纳吉的最新宣布重炒了上一届未兑现的竞选承诺冷饭,证实巫统国阵此举是把槟州人民当笨蛋。

看守首相纳吉在上周四来槟时,宣布若国阵拿下槟州,便会废除摩托骑士的槟城大桥过路费,以及在槟州兴建6万5000间可负担房屋。 当纳吉向槟州人民端出这么一个回收过,而且还是没有兑现的冷饭竞选诺言时,这明确显示了巫统国阵在把槟州子民当笨蛋耍。 首先,摩托骑士免大桥过路费的宣言,其实早在2013年便出现在槟国阵的竞选宣言里。 (Source: https://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2013/04/18/ge13-penang-bn-launches-manifesto-aimed-at-making-state-a-liveable-worldclass-city/) 就算国阵当时并没赢下槟州,但依然拿下了联邦政府,而槟城大桥过路费便是属于联邦政府权限管辖。但在过去5年,国阵政府却没有履行自己的承诺,为槟州摩托骑士废除大桥过路费。 希盟政府则恰好相反,虽然州政府对收费站没有权限,但依然盖了峇眼29路,作为摩托骑士避开双溪育收费站的替代道路。 第二,国阵虽然答应的6万5000间可负担房屋,但他们却无法兑现在2013年答应,在亚依淡及阿逸布爹兴建的9999间可负担房屋。他们不仅没有如预期的盖好,联邦政府甚至不曾在槟州完成任何一间一马人民房屋(PR1MA)计划。 相反,州政府则是盖了2万5555间可负担房屋,目前兴建的则有1万9828间,以及在规划中的2万9978间。 在过去5年,槟州国阵及掌权中央的巫统国阵政权长期忽视槟州,并一直以来把槟州人民当二等公民。如今更在选举时重炒冷饭承诺,试图吸引我们的选票。 十年毫无建树,如今却威胁槟城人在来届大选“要嘛选国阵,要嘛一无所有”。 我想,槟州及全马人民想对国阵说的话也非常清楚,那就是:没有国阵,大家都可以活得很好。 行动党大山脚国会议席候选人沈志强

Bukit Mertajam will lead the GE14 battle in Penang

Five years ago, on 19 April 2013, I was named as the DAP candidate for Bukit Mertajam in the 13th General Election. I accepted the responsibility with much trembling and fear: On one hand I was proud to be able to stand in the frontline especially to represent my “kampung”, Bukit Mertajam, in the battle… Continue reading Bukit Mertajam will lead the GE14 battle in Penang

火箭在我心,公正为我旗

2007年的时候,我决定加入政党并为社会“做些事情”。 那问题是”要做什么”? 我当时没有概念,不过对于那时25岁的我来说,是时候尽我的本份。 所以我便前往一间位于槟城的政党总部。作为一个上班族,我只能在星期六早上前往。结果被办公室里的员工告知下周再来,因为他们周末没上班。这就是为什么,我最终没有成为

Today is finally the last day of Parliament

Today is finally THE last day of Parliament for this term. Because we do not practice a fixed-term, and the power to dissolve Parliament is solely in the hands of the Prime Minister, we have been kept guessing when will be the dissolution in the past 18 months. So I know, many MPs including me… Continue reading Today is finally the last day of Parliament

A strange week in Parliament

When elections near, strange things happen. But how strange was last week? We had a ghost come to Parliament… but I am getting ahead of myself. Let me begin with Monday, March 26. The week opened with three DAP lawmakers, Ngeh Koo Ham (Beruas), Nga Kor Ming (Taiping), and V Sivakumar (Batu Gajah), being suspended… Continue reading A strange week in Parliament
