Adenan Must Make Clear his Autonomy Agenda for Sarawak and not merely shouting an empty “Autonomy” Slogan

Adenan Must Make Clear his Autonomy Agenda for Sarawak and not merely shouting an empty "Autonomy" Slogan. If Adenan is unsure about his "Autonomy Agenda", he is Most Welcomed to refer to the DAP's "BINTULU DECLARATION"
On 4-6-2015, for the first time, Adenan called for more autonomy for Sarawak. However, many are disappointed that Adenan did not elaborate on the areas that autonomy needs to be reinstated to Sarawak.
The mere call for "autonomy" without any clear agenda is nothing but slogan. It sounds good and loud, but like empty can, is hollow inside.
Therefore, Adenan must list out the areas in which he wishes Sarawak to have its autonomy. If Adenan is unsure of what autonomy he wants for Sarawak, we welcome him to read through the DAP's "Bintulu Declaration – Towards Equal Partners" launched on 26-10-2014 in Bintulu.
In the said Bintulu Declaration, we have called for the renegotiation and review of the Ninth Schedule of the Federal Constitution to devolve powers of education, health care and police matters to the State Government of Sarawak.
Under this concept of autonomy, Sarawak government shall have the power to write the syllabus for schools in Sarawak, plan for the building of schools and hospitals in the State, bear all administration and development expenses in these 3 areas.
To finance our autonomy in these 3 areas, Sarawak must have sufficient revenue. Otherwise, if finance is still controlled by the Federal Government, there is no point for us to claim "autonomy" when we cannot even afford to pay the teachers, medical staff and police officers.
In any government institution, the person who controls the finance controls everything. As such, it is thus our suggestion that 20% Oil and Gas Royalty and 50% of all tax revenue generated and collected in Sarawak must be paid to the State Government of Sarawak.
Therefore, it is imperative that we must first have the 20% Oil and Gas Royalty paid to the State Government and not allow the Federal Government to sit on the matter indefinitely. Any delay on the part of the Federal Government in realising the 20% Oil and Gas Royalty demand is a show of disrespect and contempt on the Sarawak DewanUndanganNegeri which has passed a unanimous resolution on such demand.
If the State Government cannot even get the Federal Government to agree to the 20% Oil and Gas Royalty, how is Adenan going to proceed further on his call for "autonomy".
Therefore, if Adenan is serious about his call for Sarawak Autonomy, he must first list out the area in which he wants Sarawak Government to have the autonomy and then proceed with:
1. Getting the 20% Oil and Gas Royalty for Sarawak
2. Re-negotiate on theNinth Schedule of the Federal Constitution to devolve the power to the State Government which will have to include,at least 50% of the tax collected in Sarawak to be paid to the State Government.

促阿德南列出其“砂自主权”议程,非只空喊“自主权”口号。

Posted: 11 Jun 2015 01:31 AM PDT

民主行动党古晋市国会议员兼哥打圣淘沙州议员张健仁敦促阿德南明确的列出其"砂自主权"的议程,而非只是空喊"自主权"的口号。
张健仁说,阿德南于本月4日公开向纳吉喊出"砂自主权"的口号,但是,让人失望的是,过后,阿德南并没有任何跟进明确的说明,他要那些领域的砂自主权。
"阿德南喊出'自主权'的口号,让许多砂州子民都感到兴奋。但是,若没有明确的议程或目标,最终,这口号只是沦为纯粹口号而已,却没有实际的议程和效应。"
张健仁表示,如果阿德南没有头绪要在那些领域争取砂州自主权,他欢迎阿德南参阅砂州民主行动党于2014年10月26日于该党砂州党员代表大会所通过的"民都鲁宣言 --- 迈向平等伙伴"。
张氏说,行动党的该项《民都鲁宣言》有明确的列出那些领域,砂州必须拿回自主权,其中包括教育、医药和警察事务。要取得这些领域的自主权,砂州政府必须与联邦政府重新检讨和谈判有关联邦宪法第九附录有关联邦和州权限的事项。
他说,这3个领域自主权的概念,包含砂州政府自己编写学校的课程、计划和发展学校、医院和警队的设施及砂州政府负责所有这3领域每年的行政和发展开支。 因此,砂州政府必须拥有自己税收。
"有鉴于此,砂州行动党的《民都鲁宣言》也提议,20%的石油天然气开采税和50%在砂州收到的所有税收,归还砂州政府。 因为,如果税收还是归联邦政府控制,再响亮的'砂自主权'喊话,也只是空谈而已。"
张氏强调,在任何政府机构,谁控制财政,谁才有实权控制一切。因此,砂州政府首先要做的,就是促使联邦政府同意,由砂州州议会所一致通过的议案,即,20%石油天然气的开采税归还砂州政府。
"阿德南不应允许纳吉和联邦政府无限期的拖延落实砂州州议会所通过的议案。 这种缓兵之计是对砂州州议会不敬,也是漠视砂州政府的地位。 阿德南应该促使纳吉和联邦政府,立刻把20%的石油天然气开采税归还砂州政府。"
张健仁指出,目前是纳吉和巫统最脆弱的时刻。如果在现在这样的形势,砂州政府连20%的石油天然气开采税都得不到,那砂州国阵政府又将如何争取到更多的自主权。
张氏强调,如果阿德南是真的要为砂州争取更多的自主权,他首先要做的就是,列出他所谓的自主权,到底是哪些领域的自主权,之后:
1. 为砂州取得20%的石油天然气开采税;及
2. 开始重新检讨及与联邦政府展开谈判有关修改联邦宪法第九附录有关联邦和州的权限事项,包括将50%在砂州所收得的税收归还砂州政府。
