许德婉:希盟一再拖延承认统考让人失望

unnamed (4)

砂人联党中央妇女组主席许德婉对联邦政府一再以各种借口拖延承认统考文凭感到失望,并以砂拉越政府2015年起即承认统考,也没有因此造成砂拉越社会不和的事实,反击首相敦马哈迪日前发表承认UEC或影响社会和谐的说法。 首相敦马哈迪日前表示,政府在承认统考文凭之前必需先考虑各族感受及解决国家贫富不均问题。 “我还记得教育部长之前和董总讨论出的结果是只要统考生能在马来文及马来西亚历史科中考获“优等”(Credit)即可。然而,随着事件发展,承认统考文凭现在竟牵扯出种族情绪、财富不均、国民和谐及可能威胁马来文作为国家语文的地位问题。” 站在个人立场,她很遗憾前朝政府没来得及承认统考,同时也为砂拉越政府愿意承认UEC感到安慰。因此,她希望涉及统考文凭承认工作的各造能认真看待有关事宜,以莘莘学子的利益为先,因为无论任何源流的教育,都是以为国家培养健全发展人才为出发点。 除了再次申明UEC受全球各大专院校认可的事实外,许德婉今日在文告中也质疑联邦政府指承认统考文凭或影响社会和谐的说法。 “砂拉越政府自2015年起承认统考文凭,这个勇敢的决定非但没有在砂拉越造成如联邦政府吓唬国民般的“社会动乱”,反倒让砂拉越人以互相认同、互相包容的归属感,为自己身为砂拉越子民感到骄傲。” 针对行动党古晋区国会议员俞利文指砂人联党过去数十年作为国阵执政政府的一份子,却未能解决承认UEC一事,许德婉再次提醒俞利文,切勿忘记是希望联盟领袖,包括砂拉越的行动党领袖选前和选举期间在各大场合,甚至在宣传视频,以及竞选宣言中白纸黑字承诺“一执政立刻承认统考文凭”。 “一旦希盟政府的表现被质疑,俞利文的标准答案似乎都是‘前朝的错’。不过,就算你怪罪前朝,也改变不了希盟没有兑现承认UEC诺言的事实。” “如果要追究国阵的错,那你也应该一并追究现任首相敦马哈迪,因为国阵于1973年组成并执政马来西亚45年以来,现任首相敦马哈迪领导当时的政府长达22年。” 为避免俞利文“选择性失忆”,许德婉善意为俞利文回顾马来西亚历史,即在1974至1978年间,被希盟奉为救国英雄的敦马哈迪担任马来西亚教育部长一职。除了马哈迪,现在和行动党坐在同一条船上的公正党主席拿督斯里安华及土团党总裁兼现任内政部长丹斯里慕尤丁也分别在1986年至1991年及2009年至2015年担任马来西亚的教育部长,若国阵有负于人民,那这些领袖也要负连带责任。
