谢绝加入国阵 张健仁立场坚定

(本报古晋28日讯)民主行动党砂州主席张健仁坚定立场﹐谢绝加入国阵﹗

基于坊间盛传﹐行动党与国阵在某方面得以彼此合作﹐似乎将加入国阵成为当中一员﹖惟﹐张健仁今日强调﹐这是不可能的﹐所谓的“合作”并不代表“加入”。

“要加入﹐早在60﹐70年前就已经加入了﹐因此这是绝对不可能发生的﹗”

他表示﹐首长阿迪南于日前曾说过认同在野党的角色,并愿意接纳反对党提出的建议,基本上首长的做法是对反对党伸出友谊之手,与过去人联党及国阵不同。

“与国阵合作”是必然

他强调,在野党绝对不会加入国阵,以获得一官半职或取得权利,而某新党若要加入国阵则是他们的选择,反对党绝不沾这一淌浑水。

因此﹐他清楚阐明该党的立场﹐即“加入国阵”不可能﹐“与国阵合作”则是必然的﹐然而﹐务必基于“清廉施政”及“以民为本”两大基础。

他指出﹐与国阵合作方式有多个层面及方式﹐他举例﹐正如之前在州议会中﹐大家连成一条线﹐一致通过20%石油开采税﹑主动发起全民运动争取降低电费﹐最终首长亦配合﹐这些都是诚意的展现﹐达致彼此合作的效果﹐这些都对人民有好处。

他声称﹐该党在与国阵合作之际﹐扮演着三个重要的角色﹐即“配合﹑监督及施压”﹐一些国阵无法推动或清楚说明的事件﹐将由我们来下手。

张健仁是在今日该党新春团拜后﹐召开的新闻发布会上﹐如是表示。

他续称﹐去年马年﹐对我国来说根本就是灾难年﹐从之前的MH370失踪﹑MH17被击落﹐再到油价大跌﹐导致国家收入减少﹐而民联当中也发生许多问题﹐一开年﹐就损失多名领袖﹐包括卡巴星﹑黄和联等﹐再来就是安华入狱事件。

“希望马年带给民联更好的一年﹐我国更会是迈向更好的一年。”

张健仁:拨独中400万赞 列常年拨款更好

(本报古晋28日讯)砂首长丹斯里阿迪南沙登拨款400万令吉是好事﹐若将该拨款列入砂州财政预算案当中﹐作为常年拨款﹐会是好上加好﹗

民主行动党砂州主席张健仁今日在该党新春团拜后﹐向媒体如是表示。
他认为﹐该400令吉拨款被列入砂州财政预算案当中﹐常年拨款予独中﹐而非随着首长的喜好来拨款。
同时﹐他也希望随着州政府拨款予独中,也能给予华校硬体发展给予拨款。
对于早前首长承诺承认独中文凭,张健仁希望能在今年内砂州政府在聘请公务员方面能够把统考文凭列入条件之一,因为这才是实质上对独中的认同及承认﹐而非口头上说说而已。

严打极端份子 张健仁建议从巫统开始

(本报古晋28日讯)我国首相拿督斯里纳吉表示将严厉打击极端份子﹐行动党砂州主席张健仁则建议﹐所谓的清理门户行动﹐务必从“自家”﹐即巫统开始﹗
他表示﹐如今所看到的极端份子﹑种族主义及宗教主义报导﹐几乎都是出自于巫统﹐身为巫统党主席的首相本身﹐应该从“自家”开始进行打击行动﹐而非口头说说。
他欣慰指出﹐砂州向来种族和谐﹐没有极端份子﹐更不欢迎极端主义的出现﹐这也是为什么我们不欢迎巫统东渡前来砂州的原因。
“因此﹐我们希望首相能尽快付诸行动﹐证明其决心。”
张健仁是今日在古晋行动党新春团拜后,如是发表上述谈话。
他续称﹐众所周知的是﹐极端主义无论是对国家抑或人民都不是一件好事,因此希望首相纳吉能发挥其杜绝极端主义的决心,积极付诸行动对付极端主义分子。

'To fight extremism, Najib must start from Umno'

Sarawak DAP welcomed Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s statement on fighting against extremism, as it is not good for the country and the people.

“But to fight extremism, I urge him to walk the talk. Don’t only pay lip service. He must start from Umno, of which he is the president,” said Sarawak DAP chief Chong Chieng Jen (left) when commenting on the matter.

Last night, Najib told some 40,000 people who were attending a Chinese New Year gathering at the compound of Dewan Masyarakat Kuching that the BN government rejected any form of extremism.

He said he was aware that the Chinese in Malaysia wanted peace, stability, good governance and rejected extremism.

“They want, above all, peace and stability. If you don’t have peace and stability, you cannot do business or make money, and BN can provide peace and stability in Sarawak.

“When we have peace and stability, we must reject extremism,” Najib was quoted as saying.

Speaking at a news conference this morning, Chong - who is also the Bandar Kuching MP and state assemblyperson for Kota Sentosa - stressed that the PM should first tackle Umno, which he claimed was full of extremists.

“Some Umno leaders and cabinet ministers have been issuing racist and religious extremist statements.


"For a minister to make a racist statement like accusing the Chinese of exploiting the price of goods and urging the Malays to boycott Chinese traders, it shows that this minister is not fit to be in the cabinet,” said Chong, referring to Agriculture and Agro-based Industries Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob's infamous Facebookposting.

Najib has to take a series of actions against the many extremists in Umno and to tackle them one by one, only then will he have showed that he walked the talk, added Chong.

“As far as Sarawak as concerned, we do not have any extremism, and we don’t welcome extremism from the peninsula.

“That is why we don’t welcome Umno,” he said.

Najib and his wife Rosmah Mansor returned to Kuala Lumpur this morning after a three-day visit to Sarawak.

展现和解诚意,向董总拜年去

自从20/1/15高庭法官献议双方庭外和解,改革派宣布放弃要召集违法的18中委特别会议。许多关心华教体系的团体或个别人士,纷纷表示欣慰,期待董总风波早日落幕,更建议双方通过中立社团,主办圆座会议,以民主公开方式,辩论议题,推行中庸之道。当权派叶邹表示,愿意和解只要不伤害各方,不预定条件,按会章,不触犯教育法令和社团注册法规,以免陷董总未来与不利之境。希望在3月5日之前各方自我克制,不发表任何干 扰 司法的言论。
令人遗憾的是,挑战派,漠视民意,怂恿其文化打手,继续狂攻,抹黑,重复无中生有的旧事,增添莫须有的罪名,尽情羞辱诋毁董总领导人, 例如 说叶邹与时任新院理事长王今钟成立一家新纪元私人有限公司,是意图将董教总名下的新院和产业及资金,转到这家注册在叶邹和王今钟名下的新纪元私人有限公司。要成为新院这家大学的老板 ,把三位为新院格升大学义不容辞的承担 ,诋毁为贪腐,嚣张,想鲸吞公产的卑鄙之徒。这是极度的毁谤。
其实,2014 年3月17日成立新纪元私人有限公司的成立,获董教总教育中心董事一致同意 ,一星期后, 24/3/2014就将所有股份转移到董教总教育中心 。 如今被指私人有限公司是要私有化新院或吞拚新院。
劳动新院理事长出面证实,新纪元私人有限公司是100% 由董教总中心非营利有限公司拥有的子公司。组织新纪元私人有限公司是应当权者的条件,是新院格升为大学学院的必要程序。
令人惊叹的是,董教总教育中心,不乏挑战派的人选,明知就里,却不愿澄清真相,只为抹黑对方,宁让支持者胡乱叫骂,惹上毁谤官非自食恶果,真缺德。试问他们给叶邹所冠上的种种罪名还可相信吗?
农历新年来临,去年抄董总多次召集中常委会议,团拜事宜都例入讨论议程,问题是傅振荃等,执意要先解决倒邹(违章的动议)不果,便不顾正常会务,制造流会。原先因内部矛盾无法近期解决,董总 宣布今年不筹办新春团拜,但一班支持者咸认新春团拜是华人文化精髓,对来年的进展有正面的影响,举办新春团拜可促进政府,党团,群众交流,互相激励,作用大,希望所有董联会成员支持今年的团拜,不因人废事,把董总推向分裂的深渊,新春团拜是破镜团圆最适当的平台。董总在一批董联会的支持下,决定在不花费董总财政一分一毛的情形下,新春团拜照跑。
为破坏董总活动,腰斩董总行政活力,挑战派推出5华团公然表示杯葛团拜,说搞团拜是在分裂华社,喊出如此匪夷所思的论调。新春团拜,彼此祝福,以宏观宽恕之心取代狭隘怨怼之意,伸出友谊之手,传达亲善和谐中庸之道,何以会增加分裂?这5个团体出师无名,谁在破坏华社团结,谁不愿和解,已一目了然。
华人新年佳节原属一片祥和互相祝福喜气洋洋的日子,然而在董总内斗的战场上,挑战派仍然释放浓烈硝烟,为了摧毁董总主办的新春团拜,加强炮火,马不停蹄,轰炸到农历除夕日,接连发表了万言毫无新意的沉长文告。重复挑战派1年多对叶邹的指责,意犹未尽,最后咒骂叶邹气数已尽,准备迎接後叶邹时代的到来。新年佳节,恶言恶语,实在令人反感。
为了进一步打击董总举办的团拜,挑战派串联别州同路人,此起彼落,数落董总过去4年团拜花费了55万令吉。不该如此浪费。然而这笔龐大的开支都是经过董总各级会议通过和认可,是集体的决定,包括如今挑战派中的常委和中委的认同,再由傅振全秘书处核查,请问当时为何不纠正?为何不建议删掉华而不实的节目?如果以傅振全荃为首的挑战派指如此开销,有犯上报大数和滥用公款之罪,是否知道自己身为时任处事中委,如按法理来办,自己也逃不过同谋共犯之罪,如今闹分裂,就想把责任推到叶邹二老身上,委实法理难容,言者是在自揭疮疤,不知丑。请问华社,这样素质的人选,可以当担民族文化大业的旗手吗?
叶邹把挑战派违章违法行为带上法庭,是坚持董总的运作须依章依法行事,是在挽救董总,这座华教堡垒,免遭社团注册局取缔,动摇其法定地位,何过之有?
正当华教面对(2013-2025教育大蓝图)内不利母语教育发展的政策的存亡威胁之际,董总发动波澜壮阔的百万签名运动,获1100团体签名支持齐心反对蓝图中不利母语教育的条文。
挑战派此刻,坚持挑起人事课题,如此凌厉打压叶邹,如此猴急要拉叶邹下台, 令人怀疑他们背后的隐议程。是否在转移人民对华教路线斗争的中心点,挑战派要逼迫董总认同关丹中华中学是华文独中,指鹿为马;要董总接受关中学生参与独中的统考,以身试法。事实证明,关中按批文是一间马来文私立中学,董总不能接受关中学生参与独中的统考,除非得到官方考试总监书面的批准。挑战派无法自圆其说,只能选择逃避,另挑话题转移关心华教人士的视线。让人事纷争蒙蔽华教危机的真相。这将 迎合当权者执行单元文化的新政策,顺利推行教育大蓝图的政令。华社绝不能等闲视之。
挑战派催动各路人马,媒体,“知名”人士为叶邹冠上种种5花8门的罪名。叶邹二老为自身的清白举办听证会加以腾清,何错?真理越辩越清,何惧?举办听证会不是在阔大矛盾,而是在扩大华教支持者的知情权,以免党团被一些别有居心领袖所误导。
诚心希望挑战派认清敌我,不要再刁难,让董总能集中精力对付单元文化政策对母语教育的侵蚀。职权届满,业绩不彰,依法依章轮替,保存董总完整,皆大欢喜,何乐而不为。
挑战派要改朝换代不是不可以,但要改之有道,挑战派领军人物也要有自己的业绩,同时彰显取代队伍的素质,方能令人信服。怎能一味对现任的领袖乱套罪名,一举抹杀叶邹数十年来呕心沥血, 尽心尽力,义务为华教抗拒单元文化政策不断侵蚀华教的恶作剧的所有付出。挑战派的激烈无情夺权手段,将使有志献身华教者心寒,望而却步。叶邹诚如挑战派所指的大奸大恶,傅振荃诸公与叶邹二老十多年来共事,认同所推行的议案,按理也难逃助暴为掠之嫌。何况仅在1年前,叶邹是在众望所归,没有挑战的情况下蝉联旧职,这一切真令人费解!
任何危及董总的注册地位或任何违章违法的举动是绝对不能支持。削弱董总的力量就是助长单元文化的力量。支持董总不等于支持叶邹永远座镇董总领导高职。而是支持他们坚贞不渝维护华教的立场。
新年伊始, 万象更新,希望董总裂痕愈合,同心协力迎接未来的挑战。希望董总百万人签名运动的壮举成功说服当权者,修改教育大蓝图中不利母语的条文。祝华社董总全体同仁,万事顺心如意。

Speculation on early election as PM visits S’wak

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s three-day visit to Sarawak, starting this evening, has sparked off speculation for an early state election as elaborate programmes have been laid down for him and his wife Rosmah Mansor.

During the visit, he is expected to meet with the state BN leaders to discuss the state’s preparations for the coming state election although there is no mention of him meeting them in the programme.

Political observers said that all programmes arranged for Najib and statements made by BN leaders seemed to point to an early election.

Many had expected it to be held in September this year.

The term for the current state assembly should end in June next year.

Yesterday, Sarawak DAP chief Chong Chieng Jen (left) told newsmen that the visit by the  PM indicated an early election for Sarawak and during the visit he would bring a lot of ‘election goodies’ and make many election promises.

“He will act as ‘Santa Claus’ distributing election goodies especially to the rural people,” said Chong who is the Kota Sentosa State assemblyperson.

“But don’t underestimate the intelligence of the rural people now - they know what is good and what is bad.

“We have gone through a number of elections, and we know the voters will not be swayed easily by such goodies and promises,” he said.

As for the DAP, they would not be intimidated by the ‘election goodies’.

Programmes for PM

Meanwhile, this evening the prime minister will open Sarawak Urban Transformation Centre and the following day he will fly to Sri Aman where he will lay the foundation of the much-talked-about Sri Aman Hospital.

After the function, he will proceed to Beladin to perform a ground-breaking ceremony for the Beladin Community Hall.

In the afternoon, Najib will fly to Serian where he will open the Selabi water treatment plant. He is also expected to announce the upgrading of Serian district into a division.

Tomorrow night, the prime minister and his wife will attend a Chinese New Year celebration with other BN leaders.

Some 40,000 people are expected to attend at the Dewan Masyarakat Kuching.

Before returning to Kuala Lumpur on Saturday, he will visit Satok Food Centre, where he will hand over aid to victims of the recent floods.

Sarawak DAP to file motion to make 'Dayak' a race

Sarawak DAP will move a motion in the coming state legislative assembly sitting to seek the term 'Dayak' to define all indigenous races in Sarawak, other than Malays.

To do so, there needs to be an amendment to the term 'natives' in the Sarawak Interpretation Ordinance (SIO), state DAP chief Chong Chieng Jen told a press conference in Kuching today.

As it is, Sarawak natives already recognise themselves as Dayak, the Kota Sentosa assemblyperson said.

"It is with this strong sentiment that there is now the call for the term ‘Dayak’ to replace the term ‘dan lain-lain’ or the suggested ‘bumiputera’ in the race column of all government forms."

Chong (left) said the party wants Sarawak natives to be classified as two races – Dayak and Malay.

"All the previously referred to races, like the Iban, Bidayuh, etc, will be regarded as sub-ethnic groups under the unifying term for the race called ‘Dayak’," he said.

"At the moment, the shocking truth is that there is no ‘Dayak’ race in the SIO."

DAP's proposal will also see sub-ethnic groups Berawan, Lakiput and Tering, now omitted from the definition of 'natives', to be recognised as 'Dayak'.

Under the SIO, the term ‘natives’ means Bidayuh or Land Dayak, Bukitan, Berawan, Bisayah, Dusun, Iban or Sea Dayak, Kadayan, Kelabit, Kayan, Kenyah (including Sabup and Sipeng), Kajang (including Sekapan, Kejaman, Lahanan, Punan, Tanjong and Kanowit), Lakiput, Lugat, Lisum, Melanau, Murut or Lun Bawang, Penan, Sian, Tagal, Tabun, Tering, Ukit and any admixture of these races with each other.

No more divisions

The proposal will not be the final draft, Chong said, and welcomes suggestions from Dayak NGOs, academicians and community members.

Sarawak DAP vice-chairperson Leon Jimat Donald (below, right) has been tasked to receive feedback on the proposal, which the party wants to finalise before the deadline for submissions to the secretary of the state legislative assembly.

Submissions must be made two weeks before assembly sitting. The date for the next sitting has yet to be announced but the Sarawak assembly traditionally sits in May and in November.

"Under the BN regime, the Dayak have been divided into small groups and marginalised, sometimes even totally forgotten in the federal government’s policy-making process.

"It is time that the Dayak stand united so that their voices be heard and their plights be addressed properly by the ruling government.

"Hopefully, this amendment will be the first small step towards the unification of Dayak into a stronger political force, so that their interests may be better protected," Chong said.
