'We beat Alam Flora wastage, Syabas' leakage next ( Malaysia Kini )

Posted: 07 Apr 2013 08:47 PM PDT

COMMENT The last thing anyone suffering extensively from the recent water cuts wants to hear is more excuses or people in power pointing fingers, blaming each other.
I won't pretend - this article has very clear views over who and what is behind these water cuts.
Nevertheless, the goal of this piece is more to argue - on the basis of empirical evidence, not mere rhetoric - that despite this unhappy mire, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

It occurred to me recently that one of the best ways to understand and contextualise the water problems in 2013 is to look at the rubbish collection problems in Selangor in 2012.

How Selangor beat Alam Flora

In 2012, the time came to renegotiate the contract between Selangor's local councils and Alam Flora.
These contracts were ,of course, remnants of the pre-2008 BN Selangor government. 
Two characteristics played a significant role in bringing Khalid Ibrahim to where he is today - financially, professionally, and politically.
The first is the ability to recognise when something is unjust and unfair. The second is a burning desire to do something about it.

The Alam Flora contracts were exactly that: unjust and unfair.
For purposes of simplification, let's imagine: let's say ultimately, Ah Seng is the man who collects the rubbish from in front of your house.

The rubbish collection problems last year can be boiled down to this question: how many layers of contractors are there between the state government and Ah Seng?

The simple answer before 2012 was: far too many. Any business man knows, the more the contractors and subcontractors, the higher the costs - after all, everyone needs a slice of the pie, correct?

Khalid was not having any more of this.
There was a fair price to be paid, and damned if he was going to spend one cent more of the people's money than was actually needed to get the job done. He insisted that Alam Flora lowered their prices.
Arrogantly assuming that Selangor couldn't possibly do without them, Alam Flora then decided to take a hardline approach and started playing some high stakes poker - refusing to budge and declaring their intent to defend to the death their high prices. 
NONEKhalid said that in that case, thank you very much Alam Flora, your services will no longer be required.
He then directed all the local councils to directly take over rubbish collection duties with immediate effect. From now on, there was to be zero to one layer/s between Ah Seng and his paymaster.

The fallout and transition pains were serious. Added to the steep (re)learning curve local councils had to endure in dealing directly with rubbish collectors, there were numerous reports of sabotage - mounds of rubbish mysteriously appearing out of nowhere, rubbish collectors being intimidated by gangsters, and so on.

It seemed like someone was trying to force Khalid back to the negotiation table on his knees.

They had, however, another thing coming.

As he has done most of his professional and political career, Khalid stuck to his guns, put his faith in the high level of professionalism he insisted on from civil servants, and rode out the storm. 
segambut dap mp community problems 130208 garbageThere were casualties, no doubt. Even the most hardcore Pakatan Rakyat supporter can be expected to be in a foul mood when garbage is piling up on his streets.

Wavering however, was not an option - there was to be no alternative to success. Every day, various committees vigorously pursued solution after solution for the never ending multitude of problems that kept popping up.

It did not happen as fast as everyone would like, but that success did in fact come - today, we hear little to no complaints about rubbish collection. Things have gone back to normal.

Well, not completely normal - the state government saved a staggering RM 100 million a year by eliminating Alam Flora as a redundant middle man.

These savings were immediately pumped back to the rakyat by reducing assessment rates for low cost housing by 25% - substantial savings for low income earners. 
Syabas the next Alam Flora?

What lessons from the Alam Flora case can we apply to what's happening with Syabas?

The first is the similarities in the crony experience. Both Alam Flora and Syabas were companies that got fat when BN controlled both the federal and state governments.
Cronyism, inflated contracts, non-adherence to concessionaire terms became the order of the day, and fat cats got used to opulent lifestyles.

It may surprise some to learn that water privatisation is an exercise deemed by the BN themselves in 2006 to be a complete failure.

azlanThe federal government passed a law called the Water Services Industry Act 2006, which was intended to deprivatise water industries throughout the country.
This process was successfully concluded in a number of BN-held states such as Malacca and Johor.

BN changed their position however, in Selangor after 2008. As usual, principles took a back seat to profits, and BN started singing a different tune.
Deprivatising the water industry in Selangor no longer became an option because it was seen by BN as surrendering a cash cow to someone who wasn't them. What ensued for the next 4 years was a stalemate. The existing laws make it such that Selangor cannot unilaterally take over Syabas, but also that Syabas cannot do very much without the approval of the state government. 

While unable yet to force the takeover, Khalid has also gone out of his way to block as much unethical profiteering by Syabas as possible - including by preventing absolutely unjustifiable hikes in water tariffs, which may have almost doubled by now otherwise.

Feeling the pinch, Syabas is clearly desperately missing the good old days, where it was easy to turn mind boggling profits at the expense of the rakyat and the state government.

NONEThat desperation has turned into desperate acts. As has been written before, when you control all the water taps, it's easy for directly or indirectly caused water cuts to conveniently happen at expedient times. I for one, am catching a whiff of bullying and intimidation.
Just like Alam Flora, Syabas looks like it wants to try a little hardball, and take a seat at that high stakes poker game.

No doubt, whenever water cuts happen, every BN politician and spinmeister will inevitably mention Langat 2 - as if this multibillion white elephant that will take years to finish will solve any of our current water problems.

Syabas and their BN sponsors have been whining about Langat 2 for years, swearing on their lives that it's not a waste of money or a kickback laced megaproject, but instead the only way to ensure enough water for Selangor.

Khalid's response? "The way Syabas mismanages everything, even 20 Langat 2's wouldn't solve our water problems."
Is there any reason he or the rest of us should mistrust Syabas or its management when it comes to question of what is and isn't a waste of money?

Firstly, Syabas' non-revenue water (NRW) stands at 33%. That means a third of the water it processes is unaccounted for and wasted (which would be just as high, regardless of new sources of raw water such as Langat 2).

Syabas has failed for years to bring this percentage down. How do other cities/states do in terms of NRW? Dhaka, Bangladesh - 29% (we should think about that, the next time we make fun of Bangladeshis), Eastern Manila - 11%, Germany - 7%, Denmark - 6%, and Singapore - 5%.

Syabas also spent millions of ringgit buying pipes from Indonesia. Sourcing such resources internationally was in the first place against the terms of the concession.
It did not help that these pipes were bought from an Indonesian company conveniently owned by the Syabas chairman himself.

NONEIf you have forgotten who that chairman is, you can always check the huge sign atop the Syabas headquarters, named - in grand Middle Eastern dictator style - after the chairman himself, Wisma Rozali (Ismail) (left).
This is the same ex- Umno Selangor treasurer who pays himself RM425,000 a month, and then claims that Syabas was not given enough money by the state government to fix its infrastructure. Khalid once remarked at a press conference: "If they have no money, they shouldn't be in business."
Indeed, to lend money to a company that has lost it consistently, you'd have to have the intelligence level of, well, the BN federal government.
Comparing the financial performance of Syabas and the federal government to that of the Selangor government, we see that Selangor has already completely outperformed them in every imaginable financial sphere - increase in financial reserves, elimination of debt, a balanced versus deficit budgets, as well as elimination of corruption, wastage and leakage.

Who would you rather have running the water industry?

No to bullying and intimidation

When it comes to business and public funds, Khalid Ibrahim is not the kind of man you want to have a staring contest with.

Just as it beat Alam Flora's wastage, the Selangor government has every intention of similarly beating Syabas' leakage.
Just like in the Alam Flora case, we may have to brace for a painful interim, but with a real hope of better water management for future generations.

NONEIn the meantime, the Selangor government knows, of course, that first and foremost, people must be supplied with regular water.
When water was cut, it was not accusations that were sent out first, but water trucks from neighbouring local councils.
Just like in the rubbish collection crisis, select individuals and committees were tasked to daily solution oriented responses to any crisis that emerged. When others try to force their hand, Selangor is ever ready to remind them that there are always other options available to the well-prepared. 
Ultimately, when what is at stake is the financial and natural resources that rightfully belong to the rakyat, as well as efficient, sustainable, and just management of the water industry for the good of our children and grandchildren, there will be no giving in to bullying and intimidation.

Najib on a Knife Edge

Posted: 07 Apr 2013 12:27 PM PDT

Wall Street Journal
Malaysia’s PM faces a struggle to stay in power.

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak dissolved parliament Wednesday, setting the stage for the country’s 13th general election, probably at the end of the month. According to the constitution the polls could be held no later than June 27, so Mr. Najib’s move was no surprise. The fact that he waited as long as he did is one of many signs that the Prime Minister faces a struggle to stay in power.

Part of the challenge comes from within his own party. After five decades in power, the United Malays National Organization is riddled with corruption and complacency. In the 2008 election, Mr. Najib’s predecessor Abdullah Badawi barely held on to a parliamentary majority, and afterward the opposition almost succeeded in tempting enough MPs to cross the aisle to form a new government.

That set the stage for Mr. Najib to take over the party leadership and premiership in 2009. He shored up his coalition by pursuing a program of economic and political reforms that tackled many of the issues that the opposition championed in 2008. This government deserves credit for responding to the public’s dissatisfaction with corruption, lack of domestic competition and repressive laws left over from the colonial period.

However, these reforms were limited, and while they were good for the country, they may not translate into a victory for Mr. Najib. The population is young and increasingly urban, and many of these voters think the pace of reform has been too slow, especially in reforming the system of affirmative action for the ethnic majority Malays. Meanwhile, the Malays out in the villages who benefit most from the preferences and cash handouts find the changes threatening.

The conservative Malay constituency is well represented by nationalist politicians within UMNO, including Home Minister Hishamuddin Hussein and Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin. Both are potential challengers for Mr. Najib’s position, so it’s no coincidence that his policies have been undermined from within the party.

The opposition coalition has its own cohesion problems that will probably come to the fore if it wins this election. But it has done a creditable job of ruling the four states under its control, undermining the government’s argument that only it has the chops to keep Malaysia stable and growing.

Malaysia’s system of holding back the dynamic Indian and Chinese minorities has turned it into a bastion of mediocrity in a fast-growing region. The country’s best and brightest leave because the cronyism and racial quotas in education and employment hold them back.

Mr. Najib probably recognizes the need to move faster, but he can’t afford to alienate his Malay base. In the coming weeks, UMNO’s list of candidates will tell the electorate much about internal party politics. If the Prime Minister doesn’t move aggressively to sideline the Malay nationalists and put his own reformers in place, voters may reasonably conclude that it’s time to give the opposition its chance to overcome Malaysia’s feudal past. A competitive economy ultimately demands plural politics.

PRESS RELEASE : Barisan Nasional Manifesto Lacks The Spirit Of Reforms

Posted: 07 Apr 2013 12:11 PM PDT

On behalf of KEADILAN, I welcome the launch of the Barisan Nasional Manifesto which took place with much glitter and fanfare Saturday night, ahead of the nomination day. As generally acknowledged, Pakatan Rakyat clearly has the upper hand for launching its Manifesto for the 13th General Election (GE13) much earlier on 25 February 2103, blazing the trail of a healthy political competition landscape. I wish to congratulate Dato' Seri Najib Tun Razak and Barisan Nasional for demonstrating openly their “endorsement” of Pakatan Rakyat’s initiatives and proposed measures of late. We are really flattered that even the theme of the Barisan Nasional Manifesto i.e. "Bringing Hope", (Membawa Harapan) bears a striking resemblance to "Pakatan the People's Hope" (Pakatan Harapan Rakyat).

Nevertheless, while labels are good as sound bites, I am convinced that political competition in particular during the election campaign period must revolve around policy matters and the people's programmes, apart from issues of the candidate's credibility and track record. As has been stressed by Pakatan Rakyat all along, the contest of ideas and policies should rightly be taken to a higher level through open debates that can be witnessed by the public in mainstream media to enable fair assessment by the people from all walks of life.

In this regard, Dato' Seri Najib's refusal to take up this challenge to a public debate on policies has greatly blemished his image as a credible leader and dampened the legitimate people’s expectations of a healthy political competition culture through a spirited discourse on issues and policies.
Barisan Nasional's persistent disregard for ethics and best practices of a caretaker government was further made obvious in last night's launching of their manifesto which was broadcast live via the nation's television and radio networks while Pakatan Rakyat’s rights to such media space have been denied. This constitutes a blatantly unfair electoral practice and an outrageous misuse of public resources by a caretaker government.

Nevertheless, I remain resolved to ensure that the GE13 will be a battleground for the contest of ideas and policies within the framework of achieving healthy political competition. I have perused the BN Manifesto and will present KEADILAN's relevant views from time to time. I have also directed KEADILAN's policy team to fully review it and present their feedback by tomorrow, 8 April 2013.
In general, I am not convinced that the BN Manifesto can comprehensively resolve the people's economic, political and social concerns and move the Malaysian economy forward to the next level of development.

Much to the chagrin of the people, the most obvious absence in the BN Manifesto is the spirit of reforms which is crucial to rehabilitate and reconstitute the current absolutely outdated system with a lot of defects and malfunctions. Let me reiterate the failure of the Barisan Nasional’s policy framework in recognising the importance of broad-based and holistic reforms from the socio-economic, structural, institutional, political, governance and law perspectives. In fact, Dato' Seri Najib still has not got it: Without a comprehensive reform agenda, efforts to raise Malaysia’s long-term competitiveness globally to be on par with other developed nations will be constantly constrained.

The BN Manifesto also lacks new ideas and is very short on details since many programmes have been rehashed and repackaged into something with a new look, in contrast to our People's Manifesto. More than 90% of the programmes listed are already known to the people and remain too general and lacking in specifics.

The absence of fresh ideas was so disastrous that Dato' Seri Najib had to swallow the bitter pill and plagiarise Pakatan Rakyat's proposals to be incorporated into the BN Manifesto in particular the lowering of car prices through a gradual elimination of excise duties by revamping the National Automotive Policy; issuance of individual taxi permits directly to taxi drivers and the price uniformisation of basic necessity items nationwide, one of major issues for the people in Sabah and Sarawak. It is clear that the BN Manifesto is half-baked and borne out of desperation while ours was crafted based on a sincere and earnest desire to alleviate the burden of the people. Committed to a taxation system which is fair and just as proposed by Pakatan Rakyat, I am convinced that what the people want eventually is a total abolition of car excise duties. As such, up to a 30% reduction as promised in the BN Manifesto is too little and too late.

The BN Manifesto is still cast in the perverse and outdated belief that the hearts and minds of the people can be bought. The major thrust of the Barisan Nasional campaign whether in the form of existing initiatives or manifesto offerings centres on the Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia (BR1M) which is to be upgraded into an annual payment of RM1,200 for families and RM600 for those unmarried. This proposal will cost RM7.2 billion a year that I am certain will continue to rise every year, consistent with the natural population growth and the Barisan Nasional’s constant failure to increase the household income beyond the qualification levels of RM3,000 for families and RM2,000 for unmarried individuals.

While I am not against any measures that will bring financial relief to the people, direct transfer payments such as the BR1M, Baucar Buku 1Malaysia dan Bantuan Persekolahan as contained in the BN Manifesto clearly constitute a short-term economic policy measure akin to vote buying without any solid proposals to solve the people’s fundamental socio-economic problems for the long-term (such as monopolies which cause market distortions and price hikes; wastages, leakages and corrupt practices in public finance management that reduce allocations to enhance the people’s well-being as well as other lopsided, oppressive and discriminatory public policies). Sadly, these costly cash handouts will prove to be an economic policy failure without effectively liberating the people from the shackles of economic hardship in the long run while increasing the burden on the nation’s coffers every year. .I am concerned that if this culture of overdependence continues over several decades, all efforts to boost the country’s productivity, value-add and competitiveness will be meaningless.

Proposed measures of war against corruption to eventually weed it out of the system in the BN Manifesto clearly form the nation’s butt of jokes as a source of public entertainment. Equipped with strong political will without any vested interests, only the Pakatan Rakyat administration for a new federal government will be able to significantly eradicate the corruption disease through its Dasar Banteras Rasuah Negara (DEBARAN) as detailed out in its manifesto.

I will continue to give constructive views in this matter and submit to the people's assessment and judgment as to which manifesto is better to bring about the much needed change. This process of comparing and contrasting ideas and policies will be the main platform of KEADILAN's campaign for the GE13, to be carried out by the entire leadership, election machinery and all our candidates.


KENYATAAN AKHBAR:Manifesto Barisan Nasional Tiada Roh Reformasi

Posted: 07 Apr 2013 12:06 PM PDT

Mewakili PARTI KEADILAN, saya mengalu-alukan pelancaran Manifesto Barisan Nasional yang dibuat semalam sebelum berlangsungnya penamaan calon. Sebagaimana umum sedia maklum, Pakatan Rakyat telah X mendahului Barisan Nasional dengan melancarkan Manifesto bagi Pilihanraya Umum ke-13 (PRU13) pada 25 Februari 2013 yang lalu, sekaligus merintis jalan ke arah landskap persaingan politik yang sihat. Saya juga ingin merakamkan setinggi-tinggi penghargaan kepada Dato' Seri Najib Tun Razak dan Barisan Nasional yang nampaknya banyak bersetuju dengan langkah dan cadangan Pakatan Rakyat mutakhir ini, sehinggakan tema Manifesto Barisan Nasional ("Membawa Harapan") pun menyadur tema Pakatan Harapan Rakyat yang digunakan oleh Pakatan Rakyat.

Pun begitu, saya yakin bahawa persaingan politik khususnya semasa kempen pilihanraya perlulah berkisar kepada persoalan dasar dan program untuk rakyat, selain kredibiliti dan rekod calon yang ditampilkan. Seperti mana yang ditekankan oleh Pakatan Rakyat selama ini, persaingan idea dan dasar harus diangkat ke tahap yang lebih tinggi melalui perdebatan terbuka yang boleh disaksikan umum di media arus perdana untuk diadili sepenuhnya oleh segenap lapisan masyarakat.

Justeru, keengganan Dato' Seri Najib Tun Razak untuk berdebat secara terbuka mengenai dasar mencacatkan imej beliau sebagai pemimpin berwibawa dan merencatkan budaya persaingan politik sihat yang dituntut oleh rakyat. Lebih-lebih lagi apabila Barisan Nasional tidak mempedulikan langsung etika Kerajaan Sementara ("caretaker government") dengan menyalahgunakan ruang masa penyiaran di platform media awam untuk membentangkan manifestonya sedangkan Pakatan Rakyat telah dinafikan hak yang sama. Ini jelas merupakan suatu amalan pilihanraya berat sebelah dan penyalahgunaan harta benda awam oleh sebuah Kerajaan Sementara.

Walau bagaimana pun, saya nekad untuk memastikan PRU13 ini menjadi medan persaingan idea dan dasar dalam kerangka membentuk persaingan politik sihat. Saya telah meneliti Manifesto Barisan Nasional dan akan membentangkan pandangan KEADILAN dari semasa ke semasa. Saya juga telah mengarahkan pasukan dasar KEADILAN untuk mengkajinya secara menyeluruh dengan tujuan memberi maklumbalas segera pada hari Isnin, 8 April 2013.

Secara umumnya, saya tidak yakin Manifesto Barisan Nasional secara menyeluruh dapat membebaskan negara dan rakyat dari kesempitan ekonomi, politik dan sosial sedia ada yang begitu mencengkam dan menghimpit. Yang paling ketara adalah Manifesto Barisan Nasional tidak mempunyai roh reformasi yang amat diperlukan untuk merubah sistem yang bobrok dan penuh kepincangan, seperti yang diharapkan oleh rakyat. Sangat jelas bahawa reformasi menyeluruh dan holistik dari segi sosio-ekonomi, struktur, institusi, politik, urus tadbir dan perundangan tiada tempat dalam kerangka polisi Barisan Nasional. Ingin saya tegaskan bahawa tanpa sebarang agenda reformasi yang komprehensif, usaha meningkatkan keberdayasaingan jangka panjang Malaysia di peringkat antarabangsa supaya setanding dengan negara-negara maju lain akan terus dikekang.

Pada masa yang sama, Manifesto Barisan Nasional ketandusan idea baharu dan kontang perinciannya yang mana banyak program telah dipakej semula, berbanding gagasan segar yang dibawa oleh Manifesto Pakatan Rakyat. Lebih 90% dari program-program yang disenaraikan sudah pun diketahui rakyat dan berbentuk terlalu umum tanpa sebarang perincian khusus.

Ketandusan idea baharu bermakna Dato' Seri Najib Tun Razak akhirnya terpaksa menelan hempedu dan menciplak beberapa dasar utama Pakatan Rakyat untuk disuntik ke dalam Manifesto Barisan Nasional terutamanya cadangan penurunan harga kereta melalui penghapusan cukai eksais secara berperingkat dengan merombak Dasar Automotif Nasional, pemberian permit teksi individu secara langsung kepada pemandu teksi dan penyeragaman harga barangan keperluan di seluruh negara yang menjadi salah satu isu utama di Sabah dan Sarawak. Berpegang teguh kepada prinsip percukaian adil seperti yang disarankan oleh Pakatan Rakyat, maka saya yakin harapan rakyat mahukan penghapusan langsung duti eksais kereta, bukannya dipotong pada kadar 30% sahaja seperti yang dijanjikan di dalam Manifesto Barisan Nasional.

Manifesto Barisan Nasional masih mencerminkan mentaliti lapuk dan kepercayaan usang Barisan Nasional bahawa hati dan pemikiran rakyat boleh dibeli. Tunjang kempen Barisan Nasional jika diteliti inisiatif sedia ada dan pakej tawaran manifestonya jelas berpaksi kepada Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia (BR1M) yang mahu ditingkatkan bayaran tahunnya kepada RM1,200 bagi keluarga dan RM600 bagi individu bujang. Cadangan ini akan melibatkan peruntukan sebanyak RM7.2 bilion setiap tahun yang saya yakin akan terus meningkat saban tahun sejajar dengan pertumbuhan semulajadi populasi dan kegagalan berterusan Barisan Nasional meningkatkan pendapatan bulanan isirumah. melebihi paras kelayakan sebanyak RM3,000 bagi keluarga dan RM2,000 bagi individu bujang.

“Direct transfer payments” seperti BR1M, Baucar Buku 1Malaysia dan Bantuan Persekolahan yang terkandung dalam manifesto Barisan Nasional jelas merupakan langkah dasar ekonomi jangka pendek untuk meraih undi tanpa cadangan ampuh untuk menyelesaikan permasalahan sosio-ekonomi asas rakyat untuk jangka masa panjang seperti monopoli yang menyebabkan herotan pasaran dan kenaikan harga; ketirisan, pembaziran dan amalan korup dalam pentadbiran kewangan kerajaan yang mengurangkan peruntukan bagi kebajikan rakyat serta dasar-dasar kerajaan lain yang berat sebelah, menekan rakyat dan bersifat diskriminasi. Yang lebih mendukacitakan ialah apabila pemberian tunai berkos tinggi ini akan terserlah sebagai suatu polisi ekonomi yang gagal tanpa membebaskan rakyat dari belenggu kesempitan hidup secara efektif pada jangka masa panjang sedangkan beban kepada perbendaharaan negara akan terus meningkat saban tahun. Saya khuatir sekiranya budaya kebergantungan berlebihan ini dibiarkan berterusan selama beberapa dekad, maka segala usaha untuk meningkatkan produktiviti, nilai tambah dan keberdayasaingan negara akan menjadi sia-sia.

Tawaran langkah-langkah untuk memerangi dan seterusnya menghapuskan gejala rasuah di dalam Manifesto Barisan Nasional jelas merupakan suatu lelucon atau lawak jenaka sebagai bahan hiburan rakyat. Berbekalkan kesungguhan politik yang jitu tanpa kepentingan peribadi, hanya pentadbiran Pakatan Rakyat bagi kerajaan pusat yang baharu sahaja yang mampu membanteras secara signifikan wabak rasuah melalui Dasar Banteras Rasuah Negara (DEBARAN) seperti yang diperincikan dalam manifesto PRU13nya.

Saya akan terus menghuraikan kritikan membina mengenai perkara ini dan menyerahkan kepada rakyat untuk mengadili keupayaan Manifesto Pakatan Rakyat dalam melaksanakan agenda perubahan seperti yang diimpikan rakyat berbanding Manifesto Barisan Nasional. Proses perbandingan idea dan dasar ini akan menjadi platform utama kempen KEADILAN di dalam PRU13 dengan melibatkan keseluruhan pimpinan, jentera pilihanraya dan semua calon.

Pada 8 Mac 2008, negara telah matang. Rakyat Malaysia bersama-sama telah memutuskan bahawa mereka tidak lagi akan dipandang ringan dan mahukan perubahan. Perubahan tidak datang dengan mudah apabila ramai pengundi ditakutkan oleh pembohongan yang diputar belit oleh Barisan Nasional bagi menghadapi pilihanraya umum 2008

Akhirnya penipuan-penipuan hanya boleh bertahan begitu lama dan orang ramai mengambil balik hak-hak mereka apabila mereka dengan berani mengundi Pakatan Rakyat ke dalam kuasa. Lima tahun kemudian, Pulau Pinang telah bertukar menjadi lebih baik dan kunci bagi perubahan itu sentiasa adalah anda semua, rakyat Malaysia.

Kami berusaha untuk menjadi sebuah kerajaan rakyat boleh tuntut dengan bangganya sebagai kepunyaan sendiri. Kami tahu bahawa tanpa rakyat, perjuangan kita akan menjadi sia-sia. Disebabkan itu sekarang, di pusingan terakhir bagi Pilihanraya Umum ke-13, kami sekali lagi mengharapkan sokongan anda semua.

Ini ialah satu perjuangan yang bukan sahaja masa depan Pulau Pinang tetapi juga demi masa depan Malaysia. Pulau Pinang akan menetapkan piawaian untuk seluruh Malaysia.

Malah, selepas mejadi kerajaan di Pulau Pinang, kerajaan persekutuan bukan sahaja gagal untuk menunjukkan kerendahan hati tetapi sebaliknya telah menjadi lebih sombong . Pulau Pinang telah diabaikan walaupun membayar salah satu daripada cukai pendapatan tertinggi di negara ini. Inilah mengapa gambaran yang lebih besar ialah pertempuran kita untuk Malaysia melalui Pulau Pinang dan sekaligus untuk semua.

Kita akan buktikan bahawa Pakatan Rakyat mampu mentadbir kerajaan persekutuan serta kerajaan negeri. Kita telah pun membuat perubahan di Pulau Pinang, sekarang marilah kita bersama-sama membawa perubahan tersebut ke seluruh Malaysia demi masa depan kita dan anak-anak kita.

Percaya dan yakinlah, Kemajuan dan ekonomi akan tercapai sekiranya rakyat menguburkan UMNO dan BARISAN NASIONAL  dari pentadbiran negara. Rakyat dapat merasai perbezaan antara Pakatan Rakyat dan Barisan Nasional.

Pakatan Rakyat Kuat, Rakyat Selamat.
Ayuh tekadkan azam menuju Putrajaya
Asalkan Bukan Umno - Anything But Umno
