PRESS STATEMENT FROM DATUK SERI DR. CHUA SOI LEK / 拿督斯里蔡细历医生文告

I would like to thank Prime Minister Dato Seri Mohd Najib Tun Razak for maintaining the size of MCA’s representation in the Cabinet despite the move to streamline the number of ministries. I believe this is an indication of his support and confidence in the party as well as his willingness to embrace all communities in Malaysia.

I am confident that MCA will work hard to support the Prime Minister and help him realize his vision of “One Malaysia’’, a vision which everyone of us who yearns for a just and united country should embrace.

I contested the party election last year out of my desire to continue to serve the community and the party. I must thank all MCA central delegates who have given me this opportunity to serve and who continue to support me in every way possible.

Now that the Cabinet has been named, I hope MCA members remain calm and united. Our duty at this challenging time - as shown by the results of the Bukit Selambau and Bukit Gantang by-elections – is to ensure that the MCA and Barisan Nasional is relevant to the Malaysian electorate.

It is my fervent hope that the MCA representatives in the Cabinet speak without fear and favour and carry with them the unvarnished views from the community.

I would like to congratulate Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin on his appointment as Deputy Prime Minister as well as the Education Minister and all appointed Ministers.

-------------------------

我要感谢首相拿督斯里纳吉为内阁瘦身同时,仍保持马华4个部长的位额。我认为,这象征着首相对马华的支持和信心,也显示他愿意聆听各社群的声音。

我也在此至诚恭贺新任副首相丹斯里慕尤丁,以及全体内阁部长。

我深信,马华必将全力支持新首相,协助他实践“全民的马来西亚”展望,为人民打造一个公平和团结的国家。


去年,我秉着继续为民服务的意愿参加了马华党选。我要特别感谢给我这个机会继续为党和人民效力,以及竭尽所能支持我的全体马华中央代表。


如今新内阁已经诞生,我希望马华党员继续冷静和团结面对一切新发展。武吉士南卯及武吉干当败选使国阵面对更艰巨的挑战,我们的任务是确保马华和国阵在未来继续贴近民意,能够达到大马选民的期望。


我殷切希望马华的部长能在内阁秉公发言,持平而论,勇敢地为民请愿。

Dr Chua,
how to remain calm while MCA No2 doesnt have any post in cabinet? I believe the delegates vote for u due to ur dareness to speak the truth! A senator post should given to u to make u as a full minister in any of the 20 ministries! I'm looking forward for any changes, dr chua! I'm always ur full supporter!

Again, I still do not understand why Malaysia needs 4 Minsiter in PM's Dept. What does this dept do and why need 4 ministers? This must be the toughest of all ministerial job in the whole wide world that 4 ministers are needed. Absolutely unbelieveable.

YB Dato Seri Dr.Chua

Thre are positive change hope this trend will persist.Hoevever we must not be complacent , it is time for us to unite and work for rakyat.

[有正面的改变,但不应该自满,应该继续努力, 为人民服务, 为党团结而努力!!!]
至于马华继续维持4名部长及6副部长的格局。江作汉升正房屋部长,取代在党选中落败的黄家泉。至于黄燕燕专任旅游部长,翁诗杰继续执掌交通部,廖仲莱则继续担任卫生部长。

六名副部长则是,副财政部长则曹智雄、副教育部长魏家祥、副高教部长何国忠、以及今日受委为上议员的马华妇女组主席周美芬。至于两名入阁的新人则是副新闻部长王赛兹及副外交部长李志亮。

Perhaps the consolation that you could take is that even UMNO Youth Chief also not appointed as minister..

Correct, Datuk Seri Panglima! Unity and services come first, otherwise be prepared to close shop!

PutraMerang said...

Dr Chua. No plan to serve the people with Pakatan Rakyat? Still believe in UMNO the Ketuanan? No ball to fight for one Malaysia with PAS and DAP? Feel soory for you, the man with principle.

What streamlining are you talking about? Blind or what!

The minister posts reduced 2 but deputy minister posts add 3. You do the math. This is like the supermarket discount sale tries to fool the ignorant public.

I also share same though as I Swear, the Prime Minister Department must be one of the busier Department in this world because not only it has 4 Ministers but also FIVE (5) Deputy – total 9 ministers. It must be busier than the White House which only have one Chief of Staff and Press Secretary.

Malaysia has a population of say 26 millions and we have 25 Departments, 28 Ministers, 40 Deputy total 68 ministerial posts not counting all the secretary general etc.

US has a population of > 300 millions. Dr do you know how many Ministers they have? For your info the Federal Government of the US only has a mere 15 Departments.

China population is > 1.2 billions, how many ministers they have? Just look at these facts and tell me about streamlining. People are not stupid you know especially the younger generation now a day.

Each Minister is given 6 months to come out with their job function and Key Performance Index. Do you mean to tell us our Minister work function and responsibilities are not defined until now? And ask anyone, do they define what they should do and performance. Their boss will ask you to go to hell. He will tell you what you should do and the limit of your performance standards. If you don't perform out you go not. He will not remove any imaginary obstacle for you. Some time thing like this really crack me up!



On the side note, MCA appointment of minister posts. Currently MCA only have 15 MPs, minus the two Ong, Fong, your Son, there are only (15-4) 11 candidates for the (4+7) 11 posts. So practically all Tom and Jerry MCA MPs just sitting there or even lying there will get the minister post. You son is an unlucky one because he just happen to be your son and OTK just cannot tolerate him to be even a Deputy.

So is that anything to celebrate?

PR won the by-election and MCA & Gerakan gain more seats in cabinet.

Isn’t that a WIN-WIN situation! Suddenly there are all these silver lining on the cloud. What a beautiful world.

Tony Khoo said...

Dato Seri, you should start working together....................

Team A said...

Dato Seri, with due respect u should start working together with all the team A members including the Ong's brothers to wrest control back form OTK. Long Live Team A.

Mike said...

尽管新出炉的内阁被普遍上认为依旧臃肿,不过马华总会长翁诗杰今日指出,这已经算是一种“瘦身”。

You see this so-called leader of the 3rd largest Chinese Parties in the world, apparently never been to a supermarket sale and his math is just plain lousy. The minister posts reduced 2 but deputy minister posts add 3 and you end up being? You do that math.

询及其副手,即署理总会长蔡细历为何没入阁,翁诗杰反要记者先做功课,去翻阅宪法。

本来看似心情不错的翁诗杰,在听到这个问题后马上严正指出:“这是一个老问题,其实我在过去数天也已经回答。你应该先做功课,请你看一看宪法,宪法有提到,只有国会议员或者上议员才能受委为部长。”

He can appoint CMF through the back door to become a Senator but not you a more qualified Candidate. Why?

I will give me a finger and F him but then again this is your life.

Pak Pandil said...

OTK is too much....His days in MCA are numbered. He is just like Pak Lah; won't last very long.....I'm not a MCA member but I don't think it is fair for MCA No.2 not being given a cabinet post.

Village Boy said...

许子根否认,他在大选期间曾说过,不会以受委上议员的方式进入内阁的言论。

哈哈,又出现了一条变色龙!

Loo said...

Najib finally managed to get all his men into the system, one which will face a real challenge from the rakyat.
If we analyse it properly, some of the senators and MPs, including Mukhriz, who were selected to hold a minister’s or deputy minister’s post are basically losers. Meaning to say, they are ‘rejects’. They are already ‘expired’! Please don’t recycle them!
They were either rejected during the 308 political tsunami or during the Umno elections recently. Is this what we call democracy?
Getting someone rejected by the rakyat into the cabinet is totally unwarranted! It becomes a laughing stock! The world is watching us!

jchuash said...

Dato Seri,

I agree with Ivan Tan,Tony Khoo and Team A that you should start working.....
because despite being a Deputy in the party, them No 1 "Bo Coin Lu".

Best of luck

To Comrade Dr.Chua and all other comrades

笔者吴和豪,我所了解的[卓越文化]
Lebih Kurang 在英文是 More or Less在华文是差不
多, 日文是いい加減。
一念天堂, 一念地狱。有时秋毫之差也能造成天渊之別。
一分之差別,可能就会影响一个学生的升学的机会。
一点的电压差別,可能大大影响机器的功能。
医药专员的判断,可能会决定一个病人的生与死。
一元的差別, 也可能造成赚与损。翻译的差別也可能造成
不同的谈判结果,而导致了和平与战争。
卓越文化并不是新的名词,新的概念。儒家提倡[仁民爱物,止于至善]古时候老子也曾经说过 大成若缺,其用不弊。 大盈若冲,其用不穷。 大直若屈,大巧若拙,大辩若讷。 躁胜寒,静胜热,清静为天下正。
如以白话文来解释就是一个完成了的系统还有不足的地方,应不断改善才它的功能才不会退竭。一个盈满的物体也有一些空间,所以它的用途可以被扩充。看似正直的也有歪曲的地方。练熟得艺匠总认为自己还苯拙。善于演讲的人总认为自己还不够流利。冷静可以克服躁烦,清新的气象及安定的环境是社会处于正轨的象征。
古时候中华名族所实行的卓越文化的其中要素包括了[虚心学习,爱护自然资源,注重人与人之间的关怀]。
[改善]多数的华人都会读,[改善]在日语读作[KAIZEN]已经成为了
普世接受的概念及经营价值。战后日本一群有识之士,懂的东方哲
学的重要,而把这些东方哲学的精华融入会舍得经营当中。这些东
方哲学的成功引用也使[KAIZEN]成为了普世接受的概念及经营价值。

与[改善]有紧密关联的[卓越文化]通常是通过全系统品质管理来实
行,目的并不是要求要求每样事件要做的真正完美,而也要考虑到
合理性,因为鸡蛋里找骨头会造成的浪费。
所以卓越文化主要的目的是要在有限的人力资源,设备资源, 物
料资源之下,通过合理的方式来不断改善以求永续发展
