Campaigning on the exclusiveness of Sabah is inappropriate: MCA chief

SANDAKAN: Campaigning on the exclusiveness of Sabah is inappropriate, said MCA party president Datuk Seri Chua Soi Lek.

He said that the campaigning method was wrong as Sabah had enjoyed the same amount of respect as any other state since the formation of Malaysia.

“To say that Sabahans have no access to education opportunities or positions in the Government is wrong.

“We have four ministers and five deputy ministers from Sabah in the Cabinet.

“The speaker and deputy speaker are also from Sabah. That shows the amount of respect the federal government has for Sabahans,” said Chua after visiting the Tanah Merah market in the Batu Sapi constituency.

He was accompanied by MCA Youth chief Datuk Wee Ka Siong on the by-election campaign trail in support of Barisan Nasional candidate Datin Linda TsenThau Lin.

“To become a high-income nation by 2020, we need the cooperation of every state, including Sabah,” said Chua, adding that the politics of integration, inclusiveness and development should take focus over promotion of hatred among Malaysians.

“We cannot regard votes as automatic. There is no more stronghold for Barisan, PKR and SAPP and the people are more sophisticated and demanding. So, political parties must know how to respond to this new scenario,” he said.

Chua also lamented the arrogance shown by junior Umno leaders these days.

“They are not fit to be the public’s representative under the 1Malaysiaconcept. What they said about not needing Chinese and Indian voters is uncalled for and unbecoming of a leader,” he said adding that MCA gave the same weightage to everyone’s support.

He added that the Tanah Merah market should be upgraded to reflect the people’s improved standard of living.

------->蔡細歷(右)拜票時,不忘與顏炳壽(中)分享兒女經,指導顏炳壽如何鑑定嬰兒的年齡。(圖:星洲日報)


(吉蘭丹‧話望生30日訊)馬華總會長蔡細歷說,馬華從來都未把人民的支持視為理所當然之事,而目前全國也已經沒有所謂的國陣或民聯堡壘區,每一張選票都必須靠政黨全力爭取。

“每一場補選都很重要,每一場都是激戰,沒有一個選區是屬於國陣或民聯的堡壘安全區,一些國外人士甚至認為我們的政治已經失去穩定度。”

他說,馬華將繼續努力,配合當地領袖,安排更多的馬華中央領袖前來拉票,包括黃燕燕、王賽芝、曹智雄、顏炳壽和何國忠等。

“我們很重視這場補選,我們不會把選民的支持視為理所當然。”

他週六早上到話望生新村拜訪選民後,總結過去3天的拉票工作時說,選民對國陣的反應不錯。

蔡勸村民“吃對藥投對票”

馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷週六在話望生新村拜票時,不忘發揮醫生本色,除了給村民上了一小堂的醫藥課,還不忘提醒村民“藥要吃得對,票要投得對。”

他說,凡年齡上了40歲的人,就要特別注意飲食習慣,不能有喜歡吃就吃的習慣。

“這個年齡層的人必須少油、少鹽及少糖。”

他表示,每個人都要做自己的醫生,好好照顧自己的身體。

最後,他不忘記幫國陣拉票,提醒選民“藥要吃得對,票要投得對。”

Chua: Voters know who can serve them

GUA MUSANG: MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek has voiced confidence that voters here can discern between the party which actually serves them and those that “merely appear during by-elections”.

He cited how the DAP would always provide misleading information to the electorate, thus driving a wedge between the Federal Government and the people.

Pakatan Rakyat, he said, tend to “not do what they say.”

Dr Chua stressed that each by-election was important because no single constituency would remain a political party’s safe seat indefinitely.

“The response from the Chinese voters is satisfactory but for the MCA, the support does not come naturally and we will have to continue to work hard for it.”

“The Galas by-election is highly important to us,” he told reporters after meeting voters in Kampung Baru Gua Musang yesterday morning before ending his three-day visit to the Galas constituency.

Galas: Every by-election is important, says MCA chief

GUA MUSANG: Every by-election is important because there no single constituency will remain a political party's safe seat indefinitely, said MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek on Saturday.

"The response from Chinese voters is satisfactory, but, for the MCA, the support does not come naturally and we will have to continue to work hard for it.

"Galas by-election is highly important to us," he told reporters after meeting voters at Kampung Baru Gua Musang Saturday morning before ending his three-day visit to Galas constituency.

Dr Chua said he was confident that the voters here had the ability to differentiate which party really served them and that which just appeared during a by-election.

He said that the Pakatan Rakyat rarely kept the promises it made during a by-election.

加臘士補選:民聯活動有吃有獎‧蔡細歷斥言行不一

(吉蘭丹‧話望生29日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷砲轟,指民聯的領袖言行出現矛盾,當國陣宣佈撥款時,民聯說那是糖果,自己卻舉辦類似“有吃也有獎”的活動,吸引選民參與。他促請民聯領袖們不要講一套,做一套,在指責國陣派發“補選糖果”的同時,自己也舉辦利民活動。

“而且這種說法,也侮辱了華裔選民,好像華裔選民要有錢才會給票。”

蔡細歷是於週五在話望生新村聚友亭會見馬華婦女組排舞班後,如是表示。出席助選活動者,還包括馬華拉美士區國會議員兼農業及農基工業部副部長蔡智勇。

在同一個地點的草場上,民聯則正舉辦一場大型的“領袖與人民親善交流”活動,活動上有幸運抽獎、有獎遊戲、填色比賽,當然也少不了早餐招待。

小販中心無廁所

蔡細歷說,民聯活動的所有出席者都會得到獎品,而出席週五早活動的馬華婦女們,甚麼也沒有拿到。

“她們不但沒有東西拿,還要為我準備食物。”

談及加臘士補選的華裔選票行情時,他希望選民把這幾天來的熱情,化為國陣的選票。

他說,他週四晚會見了加臘士補選國陣競選主任東姑拉沙里,後者也認為這次的補選,各民族的反應比308全國大選更好。

“選民比較熱烈,人民也看得到吉蘭丹在回教黨執政20年後沒有甚麼表現,這種情況不可以再繼續下去。”

他說,他全國各地走透透,發現只有話望生的小販中心是沒有廁所的。

“回教黨州政府連基本設施也不能為人民準備;因此,我希望選民可以把選票投給國陣候選人。”

會瞭解不諳華文教師派華小課題

蔡細歷說,他會去瞭解教總在報章上所指明年有千名不諳華文的國語教師被派到華小的課題。

“我還沒看到這個報導,不過我會去深一層瞭解。現在,我並不清楚教總到底從何獲取這樣的數據,也不清楚這項課題。”

教總主席王超群週四指出,近期一些華小接到教育部的口頭通知,或是在教育局的會議上被告知,明年將有數以千名馬來教師及不諳華文的教師會派來華小執教國文,包括低年級的國文;同時,有關華小必須接受這些國文科教師。

駕大車住大屋仍申請組屋
蔡促知情者投訴

針對副首相慕尤丁於提名前在加臘士州議席推介的“人民組屋計劃”,馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷強調,如果民眾發現有“駕大車、住大屋”的人提出申請,可馬上向他投訴。

蔡細歷是在話望生華人新村的金記酒家裡與當地華裔選民交流時,作出這項保證。

民聯領袖這幾天一再披露,申請“人民組屋”的表格出現兩种樣版,引起混淆,甚至有人說只有馬華黨員才能提出申請。

不過,蔡細歷談論這個課題時卻強調,中央政府準備在話望生市內興建1500個廉價組屋單位,其中一半是保留給華裔選民的,這已證明馬華是公正的處理這個課題。

“如果你們發現那些駕大車、住大屋的人也來申請,你就向我投訴。如果我們沒有幫你處理這件事,你可以罵我。”

他強調,馬華將確保那些符合條件的選民,都能順利提出申請。

拜票大談健康經 蔡細歷 邀婦女爬山跑步

(話望生29日訊)蔡細歷強調自己健康狀況很好,話望生婦女可以挑戰他爬山、跑步。

馬華總會長的拿督斯里蔡細歷今早到話望生拜票,今次似乎是衝著當地婦女選票而來,所談及內容都是針對女權等,甚至還大談健康經,勉勵當地女性選民要照顧自己的健康。

蔡氏也是衛生部前部長。他在交流過程中一連拋出多個數據,包括國內肥胖人士所攝取營養來源等,甚至還逗樂當地婦女,讚她們的身材標準,沒有太過肥胖。

“你們都保持得很好,我看不到當中有肥胖的人,我也是每天都有準時做運動,如果你們要挑戰我爬山、跑步,你們也未必贏我。”

對補選有信心

他今早到該處和當地的馬華婦女組排舞班交流時,宣布撥出5000令吉予她們製作制服,隨后到話望生佛教會時再另外撥出1萬令吉予佛教會青年團充當活動基金。

此外,他也和兒子蔡智勇坐下品嚐婦女組成員準備的早餐,邊吃邊談笑風生,心情不錯。

在召開新聞發布會時,排舞班成員圍繞在他周圍,他這時笑稱話望生有很多婦女都在做他的后盾。

另一方面,蔡細歷再次否認馬華是來話望生當財神爺,他說民聯也有派甜頭給人民,如果民聯執意以這課題來攻擊國陣,顯然他們是在講一套做一套。

他還說,加臘士選區內的人民都欣見國陣的發展宏遠,對今次補選成績有一定的信心。

Chua: Daily woes will influence votes

GUA MUSANG: The people in Galas take a deep interest in local and national issues, MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek said.

He said that folks here would decide their votes based on how they evaluated local issues, from daily problems such as how fast land titles were renewed to how they felt about national development. He also said that national development would also benefit the people including those in Pakatan-led state. He assured Galas voters that Barisan Nasio nal would ensure no states were left behind in the country’s development.

“The Federal Government has identified a piece of land to build low-cost houses here, the first such housing scheme in Kelantan. This is proof of Barisan’s commitment,” he told reporters after meeting several Chinese non-governmental organisations here yesterday.

On the upgrading of SJK(C) Pulai with eight more classrooms, he said Deputy Education Minister Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong had set up a committee to calculate the cost.

Dr Chua said he was confident of the Chinese support for Barisan.Later, Dr Chua, Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen, Deputy Agriculture and Agro-based Industries Minister Chua Tee Yong as well as Barisan candidate Abdul Aziz Yusof visited a Thai Buddhist temple – Wat Gua Musang Wat Uthis Sak Thammo Wararam – in Kampung Chegar Bongor.

Yesterday, Bandar MCA branch chairman Tan Guan Cheng handed over 140 member application forms to Dr Chua and pledged the branch’s undivided support for the Barisan.

Eighty of the 140 applicants were voters in the Galas constituency.

Dr Chua said there were more restrictions living in an Islamic state, apart from not being allowed to consume non-halal food.

“We (MCA) have translated the PAS Constitution, and we want the Chinese to look at it. They do not understand the implications,” he said here last night.

Dr Chua said the outcome of the Galas by-election would be an indication of the Chinese community’s support for the Barisan; and also support for the various transformation plans and changes under Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s leadership.

“It will indicate the community’s support for the current MCA leadership,” he added.

蔡总高调捍卫华社权益「做不到就辞职」

----->蔡智勇(左)随父亲蔡细历(右)去拜票时,看见一批新村村民玩桌球,也「按捺不住」上桌与村民切磋球艺。蔡细历微笑看着爱子开球,而在旁的马华丹州联委会主席黄燕燕(右2)也一起打气。

(话望生28日讯)马华总会长拿督斯里蔡细历强调,马华致力捍卫华社权益,若无法履行这项承诺,他将辞去马华总会长职。

蔡细历指出,本身已经曾经通过行动,证实本身是一名「讲得到,便做得到」的领袖。

他说:「若我无法实现这项承诺,我就会辞职,反正我也已经辞职了很多次。」

他今日访问加腊士会见当地华裔居民时致词时说,首相拿督斯里纳吉自上台以后,国阵及巫统已经改变。

他说,只是这项改变并不显著,因为国阵政府需要顾及马来民众感受,政府必需平衡各民族的意愿,国家才会稳定。

补选背后意义重大

他呼吁选民必须做出明智的抉择,以便支持国阵候选人。

蔡细历较后向记者指出,虽然这场补选决定不了大局,但却受到高度重视,因这场补选将让公众了解,华裔选民是否支持纳吉推行的各项改革方案,包括「一个马来西亚」理念、 「经济转型计划」等。

蔡细历指出,这场补选也将看出,在他当选马华总会长后提出的「高调论政」,是否得到华社的支持。

他强调,对于纳吉的领导能力及才华具有信心,并深信首相能带动国家的转型。

深信华裔选票回流

他较后向记者说,根据马华在过去2天来在加腊士选区跑动,深信华裔对国阵的支持已回流。

他说,发现当地许多华裔对回教党州政府的表现开始产生不满,因在过去20年来,没见到加腊士出现任何显著的发展。

他表示,以话望生市区的小贩中心为例,当地连一个厕所都找不到。

蔡细历炮轰丹州政府,无论在处理任何事务上都是以宗教优先,使州内的发展受到忽略。

此外,蔡细历也炮轰民联领袖,喜欢引用少数巫统党员在代表大会上的极端言论来攻击国阵,他说,事实上这些巫统党员并不代表国阵领袖的立场。

另外,询及有巫统领袖要求马华与民政党让出落败的议席,蔡细历说,在308大选期间并非只是华社吹反风,马来社会也一样,否则国阵也不会丢失吉打州政权。无论如何,他表示不愿在此课题上,争论谁才是令国阵惨败的祸首,因这种争论是对国阵不利的。

BN has proven development record, Chua tells voters

SANDAKAN: Barisan Nasional is a tested coalition with a proven development record, said MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek to voters in Batu Sapi.

“They (Opposition) will play up issues but I believe that the voters will not be affected by them.

“Like all Malaysians, voters in Batu Sapi also want development. We have a proven track record,” said Dr Chua, who were among the top Barisan leaders at the Batu Sapi nomination centre yesterday to support Barisan’s candidate Datin Linda Tsen Thau Lin.

He added that the MCA with its 1,200 members in the Sandakan area had pledged their full support for the Barisan candidate irrespective of the party she represented.

“I have met with (Sabah MCA chief) Datuk Edward Khoo and all our members.

“They have given the assurance they will work for the Barisan candidate,” he said, adding that it was in the spirit of Barisan cooperation.

On the Galas by-election, he said the mood of the Chinese voters there was good and he hoped the community would not be hoodwinked by the promises of land.

“Such promises have been made repeatedly for the past 20 years,” he said.

蔡細歷:國人掌握能力差‧英文應列須及格科目

----->蔡細歷:目前歷史課本的內容並沒有真正反映各民族在建國上所扮演的角色。(圖:光明日報


(吉隆坡25日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷認為,英文更應該被列為馬來西亞教育文憑考試(SPM)的必須及格科目,他擔心國人對英文的掌握能力太差,可能連教師的英文也不及格,因此是說易行難。

他不諱言,如果現在便把英文列為教育文憑考試的必須及格科目,恐怕除了很多學生之外,甚至連教師也可能不及格。

他是週一為一本新書主持推介後,詢及有人認為英文比歷史更應該被列為教育文憑考試的必須及格科目時,如此回應。

他表示,歷史對馬來西亞人非常重要,因此馬華贊同政府把歷史科列為教育文憑考試的必須及格科目。

他說,作為馬來西亞人都應該有一定瞭解的大馬歷史,若要列為教育文憑考試的必須及格科目,就得確保歷史課本真正反映各民族所扮演的角色。

指歷史課本有弱點

他指出,大馬目前的歷史課本有些弱點,一些內容並沒有真正反映各民族在建國上所扮演的角色。

他說,歷史科的重點不應該是強調死背,死背日期、死背數字,而是如何把歷史變得更有互動性,同時強調事件發生的經過及影響。

他強調,歷史課本必須非常清楚的說明各民族在多個歷史大事件,如爭取國家獨立及和共產黨對抗上所扮演的角色。

此外,他說,歷史課本還得說明大馬為何會發生513事件,而國家在這事件上所經歷的種種危機、為何馬來西亞要獨立,以及印尼為何當時對抗馬來西亞的獨立等。

有關首相兼巫統主席拿督斯里納吉日前在巫統大會上發表的巫統7項政治轉型要素,蔡細歷說,其中有6項是和馬華新領導層制定的計劃是大同小異。

他指出,除了沒有討論黨內要零問題之外,馬華還提出親民、把黨的利益放在個人的利益之上、注重團隊精神、使用新媒體及與新選民接觸等的目標上。

168人聯名投訴‧蔡細歷親自調解‧發臭味廠允暫停生產

------>蔡細歷(左3)對話會上不斷促請居民必須保持冷靜;左2:江明光。(圖:星洲日報)


(柔佛‧峇株巴轄24日訊)峇株巴轄丹絨拉務路七支一家資源回收及塑料再循環工廠,在生產過程中發出難聞臭味,引起當地168名華巫裔居民聯名作出投訴,馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷親自與廠方對話,廠方答應即日起暫停生產以平息民怨。

該工廠租用現有廠址進行資源回收及塑料再生產工作,至今約有4個月,因在生產過程中排放出難聞臭味,引起附近168名居民不滿及聯名作出投訴。

雖然已被當局限令停止生產,但該工廠卻不理會禁令,繼續如常運作。

眾居民在忍無可忍的情況下,有向馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷求助,蔡細歷昨午連同多位馬華市議員及黨要,前往該工廠與廠方對話。

無營業執照濾水池不足

蔡細歷與廠方負責人對話後,也與當地居民對話。他在對話會上不斷呼吁居民要保持冷靜,不要太激動及“話多多”,因為如此一來只會引起更多問題。

他表示,目前廠方已答應停止一切生產運作,但將如常進行那些未涉及生產過程的資源分類工作。

“該工廠並未持有市議會發出的合法營業執照,因此根本不能繼續運作。此外,該工廠目前只設有一個過濾廢氣的水池,並不符合規格,理應擁有至少3個過濾水池,才有助於將污染問題降至最低點。”

‘History must be balanced’

----->Having a bite: Chua trying “ulam” after the launching of the “Ulam – Salad Herbs of Malaysia” book in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.


KUALA LUMPUR: The history of Malaysia presented to students must be balanced and document sufficiently the contributions made by all the races, said MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.

He added that the party supported the move by the Education Ministry to make History a compulsory subject for SPM.

Commenting on the content of current History textbooks, Dr Chua said that some parts did not really reflect the contributions of all races.

Dr Chua added that the subject should be more interactive and not only be about memorising dates and personalities.

“It should be more about events and the significant contributions by all the races that first made Malaya and later Malaysia,” he told a press conference after launching Ulam - Salad Herbs of Malaysia book here yesterday.

To a question whether English should be a compulsory pass subject for SPM, Dr Chua said he believed that such a move was necessary.

However, he said it was not easy to implement this at the moment.

“I am afraid many people will fail, including school teachers, because many have a poor command of English,” he said.

Dr Chua suggested that Malaysians master three languages - Bahasa Malaysia, English and Mandarin.

In a separate statement, MCA Publicity Bureau deputy chairman Loh Seng Kok said the syllabus for History should not be politically aligned.

“The teaching of History can influence the attitude of students towards their peers who are of a different race and religion and more importantly, towards nation-building.

“As it is about time to conduct the five-year annual review of the subject, there should be a multiracial panel sitting on the curriculum review committee to oversee the writing of the History syllabus Year One to Upper Six,” Loh said.

He said the MCA had received feedback from parents that History textbooks tend to predominantly favour a particular race and religious civilisation.

蔡細歷:歷史應記載事件由來 英文科應列須及格

(吉隆坡25日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷說,馬華贊同教育部將歷史科列為大馬教育文憑考試(SPM)必須及格的科目,但也有必要將英文科列為必須及格的科目。

他說,可是,要將英文科列為必須及格的科目,不易實行,也具爭議性,因事實上,有許多人的英文科目不及格,無法掌握英文,連一些老師可能也不及格。

“馬來人和華人都重視本身母語,忽略了其他語言,需知英文越來越重要。”

最好能掌握三語

蔡細歷今日出席麥氏集團推介“介紹野生菜(Ulam)”新書禮后,對媒體發表談話;出席者為麥國集團執行主席拿督麥國和集團總執行長麥松滿。

他說,雖然英文是世界語言,但中文隨著中國崛起超越美國成為世界強國,也具有成為世界經濟語言的潛質。

“馬來西亞人最好能學懂3種語言,即英文、中文和馬來文,學習語文與種族無關,但與大環境趨勢有關。”

他說,歷史課本應清楚說明,各族對國家發展作出的貢獻,在一些歷史事件如印尼對抗事件、513事件、馬共鬥爭等。

他說,課本內容不應只闡述和強調歷史事件的時間,更要讓學生了解,為甚么會發生有關歷史事件,如為何發生513事件或印尼對抗事件。

詢及是否需修改或增加歷史課本內容時,他未作出正面回應,但他再三強調,有關課程綱要必須反映各族所扮演的角色。

蔡細歷:勿被土權困擾‧6%經濟成長更重要

(柔佛‧新山24日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷表示認同首相拿督斯里納吉所說的,即大家別再被土權問題所困擾,眼前最重要的是如何確保國家經濟繼續獲得成長。

他以經濟蛋糕作為比喻說,屆時,國家的經濟蛋糕就會變大,每個族群所分得的蛋糕分量也會增加。

工人薪金少過720

“到時,土著股權未必要30%,有20%已經很多了。”他指出,若大馬每年持續取得6%的經濟成長率,大馬就可成為高收入國家。

“不要讓甚麼30或40%來困擾我們,最重要是確保每年6%的國家經濟成長率,擴大經濟蛋糕面積,來實現成為高收入國的目標。”

他強調,國家若要達到高收入國目標,必須提昇私人領域的投資百分比,從現今的2%增加至12%。

此外,政府也必須提高行政效率,增加利商環境,讓政策更加透明化等,以增加投資者的信心。

另一方面,他提到,大馬在過去10年裡,國民的薪金成長率只有2.6%。這使得國內工人每月薪金少過720令吉,少過貧窮線。

他說,政府若制定最低薪金制,並對各族實施公平政策,錄取各族優秀生進入本地大專就讀,便可解決人才外流問題。

蔡細歷是於上週六晚上在“全國華人文化節基金聯歡晚宴”上,如是表示。

蔡細歷:女公僕有“小約瑟芬” 刁難商人牽怒政府

(新山24日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷抨擊公共行政系統不只出現“小拿破侖”,還有“小約瑟芬”,存心刁難商人,以致大家對政府心生怨氣!

約瑟芬是拿破侖的第一任妻子,也是法人蘭西第一帝國的皇后,蔡細歷因此順理成章把愛存心刁難的女公務員,喻為小約瑟芬,以此揭露不只有男性公務員愛“擺款”,許多女性高級公務員,也一樣讓商家頭痛,有損政府形象。

嚇跑投資者

為此,他促請公務員改變態度與效率,否則只是換湯不換藥,更會趕跑投資者。

“政府需要更多私人投資推動經濟,因此政策要透明化,還需公平對待各族,減少繁文縟節及官僚作風等,確保私人界對政府有信心,而政府推出的各項計劃再好,必須有效實行,否則計劃終究只是計劃。”

蔡細歷昨晚出席新山中華公會88週年慶、文物館成立一週年暨第27屆全國華人文化節基金聯歡晚宴時,這么指出。

另外,他認為,國家轉型計劃要成功,政府應採取大開放政策,即開放12個關鍵經濟領域,包括石油、天然氣、通訊等,尤其要鼓勵“華巫聯營”。

此外,蔡細歷說,首相同意大馬是時候落實最低薪金制,因為國家出現人才外流現象,並吸引大批“沒有料”的外勞(意即低教育程度或沒有技術) ,對國家長遠不利。

他引述世界銀行調查,過去10年,大馬工人薪金成長率只有2.6%,有者每月收入在720令吉以下(低過貧窮線)。

他認為,鄰國工人薪金逐步提升,相對工作生產力、技術和工藝也提高,大馬有必要仿傚,而不是單靠低薪金作為競爭條件。

他指出,馬華提出逐步減少土著股權30%課題,並不是剝奪土著權益,而是確保經濟轉型和改革成功,並以國家利益為出發點。

Chua: Bumiputra quota issue raised to ensure plan’s success

JOHOR BARU: MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek says he has no other agenda in raising the 30% bumiputra quota issue other than ensuring that the Government’s economic transformation plan succeeded.

“Time is not on our side. We only have 10 years. Let’s not be fixated on this 30%, as the most important thing now is to rapidly grow the economy so that there will be a bigger size of cake for everyone,” he said in responding to a rebuke from Umno permanent chairman Datuk Badruddin Amiruldin, who advised him to work as a team player in the Barisan Nasional and to stop hurting the Malays.

Dr Chua pointed out that under the Ninth Malaysia Plan, domestic and private investments only grew by 2%.

“Under the 10th Malaysia plan, we have to grow by at least six-fold to 12%, which amounts to RM150bil annually,” he told reporters after attending the 88th anniversary of the Johor Baru Tiong Hua Federation dinner here yesterday. On Thursday, Dr Chua had said that the implementation of the social contract could be discussed, but that it should be done behind closed doors.

He suggested that measures be taken to improve the Government delivery system, reduce red tape and create more transparent policies.

“There should not be any flip flop in our policies and there should be no little Napoleons,” he said, adding that it was also important to establish a business-friendly environment.

Dr Chua explained that it was not a question of the Chinese pitted against the Malays but the whole country competing against the world to attract foreign investments.

“If there is good growth every year, then whatever equity the Chinese or Malays get will be meaningful as the cake will be bigger,” he said.

MCA publicity bureau deputy chairman and central committee member Loh Seng Kok concurred with Dr Chua, saying that the party’s suggestion was never aimed along racial lines but purely with the country’s and people’s interest in mind.

巫統大會:蔡細歷:不只是馬華‧308大選巫統也慘敗

(雪蘭莪‧八打靈再也22日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷說,308大選不是只有馬華面對慘敗,巫統也同樣慘敗,否則國陣不會輸掉在馬來人佔大多數的吉打州政權。

議席分配非幾個人說了算他對星洲日報說,議席分配不是由巫統幾個中央代表說了就算,而是由國陣代表大會來決定;他們不是首相,代表們是為了明年的黨選年要提高自己的身份,為了逞英雄而講爽。

他說,這幾個中央代表的言論並不代表巫統,因此馬華不會對此做出反擊。

“我也絕不會讓幾個中央代表的言論影響馬華和國陣的合作關係。”

未質疑30%土著股權
“議長沒權力加油加醬”

你叫我不要“kacau”,我叫你不要“講太多,不要加油加醬”!

繼巫統代表大會議長拿督峇達魯丁今日在巫統代表大會上以福建話叫蔡細歷不要“kacau”30%土著股權後,蔡細歷也以“議長沒有權力加油加醬”做出反擊。

蔡細歷指身為巫統代表大會議長的峇達魯丁只是主持代表大會,沒有權力針對中央代表的言論繼續加油加醬。

蔡細歷重申,他並非質疑30%的土著股權,而是為了確保國家經濟轉型成功,提昇大馬的競爭條件吸引外資。

他說,身為華基政黨的總會長,他當然要說出這番話,但是這番言論不是只為了華人而說,是為了顧及整個國家的利益。

經濟轉型須私人界支持

他指出,國家經濟轉型的成功必須獲得私人界支持,而要獲得私人界支持,就要視乎私人界對國家的政策有信心與否。

“因此我們要求經濟開放,真正的華巫聯營也可以,這並沒有剝奪土著的股權。”

他強調,他瞭解有關課題對馬來同胞的敏感性,但這項要求並非要和馬來同胞競爭,而是要擴展經濟蛋糕,讓整個國家受惠。

蔡細歷曾在今年的大馬華人經濟大會上吁請政府逐步開放30%土著股權。

巫統大會‧蔡細歷:敏感課題‧“社會契約”應低調討論

----->國陣各成員黨領出席第六十一屆巫統大會,以示對巫統的支持。前排右起為馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷、國大黨主席拿督斯里三美威魯、砂州土保黨主席丹斯里泰益瑪目、砂人聯黨主席丹斯里陳康南、民政黨主席丹斯里許子根、人民進步黨主席拿督卡維斯及沙巴自民黨主席拿督劉偉強。(圖:星洲日報)


(吉隆坡21日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷認為,人民可以討論“社會契約”這類敏感的問題,但不一定要高調討論,可以通過閉門會議低調地討論。

“雖然納吉談到聯邦憲法153條文、馬來人特權和社會契約時認為,這已經是事實,無需再討論,但是我認為還是可以討論的,但是這項課題敏感,低調討論就好。”

蔡細歷今日出席巫統代表大會開幕式後受詢時說,有些課題不能說完全不允許討論,可以通過閉門的方式,即使是憲法所闡明的特權也可以討論,包括年輕人也有這樣的觀點,以確保推行時採取公平的方式,顧及全民的利益。

他說,任何的國家計劃最基本的要點是必須確保各族群的和諧,只有穩定的社會,國家才能發展。

“國陣應該關心全民的利益,納吉的提醒是適合時宜。”

Chua: Social contract should be discussed in private

THE implementation of the social contract can be discussed, but it should be done behind closed doors, said MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.

Dr Chua said the party accepted that the social contract was entrenched in the Federal Consti-tution, but said the implementation of it could be “modified and redefined” to serve the interest of all races.

“We feel that there should be room for discussion, and the discussion has to take into consideration the sensitivities of all races.

“It should not be done in the open, but behind closed doors,” he said.

Dr Chua was commenting on the policy speech delivered by Umno president and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at 61st Umno General Assembly here yesterday.

He also welcomed Najib’s reminder to members that social stability was the basis to spur national development.

MCA secretary-general and Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha said the speech presented a new direction for Umno members to take the party and the nation forward.

“The Prime Minister reminded Umno members on globalisation, and all citizens regardless of races to work together to be competitive on the world stage,” he said.

蔡細歷:大選比黨選重要 巫統代表須謹言

(怡保20日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷認為,大選比黨選重要,他勸請巫青、女巫青和婦女組在代表大會上,不要為了提升自己在黨內的形象和鞏固黨內的地位,而發表破壞種族和諧言論。

他說,極端分子只是占少數,並不是大多數。我國是多元種族國家,各國陣成員黨,包括馬華都應採取包容各族為大原則,容納各種族以全民為主。

採取包容各族原則

他也提醒巫統中央代表,不要提出極端的言論,以免使其他種族受到打擊。

他認為,如果每個國陣成員黨能夠採取包容各族為大原則,相信將可以得到人民繼續的支持。

蔡細歷今午前往巡視怡保彩虹城食物中心后,在記者會上,發表這項談話。

蔡細歷宣布,他會要求房屋及地方政府部撥出5萬令吉,作為提升和美化該食物中心用途。

他指出,小販要求為食物中心重新髹漆,若允許也提升道路水平,不過,他披露,由于該中心地段屬于私人地,因此如果要落實長遠計劃,必須與地主商討和取得同意方可。

近打流動小販公會主席陳禧荃和霹靂販商公會主席黃新德今天也分別提呈備忘錄給馬華總會長蔡細歷。

出席者包括怡保彩虹城食物中心委員會主席陳國泰,霹州行政議員拿督馬漢順、馬華霹州聯委會秘書拿督陳進明、馬華怡保東區區會主席拿督湯華昌、婦女組主席王少玉、務邊區會主席曾振銓、兵如港協調員邱文傳,以及馬華霹州領袖拿督鄭光祖和拿督趙偉權等。

蔡細歷:世界華人經濟論壇 馬華力招更多參與者

(沙登18日訊)隨著第二屆世界華人經濟論壇即將在下個月舉行,馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷披露,憑著馬華滲透各階層的聯絡網,可為論壇吸引更多商家和有興趣人士參與,馬華有意在下一屆論壇成為主辦單位之一。

他希望馬華除了政治課題外,必須概括華人經濟領域,為此,憑著馬華黨員宣傳,可吸引更多有意參加論壇者,大家聚集一起互換意見,為華人經濟領域貢獻。

蔡細歷也是該論壇顧問,他是出席第2屆華人經濟論壇記者會時指出,可透過華人有興趣的課題吸引更多人參與,使論壇更國際化,並有望在明年主辦收費性質的國際論壇。

他指出,預料中國在未來10年至15年內,取代美國成為世界經濟大國,大馬和中國也有深厚建交關係。

“從吉隆坡國際機場出發,並在5小時內飛抵的所有國家中,其人口佔20億人,試想飛行5小時馬上就可以和20億接軌,就可以發掘更多貿易商機。”

他冀望下一屆華人經濟論壇更具國際規模,吸引不同種族的企業家參與,讓我國人均收入從8000美元(約2萬1000令吉)提升至1萬5000美元(約4萬5000令吉)的宏願可達致。

出席論壇嘉賓包括論壇贊助人丹斯里李金友、亞洲策略及研究機構總執行長拿督楊元慶及聯合主席拿督葉紹全。

(吉隆坡18日訊)三父子為善不落人後,齊來建設同心樂齡關懷中心,免費照顧無依無靠的老人。

這所位於沙叻秀新村的樂齡關懷中心可容納超過40人,一切費用全免。

“這塊土地是我兩個兒子張國君與張國民共同捐贈,中心內還有一輛救護車。凡在醫院無法走動的老人家,若證實沒有家人,也可以聯絡他們,電話是012-2081530。”

這輛全新的救護車也是由張來的兩名兒子捐贈,他們週一邀請馬總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷見證移交儀式。

修直屬成員黨制存疑點 蔡細歷:馬華將討論

(吉隆坡18日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷醫生說,他對國陣修改直屬成員黨制時,相關背景的成員黨不能參與投票一事,感到疑惑。

他舉例,若有華基團體欲加入國陣,馬華就不能與另12個國陣成員黨,一同參與是否讓華基團體加入的投票會議。

“即使是印裔團體欲加入國陣,印度國大黨同樣無權參與國陣成員黨的投票決策會議。”

蔡細歷今日為沙叻秀新村同心樂齡關懷中心,主持啟用儀式后,受詢及國陣將修改直屬成員黨一事時,如此回應。

他說,為何擁有相關背景的成員黨,不能參與投票?馬華將就此事開會討論。

他認為開放召收直屬黨員,可讓更多人加入,支持國陣。

蔡氏支持首相兼財長拿督斯里納吉,不發花紅給公務員,以免引起不滿。

他說,我國經濟還處于赤字,公務員不該享有花紅,以免加重負擔,反之應協助國家降低赤字。

A great StART in the arts for children

-------->Special guests: Dr Chua giving a word of encouragement to StART Society students. With him is Star Publications Bhd executive director and group chief editor Datuk Seri Wong Chun Wai (right).


SIXTEEN-year-old Mok Mei Ye beamed proudly as she handed a piece of artwork to MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.

“I worked on it last night with the help of my friend Evon Tseng,” said Mok, who is from the Ti-Ratana Welfare Society.

Mok said that when she found out the day before that she had to produce a souvenir for Dr Chua who was visiting the home, she started painting at about 9pm and burned the midnight oil to finish the painting.

Mok and Tseng, 15, were some of the children from various children’s homes who take up lessons in music, arts, dance and drama at the StART Society.

Foetus International chairman and Association of Accredited Advertising Agents Malaysia (4As) president Datuk Vincent Lee started the centre in Petaling Jaya more than a year ago to nurture underprivileged children through music, art and drama.

“Many homes give children the basic educational needs and the children are not taught to explore their creative talents,” said Lee.

He said that learning how to paint, sing, dance, act and play music helped to give the children, many of whom came from troubled or disadvantaged backgrounds, a confidence boost.

According to StART programme director Joshua Lee, the centre has three full-time employees and 12 part-time teachers.

He said that while the children have fun attending classes, the commitment by the people from the homes also played an important role.

“Children will be children and many of them have a very short attention span. It is up to their minders to bring them to the classes and give them that extra push to keep going,” he said

Lee added that they hoped to open up more centres in other states.

“One of our biggest hurdles is funding. For now, Foetus International is fully funding it and we also have other well-wishers contributing in cash and kind,” he said.

Dr Chua took a tour of the premises which has separate studios for art, keyboards, drums, dance and drama classes.

“By nurturing the children’s artistic talents and letting them learn new skills, the centre provides the children with a good foundation towards a better life,” said Dr Chua.

The StART students also performed a dance, a drama and a song for their special guest.

Dr Chua said that he would undertake a mission to raise RM200,000 for the centre.

蔡細歷:形成“他族在朝,華人在野”‧支持反對黨不利民族

(柔佛‧峇株巴轄17日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷認為,若華人一味支持反對黨,而巫、印裔卻支持國陣,將會導致“他族在朝,華人在野”的局面,對整個民族非常不利。

蔡細歷昨午主持峇株巴轄蘇雅花園綜合雨蓋球場奠基禮上說,若國陣只在巫、印裔支持下將成立州政府及中央政府,華人則成為反對黨的主要勢力;這最終形成“他族在朝”的局面,華人則只能在執政主流外吵吵鬧鬧。

“國陣政府不是十全十美,我們也有貪污濫權等缺點;如果一名政治人物說他是十全十美,只是因為他懂得騙人,而且比較有說服力。”

他指出,大馬華裔同胞只有25%,華裔肯定無法單獨執政,所以華裔必須接受這是一個多元種族的國家。

他也希望華人不要太天真,若民聯執政,回教黨就是老大,而且也會以回教教義及價值觀來執政。

“到時,華社是否可以接受呢?”

2011年財政預算案迴響‧蔡細歷:應公開摩天樓詳情

----->蔡細歷於紀念冊上簽名。左:馬華甲州婦女組主席江雪霞、野新區會主席許金漢,右:甲馬華聯委會主席顏天祿、馮鎮安。(圖:光明日報)


(馬六甲16日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷認為,政府應該公開興建100層摩天樓工程詳情,以便這座摩天樓不會成為一個大白象計劃。

蔡細歷週六下午出席馬六甲馬華“選戰幹訊營”時在記者會上說,政府應該公開更詳細的內容,讓各界更加瞭解這座耗資50億令吉的摩天樓大計。

此外,他在提及最低工資時認為,最低工資應以區域及行業領域定下最低工資標准。

“巴生谷一帶的最低工資,應該與玻璃市、吉打、吉蘭丹或登嘉樓有別。”

他指出,具有發展潛能的領域如園坵業、製造業及服務業,應該實行最低工資。

“我們不同意最低工資的做法將導致加重資方的負擔,導致大馬無法競爭的說法。”

蔡細歷舉例,在新加坡、香港、台灣的工資,比大馬更高出多倍,但是,這些國家和地方同樣能夠保持競爭力。

“競爭力可從提高技能、科技及生產力,我們不能一方面要進步,一方面卻停留在低工資、低生產力、低科技的腳步。”

他說,目前是時侯實行最低工資的時機。

砂選舉全國大選 蔡細歷:不可能同步

(峇株巴轄16日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷認為,剛公佈的財政預算案並非大選前的預算案,砂拉越州選舉也不可能與全國大選同步舉行!

他認為,剛公佈的財政預算案,並非首相拿督斯里納吉為了第13屆大選而準備的預算案。

至于明年6月前必須進行州選的的砂拉越,是否會與全國大選同步舉行,他認為可能性不大,因為全國大選需要充足的時間做好準備。

蔡細歷也是馬華峇株巴轄區會主席,他今午為蘇雅花園綜合有蓋球場主持奠基儀式后,對記者這么指出。

他說,在這次的預算案中,服務稅從原有的5%略增至6%,帶來的負面影響並不大。

他強調,無論任何公司收購及管理大道公司,都須履行社會責任,提供優質服務,並確保有關大道的收費不會隨意漲價。

Chua: A Budget designed to sustain economic growth

MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek has described the Budget as a good one that will sustain economic growth for many years to come.

He, however, noted the impact of a slowdown among Malaysia’s major trading partners, including the United States, the European Union and Japan.

“This will affect us badly if they are actually facing a recession,” he said after attending the SJK(C) Pui Teh Teachers Day celebration here yesterday.

Dr Chua, in welcoming the setting up of the Wage Council to implement a minimum wage, said it was timely as a depressed wage system would not augur well for the country’s competitiveness.

Nevertheless, it was disappointing that issues on foreign workers were not addressed, he said.

Dr Chua said the goods and services tax (GST) ought to be implemented in order to widen the revenue base.

He said there was also the need to rationalise subsidies, particularly for oil, gas and electricity.

On Chinese education, Dr Chua said the RM250mil allocation in development expenditure for religious, Chinese, Tamil, mission and government-assisted schools was less than expected.

“We (MCA) are disappointed as we were thinking of about RM150mil a year (for Chinese schools alone).”

Regarding the 100-storey 1Merdeka building, Dr Chua said details were yet to be made available.

“Hopefully, it will not become a white elephant,’’ he added.

蔡細歷:沒太大不同‧預算案撙節減赤字

(吉隆坡15日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷認為,明年度財政預算案跟今年的預算案沒有太大分別,而撙節措施必須落實的;因為只有這樣,才能減低預算案的赤字。

他說,目前為止,還沒有看到任何轉型計劃,以擴大國家經濟收入來源,而單靠有限的石油及天然氣非長遠之計。

“我不敢說減少開銷是一件好事,但是必須要做的事,才能減低赤字。”

開放領域仍不足夠

他是針對2011年財政預算案發表看法時說,財政預算案是一年的經濟計劃,而要達到高收入目標,經濟體系必須要有不同的作風。因此,大馬必須推行更開放的經濟政策,而首相拿督斯里納吉所宣佈的開放領域仍不足夠。

他指出,除了首相宣佈的12個國家關鍵成效領域,也應逐步開放其它領域。

“整個國家發展是依靠私人界來帶動,若要讓大家對政府有信心,政府的政策必須要透明化及民主,投資者才有信心。”

他表示,要達到6%經濟成長率,大馬每年必須要有至少1千億令吉的投資額,其中至少60%是來自私人界。

認同調整津貼措施

他也認同政府調整津貼措施,並認為越來越多人瞭解與接受重整津貼,因為國家收入未增加,國家開銷又提高的情況下,國家經濟是處於非常不利的局面。

提到成立的國家最低薪金制理事會,蔡細歷說,馬華一向爭取制定最低薪金制,尤其服務業、工業及需要技術的領域,因此,這項宣佈是適時的,並希望能逐步在更多傾城制定最低薪金制。

(八打靈再也15日訊)馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷醫生承諾,為慈善藝術學習中心Start Society籌款20萬令吉,補助需要幫助的兒童的藝術學習課程經費。

他週四在中心創辦人兼大馬廣告代理協會主席拿督李福龍、節目策劃總監李仁和迎接下,探望該中心和藝術班,瞭解該中心的運作。

蔡細歷說,該中心擁有很好的概念,因為他們為多家兒童慈善機構提供免費的音樂、舞蹈和戲劇等課程,注重他們的身心發展和教導他們獨立。

“我會尋求私人界資助,籌20萬令吉用作兒童課程經費。”

該中心是全亞洲第一間以教導需要幫助兒童藝術課程為概念的慈善機構,自2008年創立以來,已收錄了超過250名各族學生,受惠單位包括慈愛福利中心、Rumah Ozanam等。

Baby is first 1MCA aid recipient

---->Help at hand: Dr Chua (left) at a press conference Friday after visiting the four-month-old baby at Gleneagles Hospital Kuala Lumpur. With him are the baby’s parents Ong and Ang.


KUALA LUMPUR: Hole-in-heart baby Ang Tian Teck is the first aid recipient from the 1MCA Medical Foundation, after MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek pledged it would pay the shortfall in his medical fees.

Speaking after visiting the boy, who had heart surgery yesterday, Dr Chua said the MCA should immediately help the four-month-old baby.

“This is a deserving and emergency case that cannot be further delayed,” said Dr Chua, who learned of the boy from a newspaper article.

“As a medical doctor, I know that this is a condition that probably needs the baby to stay in hospital for a long time. And the whole family will also be involved in an illness like this, as the father has had to quit his job to look after his baby.

“So we thought that we should step forward to help. We pledged to pay for any shortfall in expenditure for the surgical procedures. And we are willing to discuss with the parents if they need further funding.”

Ang is the first child of Ang Kek Guan, 38, and Ong Lay Pin, 38, a secretary, on whose income the household depends.

The baby, who suffers from ventricular septal defect, was transferred to the Gleneagles Hospital Kuala Lumpur from Klang General Hospital early this week.

The hospital’s consultant paediatric cardiologist Dr M.K. Lim said the baby underwent surgery on Wednes day and was expected to be out of the intensive care unit in two days.

“The child gets to go home in 10 days or two weeks,” he said, adding that Ang had been staying in the hospital since he was born.

He said the hospital was currently collecting donations for the baby’s medical fees totalling about RM30,000.

On the 1MCA Medical Foundation, Dr Chua said the MCA had managed to raise RM4.5mil in the two weeks since announcing its establishment.

“The response has been very positive. Therefore, we have decided to raise the target to RM10mil,” he added.

“We would like to thank Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak as he has agreed to give tax exemption for donations to the foundation.”

Dr Chua said he would meet with MCA deputy president and Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, who is the foundation’s selection committee chairman, to draft the guidelines for the foundation.

(吉隆坡14日訊)心臟有孔的4個月大男嬰翁天德亟需3萬令吉手術費修復缺陷,他將成為馬華剛成立的“一個馬華醫葯基金”所協助的第一個受惠者。

目前院方已著手為小天德籌募醫藥費,馬華總會長拿督斯里蔡細歷指出,馬華將從“一個馬華醫葯基金”中,撥款協助小天德的父母親繳清剩餘的醫療費。

他今日前往鷹閣醫藥中心探訪小天德後,在新聞發佈會上說,他是從報章上得知小天德的情況後聯絡院方,並告知院方這項消息。

“身為一名醫生,我知道小天德的情況危急,若不及早救治,他將須長期出入醫院,也苦了他的家人。

“我們也將和小天德的父母接洽,以瞭解他們是否需要進一步的援助。”

籌款目標增至1000萬

他指出,“一個馬華醫葯基金”在兩週前成立後,捐款從各方紛至沓來,目前已籌獲450萬令吉,距離馬華設定的500萬令吉目標不遠;鑒於反應熱烈,馬華決定將籌款目標增加到1千萬令吉。

他透露,首相拿督斯里納吉已答應捐獻者的善款可以扣稅,他明日將與馬華署理總會長兼衛生部長拿督斯里廖中萊,商討及擬定發放基金的指南。

出席者新聞發佈會者包括小天德的父親翁克圓、母親王麗彬(皆38歲)、鷹閣醫藥中心醫療主任潔燕蒂及主治醫生林敏康。

詢及院方已為小天德籌獲多少醫藥費時,潔燕蒂說,由於籌募活動才剛開始,因此現階段還未有確實數據。
