Guan Eng’s Open Letter To The Star – YM Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng – Sunday, 19 February 2012 15:58

Datuk Seri Wong Chun Wai,
Executive Editor / Group Chief Editor
(Pengarah Eksekutif / Ketua Pengarang Kumpulan)
The Star,
By email,

Dato Seri Wong,

FULL RETRACTION AND APOLOGY

C.P. Scott’s famous dictum of “Comment is free, but facts are sacred’ bears reminder in The Star’s coverage of the Mandarin debate yesterday between MCA President Datuk Seri Dr Chua and myself.

As The Star is owned by MCA, I respect the right of The Star to present a partisan slant and biased report of the proceedings. However I can neither condone nor accept when the Star invents quotes that I never said.

Under the article “What they said” in page 6 of the Star today, I was reported to have said during the debate on “Is The 2-party system becoming a 2-race system?”

“We do not agree the Prime Minister must always be Malay because we want the people to decide.”

This quote attributed to me is false and untrue because no reference whatsoever was ever made by me on this issue during the debate. As this debate was conducted in Mandarin, I would prefer to believe that this was a simple mistake in comprehension by an English newspaper, notwithstanding the Star being owned by MCA.

I would therefore request that the Star publishes a full retraction and apology for the error in a prominent section of your edition tomorrow at the same Page 6.

Yours faithfully,

LIM GUAN ENG
PENANG CHIEF MINISTER

You’re wasting time and the CM’s mandate the people gave you again Guan Eng. End the apartheid and stop arguing with everyone. We don’t need this kind of ‘leader’ who does not dare moot or implement a one-man one-vote system at 66.6% to allow the people to choose their own Chief Minister. Arguing with the media makes your ‘leadership’ a waste of time. We want an end to APARTHEID, not this nonsense. As CM, you should be filing lawsuits against any racists preventing the end of APARTHEID in laws or Constitution, contacting the UN, asking leaders of other countries like India and China and USA to condemn APARTHEID policy. Instead you argue with a local newspaper targeting a Chinese . . . how clever can you get? The most racist Malays are probably laughing themselves to death. Maybe thats a new strategy? To lull the racist and corrupt into getting so complacent that when any minority attacks their own race the racists will find it so funny they die of laughter? Then by all  means LGE needs to attack more news papers instead of liasing with non-racist world leaders to enforce UNHCR Article 1.

REAL smart, but when a nepotist rises to the post of Chief Minister by direct placement rather than a people’s vote, what else can we expect? Meanwhile MCA is still a lapdog for not doing the above suggested as well and tacitly approving APARTHEID for 50+ years. Make a stand on :

1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy.
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution. . . . amongst other things.

;or both MCA and DAP are worth nothing to the Chinese community with term limitless nepotists not much more than a Samy Vellu who at least has already left though MIC (also Gerekan and PPP) is equally lapdog for not making a stand on the above 3 items. What a wasted mandate DAP has been given by the closed voteless installed nepotist parachute Penang CMship. Arguing with a local newspaper is for bored kids and semi-educated retirees or troublemakers out to score points with anyone currently in power . . .

Shouldering People’s Trust Drives BN’s Struggle – Monday, 20 February 2012 00:15

KUALA KANGSAR — The Barisan Nasional’s (BN) struggle for power is not for the sake of power but rather to shoulder the trust of the people, said Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin.

He said what was important to the BN was to ensure sustainable development for the well-being of the people.

“The political power is not the end of the affair. What matter most to us is to develop the country more effectively unlike the opposition whose aim is to gain political power for the sake of capturing Putrajaya,” he said when closing the Perak Umno Convention here on Sunday.

Muhyiddin, who is also Umno deputy president, said for the people of Perak, there was a lesson to be learned after a bitter experience of living under the opposition’s rule for 11 months after the 2008 general election.

Hence, Umno members must embrace its theme “united, loyal and to serve” to ensure that the people would return the mandate to the BN to enable it to maintain a firm grip on the reins of government.

“BN leaders must be aware of a strong challenge posed by the opposition and the 13th general elections will determine the country’s political landscape in future,” he said.

As the next general election is crucial in determining whether the BN will continue to hold onto power, he said, the BN had to be wary of the opposition’s plan to seize power by forming a cohesive force among component parties in the next general election.

“We don’t have much time left. If we want to see victory on our side, we must not stop working and contributing to the people,” he said, adding that BN component parties must resolve internal problems quickly.

On the convention, he hoped it would give space and opportunities to Umno members to voice their opinions on how the BN and Umno could return to power with a thumping majority.

Najib Says Upholds Islamic Faith In Respecting Other Religions – Monday, 20 February 2012 00:02

KUALA LUMPUR — Najib Tun Razak said his every action at religious celebrations of non-Muslims in the country is in accordance with the permissible tenets of Islam.

The prime minister said he emulated the example set by Prophet Muhammad in showing respect for other religions without any breach of the Islamic faith.

“I uphold my faith. I also uphold my role as a Muslim leader. We must follow the ways of the Prophet in respecting the religions of other people without failing in terms of our own faith,” he said when closing the 2012 National Assembly of Muslim Scholars, Intellectuals and Virtual Writers at the Putra World Trade Centre, here on Sunday.

Najib said that in this way, Muslims and Islam would gain respect and the Muslim leadership would bring blessings to not only Muslims but also all the people in the country.

Touching on the statement by Perak Mufti Dr Harussani Zakaria on his (Najib’s) presence at the Thaipusam celebration at Batu Caves recently, Najib said he was relieved when the former said that his actions had not contravened Islamic laws and that this was also confirmed by the National Fatwa (Edict) Council.

“I explained to him (Dr Harussani) why I was there and where I was at that time,” he said, adding that he did not enter the (temple) proper or participate in the religious ceremony and that he spoke on the socio-economic issue of Indians of the Hindu faith.
