Lawbreakers turned lawmakers.”Malaysia Boleh” or “Malaysia Bodoh”?

 Rot to the core! These were the MPK councillors who built their “palaces” without submitting plans, not paying assessment for years, built satay shops on government land, snatched and broke cameras of Guang Ming Daily’s reporter, sent gangsters to beat up DAP protesters…They were reappointed as MPK councillors yesterday despite of strong protest from HRH Sultan Selangor, rakyat in Selangor and the DAP.

Lawmakers turned Lawbreakers and now again sworn in as Lawmakers…Is this “Malaysia Boleh” or “Malaysia Bodoh”? Media statement by Ronnie Liu Tian Khiew, DAP CEC member and NGO Bureau Chief on Saturday, November 25, 2006 in Petaling Jaya 

We were very disappointed that except for “Raja Zakaria”, all the lawbreakers in the Klang Municipality (MPK) were sworn in as new councilors yesterday amidst public protest. The son and daughter in law of Zakaria were also sworn-in together with a long list of tainted politicians representing Umno, MIC and MCA . This is a reflection of arrogance of politics of the highest order on the part of Umno and Barisan Nasional parties like MIC and MCA under the Selangor Menteri Besar Khir Toyo. 

How could the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abduallah Ahmad Badawi  allows the Selangor MB to appoint this bunch of lawbreakers to continue as lawmakers? Are you admitting to the Malaysians that there were no more clean and upright candidates in Klang to fill up the vacancies? What kind of integrity, transparency and delivery system he was talking about all this while? Or is he too afraid to offend these “corrupt-to-the-core politicians” for fearing of losing support in the party?  A very bad precedence has been set in Klang now. When lawbreakers were allowed to become lawmakers and “leadership by example” fails so badly under the Umno administration in this country, would the Menteri Besar and Prime Minister still expect the ordinary citizens to follow the laws? 

DAP Selangor deputy chairman Khoo Chee Pock, state committee member Peter Tan and other DAP members went to the MPK yesterday to stage a protest against the swearing-in ceremony today. They told me that many ordinary folks in Klang are now extremely upset by the blatant act of political arrogance on the part of the BN Government. Instead of stepping down, the “Raja Zakaria” has openly said that he wants to stand again in Pelabuhan Kelang as the BN candidate. We are wondering why a person who had given a bad image to his Muslim brothers and sisters still has the cheek to stay on in politics. The voters in Pelabuhan Kelang would have an opportunity to teach him a lesson should that happen.  

Judging from what has taken place in Klang today, Malaysians should not be too surprise to see that these lawbreakers be elected by their respective party as candidates in the coming general elections to be held next year. Guang Ming Daily has a report…

巴生市議會

只有查氏被除名

(巴生訊)因多名市議員違法而三度展延宣誓的巴生市議會就職典禮,週五終於在萬眾矚目下舉行。備受爭議的違例市議員拿督馬芝利諾、查卡利亞的兒子再努里、媳婦羅斯琳達及另4名遭雪州大臣公開點名違例的市議員依然順利保職他們在雪州行政議員拿督拉曼巴列的見證下,舉起右手、對著象徵公信力的權杖讀出宣誓詞:我一定會以真誠及全面的態度,盡本份及能力為民服務。


這場就職儀式的完成,意味著在較早前鬧得熙熙攘攘的市議員濫權事件,對違例採訪記者動粗的市議員沒造成任何影響。只有查卡利亞一家三議員的優勢,稍微調動至一門二議員,被除名的是查卡利亞本身。

只有查氏被除名出席就職儀式的行動黨巴生公市支部主席陳彼得說,他對3名有問題的市議員仍可順利宣誓感到遺憾。他說,這些議員雖然事後有補救錯誤,但個人行為已不適合成為一名領袖。

行動黨雪州副主席邱志博則形容,再努里、宋奇才及馬芝利諾仍成為市議員,可說令人大跌眼鏡。尤其是馬芝利諾,粗爆對待媒體後沒有清楚交代事件,卻還能名正言順上任,對人民及媒體有欠公平。陳彼得表示,行動黨日後一定繼續監督市議員的行為操守,希望新屆市議員能全心全力為民服務。尚有6市議員空缺

宣誓儀式於早上9點準時開始,24名市議員中,尚有6個名額。包括市議會主席峇基爾在內,週五僅有19人宣誓就職,還有6個市議員的空缺有待填補。

峇基爾受詢時聲稱,6個市議員空缺中,巫統佔4個、馬華和國大黨各有1個席位,他們的宣誓日期交由州政府定奪。恐發生不愉快
市會全面戒備

負責監督市議會行政運作的雪州行政議員拿督拉曼巴列,週五也出現在儀式上。據市議會主席峇基爾在講詞中披露,後者到來主要是負責觀察的工作。由於巴生市議員的宣誓儀式引起全國關注,當初為免發生不愉快事件而全面戒備,市議會大廈外也有交警維持秩序,市議會執法人員也到場駐守,連新任巴生警區主任洛萬助理總監也到場瞭解情況。

此外,行動黨代表,即雪州副主席邱志博及巴生公市支部主席陳彼得也到來瞭解情況,惟他們並沒在會議上發問,而是在事後召開記者會發表談話。2006至2008年巴生市議員名單:
市議會主席:峇基爾
皇室代表:拿督史迪亞阿都干尼
巫統代表:拿督再益、諾麗查、拿督瑪茲利諾、沙瑪阿未、阿都羅夫、納沙魯丁、羅斯琳達、再努里
馬華代表:拿督鄭敬保、拿督宋奇才、許炎才、朱悅銘、顏悠廷、林福地
民政黨代表:莊福明
國大黨代表:阿歷斯迪卡拉惹、瑪廉 (光明日報‧2006/11/24
