Pakatan has not kept promises, says Soi Lek

SEREMBAN: Pakatan Rakyat leaders have not done anything about pledges they made during the 2008 general election, said MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.

“See for yourselves if there have been changes or any big difference since they assumed power in some states,” he said.

Dr Chua added many Pakatan representatives were nowhere to be seen after winning the seats.

“In fact, all the work in the constituencies where the Barisan lost is still being carried out by us from Barisan. We are the ones who are still serving the rakyat,” he told some 1,000 people at a Deepavali gathering organised by the Rahang MCA at Taman Limau Emas on Tuesday.

Dr Chua urged the people to give their support to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak so the Government could continue with its economic transformation programme.

On party matters, Dr Chua said all divisions had been directed to organise events to engage the people from all walks of life.

“This is to show our (MCA’s) gratitude to the people at the grassroots level who had helped us in many ways,” he said.

Chua: More important to focus on consolidating MCA before party polls


KUALA LUMPUR: The MCA can postpone its elections which is due in March but it will have to amend its constitution before it can do so.

Party president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek said the central committee had discussed the postponement, and the election steering committee chaired by secretary-general Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha would have to study the matter.

“The steering committee will have to propose what to do if the elections are to be postponed.

“Many feel that the party is now more united and stable and it is good that we focus on further consolidating the party.

“Unity and stability (in the party) is important to face the next general election,” he said after chairing the central committee meeting here yesterday.

Under the constitution, the party can only decide whether to postpone its elections if it is due 42 months after the last general election.

The elections is due next March – only 36 months from the last general election in March 2008.

Kong said the steering committee would meet before year’s end and any amendments to the constitution would have to be passed by the general assembly, meaning an extraordinary general meeting must be convened for that purpose.

Meanwhile, Dr Chua said the party had recruited 17,378 new members this year, 70% of them below 45 years of age.

In 2008, there were 783 recruits.

“The 22-fold increase shows a return of the people’s confidence in the party,” he said, adding that the membership now stood at 970,000.

He said female members aged below 45 could also opt to join the party’s Youth wing.

Wanita MCA chief Datuk Yu Chok Tow said the Wanita membership stood at 385,000 and giving women the option to join the Wanita or Youth wings would enable the party to recruit more members.

Dr Chua also announced the dates for several party events next year:

> First president Tun Tan Cheng Lock’s memorial commemoration in Malacca on Jan 8;

> Chinese New Year open house at Wisma MCA, Kuala Lumpur, on Feb 3 at 9.30am;

> Media night at Wisma MCA on Feb 18;

> MCA 62nd anniversary at Wisma MCA on Feb 27.

蔡細歷:沒必要回應‧翁詩傑自講自聽自爽

(吉隆坡13日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷今日以“自己講、自己聽、自己爽”,來回應前總會長拿督斯里翁詩傑懷疑他“偏聾”的言論。

他更調侃地說:“對,我甚麼都比不上他,這樣就好了……他領導(馬華)一年半非常好,表現是特殊的,每個人都知道,所以他可以繼續講,自己講、自己聽、自己爽。”

他出席張明添基金免息貸學金頒發儀式時,受詢及有關翁詩傑就馬來主權論課題的追擊指出,他沒有必要回應翁詩傑。“他(翁詩傑)是前輩,領導馬華、處理黨務一年半做得非常好,我們哪裡敢評論他或回應他?”

“翁詩傑的表現是黨內外公認的,所以他講的話,我不敢回應得罪他。這個人不可以得罪的,因為他是偉大的領袖,也是前總會長、前輩,好像沒禮貌地回應他、去反駁他是不對的。”

問及他有否向巫統屈服,他要記者去問翁詩傑這個問題,因為翁氏甚麼都很清楚。

另外,受詢及維基泄密事件,蔡細歷拒絕回應。

一個半月籌獲1000萬 醫藥基金獲各界支持

此外,蔡細歷也指出,一個馬華醫藥基金獲得社會人士熱烈支持,在短短一個半月內籌獲1千萬令吉款項,因此,馬華有意在明年增設馬華教育基金。

他相信,教育是社會人士關注的一環,因此教育基金也將會獲得社會人士的關注。

在場者包括張明添基金免息貸學金遴選委員會委員拿督李志亮、拿督吳紹閥、拿督張日洲、鍾啟章、陳國歡、余天仁、馬華總財政拿督斯里陳財和和中委盧誠國。

PKR will continue to lose public support, says Soi Lek

CAMERON HIGHLANDS: Public support for PKR will continue to slide as more people begin to understand the party, said MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.

While the party claimed to be fighting for reforms, it could not even conduct its party election properly, he said.

“Irregularities, fraud and cheating are not investigated and accounted for,” he said.

“Even its own party members do not have confidence in the party election,” he told reporters after closing the Pahang MCA Cadres Brainstorming Camp here yesterday.

“They cannot have a party that shouts for democracy but its su­­preme leader is not elected by anybody,” he said in reference to a Universiti Malaya study that PKR’s troubled polls last month had affected confidence in the party.

Apparently, 43% of those polled said they would not vote for PKR in the next general election while 35% said they would still support the party.

Respondents pointed to the party’s internal strife and leadership problems as a key factor affecting their support.

The study was conducted by the university’s Democratic Research and Elections Centre during the PKR party polls last month.

The respondents were from Cheras, Bandar Tun Razak, Titiwangsa, Ampang, Bukit Bintang, Subang Jaya, Wangsa Maju and Lembah Pantai.

On another matter, Dr Chua said it was a waste of time to guess the date of the next general election.

“Our main concern is to ensure all divisions are ready to face the election,” he said, adding that the MCA had yet to decide whether to postpone its party polls.

Dr Chua also denied speculation that the party had identified candidates for the general election.

“I am aware that some members have been going around saying that they had met me or other party leaders to get their blessings as candidates,” he said.

However, he said MCA candidates would be chosen based on the chances of winning.

蔡細歷:勝算最重要 馬華候選人不分派系

(金馬崙11日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷強調,在遴選候選人方面,馬華是不分派系和沒有性別歧視,只要他或她可以中選就可以上陣,包括尋求蟬聯的在位議員,馬華推荐的最重要是勝算高的候選人。

他也說,馬華未決定是否延后黨選,目前也未鑑定候選人。

他說,或許有人向外宣布,指已見了總會長、署理總會長及副總會長,並且得到高層領袖的祝福。

但蔡氏澄清,馬華至今仍未圈定上陣大選最后人選,當事人祇是在自吹自擂,自己確認身分而已。

做好準備迎戰大選

蔡細歷今天在金馬崙高原,為馬華彭亨州領袖腦力激勵營主持閉幕禮,續與馬華領袖舉行閉門會議后,向記者發表談話。

他說,馬華內部有訂下鑑定候選人機制和方針,但不會向外公布,唯馬華也不是首次面對大選。

他認為,巫統決定延至18個月后才黨選,是巫統決定,與馬華無關。唯他在此刻亦不能代表馬華作出任何決定。

“馬華各區會必須做好準備,迎戰大選。若整天在猜測大選,祇是浪費時間。”

蔡細歷說,2天的馬華領袖腦力激勵營,主要討論如何確保黨團結與穩定,提高黨員鬥志和士氣。馬華接下來會展開選戰工作,值得欣慰的是彭亨、柔佛以及森美蘭的馬華黨員都能團結一致。

蔡细历:槟港口私营化课题 槟政府未呈函财政部

(槟城10日讯)甫受委为槟州港务局主席的马华总会长拿督斯里蔡细历说,在本周一召开的国家经济理事会会议,首相署和财政部都没有接获槟州政府针对槟州港口私营化课题的来信。

蔡细历也是国家经济理事会成员。他在会议上询问首相署部长丹斯里诺莫哈末和第二财长拿督斯里胡斯尼,两人异口同声地表示没接获槟州政府任何来信。

刚走马上任当上槟州港务局主席的蔡细历,于周五早上9时正现身在槟港务局办公室,与董事们召开首次董事会议;他在为时3小时的会议结束后召开记者会。

他说,会议上没谈及槟港口私营化课题,任何私营化计划全要通过财政部批准,港务局也仅能提供意见。

他也说,把槟港口私营化一事将带上国家经济理事会会议上讨论。不过,他拒绝回应何时会这么做,仅表示开会讨论一项课题,是需要拟定议程的。

“不了解谁在私营化”

当回应传闻身为国家经济理事会一员的他之所以出掌槟港务局,原因是可在槟港口私营化课题上扮演协调人,蔡细历形容这是记者的猜测,幽默地说自己没有这个本事和力量。

当他获悉前任主席陈清凉也这么说时,他认为这是陈清凉的看法。因为,他身为国家经济理事会成员,比较可以了解槟城甚至全国港口问题。

询及私营化槟港口一事是否言之过早,他如此回应:“还没有啦!其实我还不了解谁在私营化。”

新官上任第一把火:勿政治化槟港口发展

槟州港务局新任主席蔡细历新官上任三把火,其中一把火就是希望中央和槟州政府合作,不要政治化槟城港口的发展。

蔡细历的另一把火是:首相拿督斯里纳吉曾吩咐他,虽来自不同的政党,但要确保港口的发展取得理想成绩,让槟城人和国家受惠。

最后一把火是,槟城港口具有很大的发展潜能,除了货运外也能朝旅游发展,因此,下次会议上将商讨有利槟城和大马的港口发展计划。

蔡细历透露,槟城港口今年创下100万货柜吞吐量的记录,名列全马第三;第一是巴生港口,第二柔佛丹绒柏勒巴斯港口,第四则是柔佛巴西古当港口。

“槟城港口今年所取得的辉煌成绩,更是有史以来首年领先柔佛巴西古当港口。”

蔡細歷重申 “馬華效忠正副首相”

(吉隆坡9日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷今日重申,馬華絕對效忠首相拿督斯里納吉和副首相丹斯里慕尤丁。

他指出,有關“大哥”或“小弟”的用詞,是希望提醒巫統黨員,不要做出超越兩位領導人的事情。

“我們明白和接受事實,國陣是由納吉和慕尤丁領導,他們是我們的‘老板’和國陣的公認領導人,這是大家接受的方程式。”

他接受《每日新聞》訪問時,這么指出。

他說,在政權分享概念下,成員黨都能夠表態,他強調不分“大哥”或“小弟”沒有任何議程,單純只是為了提醒巫統黨員罷了。

Dr Chua: Chinese intake can solve shortage of teachers

PUTRAJAYA: Unified Examination Certificate (UEC) graduates from Chinese independent schools can enrol in government teachers training colleges from next year.

The entry criterion is a minimum of four credit pass in UEC, including a mandatory pass in Mandarin and SPM-level Bahasa Malaysia.

MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek announced the decision after discussions with Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin on ways to recognise the roles of these schools in training educated manpower.

The UEC examination, equivalent to the STPM, is for students who have completed six years of education in Chinese independent high schools.

“We are very happy that the Chinese independent schools’ role in nurturing talent is being acknowledged by the Government.

“Qualified graduates are encouraged to apply, and I hope more will do so as they can help solve the shortage of teachers in the country,” Dr Chua said here yesterday.

Describing the development as encouraging, he expressed hope that it would be a stepping stone to wider acceptance of UEC graduates by the Government.

“Future discussions will include allowing the graduates to enrol in public universities,” he said.

Dr Chua thanked Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, Muhyiddin and the United Chinese School Committees’ Association (Dong Zong) for suggestions to solve this long-standing problem.

Dong Zong president Dr Yap Sin Tian, who described the decision as a good move, said: “We are thankful, and we will continue to engage the Government to fully recognise the UEC in future.”

A total of 60,481 students enrolled in the 60 Chinese independent schools in the country this year.

蔡细历:中文等3科目优等 独中生可申请师训


(布城6日讯)马华总会长拿督斯里蔡细历医生说,副首相兼教育部长丹斯里慕尤丁已同意,明年起独中毕业生可凭着包括中文在内的三个统考科目优等,以及大马教育文凭国语优等成绩申请进入师训,解决华小缺乏师资问题。

他说,过去独中毕业生无法申请进入师训,如今政府这项决定,对多年悬而未决的承认统考文凭课题是一项重大的突破。

争取更多机会

他说,承认统考文凭课题超过30多年的问题,这是必须逐步解决问题。他感谢首相拿督斯里纳吉及慕尤丁认同独中生所扮演的角色,还有董总提出的建议,促使这些问题得以解决。

他希望未来独中统考生,可以获得更多机会,包括争取让独中生申请进入本地大学及申请其他公务员职。

“明年起,只要独中生符合上述条件,特别是毕业生拥有大马教育文凭国语优等成绩,即可申请进入师训。这次师训申请能让独中生的统考成绩为主,算是很大的突破。”他今日在酒店内召开记者会时,这么说。

首相抨击民联无可厚非

蔡细历医生认为,国阵大会是政治平台,绝对可以发表政治言论,因此首相兼国阵主席拿督斯里纳吉在国阵大会抨击民联无可厚非。

他反击民联领袖,应该搞好内部事务及维持党稳定,实践向人民许诺的改革,而不是一味抨击国阵。

他是回应民联议员抨击纳吉利用国阵大会抨击民联,捞取政治资本一事,在记者会上这么说。

没商展延马华党选课

蔡细历强调,国阵在3·08大选后已作出多项改革,如经济及政治转型计划,然而民联虽然执政多个州属,但却没有做出任何改革。

“民联有11个国州议员退党,如果只是一、两个可以说金钱政治,但现在11人退党及批评民联,民联应该自我检讨及管理好内部问题,不要一味批评国阵。”

他也以雪州水供问题为例,认为民联雪州政府应该优先以民为本,优先解决水供问题。

蔡细历指出,马华中委会没有讨论展延明年马华党选课题。

他说,目前只是马青在记者会上建议展延马华党选,并没有向母体提呈正式的建议。

他说,除非有人正式向中委会提出展延马华党选课题,那中委会才会讨论。

全力配合州政府发展槟港口

槟州港务局新任主席拿督斯里蔡细历强调,他会以槟州及全国人民利益为本,全力与槟州政府配合发展港口潜能,绝对不会以政治利益出发。

他说,他会以发展槟州港口为最终目标,愿意与州政府全力配合。

蔡细历也是马华总会长,他今日在记者会上,针对出任槟州港务局主席一事,这么说。

针对槟州政府献意私营化港口,他说,任何私营化计划必须进过经济策划局讨论。

他说,若这项计划是能惠及全民及槟州人民,相信中央政府会接纳有关建议。

国语优等是基本条件

针对若独中生所考取的大马教育文凭国语没有优等,是否可以申请师训后再补考,蔡细历说,这是技术问题,必须与教育部做进一步探讨。

询及是否有可能让独中生无需以国语优等成绩申请加入师训,他说,国语优等是作为公务员的基本条件,任何有意成为教师的毕业生,都必须符合条件。

他解释,每个国家都有本身的条件,如在欧美国家学生的英文必须及格,所以在我国若要申请为公务员必须确保国语优等。针对很多独中生没有报考大马教育文凭,他说,“很多独中生都有报考大马教育文凭。如果是没有报考国语,那将无法申请为公务员。”

Chua calls for equality

----->Light moment: Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin (right) talking with (from left) Barisan secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor, Dr Chua, Second Finance Minister Datuk Husni Hanadzlah and Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu (partially hidden) before the convention at Wisma MCA Sunday.


KUALA LUMPUR: Every Barisan Nasional component party should have an equal voice to raise issues affecting the people to ensure it is the coalition of choice, Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek said.

The MCA president said the people always came first, pointing out that Barisan had to articulate the hopes, fears, expectations and frustrations of the various communities in the country.

As such, he said, each component party must be accorded full respect on the basis of power sharing.

“There should not be any big brother or small brother within the coalition. We are working towards the same cause and purpose. We are equals,” said Dr Chua at the Barisan convention here yesterday.

Describing the convention as “most crucial”, particularly with the buzz of an impending general election getting louder, Dr Chua noted that Barisan must not be seen as merely collaborating during elections, adding that there must be genuine power sharing at all times.

He said there was a need for Barisan parties to work as equal partners and that decisions pertaining to policies should not be announced at the Umno general assembly or at its supreme council meetings, which was not equivalent to Cabinet status.

Dr Chua also expressed concern over the public delivery system which very often did not reflect the thinking of the Barisan government, calling on the Government to address such weaknesses.

“We have to accept reality and weaknesses in our system and act accordingly to improve on it. We can no longer live in denial,” he said.

After the convention, Dr Chua said component parties reached a consensus that no party should favour a particular race but should give equal treatment to all.

“No political party should take care only its own race, it should be for all,” he said, adding that the atmosphere at the closed-door event was encouraging and in high spirits.

國陣大會:蔡細歷:避免公僕濫權‧應設賞罰管理機制

------>國陣大會讓許多國陣領袖有機會聚集在一起,慕尤丁(右)和蔡細歷在台上的交流非常頻密。(圖:星洲日報)


(吉隆坡5日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷說,政府應該設立一個賞罰分明的公務員管理機制,有效地懲罰違反一個馬來西亞理念的公務員。

“在這方面,我們不應有任何的妥協!因此,我認為是時候重新檢討執行1933公共服務局通令下,有關公共服務局被賦予權力辭退犯錯的公務員的條款。

“這是要確保不會繼續發生公務員濫權,特別是確保公務員的權利不會超越一個民選部長的權利。”

對症下藥克服弱點

很多時候我們都發現,公共服務領域往往和國陣的決策背道而馳,政府應該認真看待這個問題,對症下藥採取行動克服這些弱點。

蔡細歷在國陣大會上致詞時說:“如果公共服務領域的表現依然和我們的目標差距懸殊,那可以預知我們將面對更艱鉅的挑戰。”

他說,今日社會不能繼續被這樣的情況“牽絆”或“挾持”;公共服務局應該對公務員的言行操守負責,確保政府的公共傳遞系統操作順利和有效率的執行任務。

“我認為,政府賦予公共服務局在擢升、採取紀律對付和解雇公務員上有很足夠的權力。”

“我感到納悶,為甚麼這個情況依然會發生?

我們應該有一套更有效的賞罰機制,在獎勵表現良好的公務員的同時,也讓犯錯的公務員得到應有的處罰。”

蔡細歷指國陣大會 非為準備來屆大選

(吉隆坡5日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷否認召開國陣大會,是為了明年全國大選做好準備,相信全國大選並非傳言中在明年3月或4月舉行。

“首相發表的政策演詞,旨提醒成員黨不要忘記親民、解決民困,以及加強各黨的鬥志精神,所以有人猜測說大選落在明年3月或4月,我說不可能。”

蔡細歷出席國陣代表大會時,在記者會上這么指出。

他承認,首相在政策演說時提及的4大弊病,在國陣成員黨中已存在多年,而且必須依靠自己作出改變。

“國陣執政53年,一些領袖皆幻想自己獲人民支持、忘記領袖是人民選出來、認為是受命于元首選出和不求改變。”

針對首相的演詞內容,蔡細歷認為,首相傳達一個訊息給國陣政府,即必須改變,要一個以民為主,一個全民的政府,要包容全民。

他說,各民族必須合作及和諧,沒有各民族的合作,政府的計劃和轉型不會成功,這是最基本的條件。

回應民聯若執政吉祥任副揆‧蔡:副首相無實權‧屬表面好看掛名職

-----> 全体合照.


(吉隆坡30日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷聲稱,國家憲法並沒有賦予副首相實權,如果沒有首相與內閣賦予權力,副首相一職其實只不過是“放著好看”的挂名職位而已。

蔡細歷在週一晚與面子書網友共進晚餐,回复網友提問公正黨實權領袖拿督斯里安華在接受華文媒體訪問時談及若民聯執政,將委任民主行動黨國會領袖林吉祥為副首相,是否會影響國陣華裔選票流失時,發表以上言論。

抨安華玩廉價政治宣傳

他表示,委任副首相是一種廉價的政治宣傳,是否賦予副揆實權才是重點,當安華說到指華人可擔任副首相的消息時,的確讓華裔選民聽起來“感覺良好”,而此舉目的也只不過是要吸引華裔選票,但在這同時也會影響馬來選票。

“副首相在國家憲法並無實權,而是由首相和內閣賦予權力,因此大馬的副首相通常會掌管一個部門。”

蔡細歷與近百名網友交流晚宴上,除了談及國家政局、經濟轉型、華社課題及馬華的政治影響力的問題之外,網友也追問趙明福命案、馬華是否會退出國陣及馬華直接掌控《星報》等時事課題。

馬華並無退出國陣理由

另外,蔡細歷指出,民聯雖然口口聲聲表示要跨越種族,不看膚色治理州屬,但從雪蘭莪州貸學金申請的華裔及印裔學生寥寥無幾,以及吉打州實施30%土著土地固打制等,就可看出民聯“講一套,做一套”。

“因此,我希望華社不要總是以“又要馬兒好,又要馬兒不吃草”的心態,而是應給予馬華更多的支持,以讓馬華繼續能與政府討論更多華社福祉。”

最後,他說到,馬華並沒有任何退出國陣的理由,因為國陣成員黨有國陣的精神,不像民聯三黨的團結已蕩然無存。而馬華與國陣將會一起捍衛布城,為人民爭取更好的將來。

Soi Lek takes questions from 100 Facebook fans

PETALING JAYA: About 100 of MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek’s Facebook fans had the opportunity to meet him in person, pose questions on various issues and got treated to dinner.

They brought up topics like the Chinese community, the country, the party and the next general election.

When asked if he would defend his president’s post in the next party election, he said it was too early to tell.

“I am more concerned about the general election than the party election. I am more concerned about consolidating and strengthening the party and resolving long-standing issues so that it is more prepared for the next general election,” he added.

When asked when the general election would be held, he said: “If PKR continues fighting every day, there is a chance Barisan Nasional will hold it faster.”

On the proposed RM5bil 100-storey Warisan Merdeka, Dr Chua said those who objected to it were the same people who objected to the North-South Expressway (NSE), the Penang Bridge and other Federal Government projects.

“One must not forget that when the Government wanted to build the NSE, the Opposition went to court to get an injunction to stop it. Today people know its importance.”

He added that there would be another session with his fans before the Chinese New Year.

“无论是什么体育项目,都需要年轻一代来推动,而被列为学校正课之一的武术,则将获得更多年轻人喜爱。

“晚宴邀请武术队,除恭贺及鼓励他们的成就外,也是一种肯定武术在我国地位的方式。”

另一方面,蔡细历也在会上预先颁发3万令吉及1万令吉的奖励金予广州亚运会太极全能赛金牌得主蔡奉芸及南拳、南刀全能铜牌得主戴巧玄。

MCA pledge RM200,000 to wushu for Asiad success

------>Well done: MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek (centre) congratulating wushu’s Asian Games gold and bronze medallists, Chai Fong Ying (second from left) and Tai Cheau Xuen, at an appreciation dinner yesterday. Looking on are MCA deputy president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai (right) and Wushu Federation of Malaysia president Datuk Seri Kee Yong Wee.


KUALA LUMPUR: MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek pledged RM200,000 to the Wushu Federation of Malaysia as a recogntion of their achievements in the Guangzhou Asian Games.

Chua said the federation were very motivated and organised, and that they should be provided with any resources they needed.

“My deputy has said there will be no problem in seeking sponsors to raise that amount,” he said during a dinner he hosted to honour the national wushu team yesterday.

Chua also promised a RM30,000 cash prize to wushu gold medallist Chai Fong Ying and RM10,000 to bronze medallist Tai Cheau Xuen. Chua’s deputy, Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, said MCA was glad to assist the federation as wushu was not a heavily sponsored sport.

“We are pleased with their achievements and we are here to help,” said Liow.

Also present at the dinner were Wushu Federation of Malaysia president Datuk Seri Kee Yong Wee and other MCA leaders.

Kee said the federation hoped wushu could be promoted to all.

“Although Malaysia did not win any medals in the last Olympic Games, our first medal in the next Games may come from wushu,” he said.

‘Give younger candidates a go’, says Chua

TANGKAK: MCA may field candidates from among the younger generation in the next general election if they can win the seats for Barisan Nasional.

Party president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek said it was important to train the younger generation so they would one day take over the leadership of the party.

Speaking to reporters here, he said MCA leaders at all levels should encourage the younger members to be actively involved in party activities.

“We want the younger generation to be given the opportunity to lead and we should give them the space to develop from now.

“We also want party leaders to engage more youths as they make up the majority of the population,” he said after launching the Ledang MCA Youth Sunshine cultural show here on Thursday night.

Dr Chua said it was wrong to assume that all young people were anti-government as recent studies by the party showed some were strong supporters of Barisan Nasional.

Studies had shown that about 40% of the youths were still undecided whom to support but they indicated that they would vote according to the performance of the party.

Party leaders should work hard to win the support of this 40% and capitalise on the recent election fiasco in PKR as many of the youths were disillusioned by the opposition party.

“The PKR election fiasco is an eye-opener to all that the Opposition cannot even conduct elections properly and its leaders are leaving the party one by one.

“Those who had left the PKR had openly claimed that they had lost confidence and that there was no democracy in the party,” he said, adding that the youths should be able to evaluate the current political scenario for themselves.

Dr Chua also said the Government’s recent economic transformation programme would create at least three million jobs in the next 10 years.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s decision to provide scholarships to students who scored at least 9As irrespective of their race was also a good sign.

“The Government is trying to be as fair as possible to everyone and we urge the youths to support the economic transformation programme,” he said.

The programme, if successfully implemented, would benefit everyone in terms of income, standard of living and better job opportunities, he added.

蔡細歷:多為“中立派” 爭取40%年輕選票

(東甲26日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷醫生指出,馬華將爭取40%的“中立派”年輕人,支持馬華與國陣。

他披露,說年輕人反政府是不對的,並非所有年輕人都反政府,有不少年輕人是國陣死硬派的支持者,但也有不少是反對黨的擁護者。

他說,308大選過后,馬華展開二次全面性的民意調查,除了國陣和反對黨都有死硬派的支持者,目前尚有40%的年輕人是“中立派”,還未決定支持在朝的國陣或在野的民聯。

年輕人走一步看一步

他補充,這些年輕人還沒有決定與選擇,他們走一步看一步,不過,他們將視朝野政黨的表現,靜觀其變才投下手中一票,這意味著馬華及國陣尚有希望。

“馬華必須努力工作來得到他們的認同,爭取這40%的年輕人,支持馬華和國陣政府。“

蔡細歷昨晚為馬青禮讓區團主催,禮讓陽光青年俱樂部主辦,禮讓國中華文學會、敦瑪末國中華文學會及斯里東甲國中華文學會協辦的“我們不平凡文娛晚會”主持開幕時,這么指出。

他強調,黨不能脫節,馬華需要更多年輕人來接班,通過老中青配合,黨才能強大。

“我們要看到馬華各區會三機構組織都有團隊精神,如果各自為政而無法團結,馬華就很難贏得民心。”

提到年輕一代的馬青時,蔡細歷認為應給年輕人一些空間與機會,發揮他們的才華。

“黨考慮給年輕一代(馬青)成為來屆大選的候選人,我們必須確保所委派的候選人,能夠在大選中取得勝利。”

KTAR may become a varsity college

KUALA LUMPUR: The MCA is planning to upgrade Kolej Tunku Abdul Rahman (KTAR) into a university college, said its president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.

He said a committee had been set up to look into its fee and course structures after the upgrade.

The members in the committee are Deputy Education Minister Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong, Deputy Higher Education Minister Dr Hou Kok Chung and KTAR and Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (Utar) council member Tan Sri Dr Fong Chan Onn.

“We will ensure that KTAR will continue to provide affordable and quality tertiary education to all Malaysians,” he told reporters after chairing the MCA presidential council meeting yesterday.

The MCA founded KTAR in 1969.

On another matter, Dr Chua said another committee chaired by Dr Wee had been set up to look into issues related to conforming schools (Sekolah Menengah Jenis Kebangsaan).

The committee will have about two weeks to draft a memorandum to be submitted to the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minis ter.

On the 1MCA Medical Founda tion, Dr Chua said the criteria for those who could apply for financial aid had been drafted and would be posted on the party’s website by this week.

Deputy president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, who was at the meeting, said a charity dinner to raise funds for the foundation to be launched by the Prime Minister would be held on Dec 13.

On the bidding of car registration numbers bearing the letters MCA, Dr Chua said he would not bid for the number plate MCA 1.

“If other MCA leaders are interested in bidding for the registration number, they can go ahead to do so but we (the party) will not help them,” he said.

Dr Chua also said party members who announced their intention to quit the party in public would be considered to have tendered a formal resignation.

“This is because some of them have gained a lot of publicity in the media when they made such announcements but when we wrote to them to ask about their status, they denied that they had quit,” he said.

蔡細歷:長期受忽略‧助78改制中學解決問題

------->蔡細歷:任何馬華領袖若想擁有“MCA 1”車牌號碼,可自由競標,但我們不會協助他們拿到這個車牌。(圖:光明日報)



(吉隆坡23日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷說,在馬華努力之下,華小及獨中問題已逐步獲得解決,馬華下一步將協助全國78間受到政府忽略的國民型中學。

他表示,馬華成立一個以馬青總團長拿督魏家祥為首的“全國國民型中學研討小組”,將收集國民型中學的種種問題,包括撥款、發展及母語教學課程等,然後草擬一份備忘錄提呈給首相拿督斯里納吉及教育部長丹斯里慕尤丁。

希望首相正視問題

“華小及獨中問題已逐步解決,我們是時候去協助國民型中學,我認為國民型中學長期受到忽略,希望正副首相能正視這些中學的問題。”

週二,蔡細歷主持馬華會長理事會議之後,在記者會上如此告訴媒體。國民型中學也稱為改制中學,全國共有78間,學生人數超過13萬人。

過後,魏家祥表示,國民型中學面對的問題已持續50年,相關的資料及報告早已存在,只需要重新消化即可。

“我們曾與有關學校對話,確認問題所在,因此兩週時間去進行研究已足夠了。”

另外,馬華成立“一個馬華醫藥基金指南”,馬華署理主席兼衛生部長拿督斯里廖中萊表示,需要醫藥資助的人士可到馬華官網下載申請表格,並通過州聯委會及區會呈交表格。

他說,首相納吉將在12月13日為該基金主持推介,各州馬華也能配合中央舉辦籌款晚會。

無意競標
MCA1車牌號碼

蔡細歷強調,他無意競標即將推出市場的“MCA1”車牌號碼。

“任何馬華領袖想擁有這個車牌號碼,可自由競標,我們不會協助他們拿到這個車牌。”

詢及馬六甲州馬華建議蔡細歷應該使用“MCA1”車牌,但是他表示不想擁有,“他們可以建議,但我也有個人考量。”

一旦公開宣佈
將被視正式退黨

馬華會長理事會議決,任何馬華黨員通過媒體來公開宣佈退黨,將被視為正式退黨。

蔡細歷說,一些黨員通過退黨來大做個人宣傳,已造成馬華的麻煩,從今天開始,那些公開說退黨的人將直接生效,不必再交退黨信。

“有者從沒交退黨信,就公開說自己已不是黨員、有者宣佈退黨後,又自稱是黨員,理由是尚未交辭職信,造成混淆。”

委3博士研究
拉曼學院升格大學

馬華委任“三博士”去研究將拉曼學院升格為“拉曼學院大學”(Tunku Abdul Rahman University College)。

蔡細歷說,會長理事會決定成立研究小組,探入研究拉曼學院升格問題,包括保持良好教學素質及低廉的學費。

小組的3名成員分別是擁有博士學歷的教育部副部長拿督魏家祥、高教部副部長何國忠及馬華經濟局主任拿督斯里馮鎮安,他們將利用兩週時間進行研究,預料會在下月帶到會長理事會討論。

他解釋,升格的目的是確保更多人有機會接受高等教育。一旦拉曼學院大學成立後,不會與現有的“拉曼學院大學”出現重疊,雙方依然各自為政及相輔相成。

否認巫統主導國陣

蔡細歷否認國陣是以巫統為主導,相反的,各個成員黨擁有同等地位、代表人數及分享政權,國陣兼巫統主席是扮演決策人。

他舉例,任何政黨想成為國陣成員黨,必須獲得大家的一致同意,並非由巫統作最後決定。

“傳統上,國陣主席就是巫統主席兼首相,只有他一人擁有特別權力去進行決策,決定各成員所討論的結果。”

他強調,馬華不曾質疑或不滿國陣修改黨章,以便讓社團、青年之友成為國陣直屬黨員。

他說,直屬黨員是經過各成員黨的深入討論及一致同意才落實,馬華不可能會反對。

“直屬黨員的加入,馬華及其他成員黨的權益不會受到剝削,因為首相兼國陣主席納吉說過,直屬黨員成為大選候選人,必須獲得所有成員黨的同意。”

他希望“分享政權”不只是口號,通過國陣代表大會加強各成員黨的聯繫及合作,從中央、州級及縣級的領袖都能分享政權及工作。

党员若向媒体公开宣布 蔡细历:退党即刻生效

(吉隆坡23日讯)马华总会长拿督斯里蔡细历医生指出,只要任何马华党员向媒体公开宣布退党,即表示马上生效。

不竞标MCA1车牌

他说,马华党部便会立即承认他们退党,不会理会有关党员是否已呈交退党信。

另外,询及马华马六甲州联委会建议总部竞标MCA1号车牌给总会长使用,蔡细历说,他不会竞标。

他说:“他们有他们的建议,我也有自己的考量,任何马华领袖对有关车牌有兴趣,可以自行竞标,但马华党部不会给予协助。”

他今日主持马华会长理事会后,这样说。

提到会长理事会欲把拉曼学院升格拉曼大学学院,蔡细历说,他已委任会长理事会成员丹斯里冯镇安博士、马青总团长拿督魏家祥博士以及高教部副部长拿督何国忠博士成立特别委员会,跟进此事。

他说,上述三人将在两个星期内收集资料及讨论,协助党推动这项计划,确保拉曼大学学院的收费公道。

此外,针对国阵修改章程,增设直属党员、附属党员、青年俱乐部及青年之友俱乐部,蔡细历表示,国阵修改章程并没有剥夺马华的权利。

“我们清楚我们的权利,更何况首相说,即使要从直属党员中挑选候选人,也需要获得国阵成员党的同意。”

蔡細歷:經濟應全面開放‧4因素轉型成敗關鍵

----->葉明興(左起)、彼咯工商俱樂部主席陳亞來、蔡智勇、蔡細歷、黎天發和鄧月勝合照。(圖:星洲日報)


(柔佛‧昔加末21日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷表示,國家經濟轉型計劃是否成功,取決於人民支持與響應、培育人才、有效實行及政治決心等四大因素。

他昨晚出席彼咯工商俱樂部慶祝成立6週年紀念暨籌募建會所基金聯歡晚宴時指出,人民是國家的股東,國家要有發展,人民才能分享經濟蛋糕。國家每年有6%的經濟成長率,人民就能受惠。他也表示有信心明年的經濟成長率能夠達致7%。

他說,首相拿督斯里納吉高度重視國家經濟發展是對的,因為飯碗比政治重要。

“納吉去年宣佈一系列的經濟開放措施,包括部份行業取消30%的土著固打制,但馬華認為政府應該全面開放。”

他說,在近期舉辦的華商研討會上,他也反映了政府需透明化、民主化,以及公平對待各族才能獲得人民的支持。

上億援金不如百元回饋金‧細歷:國陣撥款不討好

------>蔡細歷代表馬華捐款1萬令吉給Agathiansshelter庇護之家;左為“生命的彩虹”社會關懷計劃創辦人林麗沄。(圖:光明日報)


(雪蘭莪‧八打靈再也20日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷說,國陣政府通過福利部每年撥出幾億令吉援助貧窮大眾,人民卻不以為然,但民聯檳城州政府只是撥出100令吉回饋金給樂齡人士,人民卻認為民聯比國陣好。

他說,福利部一年撥出幾億令吉,大約每個月300令吉給貧苦人士,民聯一年只給65歲以上樂齡人士100令吉,等於每個月給8令吉而已。

援金申請宣傳不足

他週六下午出席“生命的彩虹金絲帶,兒童節圓夢活動2010”

時,在記者會上表示,“政府花了很多錢,人民仍認為民聯做得比較好,這對國陣是不公平的。”

他表示,國陣最高理事會會議上提出福利部援助金申請問題,例如官員態度不佳、沒有公平處理申請手續,“一些國語欠佳的華族同胞不懂得填寫表格,官員發現表格不齊全,就放在一邊,沒有去跟進。”

“巫統婦女組主席兼婦女、家庭及社會發展部部長拿督斯里莎麗扎在會議上承認宣傳不足及申請手續有太多繁文縟節,並答應於明年加強宣傳,同時簡化行政及申請手續。”

詢及援助金申請是否需要兼具多種語文時,蔡細歷勸告華裔掌握好三語,重視母語教育的同時,也得掌握好國語,因為掌握國語在政府行政上是十分的重要。

受委經濟理事會成員助表達華社課題

對受委為國家經濟理事會成員,蔡細歷認為,這個職位可讓馬華表達華社關注的課題,並讓馬華對國家經濟發展扮演更積極的角色。

他說,國家經濟理事會共有12名成員,並以首相兼財政部長為首,其他成員包括副首相、第二財長等資深內閣部長和高級政府官員,主要任務是成為政府顧問,協助政府刺激國家經濟成長,以實現高收入國家的目標。

他認為,在推動國家發展及加強大馬在世界經濟的競爭力方面,國內各族人民的角色和貢獻十分重要,並且是相輔相成的。

直屬黨員以國陣旗幟競選 馬華反對

(八打靈再也20日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷披露,馬華不贊成國陣直屬黨員,以國陣旗幟出征下屆全國大選。

但他歡迎民間團體,加入成為國陣聯屬黨員,並坦言,這些國陣直屬或聯屬黨員,將不會有投票權,但一切詳情需進一步討論。

“大部分國陣成員黨,基本上都不贊成國陣直屬黨員,在國陣旗幟下參選,不過一切都有待進一步深入探討和研究。”

詢及若大部分國陣成員黨,都支持讓華團領袖成為大選候選人,馬華立場是否依然堅定時,他回應只要相關華團領袖認為勝算高,就可以去參選。

“華團領袖若認為他們會中選就可以去競選,根本不需要在國陣旗幟下競選,只要他們本身認為有足夠影響力就可以了。反正大選就是由人民來決定,而且也沒有人說阻止華團參政。”

支持不等於參政

至于有一些馬華領袖,認為應讓這些華團領袖在國陣黑區,如武吉免登和士布爹上陣,他則要記者把問題拋回給相關領袖,而不要追問他的意見。

他今日配合“聲明的彩虹金絲帶兒童節圓夢活動2010”,在八打靈再也阿嘉添兒童庇護中心頒發禮品給小孩前,接受媒體訪問時這么指出。

較早前,蔡細歷在出席國陣最高理事會會議后也說,馬華大體上同意國陣推行直屬黨員,支持一些非反對黨人士,直接成為國陣黨員。

“我們發現有很多人支持國陣,要成為國陣支持者,但卻不很樂意成為國陣成員黨黨員。有一些人不是要參政,他們只是支持國陣所做一切。”

另一方面,他也感謝首相拿督斯里納吉信任馬華,並願意破天荒首次在馬華大廈內舉行國陣大會。

詢及首相為何會答應選擇在馬華大廈舉行大會,他則笑著回應說:“那你可要去問首相了。

Chua appointed to economic council

PETALING JAYA: MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek has been appointed to the National Economic Council (NEC).

This would allow the concerns of the Chinese community to be made known to the council, Dr Chua here Saturday.

“To MCA, the appointment is significant as it enables the party to express the concerns of the Chinese community and play an active role in contributing to the nation’s economy.

“The role and contributions of multi-ethnic Malaysians are vital as well as complementary in developing the nation and enhancing its competitiveness in the world economy,” said Dr Chua, thanking Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak for the appointment.

The NEC panel is chaired by Najib, who is also the Finance Minister, and comprises 12 members, including senior Cabinet ministers and officials such as Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah.

Earlier in his speech before presenting gifts to children at the Agathians Shelter here Saturday, Dr Chua said NEC’s primary role was to act as advisor to the Government in order to boost economic growth for Malaysia to achieve high-income nation status.

The council, he said, would meet every Monday, aimed at gathering various opinions from its members on how the Government could maintain the country’s Gross Domestic Product at 6% growth rate in order to achieve the status.

“As such, I also see my appointment as a huge responsibility and I look forward to working together with all members of the council and doing my level best to deliver,” Dr Chua said.

蔡細歷:接納為成員 國陣之友沒投票權

(吉隆坡19日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷指出,國陣領袖在國陣管理委員會會議上,一致接納“國陣之友”(Rakan BN),可是他們不可以擁有投票權。

他指出,在今日的會議上,各成員黨提及接納“國陣之友”的課題。

蔡細歷今日出席國陣管理委員會會議后,接受記者訪問時指出,明日的國陣最高理事會會議,將針對“國陣之友”一事再作結論。

只討論大會課題

“我們都接受國陣之友,只是他們的角色是什么則還不清楚,例如他們是否可以出席區部會議,或只是出席國陣大會。不過,我們一致同意國陣之友沒有投票權,他們只是國陣成員。”

詢及國陣之友是否可派出代表出征大選時,蔡細歷說,今日會議沒有討論此事。

記者也詢問會議是否討論閃電大選及內閣改組的問題時,蔡細歷否認此事。

他指出,由副首相兼國陣署理主席丹斯里慕尤丁主持的1小時會議中,國陣領袖只討論國陣大會的課題。

蔡細歷:協助配合 馬華不干預拉大行政

(怡保19日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷強調,雖然拉曼大學及拉曼學院由馬華創辦,但馬華不會干預它們的行政或課程。

他說,之前鬧得紛紛擾擾的三千萬令吉捐款課題,是由學校理事會決定,不應怪責馬華。馬華會不斷協助及配合這二間學府,但不干預行政。

蔡細歷昨晚在新利口福酒家,為馬青霹靂州團舉辦的“一個馬華醫藥基金”慈善晚宴致開幕詞時,這么說。晚宴共籌獲64萬令吉,由馬青霹靂州團團長拿督馬漢順,移交給蔡細歷。

注重政經文教

他說,馬華是政經文教的都注重的政黨,在教育方面貢獻最多,設立拉曼大學及拉曼學院,大學栽培1萬3500名大學生,學院栽培的學院人數高達15萬名。

他引以為榮的說,拉曼栽培無數會計人才。馬華也照顧華小,華小的董家協領袖大多數是馬華黨員,他們捍衛華小的福利,不像一些人士只會挑撥離間及拉橫幅而已,並沒真正捍衛華小。

他說,在福利方面,馬華黨員站在最前線,日前吉玻大水災,是馬華黨員第一時間協助災黎,成立“一個馬華醫藥基金”。

他說,馬華之前的表現,讓人誤以為馬華是福利機構,其實,馬華是政黨,不是福利機構,現在回歸政治,高調問政,做個真正的政黨,有能力為國人,尤其是華裔,解決大課題。

蔡細歷:沿戶訪問更顯親民‧國陣須改變傳統策略

----->蔡細歷(前左8)與丹州馬華各區會主席或代表合攝。(圖:星洲日報)


(吉蘭丹‧哥打峇魯17日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷認為,國陣是時候要改變傳統的競選方式,比如在一些鄉區地方所進行的沿戶訪問,其實無需過於勞師動眾,只需以小組的方式進行,認真聽取人民的心聲、傳達國陣所要傳達的訊息,此舉更顯親和力及誠意。

“城市那一套競選方式,未必適合用在鄉區地方,國陣必須改變傳統的競選策略。”

他說,往往各級中央領袖及大伙人齊出動助選時,會讓民眾感到缺乏親切感。

此外,他認為,“投國陣是為了確保國家的穩定和發展”這個口號,已經不符合時代及目前的政治局勢。

需要新策略口號

他說,國陣當前需要新的競選或策略口號,同時希望丹州馬華同志能夠提供一些意見,並探討如何在沿戶訪問的短時間內,向民眾傳達國陣所要傳達的訊息。

蔡細歷是今午到來吉蘭丹州的哥打峇魯,與丹州馬華基層領袖聚餐會面後,向媒体這麼表示。

他也贊賞丹州馬華基層領袖在加腊士補選中給予充份配合。

他表示,雖然國陣在本月4日兩場補選中的支持率都提高,不過,他同意首相及副首相的說法,國陣不能因此感到自滿,因為國陣還要走更長遠的路。

加強民眾對一個大馬理解

另一方面,蔡細歷發現,民眾十分支持一個馬來西亞概念,但實際上,許多民眾對一個馬來西亞概念還是不堪瞭解。

他認為,政府有必要通過各种管道,向民眾解釋,以更進一步瞭解一個馬來西亞概念,避免反對黨製造混淆。

BN convention in Wisma MCA a big honour, says Chua

IPOH: MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek is proud that for the first time Wisma MCA will be the venue for the Barisan Nasional convention on Nov 28.

In previous years, the convention was held at the Putra World Trade Centre.

Dr Chua said 200 representatives from the MCA would be attending the convention, which is expected to discuss the recruitment of members directly into the Barisan without having to be a member of a component party.

He also said that candidates for the next general election would be decided after getting the views from all component party leaders, with the final decision left to the Prime Minister.

“We cannot simply place somebody at a constituency just because we like him or her,” he told reporters during the fund-raising dinner for the 1MCA Medical Foundation at the Sun Lee How Fook Restaurant here last night.

On the fundraiser, Dr Chua said Perak collected about RM640,000 to help Malaysians with medical needs.

The fund, he said, would be made available to all Malaysians seeking treatment in private or government hospitals.

A maximum RM20,000 would be given to recipients but those needing more could appeal.

Dr Chua said the 1MCA Medical Foundation would be launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at Mutiara Hotel on Dec 13 and RM500,000 would be disbursed from next year.

他說,在11月28日舉行的國陣大會,首次在馬華舉行,他感到榮幸,將會派出200名代表出席大會。
