DAP: Have even split between Pakatan-BN on panel

DAP leaders today scoffed at the seat allocation on the proposed Parliamentary select committee on electoral reform, saying it is not necessary to have an independent MP on the panel.

They said the composition of MPs on the nine-member panel – five from BN, three from Pakatan Rakyat and one independent – would only favour the BN since most of the independent members of the Dewan Rakyat support the ruling coalition.

mtuc syabas pc 091007 charles santiago Klang MP Charles Santiago (right) said the line-up was “not acceptable”, stressing that it would be more balanced to have equal representation between Pakatan and BN and for the committee to have one co-chair from either side.
He also urged Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to give his “guarantee” that no elections are called until the committee is done with its work and its recommendations are adopted.

“@najibrazak needs to guarantee no PRU 13 b4 PSC electoral reforms recommendations are implemented. o/wise PSC smokescreen n PR exercise,” he said in a series of tweets.

Malaysia’s Parliament is ‘weak’

Teluk Intan MP M Manogaran questioned the need for an independent MP on committee, which, he stressed, should convene now and not wait until the start of the next Parliamentary meeting.

“Based on composition alone, there should be more representatives from Pakatan Rakyat from three as proposed,” he said, adding that while he welcomed the move, he hoped that the Parliament and public would not be hoodwinked by its formation.

“I am also worried as the Parliament (system) as it is now is structurally weak. I have seen many times the speaker play a role which is subservient to the executive. I am worried the PSC may turn into that.”

He also urged the formation of a royal commission of inquiry to investigate into allegations of foreigners being given identity cards as he had come across two cases of foreigner given ICs and asked to vote for Barisan Nasional in Penang.

“This shows that this is happening and an RCI should be formed or the PSC should look into this immediately,” he said, adding that Malaysian overseas should also be allowed to cast their votes in line with exercising with their democratic right.

EC must change its mindset

DAP Youth chief Anthony Loke, meanwhile, told off the Election Commission, saying the panel has no business in deciding the make-up of the committee.

Commenting on a Berita Harian report today quoting EC deputy chairperson Wan Ahmad Wan Omar, Loke said the senior EC officer’s statement was “uncalled for” and reeked of political mileage.

Loke acknowledged that the committee is open only to MPs, but stressed that it would still need to get feedback from the public and civil society groups such as Bersih 2.0 to make sure the committee’s recommendations would cover the interests of all Malaysians.

“If non-governmental organisations, especially Bersih (2.0), are not included in the committee’s consultation process, the formation of the committee would be meaningless.

“The EC needs to shift their paradigm in (thinking that) the electoral system only involves political parties and politicians. The electoral system involves every citizen and all parties should work together to create a clean and fair electoral system that would spearhead a mature democracy.”

  • 主办单位及民众一起点蜡烛为逝世两年的赵明福默哀示敬,左起刘诗美、赵亮辉、张念群、查尔斯、张秀华及赵丽兰。

(巴生17日讯)约200名巴生及班达马兰区市民参与巴生站的"赵明福烛光会",在追思会上抗议皇家调查委员会报告指赵明福"自杀"的结论,促中央政府以误杀或疏忽致死罪名提控三名反贪污委员会官员。

主办单位及与会民众促请中央政府根据律师公会的诉求,以误杀及疏忽致死来提控最后盘诘赵明福的三名反贪会官员,还事件一个真相。

这项烛光会由民主行动党巴生国会选区联委会主办,除了为已故赵明福声讨公道,同时为其他在反贪会及执法单位扣留室无故身亡的民众申诉不平。

赵明福的至亲,包括父亲赵亮辉、母亲张秀华及胞妹赵丽兰皆现身,参与烛光会。

大会当晚也举办"明福沉冤待雪讲座会",主讲人包括沙登区国会议员张念群、蒲种区国会议员哥宾星、巴生区国会议员查尔斯圣地亚哥、班达马兰区州议员刘天球和时事评论员黄进发。

在场者包括全民挺明福协调员黄业华、行动党巴生国会选区联委会主席何福强、班达马兰新村长刘诗美及巴生市议员西华杜来等。

多位主讲人当晚在演说中讲解调委会报告书与案件事实存有的诸多疑点,并促中央政府应根据律师公会的建议对付三名被点名的反贪会官员。

刘天球:报告诸多疑点

刘天球指出调委会的报告书存有诸多疑点,至今无法解释,令人难以接受。

他促中央政府接受律师公会的建议,以误杀及疏忽致死的罪名来提控三名盘问赵明福的反贪会官员。

张念群:坚持追讨真相

张念群指中央政府用人民的钱成立调委会调查赵明福案件,但调委会报告结论却指赵明福被自杀,毫无真相可言,令人难以接受。

"我翻查调委会的报告书发现许多证人口供与事实不符,如一些被刻意安排出现的证人,被疑是为反贪会洗脱罪名而出现。

"我们不轻易忘记这案件,坚持为赵明福追讨真相。"

查尔斯:对付幕后黑手

查尔斯质问:最后盘问赵明福的三名反贪委员会官员,到底对他做了什么?

"我们要知道这三名官员背后,是否曾受到他人指示,因为幕后黑手更应受对付。

"人民有人权,证人即使接受反贪会盘诘也不该受折磨。"

他说,只有撤换执政的中央政府,人民才能改变这一切。
