吴添泉:冀州政府通过官委议员方式委华裔代表入阁

转发分享

(亚庇28日讯)沙巴中华大会堂总会长丹斯里吴添泉呼吁以沙巴人民联盟组成的新届州政府,通过官委议员方式委任华裔代表成为议员并入阁,以显示州内阁团队的多元性和重视华社问题。

“选举成绩显示所有中选的华裔议员皆在野不在朝,州政府有必要关注州内第二大族群的华裔心声。”

他说,尽管由国盟、国阵和沙巴团结党,加上一些中选独立议员组成的新届州政府内,并没有华裔议员,但他希望和相信,州政府应该会以积极正面看待,通过施政来争取更大民心,而不会“冷对待”华社。

也是大马华总会长的吴添泉是针对本届沙州选举中,执政的沙盟内没有华裔中选议员,一旦州政府成立后,在政府行政和内阁内可能面对欠缺华人代表性,导致华社可能面对“冷落”的课题作出回应。

他说,沙盟所委派出的所有10名华裔候选人,以及其他政党如自由民主党、爱沙党、民意党和独立的所有华裔候选人在这次选举中皆败阵,而中选的9名华裔议员,皆属民兴党+阵容,分别来自行动党(5人)、民兴党(3人)与公正党(1人),显示出州内“华人在野”的最新格局,与之前的“华人在朝”布局出现了极大落差。

他说,一旦新政府首长明天宣誓就任,州政府成立之后,可以援引沙巴州宪法,另外委6名官委州议员,希望通过这个管道,能够委任华裔议员并进入内阁团队,为华社请命。

有关华人票走向,他表示朝野各造都必须尊重包括华裔在内,全体选民在选举中所作出的票决,从中反省和自勉,检讨和加强不足的地方,并提升素质和服务,争取更大民心所向,才是从政者应有的气度和态度。

吴添泉说,沙州人民再一次通过民主制度履行公民义务,在平和有序中投选出今后的州政府团队,希望中选者尤其是执政方面,能够珍惜和善用人民委托,履职为民,也为沙州的发展作出积极贡献。

他说,州政府也应该存异求同,尊重、配合和接受反对党议员提出的建设性看法,共同为沙州献力。

FCAS calls for nomination and appointment of Chinese representatives in State Cabinet

The Federation of Chinese Associations Sabah (FCAS) has urged the newly-minted Sabah People Alliance/ Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) state government to nominate some Chinese community representatives as state assembly persons and to induct them into the State Cabinet.

Urging this, its president Tan Sri T.C Goh said this is appropriate and necessary in order to have a multiracial representation in the State Cabinet and to reflect the state government’s concern for the Chinese community.

He said this is in view of the state election results which indicated that all the elected Chinese assembly persons are from the opposition camp, none is from the ruling coalition.

“The GRS state government must not neglect the voice of Chinese community which is the second largest ethnic group in the state,” he stressed.

He thus hoped and believed the GRS state government would take serious note of this aspect and exercise its collective wisdom to win the hearts and minds of the Chinese community, instead of giving them ‘cold treatment’.

Goh who is also the President of The Federation of Chinese Associations Malaysia (Huazong) said this while expressing his concern over the absence of Chinese elected representatives in the GRS coalition government; he feared that this may result in the Chinese community being neglected, after this.

He noted that, all the 10 Chinese candidates fielded by GRS and other political parties like Liberal Democratic Party (LDP), Parti Cinta Sabah (PCS), Parti Gagasan Rakyat Sabah (PGRS) had lost in the state election; the nine Chinese candidates who made it were from DAP (5 candidates), Warisan (3 candidates) and PKR (1 candidate). This new formation is obviously the complete opposite of the previous political scenario where the Chinese elected representatives were part of the ruling government.

He thus reiterated that, once the new chief minister is sworn in, and the state government is formed, it could then proceed to invoke the relevant provision under the State Constitution to nominate another six members of the State Legislative Assembly. He hoped the state government would seriously consider nominating qualified and capable individuals from the Chinese community and to induct them into the State Cabinet, so that they could serve the Chinese community.

Besides this, he also urged political parties from both sides of the divide to respect the decision and mandate of Sabah people in the recent state election, and to seriously reflect upon the election results and to strive to rectify their shortcomings and improve their services.

“This is the kind of right attitude and magnanimity that a true and respected politician should possess,” he stressed.

He also reckoned that it is the fervent of the people of Sabah that the new state government could make good use of their mandate to develop Sabah into a progressive and prosperous state.

“Likewise, the state government should set aside political differences, and respect and accept constructive views and proposals from the opposition elected representatives, so that everyone could all work together as a great team for the best interest of the state and its people,” he concluded.
