Mahasiswa perlu diberi ruang untuk membukti kematangan: UMNO-BN jangan masuk campur

Posted: 01 Mar 2012 05:21 AM PST

Pro-M bantah UM perkenal sistem zon p'raya kampus
Kumpulan Pro-Mahasiswa (pro-M) Universiti Malaya (UM) membantah tindakan pentadbiran universiti memperkenalkan sistem zon bagi kerusi umum dalam pilihan raya kampus yang dijangka berlangsung akhir Mac depan.

Mereka mendakwa peraturan baru yang diumumkan kelmarin, bertujuan untuk "memecah dan mengurangkan" dominasi pelajar khususnya mahasiswa Akademi Pengajian Islam (API), walaupun mereka berpendapat semua mahasiswa dari fakulti boleh bertanding kerusi itu.

NONE"Kita bantah dan tidak bersetuju dengan sistem zon yang diperkenalkan. (Pentadbiran universiti) nak mengecil dan hadkan supaya tidak ada penguasaan Pro-Mahasiswa (bagi kerusi itu)," kata Yang Dipertua Majlis Perwakilan Pelajar (MPP) UM, Mohd Syahid Mohd Zaini (kanan).

Lebih-lebih lagi, dakwa Mohd Syahid, berdasarkan rekod, kerusi umum memang sukar dikuasai pihak lawan khususnya Penggerak Mahasiswa (pro-Aspirasi).

Sehubungan itu, pihaknya kini sedang mengumpul maklumat sebagai asas bantahan terhadap peraturan itu sebelum bertemu dengan Naib Canselor Profesor Datuk Ghauth Jasmon awal minggu hadapan.

"Kita akan berbincang terus dengan naib canselor berhubung perkara ini," katanya sambil mengakui mempunyai "masalah" dengan Timbalan Naib Canselor Hal Ehwal Pelajar Prof Rohana Yusof.

Berbeza dengan tahun lalu, pilihan raya kampus tahun ini menyaksikan perubahan dari sudut kerusi umum di mana ia dibahagikan kepada lima zon. Empat zon untuk pengundi ijazah sarjana muda dan satu zon lagi untuk pelajar sarjana yang memperuntukkan satu kerusi.

Mahasiswa boleh memilih seorang atau dua calon umum bagi setiap zon yang diwakili fakulti tertentu seperti yang ditetapkan. Bagi kerusi fakulti pula, peraturannya dikekalkan dan sebanyak 32 kerusi akan dipertandingkan.

'Kecilkan penguasaan mahasiswa API'
Dalam pilihan raya lalu, semua mahasiswa kampus itu boleh mengundi bagi memilih sembilan kerusi umum yang dipertandingkan. Pro-M menyapu bersih sembilan kerusi tersebut dan menang 16 kerusi fakulti.

Mohd Syahid - yang juga pelajar tahun akhir API - berkata jika peraturan itu dilaksanakan, mahasiswa API hanya boleh memenangi dua kerusi sahaja bagi zon yang terlibat, berbanding enam kerusi yang dimenangi mereka pada tahun lalu, kerana mahasiswa yang boleh mengundi di zon masing-masing sahaja.

universiti malaya um campus election 200109 pro mKatanya, setakat yang difahaminya, walaupun ramai calon API akan bertanding di zon tersebut, hanya dua calon sahaja yang akan dipilih, dan mereka (mahasiswa API) tidak boleh bertanding di zon lain.

"Calon API tidak dapat menguasai kerusi-kerusi umum yang lain. Ia memecahkan dominasi calon API untuk kerusi itu. Setiap tahun, setiap kali calon API bertanding, memang kita menang. Itu (pecah dominsi itu) yang kita nampak setakat ini.

"Pengundi zon itu, boleh mengundi di zonnya sahaja, tidak boleh mengundi di zon lain... Jadi sokongan (untuk) kami semakin mengecil. Mahasiswa boleh memilih dua calon umum sahaja," katanya ketika dihubungi Malaysiakini.

Sehubungan itu, Mohd Syahid mendakwa tindakan pentadbiran universiti memperkenalkan peraturan baru yang diumumkan kelmarin bertujuan untuk memastikan penguasaan mahasiswa API mengecil.

Ditanya sama ada mereka mempunyai tempoh untuk membantah memandangkan ura-ura pilihan raya kampus bakal berlangsung akhir Mac ini, Mohd Syahid berkata pihaknya sedaya upaya membantah perkara ini.

"Kita tidak akan putus ada. Kita akan lawan isu ini," katanya sambil berharap mengekalkan sistem dipraktikkan pilihan raya kampus sebelum ini.

NFC Puts Shopping Cart Before The Cow

Posted: 01 Mar 2012 06:58 PM PST

In a statement today, NFCorp Chairman, Datuk Seri Muhammad Salleh "explained that the publicly-funded cattle-rearing firm was building up the market in Singapore" to justify the setting up of a Farmhouse Supermarket in Singapore soon.

PKR Strategic Director Rafizi Ramli had first exposed the fact that NFCorp may be using public funds to expand into the supermarket business in Singapore which are owned directly by the directors of NFCorp and not by NFCorp itself.

Rafizi has today responded by questioning NFCorp on the basis of expansion overseas when it was the objective of the NFCorp to fulfill 40% of the local beef demand.  At the moment NFCorp is barely scratching 1% of the local market demands, hence any investments for overseas exports is not only premature, but also contrary of the objectives set out in the government's RM250 million loan agreement to the company.

I would further add the fact that opening a "supermarket" is a completely different business from that of "exporting" beef, even if such exports were indeed justified.  Sale of beef and beef products in such a supermarket would only  contribute a miniscule percentage of overall product sales and will do very little towards increasing the demand for beef from Malaysia in Singapore.

If promoting beef from NFCorp is indeed the overriding objective in setting up the Farmhouse Supermarket, then Datuk Seri Muhammed Salleh either completely lacks business sense or is lying through his teeth to justify the use of public funds.

What is perhaps most damning, is that a check with the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) of Singapore has shown that there is no approval to import raw beef from Malaysia.  At this point of time, only "processed beef" such as sausages, patties, meatballs, smoked meat etc., are approved for selected companies.  Even so, only 5 companies are approved and they are Mac Food Sdn Bhd, Nestle Manufacturing Sdn Bhd, PAP Cashnet Sdn Bhd, Unilever Bestfoods Sdn Bhd and Lucky Food Processing Sdn Bhd.

NFCorp has not  been given any approval to export its beef or processed meat to Singapore.  Hence how can Muhammed Salleh claim that the setting up of Farmhouse Supermarket, which is already about to open for business, be in the interest of promoting NFCorp's "Gemas Gold"?  Is this not a clear case of putting the cart before the cows?

Most importantly, the allegation that part of the RM250 million loan to NFCorp was utilized to set up Farmhouse Supermarket, which is directly owned by the family of Minister of Women and Family Development, Datuk Sharizat Abd Jalil has yet been answered by NFCorp.  Such diversion of funds from the NFCorp is clearly in breach of the Loan Agreement and the Companies Act 1965.

Datuk Seri Muhammed Salleh should not be distracted from the core issue of criminal breach of trust and must be held accountable to the tax-payers who are funding the operations of NFCorp.

Attorney-General Objected to West Coast Expressway Contract?

Posted: 01 Mar 2012 03:02 AM PST

The Malay Mail cover an exclusive story on the fact that the Attorney-General "is of the opinion the terms of agreement for the project, which has seen its cost balloon, are not in the public interest" on Monday, 27 February 2012.

According to the report, "Government sources tell The Malay Mail Abdul Gani had expressed reservations over the terms, which seem to heavily favour the highway concessionaire, WCE Sdn Bhd, a 64.2 per cent subsidiary of Kumpulan Europlus Bhd… Abdul Gani has put the Economic Planning Unit (EPU) and the relevant agencies and ministries such as the Malaysian Highway Authority, the Finance Ministry and the Works Ministry on notice over his reservations on the 316km-long highway that will link Banting in Selangor to Taiping, Perak, where 224km will be tolled."

Allegedly, according to their source, 'despite immense pressure to sign the legal documents, the A-G has informed the stakeholders he wants to review the terms of the agreement."

Assuming that the Malay Mail front-page report is spot on, then the Prime Minister must immediately answer as to why the Government is insistent on awarding the new WCE concession to Kumpulan Europlus via direct negotiation which has seen the cost of the project inflate excessively.

The cost of the expressway was RM3.0 billion when it was first awarded without tender in 2007 but further "negotiations" between the Government and the concessionaire has increased the cost to RM7.1 billion when it was re-awarded last month.  In addition, the concession period has been increased from 33 years originally to 60 years, a record for highway privatisation projects in Malaysia.

What is perhaps unacceptable is the fact that despite such attractive terms, the Government still have to provide RM2.24 billion of soft loans to the concessionaire, as well as up to 3% interest-subsidy for commercial loans secured.  The Government will also bear the cost of all land-acquisition, estimated at RM1 billion.

If the Malay Mail report is indeed true, then we call upon the A-G to do all necessary within his powers to ensure that the Government receives a fair bargain, and to avoid a repeat of many costly mistakes made by the Government in privatisation projects such as the RM12.5 billion Port Klang Free Zone scandal, toll highways which generates astronomical profits for the concessionaires such as the RM5.9 billion PLUS and the RM1.3 billion LDP.

What is shocking is the fact that the project is being awarded to a company with very poor financial record over the past few years.  Kumpulan Europlus earned revenues of RM50 million and RM28 million in the last 2 financial years of 2010 and 2011 respective.  Besides the small revenue base compared with the RM7.1 billion project, the company also made losses of RM35 million and RM46 million in the past 2 years.

Dato' Seri Najib Razak must walk the talk of "economic transformation" by implementing all the reforms on transparency and accountability that his administration has been preaching over the past 3 years.  He must not "over-rule" the opinions of the A-G to ensure that the people's interest comes first and the tax-payers' are not excessively burdened.  Instead, the Prime Minister must disclose in full the basis of the award of WCE to Kumpulan Europlus, as well as the financial justifications for the soft-loan, interest-subsidy, 4.1 billion increase in the cost of the highway as well as the 27-year extension of the concession.  Most importantly, the Government, in the interest of transparency, must disclose the proposed toll rates which will be imposed on motorists to justify such lucrative terms to the concessionaire.

Otherwise, all the talk of "economic transformation" which Najib has been "selling" to both local and foreign investors will be seen as just political rhetoric, and the Prime Minister will soon be branded by businessmen all over the world as the one who just could not deliver the promised changes.

人民需要知道收费站被废除的真相

Posted: 01 Mar 2012 08:41 PM PST

民主行动党全国副宣传秘书兼沙登区国会议员张念群发表文告:

首相纳吉昨天为雪州双溪龙华小主持动土礼时,宣布废除蕉加大道其中两个往返的收费站。

我们欢迎首相的宣布,因为这可让往返都使用该大道的上班族,减少一半的过路费。

然而,这是不足够的,纳吉应该对马来西亚人民更加开放和坦诚,我们有需要知道收费站被废除的真相。

在1995年 9月19日,联邦政府与蕉加大道公司签署特许经营权合约,授予该公司管理丶营运和维修该大道,长达30年的专属权利。

然而,在2002年,由於大道公司进行检讨大道过路费调涨被搁置,政府因而需根据合约把收费期限延长至2027年。过後,由於要开放从该大道衔接蕉赖皇冠城和敦胡申翁镇的主要通道,其合约再被延长3年至2030年,以作为赔偿。

大道公司获取的丰厚让利润会让人民感到吃惊!截至2010年12月31日,该公司的收入高达5亿8千500万令吉,而在同一时期的维修费用,只不过是1亿4千731万令吉,惟建设成本只是2亿8千200万令吉。

蕉加大道公司也因为搁置过路费调涨而获得政府的赔偿。在2003年和2004年,政府付出的赔偿款额高达1亿493万令吉,这还不包括豁免利息和偿还支持贷款。

纳吉应该停止扮演"圣诞老人"的角色,相反的,他应该坦诚交待废除其中两个收费站後,是否会延长蕉加大道的特许营合约,以及付出更多赔偿予蕉加大道公司。

我们将不允许他利用这项宣布,作为第十三届全国大选的政治资本,作为马来西亚的一份子,我们有权利知道真相,以及全部事实的真相。

Shocking RM2.52 Billion Losses In 2011 Suffered By MAS Marks A Spiralling Dive Of No Return For Our National Carrier Unless Failed Policies Are Replaced With Professional Management, Results-Oriented Work Ethic And A New Business Model Based On CAT (en/bm/cn)

Posted: 01 Mar 2012 12:36 AM PST

Press Statement by DAP Secretary-General and MP for Bagan Lim Guan Eng in Kuala Lumpur on 1.3.2012

Shocking RM2.52 Billion Losses In 2011 Suffered By MAS Marks A Spiralling Dive Of No Return For Our National Carrier Unless Failed Policies Are Replaced With Professional Management, Results-Oriented Work Ethic And A New Business Model Based On Competency, Accountability and Transparency(CAT)

The shocking net loss of RM2.52 billion for 2011 recorded by national carrier Malaysia Airlines (MAS) is a stark reminder of how mismanagement and a failed business model has caused a crisis in the once-reputable and proud airline with its cash reserves almost bled dry.In fact, MAS has been on a downward spiral since the departure of now Minister in the Prime Minister Department Dato' Seri Idris Jala in 2009, with its net profit of RM490 million in 2009 to RM234 million in 2010 plunging tragically to the record breaking staggering losses of RM2.52 billion in 2011.

These losses suffered are a far cry from a few years ago when Dato' Seri Idris Jala was tasked to revitalise MAS as CEO. He was appointed in 2005 and was able to turn the company around to record a profit of RM850 million in 2007 against a loss of RM1.3 billion two years before that. Why is it that Dato' Seri Idris was able to turn aroudn MAS and leave it in healthier conditions but all his hard work has been undone? Do we need Dato' Seri Idris Jala back at the MAS cockpit to save the doomed airline?

In addition to the stark losses, MAS's cash reserves more than halved to RM1 billion at the end of last year from RM2.1 billion at the end of 2010 while net assets dropped from RM3.5 billion to RM1.1 billion. In other words, MAS is no longer flying on fuel but instead is now flying on fumes. This is the legacy of a piratisation deal disguised as privatisation and subsequent re-nationalisation gone awry. Even 2001 bailout in which the Federal Government paid double the market price at the time could not rescue MAS from its fundamental problems. The Federal Government paid RM1.8 billion or RM8 per share to Tan Sri Tajudin Ramli instead of the market value of RM3.68 at the time.

MAS can not blame prevailing poor global economic conditions. In contrast Singapore Airlines managed to record profits last year. In fact, we need not even look that far as even local budget carrier Air Asia has been able to outdo MAS by miles. One need only to look at Air Asia's current market capitalization which stands at RM10.1 billion, compared to MAS at RM4.8 billion. Air Asia, despite being only a decade old and far smaller in operations, is worth more than double in market capitalisation!

There must be something wrong when a budget airline that charges far lesser fares can make more money than an airline that charges more. The viability of our national airline is in question until and unless the fundamental issues are resolved. Is it a question of a failed business model or management failure, or both?

Clearly, the only way to prevent our national asset from plunging into a fatal crash is to engage a new business model based on the principles of Competency, Accountability and Transparency which has served the Penang State Government well. Not only have we been able to impress and attract investors by being the top manufacturing investment destination in Malaysia for two consecutive years running in 2010 and 2011, Penang has also been able to record budget surpluses every year since 2008 and have shaved our state government debts by 95% from RM630 million to RM30 million.

The current business model employed by MAS is clearly a failed one. If MAS continues to subscribe to the old centrally-planned model and political interference that breed corruption and inefficiency, our national carrier is doomed.

Finally, the question that Malaysians demand to know is who will be held accountable for such a loss? Surely RM2.52 billion losses by our national airline is unacceptable to everyone in the country, especially when the reason it was renationalised in the first place was to rescue it from the afflictions of mismanagement and a poor business model. The government must identify those responsible for such huge losses and take action against them as the people expect nothing less from a responsible government.

Kenyataan Akhbar oleh Setiausaha Agung DAP dan Ahli Parlimen Bagan Lim Guan Eng di Kuala Lumpur pada 1.3.2012

Kerugian Mengejutkan Sebanyak RM2.52 Bilion Yang Dialami Oleh MAS Untuk Tahun 2011 Akan Menjunamkan Syarikat Penerbangan Kebangsaan Melainkan Dasar-Dasar Yang Gagal Digantikan Dengan Pengurusan Profesional, Etika Kerja Yang Berorientasikan Hasil Dan Model Bisnes Baru Yang Berdasarkan Prinsip Cekap, Akauntabel Dan Telus (CAT).

Kerugian mengejutkan sebanyak RM2.52 bilion yang dialami oleh syarikat penerbangan kebangsaan Malaysia Airlines (MAS) untuk tahun 2011 adalah pengingatan jelas bahawa salah urus dan model bisnes yang gagal telah mengakibatkan krisis dalam syarikat penerbangan yang pernah menjadi kebanggaan ramai apabila simpanan tunainya juga sudah hampir kehausan. Sebenarnya, MAS sudah pun mula menjunam sejak pemergian Menteri dalam Jabatan Perdana Menteri Dato' Seri Idris Jala pada tahun 2009, apabila keuntungan bersihnya telah merudum dari tahun ke tahun, yakni keuntungan RM490 juta pada tahun 2009 telah diikuti oleh keuntungan RM234 juta pada 2010 dan kemudiannya kerugian sebanyak RM2.52 bilion untuk tahun 2011.

Kerugian yang dialami ini jauh berbeza dengan prestasi beberapa tahun lalu apabila Dato' Seri Idris Jala telah dilantik untuk memulihkan MAS sebagai CEO. Beliau dilantik pada tahun 2005 dan telah berjaya mencatatkan keuntungan RM850 juta pada tahun 2007 berbanding dengan kerugian RM1.3 bilion hanya 2 tahun sebelum itu. Dato' Seri Idris telah memulihkan MAS tetapi semua usahanya sudah sia-sia sekarang. Adakah kita memerlukan Dato' Seri Idris Jala untuk kembali menerajui kokpit MAS untuk menyelamatkannya?

Di samping kerugian yang teruk itu, simpanan tunai MAS telah diseparuhkan kepada RM1 bilion pada akhir tahun lepas daripada RM2.1 bilion pada akhir tahun 2010, sementara aset bersih telah menurun daripada RM3.5 bilion kepada RM1.1 bilion.

Dalam kata lain, MAS sudah tidak lagi terbang dengan bahan api tetapi hanya terbang dengan wasap. Inilah pewarisan "piratisation" atau perompakan yang menyamar sebagai penswastaan dan kemudian pengambil alihan semula oleh kerajaan secara tidak keruan. Malah tindakan Kerajaan Persekutuan untuk menyelamatkan MAS pada tahun 2001 dengan membayar dua kali ganda harga pasaran tidak dapat membantu. Kerajaan Persekutuan telah membayar RM1.8 bilion ataupun RM8 setiap saham kepada Tan Sri Tajudin Ramli walaupun harga pasaran pada masa itu hanya RM3.68 setiap saham.

MAS tidak boleh menyalahkan keadaan ekonomi global yang kurang sihat kerana Singapore Airlines telah mencatatkan keuntungan untuk tahun lepas. Malah, kita tidak perlu pergi jauh kerana syarikat penerbangan bajet tempatan Air Asia pun telah mengalahkan MAS. Kita hanya perlu melihat permodalan pasaran Air Asia yang bernilai RM10.1 bilion, berbanding MAS yang hanya bernilai RM4.8 bilion. Meskipun Air Asia hanya berumur satu dekad dan jauh lebih kecil dari segi operasi, ia bernilai lebih dua kali ganda dalam permodalan pasaran.

Tentunya terdapat masalah apabila syarikat penerbangan bajet yang mengenakan caj yang lebih rendah boleh lebih berjaya dan untung berbanding syarikat penerbangan yang mengenakan caj yang tinggi. Daya maju syarikat penerbangan kebangsaan kita akan terus dipersoalkan melainkan isu-isu fundamental diselesaikan. Adakah ianya satu masalah model bisnes yang gagal atau pengurusan yang gagal, ataupun kedua-duanya?

Adalah jelas bahawa cara untuk mengelakkan aset kebangsaan kita daripada terhempas adalah untuk menggunakan model bisnes baru yang berdasarkan prinsip Cekap, Akauntabel dan Telus yang telah membawa kejayaan kepada Kerajaan Negeri Pulau Pinang. Bukan sahaja kita berjaya meyakinkan dan menarik pelabur dan menjadi destinasi pelaburan pembuatan nombor satu di Malaysia untuk dua tahun berturut-turut pada tahun 2010 dan 2011, Pulau Pinang juga telah mencatatkan lebihan bajet pada setiap tahun sejak 2008 dan telah mengurangkan hutang Kerajaan Negeri sebanyak 95% daripada RM630 juta kepada RM30 juta.

Model bisnes yang sedang digunakan MAS jelas sudah gagal. Sekiranya MAS terus menggunakan kaedah perancangan pusat dan membenarkan campur tangan politik yang membiakkan rasuah dan ketidak cekapan, syarikat penerbangan kebangsaan kita akan ditakdirkan untuk gagal.

Akhirnya, soalan yang ingin ditanya oleh rakyat Malaysia adalah siapakah yang akan bertanggungjawab untuk kerugian yang besar ini? Sudah tentu kerugian RM2.52 bilion oleh syarikat penerbangan kebangsaan kita ini tidak boleh diterima semua, terutamanya apabila sebab utama ia diselamatkan oleh kerajaan adalah untuk menyelamatkannya daripada masalah-masalah salah urus dan model bisnes yang lemah. Kerajaan mestilah mengenal pasti mereka yang bertanggungjawab untuk kerugian yang besar ini dan mengambil tindakan ke atas mereka kerana itulah yang diharapkan oleh rakyat Malaysia.

========Mandarian Translation ==================

民主行动党秘书长及峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2012年3月1日在吉隆坡发表的文告:

马航竟然在2011年亏了高达25亿2千万令吉,实在令人震惊。如果所有失败的政策再不以专业的管理、以工作成绩衡量及能干、公信、透明的新经营模式来取代,那么我们国家的前途将会急转直下难以再回首。

马航2011年净亏本25亿2千万令吉实在令人震惊,也在在显示了管理不当及经营模式的失灵,已经为这家曾经著名的航空公司带来危机,其现金储备也几近枯竭。其实,在现任首相署部长拿督斯里依德利斯在2009年离开马航后,马航业绩就急转直下,从2009年的净利4亿9千万令吉、下滑至2010年的2亿3千400万令吉,接着灾难性的在2011年疯狂净亏25亿2千万令吉。

这巨大亏损与数年前拿督斯里依德利斯作为马航总裁时,简直天差地远。他在2005年走马上任后,在2007就为马航创下8亿5千万净利纪录,成功扭转前两年净亏13亿令吉的局面。为何,拿督依德利斯能转亏为盈,并且让马航走上健康的正轨,但如今他的心力付出却功亏一篑?我们是否需要拿督依德利斯重返马航,领航马航,拯救垂危的马航?

在严重亏损下,马航的现金储备已经从2010年终的21亿令吉,骤降超过一半至2011年终的1亿令吉。同时,马航净资产也从35亿令吉骤降至11亿令吉。换句话说,马航现在不再是载满汽油飞翔,而是载着满满的烦恼与问题在飞。

这就是私己化伪装成私营化的后遗症,将促使接下来的再度国有化曲折重重。即使当2001年联邦政府付出双倍市价紧急财援马航的时候,也根治不了马航的核心问题。当时联邦政府给付丹斯里塔朱丁每股8令吉共18亿令吉,而其市价只有每股3令吉68仙。

马航不可以将差强人意的表现归就全球经济危机,因为相反的新加坡航空却在去年的净利创纪录。其实远的不说,就连我国的廉价航空公司亚航的营运也赢了马航好几条街。看看亚航现有的资本额已经高达101亿令吉,而马航只有48亿令吉。亚航不只年轻马航数十年,营运规模也比马航小,但是资本额竟然是马航的两倍!

收取更少费用的廉价航空比收费更高的航空更赚钱,这一定有问题。我们国家的航空公司是否可行还是个问题,除非根本问题获得解决,究竟问题出在失败的运作模式或失败的管理,还是两者都有问题?

显然,只有如槟州政府实行的能力、问责和透明原则为基础的新商业模式,才是预防国家资产陷入致命崩溃的唯一方法。槟州民联政府不仅能打动和吸引外资,在2010年和2011年连续蝉联全国制造业投资之冠,也在2008年执政槟州后每年有盈余,并减少州政府的债务高达95%,从6亿3000万令吉减少至3000万令吉。

马航目前的运作模式明显失败,如果马航继续延续腐败和低效率的旧式中央计划模式和政治干预,国家事业注定失败。

最后,大马人民要知道谁该为这项亏损负责?全国没有一个人可以接受国航亏损了25亿2000万令吉,尤其当初重新国有化国航的原因就是要拯救其管理不当和糟糕的经营模式,政府必须找出谁必须对此巨大亏损负责并采取对付行动,这是国民对一个负责任政府的期待。

Why Should The Concession Of Penang Bridge Be Extended By 17 Years From The Abolition Of Toll In 2021 To 2038 Just To Avoid Paying The Toll Increases Of 10% Every 5 Years?(en/bm/cn)

Posted: 01 Mar 2012 12:58 AM PST

Speech By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng During The PR Penang Youth Toll Debate At Dewan Besar Sungai Dua Hall in Teluk Air Tawar, Penang On 29.2.2012 Released On 1.3.3012.

I am disappointed that Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop failed to accept a public debate in his constituency tonight on whether the abolition of toll on the North-South Expressway(NSE) and Penang Bridge would bankrupt the nation.

Malaysia would not go bankrupt if PR abolish the NSEW and Penang Bridge toll should we win the next general elections. Malaysia would go bankrupt because of corruption, abuse of power and cronyism.

I had also wanted to ask Tan Sri Nor on the toll revision deal. Why the Federal government victimized Penang by extending the concession period for Penang Bridge by 17 years until 2038 and Butterworth-Kulim Expressway(BKE) by 11 years until 2038, in exchange for a freeze on toll hikes(see table below). For BKE the freeze on toll hikes is until 2015, a toll hike of 5% will have to be paid every 3 years from 2016.

TOLL COMPENSATION WAIVER ~ REVISED CONCESSION TERMS

Abolishing the NSE and Penang Bridge will not bankrupt the nation but is morally and ethically right. What is most unconscionable and unfair to the rakyat is that the toll operators of NSE and Penang Bridge are reaping obscenely high profits where they have more than recouped their original investments of construction cost.

In a written parliamentary reply to me, the toll operator for NSE spent RM 5,945 million to construct the NSE but has received RM 24,266 million in toll receipts and government compensation as at 31.12.2010. In other words the NSE toll operator has recorded a surplus of RM 18,321 million as at 31.12.2010 over his investment outlay.

Is there any need for the NSE toll operator to collect any more tolls from the public much less increase toll fares? By right and in the rakyat's interest, toll collection in the NSE should be stopped immediately in view that the revenue returns of RM 18.3 billion are 3 times more than the original investment of RM 6 billion.

The situation is similar for Penang Bridge which has collected RM 1,859 million but spent RM 944 million on construction cost, enjoying a surplus of RM 924 million. For BKE, toll collection amounts to RM 340 million on construction cost of RM 256 million, recording a surplus of RM 84 million. Instead of paying until 31 December 2038, Penangites should not be paying any toll at all in the Penang Bridge and the BKE.

Maximum RM50 Billon Cost For Abolishing Both NSE And Penang Bridge Will Not Bankrupt Malaysia.
Abolishing both NSE and Penang Bridge costs a maximum of RM50 billion, RM R40 billion for the NSE and RM10 billion for the Penang Bridge. RM50 billion will not bankrupt the nation. It is corruption, abuse of power and cronyism that will bankrupt the nation. After all the new MRT project costs more than RM50 billion.

Malaysia can afford RM 50 billion to abolish tolls in Penang Bridge and NSE but not corruption that costs more than USD100 billion(RM35 billion). The Global Financial Integrity Report highlighted that illicit(black) money secretly taken out of Malaysia during the lost "decade of corruption" from 2000-2009 amounted to RM 1,077 billion.

Tan Sri Nor should also explain how the revision deal of extension of the Penang Bridge toll concession from 2021 to 2038 in exchange for no toll hikes of 10% indeed benefits Penangites. Given a choice, Penangites would be willing to suffer 10% increases in toll hikes every 5 years in exchange for the toll ending on 31.12.2021 than wait until 31.12.2038 even though no toll hikes are imposed.

Similarly for the BKE, Penangites would be willing to pay 15-25% toll hike every 5 years until 27.6.2026 than continue paying until 31.12.2038. BKE is even worse than the Penang Bridge as there will be toll hikes of 5% for every 3 years after 2016 instead of every 5 years.

This revision deal of extension of the toll concession until 2038 in exchange for waiving government compensation of RM6.5 billion was done without consultation with the people and benefits only the toll operators at the expense of Penangites and Malaysians.

Ucapan Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang Lim Guan Eng semasa Debat PR Pulau Pinang di Dewan Besar Sungai Dua di Teluk Air Tawar, Pulau Pinang pada 29.2.2012 dan disiarkan pada 1.3.2012

Kenapakah Tempoh Konsesi Jambatan Pulau Pinang Dilanjutkan 17 Tahun Dari 2021 Ke 2038 Hanya Untuk Mengelak Daripada Membayar Kenaikan Toll 10% Setiap Lima Tahun?

Saya berasa dukacita bahawa Menteri dalam Jabatan Perdana Menteri Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop gagal untuk menerima cabaran debat umum di kawasan beliau malam ini atas topik sama ada pemansuhan tol Lebuhraya Utara-Selatan (NSE) dan Jambatan Pulau Pinang akan menjadikan negara kita bankrap.

Malaysia tidak akan bankrap jika PR memansuhkan tol NSE dan Jambatan Pulau Pinang sekiranya kita memenangi Pilihan Raya Umum yang akan datang. Yang akan menjadikan Malaysia bankrap adalah rasuah, penyalahgunaan kuasa dan kronisme.

Saya juga ingin tanya Tan Sri mengenai semakan semula tol. Kenapakah Kerajaan Persekutuan memangsakan Pulau Pinang dengan melanjutkan tempoh konsesi Jambatan Pulau Pinang selama 17 tahun sehingga 2038 dan Lebuhraya Butterworth-Kulim (BKE) selama 11 tahun sehingga 2038, sebagai balasan untuk pembekuan kenaikan tol (lihat rajah di bawah)? Untuk BKE, pembekuan kenaikan tol hanya sampai 2015, dan kadar tol akan dinaikkan 5% setiap 3 tahun dari 2016.

PENGECUALIAN PAMPASAN TOL ~ SEMAKAN SEMULA TERMA KONSESI

Pemansuhan tol NSE dan Jambatan Pulau Pinang tidak akan menjadikan negara bankrap tetapi adalah betul dari segi moral dan etika. Yang tidak berhati perut dan tidak adil kepada rakyat adalah hakikat bahawa syarikat-syarikat pengendali tol sedang mengaut keuntungan yang sangat tinggi walaupun kos pelaburan asal untuk pembinaan sudah habis dikutip.

Jawapan bertulis Parlimen kepada saya telah menunjukkan bahawa syarikat pengendali tol NSE telah membelanjakan RM5,945 juta untuk pembinaan lebuhraya tersebut, tetapi sudah menerima sebanyak RM24,266 juta daripada kutipan tol dan pampasan kerajaan setakat 31.12.2010. Dalam erti kata lain, syarikat pengendali tol NSE telah mencatat lebihan sebanyak RM18,321 juta setakat 31.12.2010 daripada pelaburan asal.

Adakah perlu lagi untuk syarikat tersebut untuk mengutip lagi banyak tol daripada rakyat apatah lagi untuk menaikkan kadar tol? Sepatutnya, dan jika diambil kira kepentingan rakyat, kutipan tol bagi NSE patut dihentikan serta merta memandangkan hasil kutipannya yang berjumlah RM18.3 bilion sudah pun 3 kali ganda pelaburan asal iaitu RM6 bilion.

Keadaannya serupa untuk Jambatan Pulau Pinang yang telah mengutip sebanyak RM1,859 juta dengan kos pembinaan RM944 juta. Lebihan yang dicatat sebanyak RM924 juta. Bagi BKE, tol yang dikutip berjumlah RM340 juta manakala kos pembinaannya RM256 juta, iaitu lebihan sebanyak RM84 juta. Rakyat Pulau Pinang bukan sahaja tidak sepatutnya terus dibebani tol sehingga 31 Disember 2038, malah tol bagi Jambatan Pulau Pinang dan BKE harus dihentikan serta merta.

Kos Maksimum RM50 Bilion Untuk Pemansuhan NSE dan Jambatan Pulau Pinang Tidak Akan Menjadikan Malaysia Bankrap

Kos maksimum untuk pemansuhan NSE dan Jambatan Pulau Pinang adalah RM50 bilion, iaitu RM40 bilion untuk NSE dan RM10 bilion untuk Jambatan Pulau Pinang. RM50 bilion tidak akan menjadikan negara bankrap. Yang akan menjadikan negara bankrap adalah rasuah, penyalahgunaan kuasa dan kronisme. Lagipun, kos projek MRT baru pun sudah mencecah RM50 bilion.

Malaysia mampu membayar RM50 bilion untuk memansuhkan tol Jambatan Pulau Pinang dan NSE tetapi tidak mampu menanggung rasuah yang berjumlah 100 bilion dolar Amerika (RM35 bilion). Laporan Global Financial Integriti telah menunjukkan bahawa sejumlah RM1,077 bilion wang haram telah dibawa keluar dari Malaysia dalam dekad yang hilang dek korupsi dari tahun 2000-2009.

Tan Sri Nor harus menjelaskan bagaimana semakan semula dan pelanjutan konsesi tol Jambatan Pulau Pinang dari tahun 2021 ke 2038 sebagai balasan untuk pembekuan tol 10% betul-betul boleh membawa manfaat kepada rakyat Pulau Pinang. Sekiranya diberi pilihan, rakyat Pulau Pinang lagi sanggup menerima kenaikan tol 10% setiap 5 tahun jika tol dimansuhkan pada 31.12.2021 daripada menunggu sampai 31.12.2038 walaupun tiada kenaikan tol dikenakan.

Serupa juga untuk BKE, rakyat Pulau Pinang lagi sanggup membayar kenaikan tol 15-25% setiap 5 tahun sampai 27.6.2026 daripada membayar sehingga 31.23.2038. BKE adalah lebih teruk berbanding Jambatan Pulau Pinang kerana bermula dari tahun 2016 kadar tol akan dinaikkan 5% setiap 3 tahun berbanding setiap 5 tahun.

Semakan semula dan pelanjutan tempoh konsesi tol sehingga 2038 sebagai balasan pengecualian pampasan kerajaan sebanyak RM6.5 bilion telah dilakukan tanpa rundingan dengan rakyat dan hanya menguntungkan syarikat-syarikat pengendali tol sementara yang ruginya rakyat Pulau Pinang dan Malaysia.

槟州首席部长林冠英于2012年2月29日在直落斗哇大礼堂槟州民联青年团大道收费站辩论会上发表演讲:

为什么槟城大桥的特许经营权在2021年结束后,还要延长17年至2038年,以避免每5年涨价10%?

我感到很失望,因为首相署部长丹斯里诺莫哈末耶谷不愿意出席今晚在其选区的辩论会,那就是:废除南北大道及槟城大桥过路费,是否会导致国家破产?

如果民联赢得选举,废除南北大道及槟城大桥过路费,马来西亚不会因此破产。马来西亚将会因贪污、滥权、朋党而破产。

我要问丹斯里诺莫哈末有关检讨收费站的事项。为什么联邦政府要分别延长槟城大桥特许经营权17年、北海居林高速大道11年,直至2038年,让槟城受苦,以避免过路费涨价(见表)。北海居林大道不起涨至2015年,从2016年开始,过路费将会每三年调高5%。

过路费赔款免除 ~ 重新检讨的特许经营条件

废除南北大道和槟城大桥不会导致国家破产,这是道德及伦理正确的。对人民最不合理及不公平的是,南北大道和槟城大桥已经赚取了比承建费高出许多倍的利润。

在国会给我的回答中,南北大道特许公司花费了59亿4500万令吉来承建南北大道,截至2010年12月31日,它们已经从过路费及政府赔偿当中赚取了242亿6600万令吉。换句话说,南北大道特许公司在2010年12月31日已经赚取了183亿2100万令吉的盈利。

我们还有必要让南北大道特许经营公司继续征收过路费、甚至调高过路费吗?按理说,如果是为了人民的利益,南北大道应该马上停止征收过路费,因为它的回酬已达183亿令吉,是原有投资额60亿令吉的3倍。

同样地,槟城大桥已经收取了18亿5900万令吉的过路费,其承建费为9亿4400万令吉,利润为9亿2400万令吉。北海居林大道所收取的过路费是3亿4000万令吉,其承建费为2亿5600万令吉,利润为8400万令吉。槟城人民根本无需再交过路费给槟城大桥及北海居林大道,而不是继续交到2038年12月31日。

废除南北大道及槟城大桥收费站最多花费500亿令吉,这不会让马来西亚破产。

废除南北大道及槟城大桥收费站将最多花费500亿令吉,即南北大道400亿令吉、槟城大桥100亿令吉。这500亿令吉不会让马来西亚破产。让国家破产的是贪污、滥权及朋党主义。再说,新的捷运工程也花费超过500亿令吉。

马来西亚花得起500亿令吉来废除槟城大桥和南北大道收费站,而不是超出1000亿美元(350亿令吉)的贪污。全球金融廉正报告也指出,2000年至2009年间,秘密带出马来西亚的黑钱高达1兆770亿令吉。

丹斯里诺应该解释,将槟城大桥特许经营权由2021年延长至2038年,以交换"不涨价10%",到底对槟城人有没有好处?如果有选择,槟城人宁可承受每五年涨10%,直至2021年12月31日停缴过路费为止,而不是在过路费不涨价的情况下,一直交到2038年12月31日。

同样地道理,槟城人宁可每5年承受北海居林大道过路费上涨15-25%,而不是一直交过路费交到2038年12月31日。北海居林大道比槟城大桥更糟的是,2016年过后,每3年(不是每5年)涨价5%。

大道特许经营权期限延长至2038年,以交换政府不需赔款65亿令吉,这项决定并没有经过公众咨询,只让特许经营公司受惠,牺牲槟城人和马来西亚人的利益。

Tumpu PRU13, jangan terperangkap titik bengik

Posted: 01 Mar 2012 04:34 AM PST


KUALA LUMPUR, 1 Mac: Ketua Penerangan PAS Pusat, Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man berkata, tidak timbul soal perlantikan pimpinan dari kalangan bukan Islam dalam parti.


Ini, katanya kerana perlembagaan parti jelas memperuntukkan Islam sebagai syarat utama dengan menjadikan al-Quran, hadis, ijmak ulamak dan qias sebagai rujukan.

"Tidak mungkin seseorang yang tidak yakin dengan sumber rujukan parti akan dipilih sebagai pimpinan," ujarnya dalam satu kenyataan.


Beliau berkata demikian sebagai respons terhadap laporan media  mengenai pandangan AJK PAS Pusat, Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad kelmarin, bahawa PAS bersedia menerima bukan Islam sebagai pemimpin barisan kedua parti sekiranya ia satu keperluan.

Namun kata Dr. Dzulkefly, perkara itu tidak timbul sekarang ini, dan jika sekalipun akan dilaksanakan, perkara itu perlu diputuskan dalam muktamar parti.

Justeru, Tuan Ibrahim menambah, PAS menyeru seluruh ahli memberikan fokus kepada persiapan Pilihan raya Umum ke-13 (PRU13) yang semangkin hampir.

"Jangan terperangkap dengan plot yang dirancang oleh musuh, tanpa kita sedari. Kerana terlalu banyak masa, tenaga dan tumpuan kepada titik bengik dalaman parti, sedikit sebanyak akan menjejaskan tumpuan Pilihan raya Umum," ujarnya yang juga Pesuruhjaya PAS Pahang.(harakahdaily)

PIMPINAN TERTINGGI PAS MESTI ISLAM

Posted: 29 Feb 2012 07:45 PM PST


SHAH ALAM, 1 Mac 2012 – Pas tetap mengutamakan mereka beragama Islam memegang jawatan tertinggi dalam parti dan keputusan melantik bukan Islam sebagai timbalan presiden atau setiausaha agungnya mustahil dilaksanakan.


Ketua Dewan Ulama Pas, Datuk Harun Taib berkata, melantik bukan Islam mengisi jawatan itu memerlukan pindaan perlembagaan dan persetujuan sepenuhnya daripada muktamar.

"Jika (Ahli Jawatankuasa Pas Pusat) Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad mengesyorkan untuk membuka pintu membolehkan bukan Islam dilantik ke jawatan timbalan presiden, saya rasa itu hanya pandangan peribadinya dan tiada kaitan dengan dasar parti. Ia bukan keputusan Pas.

"Pas tidak pernah berbincang mengenainya. Ia bukan perkara mudah kerana memerlukan suara majoriti dan mereka perlu bersetuju serta menerima keputusan untuk membuka jawatan itu kepada bukan Islam," katanya.

Katanya, orang bukan Islam perlu memeluk Islam dan menjadi ahli Pas sebelum boleh diberi jawatan.

Sementara itu, Setiausaha Agung Pas, Datuk Mustafa Ali berkata, kenyataan Ahli Parlimen Kuala Selangor itu hanya sekadar teori dan sukar dilaksanakan pada masa sekarang.

"Saya kira Pas patut kekalkan sahaja apa yang ada sekarang," katanya.

Menurutnya, kekangan daripada perlembagaan menyebabkan Pas tidak boleh menerima bukan Islam memegang jawatan tertinggi parti berkenaan, tetapi tidak boleh meramalkan apa yang boleh berlaku pada masa hadapan.

"Kalau tanya saya sekarang, ia tidak boleh. Jika bukan Islam berminat dengan Pas, mereka disyorkan menganggotai Dewan Himpunan Penyokong Pas, tetapi tetap tidak boleh memegang jawatan timbalan presiden," katanya.

Ditanya sama ada beliau akan meminta penjelasan daripada Dzulkefly mengenai perkara itu, beliau akan berbuat demikian jika berjumpa dengannya.

Dr Dzulkefly membuat kenyataan itu dalam Wacana Sinar Harian bertajuk 'Mengapa Undi Melayu Pecah?' kelmarin. - Sinar Harian

PKNS, LZS BAWA SINAR BAHAGIA

Posted: 29 Feb 2012 07:28 PM PST

PKNS

BAGAN TERAP – Program Baikpulih Negeri Berkebajikan (Ceria) yang diwujudkan untuk kerja menaik taraf perumahan kos rendah dan sederhana rendah di kawasan bandar bakal direalisasikan ke kawasan luar bandar.

Exco Perumahan, Pengurusan Bangunan dan Setinggan Iskandar Abdul Samad berkata, pihaknya akan membangkitkan cadangan untuk membawa program itu ke kawasan luar bandar bagi rumah golongan sasar menerusi perkongsian kos.

"Kita akan bangkitkan, jika kita sudah tunaikan tanggungjawab di bandar, kita hendak membawa program yang sama di kawasan luar bandar dengan mewujudkan tabung bagi tujuan itu bersama-sama dengan PKNS dan anak syarikat," katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian dalam sidang media ketika Majlis Perasmian Program Tanggungjawab Sosial Korporat (CSR) Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Selangor (PKNS) – Baik Pulih Rumah Asnaf Fakir dan Miskin, di Jalan Lubuk Pusing, di sini.


Bantuan ditanggung penuh PKNS

Bantuan baik pulih rumah itu melibatkan peruntukan sebanyak RM396,000 kepada 22 unit rumah yang ditanggung sepenuhnya PKNS sebagai salah satu di antara CSR yang mana setiap unit rumah menerima bantuan pembaikan kediaman sebanyak RM18,000.

Turut hadir, Timbalan Pengurus Besar (Pentadbiran dan Pembangunan) PKNS, Noraida Mohd Yusof, Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif Lembaga Zakat Selangor, Mohamed Izam Mohamed Yusof, Ketua Penolong Pegawai Daerah (Pembangunan) Sabak Bernam, Jasman Syazry Mohd
Saari dan Setiausaha Majlis Daerah Sabak Bernam, Azril Hakim Mohd Yazid.

Menurutnya, sebanyak RM9.7 juta diperuntukkan Kerajaan Negeri menerusi Tabung Ceria dan daripada jumlah itu, pemilik pangsapuri perlu membiayai sebanyak 20 peratus kerja baik pulih manakala 80 peratus lagi dibiayai Tabung Ceria.

"Bagi fasa pertama ini sebanyak 18 kawasan terlibat dan 10 daripadanya telah siap, manakala lapan lagi dalam proses.

"Kita juga menerima 50 permohonan bagi fasa kedua dan 26 permohonan sudah membuat bayaran pendahuluan lima peratus daripada 20 peratus," katanya.


Peruntukan RM2.2 juta wang zakat

SEMENTARA itu, LZS memperuntukkan sebanyak RM2.2 juta wang zakat bagi program tanggungjawab sosial korporat (CSR) untuk asnaf fakir dan miskin, mualaf dan fisabilillah.

Daripada jumlah itu, RM1.4 juta diperuntukkan untuk asnaf fakir, asnaf miskin dan mualaf, manakala RM726,000 lagi bagi fisabilillah.

Selain daripada peruntukan zakat, PKNS juga menyediakan sejumlah RM1.2 juta untuk menjalankan program CSR lain kepada rakyat Selangor antaranya bantuan pengurusan Rumah Puteri Arafiah iaitu rumah perlindungan bagi remaja bermasalah, Sekola Agama Rakyat (KAFA Integrasi), sumbangan lembu korban, pusat komuniti iaitu Anjung PKNS di Seksyen 7, Shah Alam dan sebagainya.


Sinar baru kepada penerima

Ia sememangnya memberi sinar baru kepada penerima bantuan baik pulih kediaman asnaf fakir dan miskin ini untuk memiliki kediaman yang selesa.

Seorang penerima, Parni Tahir, 54, melahirkan rasa gembira dan penghargaan kepada PKNS kerana merealisasikan hasratnya untuk memiliki kediaman selesa.

"Kami benar-benar menghargai sumbangan dan bantuan yang diberikan kerana ia membolehkan kami mengecapi kehidupan di rumah yang selesa. Selepas ini, kami tidak perlu lagi menadah timba di sana-sini ketika hujan," katanya.

Sementara itu, sebuah lagi keluarga yang terdiri daripada empat beradik yang masing-masingnya merupakan orang kelainan upaya (OKU) turut melahirkan rasa syukur dan terima kasih dengan bantuan baik pulih rumah yang diberikan.

Mohd Saharudin Sakiman, 29, berkata, rumah yang didiami bersama tiga abangnya iaitu Tukimon, 47, Zamri, 39, dan Mohd Yusrizan, 33, itu mengalami kerosakan teruk sejak dua tahun lalu terutamanya di bahagian bumbung rumah, dinding dan dapur.

"Saya amat bersyukur dan berterima kasih kepada pihak yang terbabit," katanya.


Tanggungjawab sosial korporat (CSR) PKNS

PENGURUS Besar PKNS, Othman Omar berkata, bantuan itu adalah sebagai salah satu di antara program tanggungjawab sosial korporat (CSR) yang dijalankan selama ini dan setiap unit rumah menerima bantuan pembaikan sebanyak RM18,000.

"Bantuan ini diharap serba sedikit dapat meringankan beban yang ditanggung oleh golongan asnaf fakir dan miskin di samping memberikan mereka kehidupan yang selesa," katanya.

RENT DEFAULTERS MAY BE ASSIGNED TO GUARD LIFTS

Posted: 29 Feb 2012 03:13 PM PST

PETALING JAYA, 2 December 2011 : Mayor Datuk Mohamad Roslan Sakiman said about RM4 million is spent yearly for the repair and maintenance of public housing scheme (PPR) flats in the city. To compound matters, rentals owed by occupants have reached about RM5 million.

A vandalised lift with its missing button panel in PPR Lembah Subang.


He added the council is thinking of safeguarding the PPR facilities, such as the lifts, by getting flat owners who default on their RM124 monthly rentals to become "security guards".   

"Maybe those who default on their flat rentals should be assigned to guard the flats' lifts. The lifts at these flats are very important to the residents. Most of the time, they break down due to improper use and vandalism.

"These flats do not belong to the council but the council is paying for their maintenance. We should think of a way to make sure the facilities are well guarded," said the mayor.

He added that PPR Lembah Subang has eight blocks of flats with three lifts at each block. PPR Kota Damansara has four blocks of flats with also three lifts in each block. Both  flats are known for their high rate of vandalism.

Recently, Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim visited two PPR flats in Section 8 Kota Damansara and Lembah Subang.

The residents had complained the council did not do a good job in maintaining the flat facilities such as the water tank and lifts.

"It is a norm for residents living in these flats to keep the motorbikes in their units. They fear their vehicles will be stolen. Residents also bring the bikes to their units using the lifts and this results in the lifts  breaking down," he said. - NST

As I see it, it is all convenient creative accounting.

Take a hit in 2011. Charge provisions for 2012 expenses and some mysterious expenses in the 2011 books and:

1. Justifies the illogical actions already taken.

2. Justifies the harsh actions planned.

3. When 2012 ends, a nice recovery (comparing to 2011) can easily be shown.

Oldest trick in the books.

we MAS staff do admit that we break record of “rugi bersih” but do u read btw the line why staff did not support the current mgmt?

back in 2005, MAS also loss RM 1.2B but we come back strong and make record profit of RM 800++ mil in 2007. however, MAS also hold world record for highest turnover of MD and each MD do their own plan. how on earth MAS to make profit/business ifd every 2-3 years new MD come if and change everything????????????? that yet to include “social/politic obligation” that MAS need to face

is not cause of racist or we are not that stupid to understand the concept of P&L. if u are so informative, just tell us the info rather give general info like that….seem that u hv no idea what actually transpire in MAS right now…..

the simple fact is as-to-date, the current mgmt yet to come clean with staff what is the business plan. the business plan must have certain target, way to achieve and timeline to achieve that target. what AJ presented to us just a general BP…yet never reveal to us what is the expected $$$ from these plan, how to achieve and when. this is the basis info yet we are still kept in the dark…. or AJ/danny still on “try-and-error” mode????? do u know that AJ never make solid decision and always flip-flop in decision making… say 1 thing today, another thing tomorrow.. how to work with this kind of boss??????

if AJ want support of the staff, pls transparent with us…JUST THAT… is that too much to ask??????????????

staff will definitely will support AJ if he has solid business plan as it involve our “periuk nasik”

The number of misinformed people commenting on this thread is mind-boggling.

Elsewhere, airlines make losses. They suck it up, carry out remedial measures and move on.

Like Japan Airlines went into bankruptcy, cut a large number of routes and employees and emerged stronger and leaner.

Or how Qantas CEO Alan Joyce faced down his unions and is pushing through a major restructuring exercise that could see some 5,000 employees lose their jobs.

Ditto for British Airlines, Air France-KLM, Lufthansa and airlines in the US.

In short, wherever airlines are treated as commercial enterprises, subject to unfettered competition and the vicissitudes of the market.

But in Malaysia? Oh, no. Here every issue takes on a nasty racist slant, the profit motive is openly denigrated and the logic of competition and free markets blissfully ignored.

RM2.5 Billion lost after AJ & Dannyboy take over 6 months ago? What are the consultants & new top managers AJ & Dannyboy hired to do doing? Clearly show that they, AJ & Dannyboy dont know what they are doing! What I heard from friends in MAS is that what the consultants is doing is only shouting & scolding at the staff. Is that how a consultant behave when they are paid millions to help the staff in crisis? the staff are not the slaves. They are customers of the consultants. I think the consultants name Plane Consult really means Plainly Conartist! The new top managers Aj hired also cant come up with a business plan because they also dont know what to do & AJ said they come with experienced from many foreign airlines & big companies? What waste of money! The retired & curent MAS staff will know what to do better. Good Luck to Anti Suap, Dr. Don Juan & Tansri Abdol Aziz in your fight!

Like Time Traveller said Why AJ needs Martin Barrow as adviser? What aviation exeprience does Mr MB have? All the facts show that MB was in MAS Board of Directors for 10 years until last year when he, Munir & his friends in Board of Directors was replaced by Tony, Dannyboy & more new faces without experience in airline business. If in the last 10 years MB didnt do his job (which contribute to RM1 Billion loss sometime last year) why does Aj think that MB can help make profits? It is so shameful that Aj cant do his job & didnt do a due diligence check on MB before appointing him as adviser! Taking MB as adviser for aircraft safety is rediculous when MAS already has very good air safety record for 50 years under the internal Air Safety Team boss Dr Ooi. Coming from London with only GCE certificate (like SPM) did MB helped MAS to get more slots or better parking area in Heathrow? I think Mb is only good if AJ is looking for adviser to buy for MAS some wheel-barrows!

With all these new advisers & consultants giving wrong advise & conning MAS staff, PM & public, where is the comments from the government appointed adviser? Being a former PM he must be making statements & point out wrong doings. Just like the other government appointed adviser to a national car company. Or like what the MAS staff say is he adviser in name only? Or is TF & AJ ignoring him like what the previous boss of a national car company did to the other adviser?

Wake up PM! If you are proud of what your father do to Felda then you must also proud your father started MAS when Malaysia Singapore Airlines broke-up. So if you can look at Felda (not because of voters), please look at MAS too (also not because of voters in Subang, Sepang, Shah Alam area). Do it because it is the 1Malaysia national flag carrier!

If you are the MD/CEO of a company, wouldn’t you have asked your management on the huge increase of staff cost? The number should have alarmed you as the MD that it warrants explanation. This shows to prove that the MAS MD did not see it as alarming and hence did not ask his people for an expanation and that’s why he was clueless himself yesterday. And surely there are monthly financial accounts that have alerted the company on the huge staff cost. There has been no significant increase in the number of staff and there was no payment of bonus too, so the huge staff cost is very surprising. Unless of course certain people appointed got a HUGE salary and employment package that we didnt know of. Or then again, the numbers are just made up…..
Since MD said he would come back with an answer soon, hope the unions and associations can follow up on this and make public the explanation via email to all staff. And this should be done within 24 hours.
