PKR Youth leader urges BN parties upset with Umno to cross over

IPOH: Barisan Nasional component parties unhappy with Umno’s “arrogance” should pull out of the coalition and join Pakatan Rakyat (PR), said a Perak Parti Keadilan (PKR) Youth leader.

Perak PKR Youth Information deputy chief Chang Lih Kang said there were Barisan parties which share the same views as PR in issues like abolishing draconian laws and fair and equitable treatment for all races.

Barisan component parties could not implement such policies because Umno, as the dominant party in the coalition, did not endorse their views, he said.

Unfortunately, they had no choice but to concede and “kowtow” (be submissive) to Umno, he added.

Chang, who is also Teja assemblyman, said it was time for them to re-consider their political positioning.

By joining PR, they would not only have the opportunity to realise their policies but also end the era of racial politics in Malaysia, he said on Saturday night during a forum entitled “The move towards a two-party system – how are young politicians making changes?” organised by the Youth wing of the Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall.

Chang’s proposal came in the midst of persistent talk of Barisan MPs crossing over to join Pakatan Rakyat.

Chang made the proposal after Perak MCA organising secretary Dr Mah Hang Soon spoke about Umno becoming arrogant, saying MCA felt this was not right.

Dr Mah acknowledged his party had previously made compromises within the Barisan, resulting in MCA being accused of lacking courage.

The Chenderiang assemblyman, MCA’s sole representative in Perak, said he disagreed with party hopping because it was an unhealthy practice. – The Star

全民公正晚宴 李文材:若公正党执政 透明施政废除3法令

全民公正晚宴 李文材:若公正党执政 透明施政废除3法令
二零零八年四月二十七日 晚上十一时三十七分

(怡保27日讯)霹雳州务大臣拿督斯里尼查说,霹雳州人民选择了由民盟政府来执政,民盟政府将以公正及透明化施政,进一步成为亚洲国家的政治模范国。

尼查:成为亚洲模范国

他说,目前霹雳州甘文丁监狱有80名在未经审讯下而遭到内安法令扣留者,并不合理及必须重新检讨。

他是於周日晚出席由该党霹雳州主办的全民公正晚宴上致词时这么说。

人民公正党全国副主席李文材强调,一旦该党再夺得多30个国席,就有机会执政,届时该党将以公平及透明化来施政。

他说,如果政权变天,该党首要处理的重大事务就是废除内安法令、废除官方机密法令及废除出版印刷法令以及提升各源流教育水平等。

他相信在6个月内有机会政权易主,并相信在3年之内可看到成绩。

他也抨击马华总会长拿督斯里黄家定,在我国独立50年后才醒觉在未来要作出改变,即须跑多元路线,不要做巫统的‘附属品’或跟班,而该党早在1999年创党便开始朝多元化路线。

此外,他促请前霹雳州务大臣拿督斯里达祖罗斯里解释,他於较早前曾建议在怡保扩建国际机场一事,目前整个计划都已不了了之。

他继说,要发展霹雳州经济,就必需推行利民政策如配合廉价航空飞机,为霹雳州带来更多商机。

另一方面,他表示,该党目前共有30万名党员,为壮大党阵容,该党在未来将广招更多党员入党,希望达到50万名党员的目标。

戴成银:逐步落实承诺

霹雳州行政议员兼十八丁区州议员戴成银致词时,希望人民给时间由民盟政府施政,并会在短期内让人民感觉不同的地方,就是通过不同管道为人民谋求福利,包括在大选前许下诺言使华人新村获得永久地契及研究降低水费等,而希望在任期内能逐步完成这些任务。

他继说,为改革社会风气,使人们思想改革,该党将为人民作出服务,如以创新方法设立咨询网站及投诉网站,而由於新政府在执政及管理方面还新之故,因此要求商家作为咨询顾问,以便吸引外资及朝向高科技领域前进,使霹雳州的经济有更佳的发展。

新邦波赖区州议员曾敏凯及迪查区州议员郑立慷、霹雳州公正党主席苏基菲及大会工委会主席刘泉来也於会上致词。
