴,砂捞越,丁加奴和吉兰丹的石油分享表示要给于一个透明的交待,而不是该州的州民无法得知其行政及获益。 首相纳吉也必须修正1974年石油开发法令,让人民可以清楚知道石油收入利润以及其他费用的支出,以确保有透明度,诚信和公信力。 大家都想知道各州的石油生产量,销售量和其收入的正式数目,特别是沙巴和砂捞越的5%石油分享,丁加奴和吉兰丹州的分配额。 首相纳吉必须把这些数目的分配透明化,并不是只告诉他的内阁部长要有“透明度”而已。



Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib stressed on the importance of transparency in government administration in his first cabinet meeting. Why only now that the PM is talking about it but in the absence of creditability and accountability principles. It is not right that the PM still thinks that the opposition has exploited and blown out of proportion the idea regardless of whether it was real or mere perception. If the PM wants to “copy or cut and paste” the idea, it is unfair to criticize the opposition. The other thing is when he wants to copy, it is better to copy everything than to have “half baked” ideas.

When talking about transparency, Najib should first start with the petroleum royalty for Sabah and Sarawak; Terengganu and Kelantan. PM Najib must propose the amendment to the Petroleum Development Act 1974 to ensure transparency, accountability and creditability on our precious petroleum income, on its unknown expenses and so on. We want everything to be transparent like on the actual production, sales and income figures for the computation of the 5% oil royalty for Sabah and Sarawak, other percentages for Terengganu and Kelantan, etc. PM Najib must start to get really serious and come out with a do on transparency instead of just telling his cabinet to be “Transparent”.


Without creditability and accountability, transparency in itself would be like the PM has no original ideas – just follow what the opposition say in a small part. May be he should consult Lim Kit Siang or Lim Guan Eng, so that he can come up ideas with some originality.

Now that the 13th General Election has passed and the people of Malaysia have given their mandate, we have to move on to see how serious the Najib administration is in its transparency ideas – remember the idea is short of the two, creditability and accountability. The people of Penang and Selangor have given full marks for Lim Guan Eng and Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim by extending two-third majority to the two states. So, does Najib want to learn something than to criticize the PR granted that he was the Election Director of Selangor to win back the state for BN? He failed miserably for Selangor in his report cards and he fared worse than Badawi overall in 2008.

It is only now that he wants the members of the government to respond faster and more assertively on any issue raised by the opposition. Well and good, if he is really serious about making his “promises fulfilled” this time around. He must not forget that Sabah and Sarawak are twenty years behind West Malaysia in terms of progress and development. His giving 6 each full Ministers for Sabah and Sarawak is not yet the answers to all of East Malaysian’s woes and problems. If the East Malaysian are not happy with Najib and be contented with the 12 full Minister posts, the 47 elected BN East Malaysian MPs can always turn and join force with Pakatan Rakyat to realize a new government and to secure the 20% oil royalty along with other full benefits for the two East Malaysian states. This will be a better deal for the East Malaysian.

The people of Sabah and Sarawak want to see progress and development. What have not been fulfilled in the past as planned should be made good since BN and Najib have somehow won the 13th General Election. It is now time for Najib to show that he is really serious in his promises to the Sabahans that progress and development must take precedence.

首相所谓的“透明度”

首相纳吉在这新届政府的第一次内阁会议中强调政府行政要有透明度。 为何他现在才提出施政要有透明度呢? 同时他并没有提及政府的诚信(Credibility)和公信力(Accountability)。 首相认为反对党只是纯粹炒作课题,并不根据现今的情况。 邱氏指出首相的看法是不正确的。 首相是“复制”反对党的理念,而恶意的批评反对党。 然而若他想‘复制’反对党的诚信,公信以及透明度(CAT Policy),就应该全面‘复制’,而不只是抽取其中的一项而已。

既然纳吉提到透明度,他首先应向沙巴,砂捞越,丁加奴和吉兰丹的石油分享表示要给于一个透明的交待,而不是该州的州民无法得知其行政及获益。 首相纳吉也必须修正1974年石油开发法令,让人民可以清楚知道石油收入利润以及其他费用的支出,以确保有透明度,诚信和公信力。 大家都想知道各州的石油生产量,销售量和其收入的正式数目,特别是沙巴和砂捞越的5%石油分享,丁加奴和吉兰丹州的分配额。 首相纳吉必须把这些数目的分配透明化,并不是只告诉他的内阁部长要有“透明度”而已。

如果没有公信和诚信,透明度就没有一个具体的方向和规范。 首相只是抄袭民联良好施政的其中透明度,但是他是否可以确保全面的工作有透明度? 或许他应该咨询林吉祥或林冠英,让他们指导他如何有效的让其行政有透明度。

13届大选已经过去,马来西亚人民再次赋予国阵权力执政,现在大家都想看看纳吉的政府行政是否有透明度,别忘了他并没有提到公信和诚信。 槟城和雪兰莪州的人民赋予林冠英和丹斯里卡里易卜拉欣当政,让这两州以三分之二的多数席位执政。 所以纳吉要学习如何赢取民心,而不只是批评民联。 实际上雪兰莪州的成绩报告显示出他已失败,而他的表现也不如2008年巴达维当首相期间。

到了今天他才来要政府内阁部长有快速的响应和更有效的处理反对党提出的任何问题。 人民都质疑他是否会认真去“履行其承诺”。 他更不要忘记沙巴和砂捞越州在各方面都落后于西马二十多年。 他虽然委任了来自沙巴和砂捞越州的12位国会议员担任部长职,这还是无法全面解决东马的困境和问题。 就算被委任12位东马人为部长,若国阵纳吉对东马有所亏待和压制,那么东马的47位国阵的国会议员应该全体脱离国阵并加入民联,以便成立新政府,并确保东马能够取得由民联所答应的20%石油分享额,以及其他的权益。 这对东马而言将是一大公德。

沙巴和砂捞越人希望看到东马有更多进步和发展。 任何在过去还没有达成的计划都必须要努力完成。 现在是时候纳吉要遵守他的承诺,并且必须优先考虑到沙巴州所需。
