DAP 2009 BUDGET BRIEF

A. Introduction
The DAP 2009 Malaysian budget brief focuses on the twin challenges of global economic slowdown and our high dependence on oil and gas resources.

(i) Expected Global Economic Slowdown
The International Monetary Fund has announced that there was a 25 per cent chance that global growth would also slump to below three per cent in 2008, which is equivalent of a world recession. The IMF said global expansion over the last several years had rapidly dwindled due to financial turmoil created by the ongoing sub-prime mortgage crisis in the US.

In this crisis which started in 2007, lenders offered loans to higher-risk borrowers who were unable to pay their mortgages when interest rates went up. It has been estimated that this crisis in the US could spawn total losses of $945 billion.

As a result, housing prices in the US are sliding downward very rapidly resulting in a major stress on the US financial system.

Warren Buffett, often regarded as the world's wealthiest man, said the US economy is still in a recession and unlikely to improve before 2009. Optimism among US Chief Financial Officers have plummeted with three-quarters of them predicting a recession at some point during 2008 and nearly 90 percent say the economy will not rebound until 2009.

Therefore, Malaysia's economy cannot be expected to escape unscathed from the global
turbulence. The challenge for Malaysia's 2009 budget is hence how to soften the impact of the global economic slowdown and at the same time cushion its impact on the lower and middle income segments of the rakyat.

(ii) High Dependence on Oil & Gas Resources
Based on the latest figures provided by Petronas, Malaysia's government today is even more heavily dependent on oil and gas revenue than ever before. For 2008, oil and gas receipts is expected to contribute in excess of 40% of the Government's revenue, exceeding 37% the year before.

This is a worrying trend in the light of oil reserves which will last for only another 2 decades and Malaysia becoming a net oil importer by 2011.

The relative increase of the oil and gas dependence versus contribution from the other economic sectors effectively means that the rest of our economic activities have not grown by much, if at all. The all-important manufacturing sector which contributes to in excess of 30% of our Proposed DAP 2009 Budget Brief economy, and employs 30% of our workforce, is expected by Bank Negara Malaysia to grow by
a shocking 1.8%.

This also provides the basis for the fact that the rakyat do not feel any richer despite proclamations by the Government that the economy is doing well, as the rise in income from oil and gas sectors has not filtered down to the masses.

(iii) A Budget based on Competency, Accountability and Transparency (CAT)
The DAP Budget will serve as a distinct departure from the current administration's New Economic Policy (NEP) where racial factors plays the dominant role.

The underlying rationale and approach to our Budget is the “Malaysia Economic & National Unity Strategy” (MENU) which will be based on competence, accountability and transparency (CAT).

MENU is a policy to bring about national integration through just and equitable economic policies where the poor, regardless of race, religion or creed are given priority. In Malaysia's context, where the bumiputeras comprises the majority of the poor, particularly those from East Malaysia, they will be the largest beneficiaries of our MENU strategy and its programmes.

At the same time, it is imperative for the Government to build new capacities for the future to ensure that our productivity increase is more than sufficient to replace declining contribution from the oil and gas sector. We will also need to strengthen our social security system to ensure that the poor, less fortunate and under-privileged are not left behind in our pursuit for excellence. The wealth of natural resources on our shores must be shared equitably to make sure that everyone gets to benefit and taste the fruits of our land.

In implementing CAT policies, we must shake off our habit of designing world-class blueprints, only to fail miserably in their implementation. The DAP will put in place a robust system to improve productivity and competitiveness of the government's delivery system.

B. Budget Allocation Overview
Finally, we will utilise responsibly all fiscal measures and tax instruments to ensure that the country does not bury itself in debt and to avoid expenditure on mega-projects which are unlikely to bring significant benefits to the population. Our policies are designed to make ourselves competitive relative to our neighbours as well as to nurture dynamic innovative and entrepreneurial Malaysians.

We are anticipating a small increase in government revenue of approximately 3%, largely driven by oil and gas revenues but limited by a decline in corporate taxes to RM154.5 billion. However, we intend to maintain budget expenditure to RM177 billion as per the Government's budget 2008.

However, the allocations for operational and development expenditure will be restructured to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of government expenditure. Operational expenditure will be reduced from RM129 billion to RM120 billion or a 7% reduction. On the other hand, development expenditure will be increased from RM48 billion to RM57 billion or an increase of 19%.

Reductions in the government operating expenditure which has ballooned by more than 43% since 2005 will be achieved through strict enforcement via the policy of competency, accountability and transparency. The effects of such policies will create greater expenditure savings over the next few years.

Savings from reductions in operating expenditure will instead be channelled towards
development expenditure which will have a greater economic multiplier impact. The major beneficiaries of the increase in development expenditure in the DAP Budget 2009 will be the education, transportation and health sectors.

As a result of financial prudence, increasing the effective utilisation of the Government's revenue, the Government will be able to reduce its budget deficit from its estimated 3.1% in 2008 to 1.4% in 2009, without compromising its ability to pump-prime the economy in a weak global economic environment.

C. Key Policies

1. Protect Oil Revenues
DAP intends to legislating the use of oil and gas revenue to ensure that a substantial portion of the revenue is spent on education as well as research and development to build the necessary economic capacity for Malaysia, to ensure that the increases in productivity and innovation will more than compensate for the expected decline in oil revenues.

It is proposed that a minimum of 30% of oil and gas revenues be invested in human capital and research and development, while another 20% be used to strengthen the social security for Malaysians who are in need.

A further 10% shall be locked and invested in a oil stabilisation fund in the shape of the
very successful Norway's “Petroleum Fund” managed to protect the needs of our children and future generations to ensure that the economy will be able to withstand shocks to the system, especially when oil revenues run out within 2-3 decades.

Legislating the utilisation of funds will also prevent the misallocation of resources to bailout failed projects or other non-productive sectors ensuring transparency and accountability.

2. Investing in Education
RM45 billion accounting for 25% of the 2009 Budget will be allocated for education and training. The focus of the expenditure will be to enhance the qualitative elements of education instead of the quantitative elements. Of 100 new schools to be built, 25 and 5 will be Chinese and Tamil schools respectively to resolve the often severe overcrowding faced by many of these schools.

In addition, teachers will be given an average of 20% increase in pay-scale in order to attract some of Malaysia's best young talents to join the teaching force. This measure to arrest the decline, and increase the quality of teachers who are responsible for the education of our young ones. This increase in pay-scale is expected to cost approximately RM200 million for the 330,000 strong primary and secondary school teachers.

3. Creating An Efficient Transportation System
The development expenditure for transportation will be increased by 122% to from RM6.7 billion to RM15 billion to develop an holistic, efficient and convenient public transportation system for all congested urban city centres in Malaysia including the Klang Valley, Johor Bahru, Melaka and Penang.

This measure will seek long term solutions towards reliance on private motor vehicles ownership rate in Malaysia, which is among the highest in the world. Besides increasing the productivity of Malaysia's workforce, it will at the same time relieve the burden of the middle and lower income groups in the light of rising inflation as a result of significantly higher petrol prices.

A blueprint for the “Valley Circle” rail network will also be developed to improve intersuburban connectivity, by-passing the congested Kuala Lumpur city centre.
4. Renegotiating Unfair Contracts The Barisan Nasional Government's policies of guaranteeing highway toll concessionaires as well as independent power producers (IPPs) extraordinary profits with grossly unequal contracts with little or no risks to the latter are the clearest cases of the Government failing to protect public interest.

The impact of these policies are increasingly felt today with rapidly rising toll rates and energy prices. It is hence imperative that the Government renegotiate these contracts to protect the interest of the public within a 6 month period.

In the event whereby no significant headway is made in the negotiations, it is proposed that the Government move to acquire the assets of these entities. The resultant savings will then be passed on to consumers or be diverted to other public interest projects, such as the public transport system.

5. FairWage & Malaysia Bonus
As part of DAP's philosophy, no person or community in need, irrespective of race or
religion will be denied the necessary government assistance. In line with this, the DAP will implement “FairWage”, a policy which serves to improve the livelihood of low wage earners above the age of 35, which will at the same time incentivise employers to provide increased employment opportunities.

The FairWage system represents a total reengineering of our existing social welfare
systems, and ensures that the most needy within our society will receive the most
assistance from the Government. The following provides a summary of what FairWage
entails.

1. To increase that take-home pay, workers will contribute a lower rate to the EPF. For with pay below RM900 per month, employee contribution to the fund will be waived while for those with income of not more than RM1,400 per month, the employee's contribution to EPF shall be reduced from the current 11% to 5%.

2. To make them more employable, employers will reduce their rate of contribution to the EPF. For workers above the age of 35 to 55, earning between RM900 to RM1,400 per month, the employer contribution shall remain at the current 12%. For those earning less than RM900 per month in the same age group, the employer contribution shall decline to 10%.

3. To compensate for the above, the Government will give workers FairWage income
supplements to achieve a higher level of income. For workers aged 45 and above, receiving monthly income below RM900 per month, they will receive an annual income supplement of RM2,400. For those workers above the age of 35 earning less thanRM1, 400 per month will receive RM1,600 per annum. An additional 10% on top of the income supplement shall be applied to those who live in the Klang Valley, Johor Bahru as well as on the Penang Island to cope with the higher cost of living. Of the supplement, a quarter shall be in cash form, while the balance will be channelled into the EPF accounts. By channelling a larger portion into the EPF, it will help the workers save for their future needs.

Separately, a “Malaysia Bonus” of up to RM1,200 will be granted to Malaysians with income not more than RM3,000 per month.

Also, in order to assist the elderly above the age of 60, many who are having problems making ends meet, those qualified will enjoy an the “Senior Malaysian Bonus” of up to RM1,000. These bonuses are channelled into their respective EPF accounts.

The FairWage policy and Malaysian bonus will cost approximately RM9.3 billion to
administer. It is part of the proposed programme to share the fruits of the nation's wealth, particular from the oil and gas sector with all Malaysians in need.
In the longer term, more assistance programmes will be carried out in this grant-based mechanisms which are means tested instead of via subsidies which are distortionary in their impact, and often disproportionately benefiting the wealthy.
6. Open, Competitive & Transparent Tenders It part of our MENU strategy that all Government contracts should be tendered in an open, competitive and transparent manner, in line with our CAT philosophy. All qualified companies shall be provided with equal opportunities to secure Government supply contracts and projects.
To prevent overwhelming disruptions to the current system, this policy which is free from race-based requirements, shall be implemented on a gradual basis, commencing with projects or supply contracts sized above RM10 million for 2009. In view of the challenges brought by globalisation, all tenders shall be made competitive, open and transparent by 2015.

Assuming a conservative 10% savings is achieved via this CAT-based system, this will result in absolute savings in excess of RM5 billion per annum in conjunction with quality improvements on the Government's operational expenditure alone.

7. Open, Competitive & Transparent Auctions
Again in line with DAP's CAT philosophy, besides procurement, all sales of state assets, award of licenses and special rights shall be conducted via open, competitive and transparent auctions. All state land for example, must be alienated and sold under a competitive bidding system to ensure highest returns for the state.
In addition, as a part of our new source of revenue as well as to negate the rent-seeking culture, the approved permits (APs) such as those currently issued for free by the Ministry of International Trade & Industry to a select pool of “businessmen” shall be auctioned to the highest bidders instead.

Based on an estimated 70,000 APs issued per annum and a conservative RM25,000 market
price, the auction will provide an additional RM1.75 billion to the government coffers.

8. Seeding Creativity & Innovation
The transformation of the Malaysian economy into one that is knowledge-based will not succeed without the critical ingredient of innovation and entrepreneurship. Therefore it is proposed that the Government set up a new RM250 million seed fund, STARTUP where we will act as a matching co-investment fund with reputable private investors who will assist in the mentorship of the start up companies.

To encourage private investor participation, losses incurred by such investments shall be tax deductible from the investors' individual or corporate income tax. To further boost entrepreneurship, start-ups shall enjoy full tax exemption on their first RM200,000 chargeable income for each of their first 3 years of assessment.
9. Revitalising Malaysian SMEs Small medium enterprises constitutes approximately 99% of all enterprises in the country.

However, their proportionate importance in terms of tax contributions to the Government has clearly declined with the increased dependence on oil and gas revenue.

With substantial increases in the cost of raw materials as well as steep increases in the price of fuel and electricity, many Malaysian SMEs are facing difficulties in maintaining competitiveness.

To revitalise the SME sector, and to assist many SMEs whose counterparts in many
countries in the region enjoy significant tax advantages, it is proposed that the tax rate for SMEs on their first RM500,000 chargeable income be reduced to 18% from the current 20%.

In addition, a new partial tax exemption threshold will be set at RM200,000 and taxed at 12%. This means that a SME with a chargeable income of RM900,000 will be taxed at an effective rate of 18%, in line, particularly with its competitors across the causeway in Singapore. This measure will help make Malaysian SMEs to be more competitive and at the same time attract more SMEs to set up business in Malaysia, creating more employment opportunities.

10. Restructuring Personal Income Taxes
DAP is proposing a 1% reduction of the top tax bracket to 27%. More importantly
however, there will be a revision and a simplification of the progressive tax brackets which will result in significant reduction in taxes by all.

Most importantly, to assist Malaysians to cope with the rise in living expenses, particularly in urban areas, the first RM15,000 chargeable income will become tax exempt, with the subsequent RM15,000 taxed at 7%. Currently, only the first RM2,500 is tax exempt while the next RM2,500 is taxed at 1%.

Based on the new tax structure, a married worker with RM3,000 pay per month, a full-time housewife who looks after 2 young children will pay no taxes, whereas under the previous tax structure, he will be expected to pay between RM55 to RM445 depending on his insurance premiums and medical expenses for his family, including parents.

11. Introducing Green Taxes
The rate of global climate changes is accelerating and it has become absolutely necessary for Malaysia to play its part in protecting the environment. Hence, a “Green Tax” is to be implemented in 2010 whereby a “carbon tax” is charged at RM25 per tonne of CO2 equivalent, with the exception of methane emissions from the agricultural sector as well as special exemptions for carbon intensive businesses which adopts global best practices on emissions.

In addition, a 5% severance tax shall be imposed on the extraction of metals and forestry products in the country. However, companies which secure certification from The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) accredited certification bodies will be granted the severance tax exemption for promoting responsible management of the forest.

12. Increasing Women Workforce Participation
Women will also benefit significantly with the proposed extension of paid maternity leave from 60 to 90 days if they have worked for at least 180 days prior to delivery with the employer. Their pay for the 3rd month will be shared equally by both the employer as well as the government.

This together with other complementary measures such as increasing childcare facilities in the workplace will play their role in strengthening the bond between the mother and child, promoting strong family values, while at the same time, encourage more women to join the workforce.

As at 2004, Malaysian women participation in the work force stands at 47.3%, significantly below that of our neighbours, Singapore and Thailand at 53.9% and 64.2% respectively.

13. Reviving the Information Communications & Technology (ICT) Sector
When the Government launched the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) project 10 years ago, it promised to make every effort to grow and support local MSC status companies.

However, despite the rhetoric, the Government being the largest consumer of information technology services in Malaysia has not given preference to these companies.

It is therefore important that in this proposed budget, Malaysian MSC status companies be given specific preference in tendering for the Government IT-related contracts to help nurture these companies into successful regional players.

14. Participation of Civil Society
Finally, this budget represents a budget which seeks active involvement from the civil society. Instead of attempting to tackle all issues on its own, which the government will not be able to competently and effectively, sizeable grants will be made available to specialist non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to promote, educate and run various social causes and programmes.

RM240 million has been set aside as partial or full grants for NGOs to pursue environmental causes, eliminating poverty, promote healthy living, managing women issues or assisting the disabled, to be disbursed over the next 5 years.

民主行动党2009年预算案简述

A. 前言
民主行动党2009年马来西亚人预算案简介的两项重点是:全球经济放缓,以及我们对石油及天然气的高度依赖。

(i) 全球经济预计放缓
国际货币基金组织(IMF)已经宣布全球经济成长有25%的机率在2008年将跌至3%,等于说全球经济衰退。国际货币基金组织说,全球过去几年的经济增长已经由于美国次房贷危机所引发的金融危机而迅速减缓。

这场始于2007年的次房贷危机,是由于贷款者将贷款发放给高风险借贷人,以致他们在贷款利率上升时,无法偿还贷款。据估计,这场危机可能导致美国损失了9450亿美元。

结果,美国的房屋价格迅速地下跌,为该国的金融体系带来极大的压力。

华仁普菲特,是全世界公认的最富有的人,他说,美国经济还在衰退着,在2009年之前都不会复苏。四分之三的美国首席财务主管也不乐观,他们预料2008年将会衰退, 近乎90%说经济不会在2009年回转。

因此,马来西亚的经济无可避免地将受到全球经济危机的影响。这项2009年马来西亚人预算案的宗旨在于如何减缓全球经济放缓的冲击,同时,减少它对中低层收入的人民所带来的影响。

(ii) 高度依赖石油和天然气资源
根据国油最新的数据显示,马来西亚政府比从前更加依赖石油及天然气的收入,2008年,石油和天然气的收入预计是政府税收的40%,比去年的37%还高。

这个趋势令人担心,因为我国的石油库存只能维持多20年,而马来西亚将在2011年成为石油净入口国。

将我国对石油与天然气的依赖,来与经济领域的贡献相比,意味着我国的经济活动并没有显著增长。国家银行惊人的发现,为我国经济带来30%收入、雇用我国30%人力资源的制造业,竟然只成长了1.8%。

这也为印证了一项事实,那就是尽管政府不断地宣称经济良好,但是人民还是感受不到,因为来自石油及天然气的利盈并没有让广大群众受惠。

(iii) 以能干、公信及透明( CAT )为基础的预算
这份预算案亦跟目前政府所强调、以种族为主导的新经济政策绝对不同。本预算案所阐述的理念及采用的策略,乃以能干、公信及透明(CAT)为基础,并称之为“马来西亚经济及国民团结策略”(MENU)。 该策略旨通过公正、平等的经济政策,那就是不分种族、宗教或信仰地优先扶助穷人,带来国民团结。在马来西亚,土著占了贫穷阶级的绝大多数,特别是东马的土著,将会是这项策略及计划的最大受益群体。

因此,为了未来发展需要,政府必需开创本身的新能力,以确保一旦石油与天然气税收减少后,我们还可提高本身的生产能力,而不仅止于足够应付需求。与此同时,我们也将加强本身的社会安全制度,以确保贫穷者、不幸者及地位不高的一群,不会在我们追求卓越的过程中被抛落人后。我们必须让全民公平分享这个国家通过天然资源所赚取的财富,以确保每个人皆能受惠并尝到果实。

在推行能干、公信及透明(CAT)的政策方面,我们也必须摒弃“光有世界一流概念,执行能力严重不足”的恶习。民主行动党将设立强而有力的机制,以提高公共交付系统的生产力及竞争力。

B. 预算案拨款概述
最后,我们将以负责任的态度善用所有财务措施及税务机制,以确保我国不会面对债务问题,同时尽量避免耗费不会带给国民太大利益的大型工程。我们的政策设计是要确保我们比邻国更具有竞争力,同时培育具有创新思维及企业精神的马来西亚人。

我们预算政府的税收将会增加3%,这些收入大部份来自石油天然气,但是企业税收则会减少至1545亿令吉。不过,我们还是会像2008年预算那样,维持预算开销在1770亿令吉。

不过,我们将重组行政开销及发展开销,以提高政府开销的效力与效率。我们将把行政开销削减7%,从1290亿令吉减至1200亿令吉。另一方面,发展开销则会增加19%,从480亿令吉,增加到570亿令吉。

政府行政开销自2005年增加了43%,我们将通过严格执行能干、公信及透明的政策,削减行政开销。从中节省下来的钱将作为未来几年的开销诸备。

从行政开销节省下来的储蓄,将转移到发展开销,以创造更高的经济效应。行动党2009年财政预算案的发展开销主要将支出给教育、交通及卫生三大领域。

通过开源节流,这将有效增加政府税收的运用能力,政府也将有能力将财政赤字从2008年3.1%减至2009年1.4%。在全球经济衰退的环境中,继续扮演其推动经济的角色。

C. 主要政策

1. 保护石油税收
行动党拟立法规定石油及天然气收入的使用以确保足够的份额被花费在教育、研究及发展上,以加强马来西亚的经济基础,并确保生产力及创新力能够赶上石油税收日益减少的趋势。

行动党建议至少将30%的石油天然气税收入投资在人文资本、研究及发展,另外的20 % 则用在马来西亚需要帮助的一群, 加强社会保障。

另外的10%将会被储蓄及投资在石油稳定基金,将挪威那样设立一个“石油基金”,以保障我们的孩子及新一代的需要,确保经济能够经得起制度改变的冲击,特别是未来20-30年内,石油的税收将用尽。

立法规定上述收入的用途,可避免有关款项被滥用来拯救面临失败的发展计划,或推动其它没有生产力领域的发展。

2. 教育投资
我们将拨出450亿令吉作为教育及培训用途。这笔拨款占2009年财政预算案开销的25%比率。这笔费用将用来提升教育的质量,而不只是注重数量的提升。

我们将兴建100所新学校,其中包括25所华小及5所淡小,以解决这些学校面对校舍拥挤的问题。

此外,我们也将为教师加薪20%,以吸引更多的青年才俊加入执教队伍。这项措施是为了应付师资不足的问题,同时也提升肩负教育我国未来主人翁的教师的素质。这项加薪预计会耗资2亿令吉,并让33万名中小学教师从中受益。

3. 创造高效率的公共交通系统
公共交通系统的发展开销将会增加122%,从67亿令吉增加至150亿令吉,在全马各个拥挤的城市包括巴生谷、新山及槟城发展一套全方位、有效率及便捷的公共交通系统。

这项措施长远来说,可以减少马来西亚人对私家车的依赖,我国的私家车拥有率是全世界最高的。除了提高马来西亚劳工的生产力,同时,也能减轻中低层收放入者在汽油上涨后导致的通货膨胀所面对的负担。

我们将推出一个称为“谷中圈”(Valley Circle)的铁路网发展蓝图,以提升各城郊的公共交通衔接度,从而避开高度阻塞的吉隆坡市中心。

4. 重新谈判不平等合约
国阵政府保障收费大道公司及独立发电厂获取非一般盈利的政策,包括跟这些大道公司及独立发电厂签署完全不平等,而且对方只需承担超低甚至完全没有风险的合约,足以证明政府没有办法保障公众的利益。

随着大道收费及能源价格不断调高,让人民如今更深刻感受到这些政策所构成的负面影响。因此,政府有必要在未来6个月内,重新针对这些合约展开谈判,以保障公众的利益。

若这些谈判过程无法取得成效,我们建议政府收购实体所拥有的资产。通过这些方式所节约的开销,将可让消费人获益匪浅,或是转为推动其他涉及公众利益的工程,例如公共交通系统。

5. 公平工资及马来西亚人花红
作为行动党所坚守的施政哲学之一,任何有需要的个人或群体,不管属于什么种族或宗教,都可接收到政府的协助。有鉴于此,民主行动党将推行“公平工资”政策,以下为“公平工资”的简介:

1. 增加员工的净所得,员工将缴纳较低的公积金。收入每月低入900 令吉者,雇员可豁免缴纳公积金而那些每月收入不超过1 400 令吉者,雇员的公积金缴交率将从目前的11%减少至5%。

2. 为了使雇员具备可雇用条件,雇主将减少他们的公积金缴交率。至于35至55岁的雇员,若每月收入介于900 令吉至1 千400 令吉,雇主缴交率将保留在现有的12%,而那些每月收入少于900 令吉者,雇主缴交率将减少至10%。
3. 为了进行补偿,政府将提供公平工资收入辅助金以取得更高的收入。对于45 岁及以上的员工,若他们每月收入低于900 令吉,他们将获得每年2400 令吉的辅助金。对于35 岁以上、每月收入低于1 400 令吉,每年可获1 600 令吉辅助金。为了协助居住在巴生谷、新山以及槟岛的居民应付高生活水平,他们将获得辅助金的10 %的额外辅助。

这些辅助金的四分之一将以现金支付,剩余的款额将转存入公积金户口。将更大份额的款项转入公积金,能协助工人为他们的未来存款。

通过“马来西亚人花红”计划,我们将为每月收入不超过3千令吉者,提供高达1200令吉的花红。为了协助60岁以上、日常生活面对问题的乐龄人士,我们将发出高达1000令吉的“马来西亚乐龄花红”予所有符合资格者。这些花红将直接汇入他们各别的公积金户头。

我们预计要耗费93亿令吉来推行“公平工资”政策及“马来西亚人花红”。这是我们要让全体有需要者分享国家财富,尤其是石油与天然气资源的其中一部分计划。长期而言,我们将通过可行并以拨款为主的机制设立更多援助计划,而非通过提供补贴歪曲其真正的用意,甚至导致富裕者最终受惠。

6. 公开、具竞争力及透明的方式招标
马来西亚经济与国民团结策略其中一大支柱,就是要求所有的政府合约以公开、具竞争力和透明的方式招标,符合我们的能干、公信及透明(CAT)原则。所有符合资格的公司,应享有竞标政府供应合约及工程的均等机会。

为了避免对现有制度构成严重影响,这个非以种族为导向的政策,必须以循序渐进的方式去落实,即从2008年开始规定所有规模超过1000万令吉的工程或供应合约必须公开招标。鉴于全球化所带来的挑战,所有政府工程必须在2015年以具竞争力、公开与透明的方式去落实。

若以政府采用新的招标制度能够节约10%开销作保守估计,这相等于我们每年可节省超过50亿令吉的开销,同时带来素质提升。

7. 开放、竞争以及透明投标
配合民主行动党推行的能干、公信及透明(CAT)信念,所有订购程序、州政府产业买卖、执照的批准以及特许权利应该透过公开,具竞争力以及透明的招标进行。比方说就所有州政府的土地而言,在转让与脱售的过程中,必须是在符合竞争标准的制度下进行,以确保州政府获取高额回酬。

作为政府新增的部分收入并减少寻租文化,国际贸易及工业部目前颁给一小撮特定“商人”的汽车入口准证(AP),今后应该通过拍卖方式颁给出价最高者。

若以政府每年预计发出 7 万张汽车入口准证,以及每张准证市价保守估计为2 万5千令吉计算,这类拍卖活动每年可为政府财库带来高达 17亿5千万令吉的收入。

8. 培植创意与创新精神
若没有创意能力及企业精神,马来西亚要转型为知识经济体根本不会成功。因此,我们提议政府设立2 亿5 千万令吉的种子基金――STARTUP(启动基金),以便作为我们跟信誉良好的私人投资者合作设立投资基金,进而为新创立的公司提供咨询服务。

为了鼓励私人界参与,这类投资所蒙受的损失,将从投资者的个人所得税或公司所得税扣除。为了促进企业成长,新公司在首3个估税年,其首20万令吉的可征税收入可享有全面免税。

9. 重塑马来西亚中小型企业
在全国注册公司当中,有99%为中小型企业。然而中小型企业的重要性却随着过度依赖石油和天然气收入而遽减。
随着原料价格的总体上升,以及原料与电费的价格飙升,许多马来西亚中小型企业面临了失去竞争优势的困境。

若要重振中小型企业领域,同时协助我国的中小型企业跟全球相竞争,我们建议中小型企业首50 万令吉可征税收入所缴纳的公司所得税应从现有的20%调低至 18 %。

除此之外,我们建议从新的税务年开始,在 20 万令吉的水平上制订另一个豁免税务的新门槛,即首 20 万令吉可征税收入只缴纳 12 %的公司所得税。这意味着可征税收入90高 万另令吉 的中小型企业,所需缴纳的有效所得税为 18%。这种情况跟长堤对岸的新加坡竞争者所要缴纳的税率一样。这个措施能够助使马来西亚的中小型企业更具竞争力,同时吸引更多商家到马来西亚设立中小型企业,进而创造更多的就业机会。

10. 重组个人所得税
民主行动党提议最高征税率减少1%,即减至27%。然而,更重要的是,我们将检讨及简化累进税收等级,以达到显著的减税效果。最重要的是,为了协助马来西亚人应付日渐提高的生活水平,特别是城市地区的生活水平, 首1万5千令吉可征税收入将获得免税,而紧接下来的1万5千令吉则征收7%所得税。目前,只有首2千500令吉收入可获得免税,而紧接下来的2千500令吉则征税1%。

11. 根据新的税务架构,一名每月收入、育有两个孩子、妻子为全职家庭主妇及月入3千令吉的打工一族根本不必缴税。若根据原有的所得税制度,他预计需要缴付介于55至445令吉的所得税。(胥视其缴付的保险费,以及支
付家人包括父母亲的医药费而定)

12. 推介绿色税务
由于全球气温急剧上升,马来西亚绝对有必要履行环保的责任。因此,我们将从2010年开始征收“绿色税务”,同时对二氧化碳相关产品征收每公吨25令吉的“碳税”。然而,农业领域所排出的甲烷,以及碳气密集行业若采用世
界最佳的排放标准,则可享有特别免税的优惠。

除此以外,我们将针对国内的金属与森林产品征用5%的开采税。不过,获得森林管理委员会 (FSC) 所认可的公司,将可豁免缴纳开采税,从而推广负责任的森林管理作业。

12. 增加女性劳动力量的参与
女性也将从替代预算案中受惠,民主行动党建议只要在临产前为雇主工作至少180天,妇女可享有从60天增至90天的产假。至于她们第3个月产假的薪金则由政府与雇主共同支付。

若加上这份财政预算案所提议的其它措施,肯定有助于加强母亲与孩子的关系、强化家庭价值观,同时鼓励更多女性投身职场。

截至2004年,国内的工作女性比率占47.3%,即比新加坡与泰国各为53.9%与64.2%的比率还要低。

13.激活资讯与通讯科技领域
当政府在10年前推介多媒体超级走廊计划时,政府承诺将竭尽所能栽培及扶持国内的多媒体超级走廊地位公司。然而,这些承诺终究空洞无物。反观政府作为国内资讯工艺服务的最大消费者,显然没有特别惠及国内的公司。

这份预算案所提的另一个重点,就是让多媒体超级走廊地位公司享有特别待遇,能够竞标政府跟资讯工艺相关的合约,进而协助栽培这些公司成为本区域的佼佼者。

14. 增加公民社会的参与
最后,这份文献乃代表让公民社会积极参与的财政预算案。与其独自尝试解决所有的问题,而政府又没有能力且不能有效处理这些问题,因此政府应提供可观的拨款予特定非政府组织,共同协助推广、教育与推行各种有益社会
的活动和计划。

我们建议拨出2400万令吉,作为未来5年逐步发放、部分或悉数给予非政府组织的拨款,以协助解决环境问题、消除贫穷、鼓吹健康生活、处理妇女议题或是协助残缺人士。

只是一种流行性感冒

你还记得立百病毒蔓延的惊栗吗? 1998年10月9日,一名以猪粪施肥的柚子园工人李桂桃「突然」病逝。这一天起,半岛有史以来最可怕的脑炎悲剧掀开了恐慌的序幕。

无论如何,《马新华人资讯汇报月刊》2000年4月和5月专号收集的剪报显示,死者逼临50人之后的1999年3月18日,卫生部仍旧咬定肆虐病毒是所谓的「日本脑炎」。

同一天,美国阿特兰大的病毒疾病及佝偻病主任Brian Mahy经已证明「新病毒与亨德拉有关」;然则,所有的防范还是针对「日本脑炎」。唯有苦等到1999年4月11日,马来亚大学的林世杰教授和蔡求明医生确认了立百才是罪魁祸首。

事隔将近十年,我们是否已从历史的抱憾终身学习如何面对病菌的滋生? 2008年6月28日报道翔实的《星洲日报》揭露,昔加末登能武吉巴都园丘怀疑爆发基孔肯雅症(Chikungunya fever),34人疑受感染。

柔州卫生局主任莫哈末开利耶谷当天说,经有14人送院,证实染上此症,另有两、三人留医观察。

基孔肯雅症病例飙升

7月30日《星洲》引述卫生部疾病控制组(Epidemiology Unit/Bahagian Kawalan Penyakit)主任哈山阿都拉曼(Hassan Abdul Rahman),基孔肯雅症从前年的少过10宗,攀升至去年不到100宗,本年突然迄今飙涨631宗,波及柔佛、马六甲、霹雳和森美兰的20疫区。

8月1日昔加末县属卫生局长查哈拉医生向《星洲》证实,7月份县内共有50多宗蚊症病,6人患上基孔肯雅症,疫情受到控制。查哈拉医生并且「吁请居民勿随便散播谣言」。

8月15日《星洲》重点报道【利民达愁云笼罩?逾千人患基孔肯雅症】;消息又说,7月20日开始昔加末(Segamat)以西的利民达(Jementah)镇陆续出现基孔肯雅症患者。当地诊所资料显示,当地因此症状就医的患者每天超过百人。

8月16日《星洲》跟进病变,利民达当地居民碰面的问候语,已从「吃饱了吗」改为「基孔肯雅症了吗」。民间偏方随之四起:凉茶、椰子、还有闻所未闻的清汤煮雄蟹。

此文见报,8月16日《中国报》C4版选刊卫生局局长查哈拉医生再次澄清,昔县目前没人患上基孔肯雅症。局长揭示,「近期内,昔县不少人因为发高烧,全身骨痛难忍,呕吐,发红疹而感到担忧,那只是一种流行性感冒,非基孔肯雅症」。

她促请私人诊疗所「千万别从表面断定此症,否则将会引起恐慌」。查哈拉医生透露,县内只在6月期间武吉巴都(Bukit Batu)园丘6人证实患上基孔肯雅症,病者皆已痊愈云云。

8月17日《东方日报》A14版独家图解详列柔甲二州相关数据,选用字眼特别谨慎也有点暧昧:「疑似病例」。据此图表,至8月17日止,两地疑似病例至少947宗;全国核实案例至少631宗。

亲见这些眼花缭乱,不一而足的统计,读者就是没有得到基孔肯雅症,恐怕也四肢酸痛,周身乏力了:究竟是几人身染此症呢?

如果投报个案仍然停留在631宗的这个数字没有错误,明显的是,介于8月1日至8月17日的时段,国内果然「没人患上基孔肯雅症」!

困惑的是,即便「没人患上基孔肯雅症」,局长如何就此推论利民达镇上上千的人所得自然都是「流行性感冒」?何况这个感冒的流传方式也未免比SHE流行了。

实情毕竟如何,风度翩翩的卫生部长廖仲莱部长至今只在8月7日说病症没有扩散,18日表示或强制呈报基孔肯雅症。轻轻一个「或」字,联想翩翩,可圈可点。

或许大家都知道廖部长正为竞逐马华副总会长绞尽心计,不愿加剧他的忧心忡忡。得到Ministry of Hell下属从善如流,如此这般的体贴入微,也真是他的福气啊。

何况,基孔肯雅症又不会死人的;角逐马华副总会长不然,存亡旦夕,落选并发症绝对惨过基孔肯雅症。两者相较,轻重缓急,一目了然。利民达的乡亲父老「不该乱调,只讲成效」,不要再给部长伤脑筋了。

一旦马华改选雨过天晴,病情想必自有结果。说不定林世杰教授和蔡求明医生还能从中发现这个集体感冒,根本不是什么「流行性感冒」,而是简称「利民感冒」的「一种利民达感冒」!

报告卫生部长廖仲莱,报告前任卫生部长蔡细历医生,报告前前任卫生部长蔡锐明;某些官僚作业感冒症,是否会隔代遗传?除此之外,我再没有其他的话可说了。

Pertanyaan Lisan yang dijawap dalam Dewan Rakyat

Punca dari ms.14 Penyata Rasmi Parlimen Malaysia

8.
Tuan Er Teck Hwa [Bakri] minta MENTERI KESIHATAN menyatakan berapakah jumlah pesakit yang memerlukan rawatan dialisis di setiap daerah dalam negeri Johor. Berapakah jumlah hospital yang telah menyediakan kemudahan mesin dialisis pada tahun 2006, 2007, 2008. Apakah jenis bantuan yang diberikan oleh kerajaan kepada pesakit.

Timbalan Menteri Kesihatan [Datuk Dr. Haji Abdul Latiff bin Ahmad]: Tuan Yang di-Pertua, pada tahun 2007 jumlah pesakit yang memerlukan rawatan hemodialisis di hospital-hospital negeri Johor berjumlah 102 orang pesakit dan semua hospital-hospital Kementerian Kesihatan yang berjumlah 11 buah hospital di negeri Johor telah pun menyediakan kemudahan tersebut dan untuk terakhir kerajaan memberi bantuan subsidi sebanyak RM50 setiap kali rawatan bagi mereka yang mendapatkan rawatan di luar daripada hospital kerajaan, terima kasih.

Tuan Er Teck Hwa [Bakri]: Terima kasih Tuan Yang di-Pertua. Soalan tambahan saya
ialah apakah program yang telah dan akan dijalankan oleh kementerian untuk mendidik pesakit-pesakit buah pinggang supaya mendapat rawatan yang betul memandangkan keadaan pesakit buah pinggang kian bertambah adakah kementerian bercadang menyediakan lebih banyak mesin dialisis untuk keperluan ini. Terima kasih.

■1050
Datuk Dr. Haji Abdul Latiff bin Ahmad: Terima kasih Tuan Yang di-Pertua. Kementerian Kesihatan sentiasa melihat keperluan-keperluan bagi menyediakan perkhidmatan mesin hemodialisis ini dari semasa ke semasa. Memang menjadi hasrat kita untuk menubuhkan setiap hospital ada pusatnya dan sehingga kini ada 122 dan kita akan tambah mengikut keperluan. Untuk soalan tambahan yang kedua, sebenarnya untuk merawat pesakit end-stage kidney failure dengan izin adalah disebabkan oleh dua faktor penyakit. Pertama penyakit darah tinggi dan kedua penyakit kencing manis. Jadi kalau kita hanya merawat mereka di hujung bila mereka sudah kena penyakit tersebut dan tidak boleh digunakan lagi buah pinggang. Maka kita kena hemodialisis tetapi rawatan yang betul ialah kita rawat mereka awal lagi bila mereka kena penyakit kencing manis dan penyakit darah tinggi. Sebab itu kita sudah pun menubuhkan satu unit khas dalam bahagian non-communicable diseases di mana kita tumpukan diseases burden dengan izin di peringkat awal bukan di peringkat akhir. Terima kasih.

Datuk Halimah binti Mohamed Sadique [Tenggara]: Terima kasih Yang Berhormat
Tuan Yang di-Pertua. Jangan ganggu saya!

Yang Berhormat Tuan Yang di-Pertua, soalan saya kepada Yang Berhormat Menteri, kita
dengar tadi dari segi jumlah. Setiap tahun jumlah pesakit yang memerlukan rawatan dialisis ini semakin meningkat. Kempen gaya hidup sihat dan telah pun dilancarkan oleh kerajaan seolah-olah tidak berjaya merubah sikap rakyat ke arah pengamalan gaya hidup yang sihat. Saya nak tahu daripada kementerian, apakah tindakan dan usaha-usaha yang akan dijalankan oleh kerajaan dalam menilai kembali segala program dan juga kaedah yang telah dilancarkan untuk melahirkan masyarakat modal insan yang lebih sihat dan produktif pada masa yang akan datang.Terima kasih.

Datuk Dr. Haji Abdul Latiff bin Ahmad: Terima kasih.

Timbalan Yang di-Pertua [Datuk Dr. Haji Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar]: Orang Johor,jawab Johor.

Datuk Dr. Haji Abdul Latiff bin Ahmad: Terima kasih. Semua keluarga Johor ya, tadi
pun Bakri. Terima kasih Yang Berhormat Tenggara. Yang Berhormat Tenggara sebenarnya dia lebih mahir daripada saya. Yang Berhormat Tenggara adalah Exco kesihatan tiga penggal, saya baru penggal kedua. [Ketawa]

Tuan Haji Mahfuz bin Omar [Pokok Sena]: Boleh ganti, turunlah.

Datuk Dr. Haji Abdul Latiff bin Ahmad: Yang Berhormat Pokok Sena, tunggu dululah.
Selepas 16 September...

Tuan Haji Mahfuz bin Omar [Pokok Sena]: Nak bagi Tenggara.

Dr. Haji Mohd. Puad bin Zarkashi [Batu Pahat]: Tapi dia Menteri Alam Sekitar.

Datuk Dr. Haji Abdul Latiff bin Ahmad: Ada adab sikitlah, kata daripada parti Islam,
tapi tidak ada adab. [Ketawa] Islam itu kan ada tiga...

Timbalan Yang di-Pertua [Datuk Dr. Haji Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar]: Tak apa, tak apa Yang Berhormat.

Tuan Haji Mahfuz bin Omar [Pokok Sena]: Janganlah marah.

Tuan Mohd. Firdaus Jaafar [Jerai]: Jawab dulu Yang Berhormat Menteri.

Datuk Dr. Haji Abdul Latiff bin Ahmad: Tak marah, ini ketawa ni. [Ketawa] Nak
katakan bahawa Program Gaya Hidup Sihat yang kita lancarkan sejak tahun 1996, pelbagai program kita buat dan yang terakhir ini “Bagaimana Hendak Menangani Stres?”, itu tidak berjaya saya rasa tidak betul, tidak tepat. Akan tetapi macam biasa bila kita nak ubah tabii yang biasa menjadi tabii luar biasa atau luar tabii, itu susah Tuan Yang di-Pertua. Ia memerlukan iltizam yang kuat, iman yang teguh, baru dapat.

Umpamanya, kita semua tahu kita makan di sebelah utara atau sebelah pantai timur, kita makan nasi sampai lima kali sehari. Kalau dulu, dia makan nasi lima kali sehari kerana dia buat bendang, okey lah. Namun kini kerja di pejabat, dia makan tetap lima kali juga sehari dan makan yang begini kalau kita tidak ubah, kita akan jadi rakyat Amerika. Rakyat Amerika 63% daripada penduduk adalah yang besar dan kembang, obes. [Ketawa]

Jadi kita kena betulkanlah dan ini memerlukan bukan sahaja Kementerian Kesihatan dan semua masyarakat supaya kita mempunyai iltizam yang betul-betul teguh supaya kita dapat memahami penyakit tersebut. Insya-Allah kalau kita betul-betul serius, kita boleh menangani isuisu yang berkait rapat dengan gaya hidup kita. Terima kasih.

Watch what you eat advice

MALAYSIANS have been advised to watch what they eat before they become like the Americans, Deputy Health Minister Datuk Dr Abdul Latiff Ahmad said.

“Sixty-three per cent of Americans are all besar dan kembang (big and bloated), obese,” he said when replying to a supplementary question from Datuk Halimah Mohamed Sadiq (BN – Tenggara).

Halimah had asked if the ministry had plans to educate society about keeping a healthy lifestyle.

Dr Abdul Latiff said it would not be easy to change the people’s lifestyle, adding that a person needed strong will and determination.

He said most people were used to their eating habits.

“For example, it used to be all right if a man ate rice five times a day because of hard labour. But today, the man continues to have rice five times a day even though he has an office job,” said Dr Abdul Latiff.

Earlier, while replying to the original question from Er Teck Hwa (DAP – Bakri), Dr Abdul Latiff said there were 180 kidney dialysis patients for every million residents in Johor.

He said that in 2007, there were 102 end-stage renal disease patients who needed treatment.

盼周四返国会宣誓就任 安华要引领第二次独立

《独立新闻在线》转载

【本刊陈慧思、曾薛霏撰述】甫当选槟州峇东埔国会议员的安华,昨晚在本南地的东姑百能(Tengku Bainon)师训学院的草场告诉逾万名支持者,他的当选是人民的胜利,而峇东埔人民已经传达出明确的讯息——人民要独立!

安华表示,补选成绩已证明人民要求改变、渴望独立。人民也要司法独立、媒体独立、要公平分配经济资源、拒绝贪污腐败等。他认为,人民今天给于独立一个新意义,他也带领支持者高喊三声“默迪卡”(merdeka)。

他说:“今日我们给出了一个坚定的答案,我们要改变、我们要独立,人民不想被残害和被愚弄,我们拒绝诽谤和贪腐,我们要维护人民命运的经济议程,我们要燃油降价!”

他继说:“可是,我们要降油价,就必须抵达布城!”遍布操场的支持者皆以热烈的欢呼声响应。

安华也向支持者重申其承诺,即拒绝摸黑的政治、贪污,并以新的经济议程保障所有人民的生活。

进入去种族政治时代

逾万名人民公正党支持者傍晚六时陆续抵达登姑拜能师训学院的草场,并且耐心地等候补选成绩揭晓。当选举委员会宣布安华正式当选时,草场外点燃了璀璨夺目的烟花。

当安华与一众民联领袖抵达时,受到支持者热烈的欢迎,支持者不断高喊“烈火莫熄”、“明日放假”、“布特拉再也”、“安华首相”等口号。安华只是望着群众微笑,仿佛在享受着这份迟来的“回归”。

他 甚至带领群众和民联领袖高唱爱国歌曲,大家大拍手掌,个个领袖都眉开眼笑。这些民联领袖包括民主行动党中央政策局主席林吉祥、回教党副主席胡桑慕沙 (Husham Musa)、中委朱基菲里阿末(Dzulkefley Ahmad)、总财政哈达南立(Hatta Ramli)、人民公正党副主席阿兹敏阿里(Azmin Ali)、总财政梁自坚、全国宣传主任蔡添强、研究小组主任赛夫丁(Saifudin Nasution)、青年团团长山苏(Shamsul Iskandar)等。

槟州首席部林冠英在致词时也表示,安华当选证明了人民要安华;安华的胜利并非一个人的胜利,而是全体人民的胜利。

他也说补选成绩也证明了人民弃恶扬善(Amar mahruf yahi mungkar),并以阿拉伯文说出“弃恶扬善”意思的句子。

较后林冠英在记者会上指出,安华的辉煌胜利显示,3月8日的政治海啸持续呼啸,他们将持续展开自3月8日起就开创的改变马来西亚议程。此外,国阵特别是巫统以种族及极端的课题煽动选民的情绪,可也没法凑效,可能说明我国已进入选民摒弃种族政治的新时代。

希望在周四回返国会

顺利当选峇东埔国会议员的安华在记者会上指出,他希望能在周四(后日)进入国会,可是此事还需与议长商议。他指出,国会没有理由延后他进入国会的时间,因为本周五国会就开始辩论国家预算案了。

民主行动党中央政策局主席林吉祥表示,25年前森美兰州一个国席补选在星期六结束之后,当选者就即刻在星期一宣誓就任。这名议员在少于36小时内就可宣誓就任,因此他不解为何安华不可在明日或最迟星期四宣誓。

林吉祥重申,民联各党已赞同推选安华为国会在野党领袖,民联明日将向议长呈上推荐信。他希望安华可在星期四宣誓就任,以便安华可以在国会辩论2009年财政预算案时,与首相面对面交锋。

问道辉煌的胜利会否令准备跳槽的议员信心大增,安华交由胡桑回应。胡桑没有直接回应,只说他们为成绩感到非常骄傲,这个成绩传达了要求基本改变的讯息,他们将持续推动人民想要达至的团结和经济改革。

“回教党为此成绩感到如此骄傲。人民明确地否决了种族政治、诋毁人的政治和被政治化的媒体。”

安华说,早在正式成绩尚未揭晓时,来自阿拉伯、土耳其、安达卢西亚的朋友皆纷纷向他道贺及为他感到开心。连续三周在峇东埔竞选的安华将在明日回返吉隆坡,无论如何,问道他明日将有何行动时,他说明日他只想好好地睡一个觉。

修改後黄朱强提霓疑 烟草法案无法二读

《星洲日报》印刷版

(吉隆坡25日讯)原订于今日提呈国会二读的《洋麻及烟草局法案》,因修改后遭到旺沙马朱区国会议员黄朱强的质疑,导致无法在下议院进行二读辩论种植及原产业部长拿督陈华贵于今日约下午5时,在国会提呈上述法案,但黄朱强以修改后的法案,与大马所签署的世界卫生组织“全球烟草控制架构公约”(FCTC)互相矛盾’而提出质疑。

他说,法案中第12条文阐明,不能对厂商的任何“疏忽”和“违反”采取任何行动或在法庭提出控诉;不过,政府在修改法案后把“疏忽”和“违反”两个字删除掉,仿佛有偏袒厂商之嫌。

由于黄朱强坚持看法,不愿接受陈华贵的解释,两人互相对峙了近半小时,直到休会时间,议长丹斯里班迪卡只好宣布展延明日继续讨论。

DNA Bill tabled for second reading

news from Malaysiakini

Syed Jaymal Zahiid | Aug 26, 08 1:35pm

Despite protest from the opposition claiming that the DNA bill, tabled for its first reading last week, was politically motivated, it is currently being read for a second time, allowing it to be debated today.
MCPX

syed hamid albar putrajaya pc 310708 02However, the bill was not supposed to be tabled for a second reading until the Universities and University Colleges Act (UUCA) bill is tabled for second reading on a date yet to be fixed.

Last week, Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar insisted that the long-overdue bill had to be tabled at the ongoing Parliament sitting to help the police solve crimes.

He said the bill was all encompassing for cases under the Penal Code and anyone arrested or charged under the code would be subjected to DNA testing.

Besides the provision of mandatory DNA testing for suspects, the bill will also allow the setting up of a national DNA database, forensic DNA analysis and the use of DNA profiles.

The opposition, however, had a different take, claiming that the government was pushing through the bill to bolster the sodomy charge against Pakatan de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim.

anwar ibrahim ceramah in tok kandu permatang pauh by election 220808 06Anwar has refused to give the police a DNA swab in their probe into the sodomy claim made by a former aide, fearing they might tamper with the sample to implicate him.

The opposition leader was charged with sodomy early this month and his case will be up for mention on Sept 10. He faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.

Anwar is currently contesting in the Permatang Pauh by-election. Should he win, he would make a comeback to the August House after a 10-year absence.



10 major issues


At the same time the bill was being tabled, the Bar Council warned that if the bill is passed, the country would turn into a ‘full fledged police state’.

Bar Council human rights committee president Edmund Bon told a press conference at the Parliament lobby that the bill appears to have been ‘rushed through’ for debate.

Bon alongside three other Bar Council members were at Parliament to brief opposition MPs on the grave repercussions should the DNA bill be passed.

A memorandum on the issue was also handed over to Rasah DAP MP Anthony Loke Siew Fook and his fellow party MP from Kuching Chong Chieng Jen.

edmund bon 00Speaking on the bill further, Bon alleged that there were several dubious clauses in the bill that would infringe human rights should the bill be passed into law.

He said there are 10 major issues deemed to be of extreme contentiousness and has been raised in the memorandum. These were:

1. There are no safeguards in relation to the storage and testing of DNA samples and for DNA profiles as well as how they are to be handled. No regulations were prescribed.

2. No provision for the accused to do his or her own independent DNA test which means that the accused have no way of testing the authenticity of the DNA sample claimed to be his or hers.

3. Categories of persons from whom samples may be taken from are to arbitrary and wide meaning that regardless of whether or not one is being investigated for an offence, DNA sample can be extracted from them.

4.Criteria and power safeguards are lacking in relation to suspected and convicted persons rendering it susceptible to manipulation

5. Privacy rights is illusory and those who refuse to provide samples will be subject to punishment and criminalisation

6. The bill would mean that those who have not been charged or convicted prior to the passing of the bill would be affected by it

7. Destruction of samples should not only be permissive but mandatory after a certain period of time as this provision will leave the head of the DNA databank discretionary powers to do anything with it.

8. Clause 18 of the bill gives no assurance that the extracted DNA sample is not to be used and stored somewhere else after it has been used for a particular case.

9. Clause 24 of the bill states that the extracted samples are conclusive evidence which means that the court and the accused have no authority to question the process of the DNA profiling.

10. Without proper DNA data protection laws, the power to export DNA samples to foreign law agencies should be curtailed all together.

No consultation

Bon said the bill must not be rushed for debate as it has not gone through the proper consultation process.

“I am shocked that the necessary stakeholders like the Bar Council and other civil society groups were not consulted first before it is tabled for debate,” he added.

He also said the existing DNA law has not shown any progress towards curtailing crime hence providing no justification for the introduction of a new DNA bill, which he considered to be “draconian.”

Meanwhile, Loke claimed that the BN-led government had ulterior motives to rush the bill.

“Why are they rushing? It was supposed to be debated after the UUCA bill. We are upset and shocked by this need to rush the bill for debate when it was just tabled last week,” he said.

DNA法案“偷跑”进入二读 律师公会抨大马像警察国

当今大马》转载

李伟伦 | 8月26日 下午1点32分
虽然遭到在野党和公民团体的群起围攻,不过内政部长赛哈密今天趁着峇东埔补选投票日,在国会下议院提呈《脱氧核糖核酸法案》二读。一旦该法案通过,警方将可强制所有刑事案嫌犯提供脱氧核糖核酸(DNA)样本。

赛哈密是在今天中午12点左右,向国会下议院提呈有关二读法案。然而,根据国会的安排,该二读法案本来是安排在《大专法令修正案》之后。《脱氧核糖核酸法案》“偷跑”提早辩论,马上引起了在野党议员的反对。

律师公会呈备忘录抗议

除了行动党华都牙也区国会议员冯宝君在议会厅内提出反对外,大马律师公会今天也向行动党国会议员提呈一份备忘录,要求该党正视《脱氧核糖核酸法案》所带来的连锁恶性影响。

律师公会人权委员会主席云大舜指出,一旦该法案通过后,警方可在无需获得法庭批准下,强制要求所有刑事案嫌犯提供脱氧核糖核酸样本,此举将让大马走向更极端的“警察国”。

“该法案允许执法单位索取脱氧核糖核酸样本的对象太过广,只要他们怀疑某人犯了刑事罪,就可在调查该案的过程中,免除向法庭申请的程序,直接索取那人的脱氧核糖核酸样本。”

DNA资料库独立性存疑

他也表示,通过该法案后,政府还会成立一个脱氧核糖核酸样本资料库,而该资料库的主管将由内政部长从警员中遴选,令其独立性备受质疑。

“该法案将允许执法单位收集、处理和收藏每个人的高度机密资料。在成立资料保密法令前,政府不能通过《脱氧核糖核酸法案》,否则将侵犯私隐和人权。”

他也质疑,在成立了脱氧核糖核酸样本资料库后,政府是否有能力确保该资料库的资料不会外泄。

“目前公众对我国执法单位的信心一片低靡,总检察署经常被批评,警方和反贪污局的形象恶劣,倡议已久的独立警察投诉与行为不检委员会(IPCMC)也无法成立,此法案的出现不是时候。”

他对内政部在没质询任何专业人士和公众意见下,就仓促提呈有关法案的做法,感到伤心和遗憾。

赶在肛交案前通过法案?

另一方面,代表行动党接领备忘录的森美兰州拉沙区(Rasah)国会议员陆兆福表示,该法案才日前甫通过一读,却能赶在《大专法令修正案》前进入二读阶段,整个安排明显具有政治议程。

“我相信他们是要赶在29日提呈财政预算案之前,三读通过《脱氧核糖核酸法案》,以在(公正党实权领袖)安华的肛交案开审前,强制抽取其脱氧核糖核酸样本。”

根据国会行程安排,国会将在本月29日的财政预算案提呈日后,一直休会至10月12日才重开,而安华的肛交案将在9月中旬过堂。

陆兆福说,若国会赶在这几天,在没有经过足够辩论的情况下,就仓促通过《脱氧核糖核酸法案》,肯定将带来极大的影响。

“国会应该成立一个特别委员会,来研究有关法案,这样才能取信于民。”

我在今天中午在《佳礼论坛》设下了第一个民意交流与收集空间。链接在下面:
佳礼中文论坛柔佛区版块
可是由于版主「怀疑」我的身份,因此在一个多小时后被封杀了。版主的这个动作可以理解,毕竟人民代议士都不来这一套。希望在和佳礼论坛的版主短讯交流后能够把这个空间继续开放给柔佛州广大人民,作为收集和反应民意的一项努力。

我会再较后陆续注册其他论坛,以让这个网络虚拟世界成为一个重要的民主工具。马来文及英文部分也将会在安排人手后陆续启用。

教育部的应答毫无诚意

这是今天我所获得的答复,我在国会中质询了关于国内坠学人数以及相关的措施事项。

在该部的答复中,可以见到政府一项对教育的敷衍态度。我在咨询中询问的学生人数也未被答复,取而代之的是秣陵两可的:
根据数据,估计有9%的学生在《小六检定考试》㈠后坠学,而共有4%的学生在《初中成绩评估考试》㈡后离开政府学校。

这是什么答案?百分之九是指三年内坠学人数的总和吗?还是每年的平均值?这种完全藐视质询内容而胡乱答复的情形意味政府不断的在掩盖教育系统的失败,同时对于这个牵涉每个人民的事,政府并没有显示出它要改革教育的意愿。

我会在接下来继续跟进这件事,以妥善监督和给予选民关于教育部的措施,以及如何善用政府所提供的援助,以利益峇吉里区选民。

SOALAN
Y.B. TUAN ER TECK HWA [BAKRI] minta MENTERI PENDIDIKAN bahawa berapakah bilangan pelajar yang tidak meneruskan sekolah selepas UPSR dan PMR ? Apakah langkah-langkah telah diambil oleh kerajaan untuk menolong golongan pemuda-pemudi tersebut sejak 2006/2007/2008.

JAWAPAN

Tuan Yang Di Pertua,
Kementerian Pelajaran Malaysia (KPM) memang prihatin tentang masalah keciciran murid di negara ini. Walau bagaimanapun, tldak semua murid tercicir daripada mengikuti persekrolahan kerana sebahagian besar murid ini sebenarnya meneruskan pelajaran di sekolah-sekolah bukan di bawah KPM seperti sekolah-sokolah swasta, sekolah agama rakyat, Sekolah Menengah Persendirian Cina, sekolah antarabangsa dan belajar di sekolah-sekolah yang tidak berdaftar seperti madrasah. Sebilangan kecil pula mengikuti home schooling atau mengikut keluarga berhijrah ke luar negara. Namun demikian, terdapat juga murid-murid yang terus meninggalkan dunia pendidikan kerana tidak berminat terhadap pelajaran, masalah kesihatan dan juga memasuki alam pekerjaan.

Sungguhpun begitu, KPM terus berusaha untuk mengurangkan kadar keciciran pada semua peringkat pendidikan dan berusaha mengenal pasti jumlah sebenar keciciran daripada sistem pendidikan negara. Berdasarkan statistik, dianggarkan sekitar 9% murid tidak meneruskan persekolahan selepas JPSR dan 4% murid tidak meneruskan persekolahan selepas PMR di sekolah-sekolah kerajaan.

Sehubungan itu, KPM telah mengambil beberapa langkah bagi meningkatkan kadar penyertaan murid dan seterusnya mengurangkan kadar keciciran. Antaranya termasuk menambah baik kemudahan asas, memperbanyakkan program motivasi, meningkatkan kesedaran ibu bapa, mewujud dan memperluas program-program bantuan seperti menyediakan Biasiswa Kecil Persekutuan, Rancangan Makanan Tambahan, Skim Baucar Tuisyen dan Kumpulan Wang Amanah Pelajar Miskin (KWAPM), KPM juga melaksanakan program pemulihan khas yang dikendalikan oleh guru pemulihan khas di sekolah rendah serta memperkenalkan Dasar Pendidikan Wajib pada tahun 2003 yang diteruskan dalam RMKe-9. Selain itu juga, KPM telah menyediakan kemudahan asrama di sekolah-sekolah terpilih dalam usaha untuk mengatasi keciciran. KPM berkeyakinan langkah-langkah tersebut akan dapat mengatasi masalah keciciran di kalangan murid.

Tuan Yang Di Pertua,

Kementerian Sumber Manusia (KSM) tidak mempunyai maklumat mengikut pecahan kaum.

Bagi mengurangkan kadar pengangguran dan membantu penganggur mendapatkan pekerjaan secepat mungkin, KSM telah melaksanakan pelbagai strategi untuk membantu golongan penganggur seperti berikut:

- KSM telah menyediakan kemudahan pekerjaan secara on-line mlalui portal JobsMalaysia bagi menarik lebih ramai pencari kerja untuk mendafiar dengan sistem tersebut, di mana pencari kerja boleh dipadankan dengan kekosongan jawatan yang ditawarkan oleh syarikat-syarikat yang berdafiar dalam sistem tersebut;

- Memperbanyakkan program Karnival Pekerjaan (Job Fair) termasuk di IPTA dan IPTS yang dianjurkan oleh Jabatan Tenaga Kerja dari semasa ke semasa bagi membantu menemukan pencari kerja dan majikan.

- Mengadakan ceramah dan kaunseling kerjaya kepada pencari kerja bagi memberi pendedahan tentang kehendak pasaran pekerjaan semasa di samping panduan bagaimana menghadapi temu duga;

- Kerajaan juga telah melaksanakan Skim Perantisan sejak 1996 bagi melahirkan tenaga kerja yang mempunyai pelbagai kemahiran yang diperlukan oleh majikan atau industri sekati gus mengurangkan pengangguran dalam negara. Kaedah latihan skim ini adalah berdasarkan off the job di premis penyedia latihan dan diikuti dengan latihan on the job di premis majikan;

- Mengadakan kerjasama dan dialog dari semasa ke semasa dengan pihak industri dan institusi pengajian/latihan bagi menentukan keperluan sebenar tenaga kerja di sektor perindustrian;

黄朱强:任烟草公司主席 人权委会主席应辞职

【中国报吉隆坡18日讯】旺沙玛朱区国会议员黄朱强促请人权委员会主席丹斯里阿布达立,辞去人委会主席职,因对方也是一家烟草公司主席,有涉及利益冲突。

他说,人委会是保护大众权利组织,可是阿布达立出任烟草公司主席,是为烟草公司着想,已不适宜出任人委会主席职。

他也质疑,为何政府推动反吸烟,可在这项法案条文中,政府还为业者提供财务拨款进行研究。

另一方面要求政府大幅度调高香烟售价,同时在禁售卖香烟场所展示香烟。

他说,根据联合国调查显示,高昂的售价有阻年轻人染上烟瘾。

他今日参与辩论2008年洋麻与烟草局法案二读时,作出上述建议。

他呼吁,政府拒绝让香烟业者继续售卖小包装的香烟,因一旦只售卖大包装价格高的香烟,年轻一代将因经济能力而不会去尝试抽烟。

陈华贵:修改2008年国家洋麻与烟草局法案不会边沿化烟草业

陈华贵:修改2008年国家洋麻与烟草局法案不会边沿化烟草业

(吉隆坡18日马新社讯)种植与原产部长拿督陈华贵说,修改2008年国家洋麻与烟草局法案不会因此造成国家的烟草业被边沿化。

他说,修改这个法令旨在制定一个更有效率的法令来取代1973年国家烟草局法令。

他说:“我们没有消灭这个(烟草)工业,而可能造成吉兰丹烟农完全没有收入的意图。”

他说:“我们所做的是希望通过修改这个法令,让我们能够好好控制这个工业,以便香烟制造厂也能够根据好的健康方式制造香烟。”

他是今日在国会为该法案作总结时这么说。

他也否认修改上述法令将鼓励更多人吸烟。

他说:“我们希望这个工业更有效率及具备更高的水准,而不是任由业者使用任何他们要的东西制造香烟,人民将因为购买不符合标准的香烟而成为受害者。”

耗逾2億提升麻坡外環公路‧余德華質疑工程素質

星洲日报 25-07-08

(柔佛‧麻坡)峇吉里區國會議員余德華質疑總耗資逾2億8000萬令吉的麻坡外環公路的工程素質。

週四(24日)上午,余德華在麻坡行動黨服務中心召開新聞發布會時披露,他在本月初於國會向公共工程部長拿督莫哈末晉詢問有關提升麻坡外環公路工程的問題,包括欠缺交通燈、路面情況崎嶇不平、維修工程竣工時間等問題。

他也向部長反映上述問題已嚴重威脅公路使用者的安全,令市民質疑工程的素質。
他說,麻坡外環公路是項耗巨額的工程,但公路卻頻頻出現各種問題,不但路面容易受損,還缺少里數指示牌與路燈等設施,造成公路使用者的不便。

公路頻頻出現問題
他說,工程部長回覆他時說,承包商將在8月杪完成道路提升工程,但是基於撥款不足,該部無法實施提升交通燈的工程,因此,工程部將重新檢討工程的必要性,並在下個大馬計劃下爭取撥款。

他也質疑,外環公路工程已獲得額外附加撥款至2億8652萬3318令吉,但部長卻仍以撥款不足來回應這項民生課題。

此外,他也提呈了多項關於麻坡及峇吉里區的民生問題,包括麻坡法蒂瑪專科醫院嚴缺專科醫生等問題。

他說,針對麻坡醫院這項問題,衛生部長拿督廖中萊已經答應將盡量派遣專科醫生到麻坡醫院服務,而且衛生部已加緊訓練專科人才,以提升地方醫院的素質。

他披露,他將在下季的國會會議上,提呈另外的15道問題,包括麻坡與柔州單親媽媽、智障兒童與問題少年等社會問題。
