国盟政府没个明确方向救国救民: 行动党王宇航

槟州民主行动党台牛后支部主席王宇航于2020年5月2日(星期六)发表文告: 说好的“软着陆”VS催生剂之“提早大解放”人民适应不了国盟政府一再U转的政策 从4月12日,国盟政府允许理发店营业,到4月13日U转自己的决定; 再看看昨天5.1劳动节的大解放决定(同样理发店不被允许开放)。 我们几乎可以确定,这个政府根本没有一个明确的方向救国救民。随着“市场需求”而做出的决定,会否让国人深陷危险,败了这些日子待在家里的牺牲,临老功亏一篑? 本来说好的软着陆,如今怎么看都是政府硬弸弸的在打一支催生剂。就连卫生部也说“这是个集体的决定”,这话中话的隐意就是卫生部根本不认同这样的“提早”大解放,但有鉴于政府其他机关,比如突然非常权威的国际贸易及工业部,或是内阁倾向于大解放的决定,所以少数服从多数得到的结果 — 集体的决定。 我国自3月18日以来牺牲了日常生活和经济,为的就是健健康康全面的复出,而不是完全没有预防性的临时决定–提早大解放。纵观日本北海道的提早解封和如今日本的二度戒严,我国确确实实不可以掉以轻心,轻敌这个看不到的病魔。 我希望在朝的政治人物、部长们可以进言,认真看待这次的大解放和可能带来的反效果。这并非意味人民反对解封,而人民要的是卫生部和医疗专家所说的“软着陆”,小心翼翼的逐步解封各行各业,让社会适应新常态。要知道,国人根本还没有意识去认识和了解什么叫做新常态新作业,社会需要相对的时间来接纳并实行新常态。逐步解封各领域有助于国人有足够的时间去接受新的生活方式。如今的大解放,试问多少人懂得如何确保自身的健康安全意识?政府的机制,军警,还有各州各地方的相关单位是否能应付这突如其来的提早大解放? 再来,中小企业老板们最为关心的就是,大解放后员工们如果不幸感染上新冠肺炎恶疾,到底是政府还是各位老板们须负起一切医疗费用包括工作地点消毒等费用?网上有人询问国际贸易及工业部,得到的答案竟然是老板们得“自己顾自己”。这是让人难以接受的,毕竟政府仓促宣布的大解放,在未能适应新常态的期间,人与人之间的接触是不能避免的事情。总不可能如果有人不幸染病,老板们就必须负责,这种改观定论的说法。那试问老板们和员工们辛勤缴交的社会保险socso是要来做什么的呢? 首相在昨日的直播宣布,饮食业者必须记录堂食顾客的名字和联络。这听起来容易,实行起来是困难重重的政策,是否所有饮食业者和顾客都会配合?政府是否宪报公布新的法律来宪制所有人务必遵从?政府又如何有效监督与执法?国盟政府只管宣布自己想要的,却一再忽略了当中细则和商家们面对的问题,政府每每在宣布新政策后,留下的是一头雾水的商家老板和百姓。若谈及恢复经济为前提,确实是雷声大雨点小。 行动管治令期间,人民见证了政府的多次U转政策。人民不想看到一再U转的政府,更不想看到操之过急的政府。网上民调可以看到许多人民认同实施软着陆,逐步解封,而非如今宣布的大解放。 王宇航

假借卫生部名誉合理化国会召开一天 马华陈德钦应反问首相署部长: 行动党王宇航

槟州民主行动党台牛后支部主席王宇航于2020年4月28日(星期二)在槟城乔治市发表的声明: 为何假借卫生部名誉合理化国会召开一天的决定马华陈德钦应反问首相署部长 陈德钦应该感谢行动党林吉祥替卫生部解围,并联同行动党公开质问其国盟新政府的首相署部长达基尤丁,为何恶意假借卫生部名誉以合理化国会只召开短短一天的决定。 陈德钦日前发文告指林吉祥向卫生部确认是否劝告国会的召开决定乃是无聊的问题。作为在野党,为了扮演监督首相署部长达基尤丁的言论,而向卫生部再三确认是否对国会只允许召开一天的决定给予忠告,对于身为国会多年资深领袖的林吉祥而言绝对是其份内事。 而在获得卫生总监拿督诺希山的回应后,我国人民也证实了首相署部长达基尤丁确实假借卫生部名誉限制国会只召开一天的决定。陈德钦反应该感谢林吉祥扮演的监督角色,给予卫生部一个解释的机会,而非硬生生被首相署部长塞了一只死猫。卫生部在防疫期间尽心尽力,其崇高精神乃是举国人民有目共睹的。人民绝不会任由首相署部长或任何人诬蔑,或借卫生部名誉假传圣旨,而坐视不理。许多人民对于首相署部长推卸责任,诬赖卫生部的举止感到极度失望。 1. 陈德钦作为马华的领袖,为何没有阻止其同僚借卫生部名誉假传圣旨?2. 是否陈德钦也认同首相署部长达基尤丁不负责任的言论诬赖卫生部?3. 或是陈德钦也认为国会只召开一天的决定是根据卫生部的指示? 我希望陈德钦针对以上三个问题给予回复,因为以上问题也是广大人民想要了解的,尤其我国华人想要知道所谓自称代表马来西亚华人的马华,是否也与首相署部长言论共舞,联合诬赖崇高的卫生部。 如今乃是行动管治令期间,举国人民都在扮演自己的防疫角色,包括国会资深领袖林吉祥也正扮演其监督角色,防范任何政府官员或部长假传圣旨。陈德钦不应该政治化林吉祥的监督角色,尤其卫生部总监的回应证实了确实有人假传圣旨,假借卫生部名誉来合理化国会的召开天数。防疫期间,陈德钦应该专注在扮演他作为政府的角色,减轻卫生部负担,而非苟同诬赖卫生部的行为,害卫生部白吃死猫。 王宇航
