Kho asks Finance Minister to focus on trade initiatives 

Kho Teck Wan

SUPP Central Women Section Chairman Kho Teck Wan is in the opinion that the Finance Minister Department should focus on trade initiatives that will generate more income to the country, instead of turning to rakyat to increase national income. According to Tun Daim, under the Minister of Finance, 8 million warning and inquiry letters were sent out to rakyat from the Inland Revenue thus far. Not only that, new taxes were introduced such as the oversea travel tax, soda tax, and e-commerce tax. City in Pakatan Harapan’s state such asRead More


许德婉促请希盟停止向人民施于压迫手段

KTW

砂拉越人民联合党中央妇女组主席许德婉促请希盟政府,即刻停止对人民进行各种压迫手段,避免加剧人民生活困苦。 她发表文告说,希盟政府精英顾问团主席敦达因曾指出,造成近月来马币大跌,人民生活困苦因素是财政部属下内陆税收局向民众发出800万封通知信所致。由于税收局属于财政部,因此财政部长林冠英必须对这种情况作出解释和交代,税收局发出这么庞大的信件,是否获得财政部的指示。 她强调,希盟政府执政迄今,不仅实施多项令人难以负担的新税务包括离境税、汽水税和数码税等,现在还通过各种手段“追税”,以致人民不敢消费。 许德婉表示,政府没有兑现竞选承诺中的降低油价、给民众一年2000令吉和取消大道收费等,现在百物价格更高居不下,人民生活中水深火热中。政府不但没减轻人民生活负担,还频频对商家“下手”,包括地方政府刚发出的新指令,规定商场建筑物外的广告牌,甚至是商场内的商店指示牌,只要有商标就要征收执照费。 她认为此举不仅加重商家的经济负担,同时有关的收费最终也会转嫁到消费者身上。 因此,人联党促请希盟政府,应该拟定有效政策,以减轻人民生活困难,而不是制定如何向人民下手的政策。

苏莉群:方便监督,宜每隔一段时期申报

Soo Li Ching

(15日讯)砂首长署政治秘书苏莉群赞同包括反对党议员在内的所有国会议员,都须向反贪污委员会申报财产的建议,相信可起到警惕作用,及减少国内贪污问题。 她於今日接受访问有关首相马哈迪表示将立法规定所有国会议员申报财产课题时指出,国会议员主要职务就是为选区内的人民服务,解决问题,但难免某些人在拥有职权后及受到利诱之下而犯错。申报财产将有助於监督朝野国会议员的收入,或多或少将起警惕作用,因为一旦有超过原本收入的可疑资金及财产,就会被发觉。 她强调,立法规定是一个,但更重要的是要有透明度,以及如何 去执行,否则一旦被当权者滥用,仅会沦为打击政敌及庇护自家人的工具。 “首要的是,反贪委员会必须要完全独立,不受到任何政治力量的干涉。同时,国会议员们也应该与反贪会配合调查,以确保所申报的财产与事实相符。若只是任由正副部长及国会议员自行申报,又没单位去核实的话,那规定犹如虚设,用假像博取信任,混淆人民而己。” 与此同时,她也认为若国会议员们申报的收入及所拥有的财产额不符时,有必要向人民做出解释。且亦应规定议员们每隔一个期限,就须更新及申报最新的财产,方便人民能够时时监督,相关议员是否有中饱私囊。 苏莉群表示,一些政策的实施往往出发点是好的,但却因为被滥用或执行力不足,而导致起不了作用或失去原本的意义。若政府是有决心打击国内贪污问题,国民肯定是乐见其成。在这课题上,反贪委员会所扮演的角色最为重要,人民亦须共同监督,以避免该委员会受到政治力量干涉,被利用来打压政敌。 资料来源:民都鲁星洲日报

符祥威挺首长重启轻快铁计划

20181023_120700-850x491

砂拉越人民联合党青年团秘书长符祥威律师表示,他全力支持砂首长拿督巴丁宜阿邦佐哈里重新启动古晋第一期轻快铁计划,以作为替代公共交通系统,舒缓古晋至三马拉汉的交通阻塞问题。 他指出,古晋至三马拉汉的道路使用者深受塞车困扰。该道路的阻塞情况不仅发生在上下班繁忙时段,甚至从上午6时30分开始至晚上10时,都会出现阻塞问题。 符祥威今日发表文告说,他上个月代表砂地方政府及房屋部长拿督沈桂贤出席在砂大举行的活动时,接获许多关于交通阻塞的投诉,这进一步证明阿邦佐哈里提出当地交通阻塞问题的严重性。 他表示,阿邦佐哈里及砂政党联盟政府勇敢采取行动,重启轻快铁计划以帮助人民的决心值得赞赏。反观,联邦政府却取消砂拉越许多大型基建计划。


希盟执政一周年,大失所望

Soo Li Ching

对於希盟执政一周年的表现,砂首长署政治秘书苏莉群指称,大失所望! 撇开政治立场,就事论事,她认为,总体来说希盟在这一年来并未给人民看见国家较大的改变。尤其希盟在509时,许下太多美好的承诺,唯在509后的一年内,却未能依时逐步去兑现承诺,让许多期许新马来西亚真的可以过得更好的支持者难免失去了信心。 “这无关乎时间的长短,而是政府在执行力上的诚意与效率。有没有去做,和能不能做到是两回事。” 她说,509大选时,95%的华裔选择支持希盟就是期望他们能为华社争取更多,也是支持希盟开明 、公平对待各族的执政理念。但至今的结果却是,统考未获得承认,是要顾及马来人的感受,大学预科班增加了名额,美其名是说非土著学额增加,但依然保持90:10的比例,却是进一步加大了不公。而且,在大学学额没有增加的情况下,非土著进入大学的机会将大幅度下降。 苏莉群今日针对希盟执政一周年受访时指出,虽然希盟内阁部长都是新人,却也不能因此将国家政策当儿戏,一些部长在未计划周详的情况下,就仓促要实施某某政策,在被人民大力抨击后,又宣布撤销。在这方面,没有经验不能被一直当成藉口,不正正就因为没有经验,所以才更应该谨慎去处理国家大事吗? 她表示,经济 方面不见好转是让许多人对政府失去信心的主要因素之一,在销售与服务税取代了消费税后,百货并未有下降,接踵而来的是迎来更多的税务,大众依然感受到通货膨胀的压力。 “经济对百姓人说是重要的一环,如果人人都有稳健的经济来源,衣食无忧,基本上就算在实政上有些偏差,人民也不会过於计较。” 苏莉群进一步说,政府一边说国债高筑,没有多馀资源去发展经济,但另一边厢又要搞一些非必要的大型计划如第三国产车、弯桥及第一方程式赛车等。 对砂拉越方面,她称,509前希盟称一旦执政,将归还砂拉越的自主权,无须再协商。但事实的诚意大家都知道,在国会中提呈一读时,仅是将原本的“13”,改成“11+2”,在受到砂人民激烈的反对声潮后,二读时虽说修改至恢复了砂拉越“邦”的名,却对邦的“实”及砂自主权只字不提。 当然,并非所以部门都做得不好,苏莉群说,通讯部及交通部在提升网速,降低上网费用及道路安全方面,表现还是值得嘉许的。不过,因为内阁各部门的进前步伐不一致,导致一些好的表现未能掩盖不足的地方。 苏莉群希望政府在今后的执政能专注在改善国家经济与教育,实行公平的教育政策,留住人才,让所有的学子不分种族背景,都能获得应有的教育资源。与此同时,应实施有效 率及针对性的经济政策,停止一些无聊的小动作。 “比如与其鼓励国人喝棕油、爱棕油,不如解决出口问题。首相到中国协商及解决棕油出口问题,将比您喝100年棕油更有实际效果。” 她说,一些戏码在做反对党时代,人民或许爱看及可以接受,但希盟现在已是执政政府,角色已不同,做完了戏,还是要回归现实,人民还是要吃饭,经济还是要照顾。唯有搞好经济,国家才能有更多的资源,人民生活才能过得更好。人民经济收入不成问题之时,国家要征税,相信人民是乐意缴之,而不是在人民生活负担日欲加重的同时,还通过各种税务对人民落井下石,来增加国家的收入。
