Your MP's Question of the Week #15

On 31st March 2006, Dato’ Seri Abdullah Bin Hj Ahmad Badawi launched the 9th Malaysian Plan for the period 2006 to 2010. Since then till today, the nation has only heard of announcements after announcements by the PM and there is no actual implementation of the plan.

At the mid-term review of the 9MP on 26th June 2008, Badawi said in Parliament that our economy had a growth of 6.1% but he didn’t tell the nation that Malaysia’s inflationary rate was well above 6.1%, which meant there was ZERO growth. Badawi also said that the Government will “spend another RM30 billion on its five-year development plan … to cover the costs of inflation, rural projects and increased food production.” Badawi also didn’t tell Parliament how the Government is going to raise the RM30 billion.

This extra expense to the original RM200 billion allocation is not a small sum and the rakyat has to finally bear the cost somehow – through higher charges and taxes.

Granted that the cost of implementing existing projects has risen as a result of the rising prices of materials and what-not, we hope the administration has in place firm ‘checks and balances’ where leakages can be prevented.

We still remember the Auditor-General Report where tools and equipment, among a long list of other items, were sinfully over-priced. It will be a great waste of public funds if the projects are not implemented properly and responsibly during such hard times faced by the rakyat.

So the question of the week is:

To ensure that the 9MP is executed effectively and efficiently without rampant corruptions to protect the rakyat’s money, which was raised through the recent petrol price hike, should the government have in place strict measures to ensure good governance, transparency and accountability at all times?

Soalan Mingguan WR Anda #15

Pada 31 March 2006, Dato’ Seri Abdullah Bin Hj Ahmad Badawi melancarkan Rancangan Malaysia Kesembilan (9MP) untuk tempoh 2006 hingga 2010. Semenjak itu, seluruh Malaysia hanya dengar pengumuman demi pengumuman oleh perdana menteri tanpa menyaksikan sebarang perlaksanaan.

Pada penyemakan pertemgahan 9MP, Badawi berkata dalam parlimen bahawa pertumbuhan ekonomi adalah 6.1% tetapi dia tidak memberitahu bahawa kadar inflasi melebihi 6.1% yang bermakna kadar pertumbuhan kita adalah sifar. Badawi juga menyatakan pihak pentadbiran akan “membelanjakan RM30 billion lagi dalam rancangan 5 tahun ini untuk mengatasi kos inflasi, projek-projek di kawasan luar Bandar dan penambahan pengeluaran makanan”. Badawi juga tidak memberitahu bagaimana pihak pentadbiran akan memperolehi RM30 billion.

Belanja tambahan terhadap belanja asal sebanyak RM200billion bukan jumlah yang kecil dan rakyat akan menanggung belanja ini menerusi kadar bayaran dan cukai yang lebih tinggi.

Memang benar belanja melaksanakan projek sedia ada telah naik kerana kenaikan harga umu dalam bahan mentah dan sebagainya tetapi kami juga harap pihak pentadbiran mengadakan kaedah semak dan imbangan di mana pengaliran wang keluar akan dicegah.

Kami masih ingat lagi Laporan Juruaudit Negara yang mendedahkan alat perkakas, yang merupakan sebahagian daripada barangan lain, telah dibeli pada harga yang sangat tinggi hingga bertaraf haram. Jika perlaksanaan projek masih tidak dibuat dengan betul dan secara bertanggungjawab dalam waktu genting rakyat kini, ini akan menyebabkan pembaziran wang umum.

Oleh itu, soalan minggu ini adalah …

Untuk memastikan 9MP akan dilaksanakan secara berkesan dan tekun tanpa rasuah untuk melindungi wang rakyat, yang diperolehi menerusi kenaikkan harga minyak baru-baru ini, patutkah pihak pentadbiran mengadakan kawalan ketat untuk memastikan pemerintahan baik, ketulusan dan amanah setiap masa?

阿強每週一問 #15

在2006年3月31日,阿都拉巴达维开始2006年至2010年的《第九大马计划》。知道现在为止,人民只听到楼梯响,不见首相有对这项计划作出什么实际的行动。

2008年6月26日是这项计划的中期检讨,巴达维对国会表示我们的经济成长是6.1%,可是他却没有告诉人民马来西亚的通膨率超过6.1%。也就 是说根本是零度成长。巴达维也说政府将会「另外耗费三百亿令吉在五年发展,以弥补因为通货膨胀、乡区计划和食物生产费用的提高而付出的而外费用。」巴达维 也没有告诉国会,政府如何凑到这笔三百亿令吉的款项。

这笔附加在原本的两千亿令吉的而外耗费不是一笔小数目,通过更高的收费和税务,这笔帐最终将会算在人民头上。

在因为材料和其他方面涨价的原因下,目前已展开的计划的费用将会跟着提高,就因为如此,我们希望当局采取更坚决的「制约与平衡」,以避免任何的疏失。

我们还记得《国家稽查司报告书》指出工具和器材,还有其他所列出的物件的采购价格完全超过市价多倍。如果这些计划无法正确执行的话,大笔的公款将被浪费掉。这是对目前面对经济困难的广大人民的一个责任。

这个星期的问题是:

为了确保第九大马计划有效执行,以及在没有贪污的情况有效的使用人民的公款,这些钱都是从最近油价上涨中获取的。是否政府已经准备严格的衡量,以确保在任何时候都保持良好的管理、透明度以及责任感呢?

  1. What implementation for the 9th Malaysia Plan? What PLAN? NO PLAN OK! The only 9th Malaysian Plan was to look after SIL and cronies only!

    Just to think of a PLAN for Bodawi is to give too much credibility to the 4th Floor and him! For them there is no PLAN.

  2. The answer is YES! YES! YES! to transparency & good governance. We need these slimy guys to be held fully accountable for all the side-deals & crony contract awards that they are planning for!

  3. What good governance, transparency and etc for this government? Such words are not within the vocabulary of the PM and his cronies.

    There was no implementation of the 9th Malaysian Plan. Just rhetorics only.This is what this BN government is all about.

    Now Najib is seen to be talking. Najib didn’t rule out contesting for the post for the UMNO president. Najib said that during the press conference with Sleepy Head. WOW! WE ARE DEFINITELY LIVING IN INTERESTING TIME.

  4. Badawi Administration is known for long on rhetoric & sloganeering and short on substance & action. LEgacy of Mahathirism that forbid other people from thinking and initiative.

  5. Badawi and his cabinet have no clue as to how to administer the country.

    The 9 Malaysia Plan is another ‘scam’ to hijack the people’s money into their own pockets. Look at everything around us, they are all unnecessary and the rakyat is paying for this sorry state for continuously voting these idiots into office.

    Especially this. Every patch of green and empty land is stupidly turned into ‘development’ with no proper planning. Sure lah, no project, how to ‘curi duit’ from the rakyat, kan?

    RM230 billion for 5 years is a lot of money! F##k these bastards. One day all of them will have to answer to God especially the sleepy imam. But before that they will all suffer all kinds of mishaps and health problems before they are buried (like Zakaria Deros, Nasimuddin, Eric Chia, etc.)

    Down with the Barang Naik party! Vote in Pakatan Rakyat!

    The answer to your question, YB Wee, is a big YES! YES! YES!
