Tambahan RM2 bilion dalam peruntukan Belanjawan 2022 akan bantu menyatupadukan Malaysia: Setiausaha Agung DAP Guan Eng

Menggunakan sentimen perkauman atau ekstremis untuk mewajarkan pengagihan peruntukan kerajaan bukan sahaja akan memecahbelahkan malah membawa kepada kronisme, rasuah dan salah guna kuasa terhadap penggunaan dana dan sumber kerajaan.

Tambahan RM2 bilion dalam peruntukan Belanjawan 2022 untuk Sabah, Sarawak, Bumiputera dan bukan Bumiputera akan membantu menyatupadukan Malaysia dan membuktikan Keluarga Malaysia bukan sekadar slogan kosong.

Ahli Parlimen PAS menentang cadangan DAP dengan mendakwa bahawa adalah tidak adil bagi kumpulan bukan Bumiputera untuk turut mendapat tambahan RM500 juta kerana mereka hanya terdiri 30% daripada penduduk dan terdapat lebih ramai Bumiputera yang miskin.

DAP kesal Ahli Parlimen PAS terus menentang peruntukan tambahan itu bukan atas dasar rasional ekonomi tetapi atas dasar kaum. PAS tidak mengendahkan rasa tidak senang hati bukan Bumiputera bahawa walaupun membentuk 30% daripada penduduk, mereka hanya menerima RM345 juta atau 0.1% daripada Belanjawan 2022 yang berjumlah RM332 bilion.

DAP tidak membantah peruntukan RM11.4 bilion untuk Bumiputera tetapi menggesa peruntukan yang lebih dan adil untuk Sabah, Sarawak dan semua rakyat Malaysia.


使用种族主义或极端主义情绪来为政府的资源分配做辩护,不仅会造成分裂,还会导致用人唯亲、造成贪污腐败和滥用政府资金和资源的弊端。

在2022 年财政预算案中,为沙巴、砂拉越、土著和非土著追加20亿令吉的拨款,将有助于团结大马,并证明“大马一家”不是一句空洞的口号。

伊斯兰党议员反对行动党的建议,声称非土著也获得额外的5亿令吉是不公平的,因为他们只占人口的30%,事实上还有更多贫穷的土著等待帮助。

民主行动党感到遗憾的是,伊党议员持续反对额外拨款,他们的反对不是基于经济理由,而是基于种族因素。伊党忽略非土著在总值3320亿令吉的2020年财案中只获得3亿4500万令吉或0.1%的拨款。

行动党并不反对政府拨款114亿令吉给土著,但促请政府可为沙巴、砂拉越和所有马来西亚人提供更多和更公平的拨款数额。


Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 25.11.2021:

A RM2 Billion Increase In 2022 Budget Allocations For Sabah, Sarawak, Bumis And Non-Bumis Will Help To Unite Malaysia And Prove That Keluarga Malaysia Is Not An Empty Slogan.

Government allocations based on needs can provide both socio-economic justice, effective outcomes and unite the people. Using racist or extremist sentiments to justify the distribution of government allocations will not only be divisive but also lead to cronyism, corruption and abuse of power on the use of government funds and resources.

A RM2 billion increase in 2022 Budget allocations for Sabah, Sarawak, bumis and non-bumis will help to unite Malaysia and prove that Keluarga Malaysia is not an empty slogan. Giving the four critical sectors an extra RM500 million each or an  additional RM2 billion Budget allocations amounts to  0.1% of the Budget deficit.

The additional RM 2 billion on top of the RM332 billion 2022 Budget will not materially affect the Federal government debt or Budget deficit of 6.5% this year and 6% next year, but may be critical to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic and economic recession. DAP regrets that PAS MPs continue to oppose the additional allocations not on the basis of economic rationale but on race. PAS MPs oppose DAP’s suggestion by claiming it is not fair for non-bumis to also get an extra RM500 million since they only comprise 30% of the population and they are more poor bumis.

PAS continues to use racism and extremism as political weapons to gain support by rejecting allocations to non-bumis. PAS ignores the unhappiness of non-bumis that despite making up 30% of the population, they received only RM345 million or 0.1% of the 2022 Budget of RM332 billion. DAP does not object to the RM11.4 billion allocation for bumis but urges more and fairer allocations for both Sabah, Sarawak and all Malaysians. Using racist or extremist sentiments in Budget allocations will not help in saving lives and livelihood of the poor and businesses, especially SMEs.

There is no doubt that in percentage terms, Sabah and Sarawak received less under the 2022 Budget as compared to PH’s 2020 Budget. Development expenditure in the 2022 Budget was increased to RM75.6 billion as compared to RM56 billion in PH’s 2020 Budget. However, Sabah still received the same amount of RM5.2 billion development expenditure in the 2022 Budget as PH had provided for in the 2020 Budget.

In other words, Sabah was worse off in receiving 6.9% of development expenditure under the 2022 Budget as compared to 9.3% under PH’s 2020 Budget. If Sabah were to be given the same 9.3% of development expenditure in the 2022 Budget that PH had provided for in the 2020 Budget, then Sabah should be receiving RM7 billion and not RM5.2 billion in the 2022 Budget.
