Since Merdeka, two million Malaysians have migrated overseas because they do not see a future for themselves and for Malaysia. It is time that we don't live in our past that is filled with hatred and fear. We should look to the future filled with hope and harmony between all Malaysians.

 To put the past behind us, we must stop the politics of race and religion.
 To put the past behind us, we must end corruption.
 To put the past behind us, we must abolish the suppression, oppression, repression of our basic human rights and freedoms.
 To put the past behind us, we must demand good governance and performance from our ministers.

To put the past behind us, we must stop the politics of race and religion.

Mengapakah kita terperangkap dalam permainan perkauman Barisan Nasional yang cuba menakutan orang Melayu bahawa mereka akan kehilangan hak mereka dan jawatan Perdana Menteri. Selagi kita mendukung Perlembagaan Persekutuan, hak Melayu dan bumiputera terjamin bersama-sama dengan hak sahih orang bukan Melayu. Sekiranya Pakatan Rakyat menang, calon yang paling layak akan menjadi Perdana Menteri, iaitu Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim. Jangan kita biarkan Barisan Nasional terus memperalatkan isu perkauman anti-bukan-Melayu hanya untuk mengekalkan kuasa. Adakah ini menguntungkan rakyat apabila BN tak mahu jawab mana pergi RM52 bilion saham yang sepatutnya diberikan kepada orang Melayu dan bumiputera miskin. Kita mesti faham bukan semua orang Cina yang kaya. Sama juga, bukan semua orang Melayu yang miskin. Ada ramai orang Melayu yang kaya macam Tan Sri Syed Mohktar dan Pengerusi Eksekutif SYABAS Tan Sri Rozali Ismail. Mengapa minta rakyat Malaysia berbangsa Cina balik China tetapi tak tanya sama menteri Cina yang pernah pohon PR Australia.

Barisan Nasional akan menggunakan perkauman untuk menakutkan kita kerana mereka sudah tiada isu lagi. Jangan kita menakutkan diri sendiri dan terus menyokong sebuah kerajaan yg bersifat kroni & rasuah. Hanya dengan perubahan kepada ketuanan rakyat dan bukan ketuanan UMNO barulah kita boleh bebaskan diri daripada rasuah dan hidup bermaruah.

To attain peace Malaysians must stand united and reject those who wish to divide us by preaching racial and religious hatred. If we want to benefit from equal opportunities and realize our human potential we must stop extremists from continually degrading others as inferiors so as to uplift ourselves. Why should Allah not be allowed to be used in the Bible when it is used in the Middle East?

We can only achieve harmony together. Despite our differences and diversity, Malaysians can make our common aspirations of freedom, justice, democracy and truth come true if we remember key values.

That it is not who we are that is important, but what we are that is important; not the colour of our skin that is important but the content of our character; and not our past ancestry that is important but how we connect with the present and with each other to face the future.

We can only be prosperous together. The time has come to focus on the economy, in employment, education and business opportunities as the conditions for prosperity. We must build human talent and be performance-based.

For those who say that PR do not know how to govern, the 4 PR states of Penang, Selangor, Kedah and Kelantan have proven our ability by beating the other 10 BN states by attracting RM25 billion in investments comprising 53% of Malaysia's total investments of RM47.2 billion in 2010. For the first time in history, Penang is now the new champion of investments in Malaysia, coming out top in 2010 with RM 12.2 billion.

To put the past behind us, we must end corruption.

Tentang rasuah berapa banyak wang lagi yg kita nak hilang. Seorang penternak lembu yang daripada muda sehingga tua tak boleh dapat pinjaman berjuta-juta ringgit. Tetapi seorang keluarga menteri sungguhpun tak ada pengalaman menternak seekor lembu pun boleh mendapat 250 juta ringgit. Tapi wang digunakan untuk membeli kondo pula. Bukan sahaja pemimpin-pemimpin kita jadi orang terkenal, tetapi lembu kita pun terkenal. Tengoklah skandal-skandal lembu & kondo. Sampai negara Singapura yg banyak kondominium pun nak belajar macam mana boleh menternak lembu dalam kondominium.

Mengapakah dalam skandal Forex Bank Negara pada tahun 90an apabila Malaysia rugi lebih 15 bilion ringgit orang yg bertanggungjawab tidak dihukum tetapi sekarang dilantik menjadi menteri dalam Pejabat Perdana Menteri?

Bilakah kita nak hentikan kerugian wang ini lagi? Adakah 100 billion tak cukup? Kita nak 12 billion lagi. Jangan lupa 1 ribu billion ringgit wang haram sudah mengalir keluar dari negara. Janganlah biarkan wang negara terus disia-siakan, kita mesti berani membuat perubahan yg boleh menjaminkan kehidupan anak-anak kita.

Barisan Nasional cannot reform to end corruption. Remember, if we do not end corruption, Malaysia dies. If we end corruption, BN dies. The choice is clear.

To put the past behind us, we must abolish the suppression, oppression, repression of our basic human rights and freedom.

How can we have a clean government when we do not have clean elections? Hanya pilihanraya bersih boleh memastikan sebuah kerajaan bersih. The next government should be decided by Malaysians and not by phantom voters or Bangladeshis or Myanmarese. Saya percaya kita mahu rakyat Malaysia dan bukan pengundi hantu atau rakyat asing yang menentukan siapa menang kalah dalam pilihanraya umum ke-13.

We do not want our children to live in fear of oppressive laws as we have lived. A Pakatan Rakyat government will abolish the UUCA, the Sedition Act and the Printing Presses and Publications Act and restore local government elections.

Kita tidak boleh menerima penyalahgunaan kuasa dimana rakyat Malaysia boleh mati dalam tahanan.

When can we find justice for Teoh Beng Hock, Ahmad Sarbani and A Kugan? When will we have Freedom of Information & Freedom of Speech? When can we have justice that is not only done, but is seen to be done.

To put the past behind us, we demand good governance and performance from our ministers.

Malaysia can be an international and intelligent country. We must have digital intelligence with broadband connectivity. We must also have integrity intelligence, so ensure that only honest people are the decision-makers. We must have institutional intelligence under the rule of law. We demand good governance and performance from our ministers.

Has the Transport Ministry done its duty to run our airports and seaports well? Look at the Penang International Airport whose completion has been delayed more than 3 times. And the Penang Port is to be reduced to be a feeder port and privatized to a 3rd party at the expense of Penangites. Why is there no consultation with the people of Penang to restore the port to its former glory? Instead of looking after airports and ports, the Transport Ministry is more interested in vehicle registration numbers and wants to increase the maximum traffic fines to RM2,000.

Director-General of Tourism is wrongly charged of corruption but the Tourism Minister finds nothing wrong with spending RM1.8 million in doing up her Facebook page, when we all know that it can be done for free.

The Health Ministry wants to privatise healthcare when it should be a public good given as an affordable right to all Malaysians. Why allow the wastage of public funds and affect the quality and affordability of drugs when drugs are bought through a middleman at higher prices when it could be bought cheaper direct from the manufacturers, some of which are operating in Malaysia.

The Housing and Local Government Ministry opposes local government elections in Penang, denying our fundamental democratic right to elect our councillors and our mayors.

We believe that Malaysians deserve better. For the last 50 years, the wealth of the nation has been robbed. Let us protect the future of our children by ensuring we have a people-centric government that protects you instead of harming you, that rewards you instead of stealing from you, that respects you instead of abusing your rights. Let us clean up Malaysia to save our children's future.

We must put the past behind us where profits matters more than our health. Lynas concerns all of us because if Lynas is allowed to operate, Barisan Nasional will proceed with building two nuclear reactors. If we continue to put health above profits, what is the use of having all the money in the world if you cannot enjoy it healthily?

The next elections shall be fought on the economy. We refuse to allow BN to use race as the issue in the next elections. We need to increase the incomes of our poor or else they will fall victims to the Ah Longs. For example, Bank Negara's Annual Report 2010 revealed that Malaysia's household debt at the end of 2010 was RM581 billion or 76 per cent of GDP, thus giving us the dubious honour of having the second-highest level of household debt in Asia.

In addition, the Malaysian household debt service ratio stood at 47.8 per cent in 2010, meaning that nearly half of the average family's income goes to repaying debts. As a rule, banks would not lend money to those whose total servicing of loans exceeded one third of their income. In other words, we are spiralling into an indebted nation.

According to the New Economic Model documents, the bottom 40% of Malaysian households are living with a monthly average income of RM1,500 (and three-quarters of them are bumiputera) while 60% of the households (of four persons averagely) live with a less than RM3,000 income, which is near subsistence if one lives in the cities.

These are families living in fear. We will help them live with dignity and not in fear, by increasing their incomes and cutting down their costs, with a minimum wage, getting rid of monopolies, expanding internet connectivity and encouraging creativity, innovation and productivity.

South Korea is a very good example of a nation that chose democracy, performance and freedom of opportunity to become a developed country. With a population of 48 million, its GDP per capita of USD20,000 is more than double Malaysia’s. But in 1970, South Korea’s per capita GDP was only USD260 compared to Malaysia’s USD380 we used to regularly beat South Korea at football. And now our children are fans of K-pop culture and their football team are regulars at the World Cup.

Only when we free ourselves of fear of change, can we be free to prosper. BN cannot change. They need to be changed, for BN wants to rule by fear.

Thomas Jefferson has said "When the governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny".

The choice is yours, my friends. I urge you – Let us change so we can have liberty and live with dignity.

 放下过去,我们必须停止种族和宗教政治。
 放下过去,我们必须结束贪污腐败。
 放下过去,我们必须终结对基本人权及自由的压迫。
 放下过去,我们必须要求部长良好施政及表现


为什么我们受困在国阵的种族游戏当中?他们恐吓马来人说马来人将失去他们的权益及马来人首相。只要我们维护宪法,马来人及土著的权利与非马来人的权利都是同样受到保护。一旦民联执政,最有资格的候选人将会成为首相,他就是首相拿督斯里安华。 我们别再让国阵继续利用反非马来人的种族课题巩固他们的权力。当国阵不愿回答原本应该拨给贫穷马来人及土著的520亿令吉股权去了哪里?这能让全民受惠吗?我们必须明白,不是所有的华人都是富有的,不是所有的马来人都是贫穷的。很多马来人也很富有,好像丹斯里赛莫达及雪放水供控股公司首席执行员丹斯里罗查里。为什么要叫马来西亚的华人"回中国",但是从不质疑那样拥有澳洲永久居留权的华裔部长?






那些说民联不懂如何治理的人士,我要告诉你,民联四州(槟、雪、吉打、吉兰丹)已经证明我们打败了国阵其它10 个州属,我们在2010年吸引了250亿令吉外来投资额,占了马来西亚总外来投资472亿令吉的53%。历史上第一次,槟城所获投资额全马居冠,在2010年达122亿令吉。

 放下过去,我们必须结束贪污腐败。





 放下过去,我们必须终结对基本人权及自由的压迫。




我们还如何为赵明福、阿末沙巴尼和A 古甘讨回公道?我们什么时候才有资讯自由及言论自由?我们什么时候才可以伸张正义?

 放下过去,我们必须要求部长良好施政及表现

马来西亚可以成为一个国际和智能型国家。我们必须拥有宽频联接的数码智能。 我们必须拥有廉洁智能,确保诚实的人才是决策人。我们必须拥有法治的院校智能。我们必须要求部长良好施政及表现。








此外,我国的家庭债务偿债比率在2010年为47.8%, 意味着每个家庭平均有一半的收入是用来还债的。一般上,银行不会借钱给那些债务超过收入三分之一的人士。换句话说,我们正渐渐成为过度举债的国家。



南韩是一个很好的例子,他们选择民主、表现和机会自由,进而成为一个发达国家。他们拥有4800万人口,它的国民年均收入达2万美元,是马来西亚的两倍。但是,在1970年,韩国国民年均收入只有260美元,马来西亚为380美元, 我们经常在足球赛打败韩国。现在,我们的孩子是韩流文化的粉丝,他们的足球队也常见于世界杯足球赛。




Opening Speech at Debate 2.0 (en/cn)

Opening Speech by Lim Guan Eng at Debate 2.0 on 8 July 2012

CEO of ASLI Tan Sri Michael Yeoh, my learned opponent, ladies and gentlemen: Salam bersih kepada semua.

Kita berkumpul di sini untuk menentukan dasar parti manakah yang lebih boleh memberi manfaat kepada rakyat Malaysia. Seharusnya, satu perbahasan patut diadakan di antara Perdana Menteri, Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak, dan Ketua Pembangkang, Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim. Malangnya Perdana Menteri enggan berbahas dengan Anwar. Adakah Najib enggan berbahas dengan Anwar kerana beliau bimbang selepas perbahasan, rakyat akan membuat pernilaian bahawa Anwar lebih layak menjadi Perdana Menteri Malaysia?

In fact, MCA is not qualified to be here to discuss about policies because MCA does not decide, it is UMNO that decides. MCA claims to speak only for the Chinese, and yet only the Chinese in the Peninsula, and not the Chinese in Sabah and Sarawak. This is different from the DAP, that wants to speak for all Malaysians. DAP mahu bersuara untuk semua orang Malaysia: Melayu, Cina, India, Kadazan dan Iban, kerana kita semua rakyat Malaysia, bukan macam MCA, yang kononnya mahu mewakili orang Cina sahaja.

Mengapakah mesti kita terus dipecahbelahkan mengikut kaum dan agama? Inilah kejayaan terbesar UMNO. Mereka mahu kita takut satu sama lain supaya BN boleh terus merompak harta dan kekayaan Malaysia. Tengoklah skandal lembu dan kondo. Pak cik yang ternak lembu sepanjang masa tidak dapat pinjaman berjuta-juta ringgit, tapi keluarga menteri yang tak pernah ternak lembu boleh mendapat pinjaman 250 juta ringgit yang disalahgunakan untuk beli kondo pula. Jangan-jangan orang Singapura yang ada banyak kondo nak datang ke Malaysia belajar macam mana ternak lembu di kondo. Skandal PKFZ sebanyak 12.5 bilion ringgit telah melibatkan pemimpin tertinggi MCA tetapi ahli politik yang aktif tidak dibawa ke mahkamah. Semua skandal ini MCA tidak bersuara tetapi sokong buta sahaja. Kedudukan Malaysia telah jatuh dalam persepsi rasuah Transparency International daripada 37 dalam tahun 2003 kepada 60 tahun lepas (2011).

Kita harus bersatupadu sebagai anak Malaysia. Kalau kita terus dipecahbelahkan, hanya kroni-kroni dan orang-orang ataslah yang untung. Kalau kita bersatupadu, baru dapatlah kita semua menikmati hasil kejayaan ekonomi Malaysia.

Mengapakah hanya pemimpin Melayu yang boleh membela hak orang Melayu, hanya pemimpin Cina yang boleh membela hak orang Cina. Tibalah masanya untuk pemimpin-pemimpin membela hak semua rakyat Malaysia dan membantu satu sama lain.

For the last 50 years, we have been consumed by race and religion. For the next 50 years, let us be consumed by the task of improving the economic wellbeing and protecting the civil and political rights of our fellow Malaysians.

We have many problems in our country that need to be addressed. But the biggest problem of all is the problem of corruption that results in abuse of power, low wages and an ever-rising cost of living. BN has never spoken truthfully to the Malaysian people. Let us speak truthfully now. If we can unite as Malaysians and not allow BN & UMNO to divide us, and discuss our problems together, I am convinced that we will succeed in overcoming them.

DAP believes that a clean government can always perform better than a corrupt government. The DAP believes that a clean government requires open competitive tenders, full disclosure of contracts between the government and the private sector, freedom of information and the public declaration of the assets of ministers, prime ministers and chief ministers. Why is it that the Federal Government dare not follow the Penang Government in having public declarations of assets? Is it because BN leaders have too much property to hide?

Kejayaan sebuah kerajaan yang bersih terserlah di kerajaan-kerajaan negeri Pakatan Rakyat. Di Pulau Pinang, kita telah mencatatkan lebihan bajet setiap tahun walaupun perbelanjaan Kerajaan Negeri dinaikkan sebanyak 55%. Kita membuat jalan, longkang, rumah mampu milik dan taman hijau. Berbanding dengan hutang Kerajaan Persekutuan yang naik ke RM480 bilion pada 31 Mac 2012, beban hutang Negeri pula dikurangkan sebanyak 95% daripada RM630 juta kepada RM30 juta, yang merupakan lagi satu rekod dalam sejarah Malaysia. Ini membolehkan wang bantuan diberikan kepada warga emas, ibu-bapa dan pelajar-pelajar sekolah dan IPTA, ibutunggal dan OKU. Semua sekolah pelbagai aliran diberikan peruntukan setiap tahun, dan bukan lima tahun sekali atau lima puluh tahun sekali, seperti BR1M RM500, yang menimbulkan soalan macam mana seorang datuk MCA dari Pahang pun boleh menerima RM500 yang diberikan kepada keluarga susah. Pulau Pinang merupakan negeri pertama di Malaysia yang menghapuskan kemiskinan tegar dan kita akan menjadi negeri pertama yang menghapuskan kemiskinan sama sekali menjelang 2015. Pulau Pinang juga merupakan negeri pertama yang memberikan WiFi percuma kepada rakyat di tempat-tempat awam di Pulau Pinang.

Ada mereka yang telah mengatakan bahawa sekiranya Pakatan Rakyat melaksanakan tender terbuka, maka orang Melayu akan rugi. Tetapi di Pulau Pinang di bawah kerajaan Pakatan Rakyat, 70% daripada tender-tender terbuka telah dimenangi oleh kontraktor Melayu yang berkeupayaan. Ini membuktikan bahawa kontraktor Melayu memang berdaya saing. Sebenarnya, yang tidak berguna hanyalah kontraktor dan kroni UMNO.

The DAP believes that the policies of our party and Pakatan Rakyat represent the future for our children, whereas the policies of the MCA and BN represent the past. No longer can we accept the culture of corruption and cronyism. Let us take our rights back from the BN cronies by abolishing the N-S Highway tolls and removing subsidies to the independent power producers. No longer can we accept the abuse of power that has led to Malaysians dying in custody, as happened to Teoh Beng Hock, Ahmad Sarbani and A Kugan. We must set up the IPCMC (Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission) to stop such abuses and custodial deaths. No longer can we allow our womenfolk to walk the streets and park their cars in fear. We should put policemen on patrol instead of monitoring Pakatan Rakyat politicians. No longer can we accept a policy of putting profits before the people’s health. Let us close down the Lynas rare earth plant in Kuantan and stop the building of nuclear reactors proposed by BN.

No longer should Sabahans be strangers in their own land with illegal immigrants getting citizenship. Let us have a royal commission of enquiry to weed out these illegal citizens. No longer should Sabahans and Sarawakians be denied the right to their natural resources by being given royalties of only 5%. We must increase it to 20% as their rightful share. No longer should vernacular schools be marginalised. We have a right to adequate funding for mother-tongue education. No longer can we accept a slow broadband service, let us have proper broadband and free wifi in public places.

No longer can we accept the cynical manipulation and division of the people of Malaysia by race and religion when we should be united by common principles of justice, freedom and democracy. Let us ensure that a minority Malaysian such as Bersih co-chairman Dato’ Ambiga Sreenivasan is not hounded and persecuted because she is an Indian, a Hindu and a woman.

行动党相信我们和民联的政策代表孩子的未来,而马华、 国阵的政策已经走入历史。我们不再接受贪污和朋党的现象。让我们从国阵的朋党手中拿回我们的权益,废除南北大道收费站,取消供给独立发电厂的津贴。我们再也不能接受滥权导致马来西亚死于扣留期间,像赵明福、阿末沙巴尼及A古甘那样。我们必须成立独立警方投诉及行为不检委员会(IPCMC),以遏止这种滥权及扣留期间的死亡案件。我们再也不能让我们的女性带着恐惧走在街上、停车场。我们必须让警方参与治安巡逻,而不是利用他们来监视民联的政治人物。我们再也不能接受政府不理人民的健康死活,利字当先。让我们关闭关丹稀土厂,并阻止国阵兴建核电厂。
