把第三票还给人民

首相纳吉今日一口否决民联州属要求选委会执行地方议会选举的要求,尽管我不明白这明明应该是选委会主席的权限、应由选委会主席决定的事情到底关我们这位贵人事忙的首相什么屁事,几时轮得到他来“否决”这一项要求,但他那些似是而非的“否决”理由,真是不得不让人对他的智力程度产生疑问。

首相是这样说的:“我们认为,既然地方选举已在多年前被废除,那么就无需恢复。”还有这一句“我们认为,这将会在地方加剧政治角力。我们想要改善公共服务,但是恢复地方选举,焦点却将在于政治过程。”当然还有一句“联邦政府无意恢复地方选举,因为这无助于改善公共服务,不一定确保市议会将会提供更好的服务。”

总括而言,首相是说推行地方选举后,“不一定”会确保市议会提供更好的服务,而且恢复地方选举会使人们更着重于政治,而最后忽略了服务。别说纳吉从头到尾并没有举出任何实际的例子来佐证他所提出的“否决”理由,更何况,即便现今没有地方议会选举,难道我们的市议会就有好好的服务人民了吗?

市议会的差劲、散漫的服务一直让许多人诟病,但这还不是重点,更重要的是,市议会同样也有征收人民的钱,而且人民缴交给市议会的税务还不少,举个例子,雪州这个全马最富有的州属,其属下的八打灵再也市议会的收入,就比整个森美兰州的地方政府还要多;而吉隆坡市议会一年的财政支出更比我国一些州属还高;在这样的情形之下,为什么人民却没有任何对这些掌管如此大笔财富官员进行监督的权利呢?去年吉隆坡市议会竟然花费上千万于种植路边的花草,这样公然的舞弊行为,不正是因不需要对人民负责而衍生出来的吗?

而且不要忘了,地方政府除了拥有税收权(掌管大笔财富)之外,也拥立法权。根据《1976年地方政府法令》第72项和第102项,地方政府有权制定附属法律(Undang-Undang Kecil),涵盖范围包括公共卫生、商业执照、广告执照、管制社会秩序、管制禽畜及公园条例。若是民众不遵守这些地方政府制定的条例,地方政府则有权对违反条例者采取行动,或发出传票。换句话说,地方议会还身兼了立法及行政这两样巨大无比的权力,你能想象到竟然是完全不需要对人民负责的吗?

以上种种的问题,难道纳吉都没有看到吗?还是纳吉看到的只是朋党、官僚所获取的利益,而忘却了那些被浪费掉的全是人民辛辛苦苦挣来的血汗钱?我不知道。但我知道的是,要真正杜绝这些弊端,就只有“还政于民”!只有恢复地方议会选举,还给人民应得的第三票,让人民真正成为监督自己血汗钱的行使及使用,才是真正一劳永逸解决以上这些问题的最佳方案!

地方选举有利有弊,但对于小党如社会主义党等,有助于他们的生存和发展。

Anyway, i already republished the article as freemalaysiatoday had published it. You can read it in homepage liao!

During Pak Lah's time, those were the good old stories about personalities like Patrick Lim, also more famously known as Patrick Badawi, who was said to have direct access to Pak Lah due to close connection to the son and the son-in-law.

Now have a new Prime Minister, the son of Tun Razak, Datuk Seri Mohd Najib. Together with Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, our new PM lead by example, a capable leader who enjoys the pleasure of a harmonious family, flanked by a capable First Lady who is also shares the husband’s commitment to reform the government, buang yang keruh ambil yang jernih…


In the era of Najib, the market sees the emergence of new players, actually old players being given new lease of life. Douglas Cheng and Desmond Lim, both Datuk, were said to be enjoying the patronage of the First Lady so much, their arms now reach into the deepest pocket of government’s coffer.

Desmond Lim is no newbie in corporate world, famously linked to many stories about flying incumbent Transport Minister in his private jet to South Korea on Dec 2008 to check on baggage handling system, an overseas trip which was without the Cabinet’s approval. Of course, Desmond, knowing the game very well given his previous experience of working so closely with Patrick Lim, must now so expert in the game of pleasing top bosses in the government.

Desmond surely knows where to sew his seeds as he is now in best position to be awarded the baggage handling contract. In addition to that, the Minister has also agreed to award Desmond the purchase of 38 unit of EMU via Direct Nego.

Nonetheless, like the old saying, behind a successful man, there is always a woman. So easily we can imagine that behind a successful man like Najib, Kak Ros would be the loyal woman.

But who should take full credit of playing the person behind the woman behind the successful man? This question has a two-word answer – Cindy Lim.

Datin Cindy Lim. As the wife of Desmond, Cindy has a unique gift millions of Malaysian women don’t have – make best friend with the First Ladies. You name it and Cindy knows them by her smooth fingers, the late Kak Endon, Toh Puan Jeanne Abdullah and now, Kak RM.

Some lady has all the luck, so that the husband can get insanely rich from government contracts. Government’s NKRA should also mention Cindy’s persistent and consistent achievements.

But the biggest KPI score surely must go to Desmond, he was very focus in his effort and deliverables, i.e private jetting the Minister, Direct Nego-ing disregard of PM’s disapproval, landing government contracts almost at will.


With Cindy’s close association with Kak RM, Desmond was able to make the most of it and continue to enjoy the windfall, knowing full well that whenever someone in the government is trying to block him or his bid was not qualify enough, Cindy will quickly do the ground work using her friendship with Kak RM and get things through.

What become clearer is that Kak RM is becoming the Achilles Hill that might need urgent operation, just like the one in Transport Minister’s leg that was being operated.

Also, Kak RM might want to take notice on the circulating stories about how Douglas Cheng is fast becoming the blue-eye boy of Kak RM. Of course, what’s wrong with being the blue-eye boy anyway? Except that link between Douglas and his gambling business!

Is this going to be the footnote of the legacy of Najib being the PM of reform, a leader committed to serve all races and fighting to save BN, while his own BN (Bini Najib) is being associated with business tycoons who are slinging dirt all around the public administration and grabbing all the sweet apples in government coffer via illegitimate channels?
