Yesterday, I had asked Minister in the Prime Minister‘s Department Dato Wee Ka Siong two key questions with regard to his comments on MyEGand foreign workers which were reported by Chinapress.

The report titled “Wee said: Afraid that foreign workers population will exceed Chinese population, utilizing MyEG statistics to monitor the inflow and outflow of foreign workers” had quoted him as saying that the intention of the government of implementing MyEG online renewal of foreign worker permits was to allow the government to effectively monitor their movements whether coming into or leaving the country.

He also pointed out that their numbers already exceeded that of Indians and it was afraid that they could overtake the Chinese population too unless controlled.

I had questioned Wee on the reason given by him for implementing MyEG online renewal as it was never mentioned by the Home Ministry which had in a statement on January 10 clarified that the implementation was to check abuse by various parties and to shorten the application process to one or two days compared to two to four weeks and to reduce crowding at the Immigration Department’s counters.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Dato Wee Ka Siong was quoted in yesterday’s Chinapress Daily as saying that the intention of the government to implement foreign workers permit renewal via MyEG is to control the number of foreign workers in the country with effective collection of statistics on the inflow and outflow of foreign workers.

He was reported to say that the number of foreign workers has exceeded the Indian population in the country, and if the government does not have a good system to monitor and control the number of foreign workers, in future, the number of foreign workers may outnumber the Chinese population in the country.

Wee’s remarks are most puzzling and illogical.

HEIST OF THE CENTURY – How Jho Low Used PetroSaudi As “A Front” To Siphon Billions Out Of 1MDB!

Together with London’s Sunday Times newspaper, Sarawak Report has completed an in-depth investigation into the trail of the missing billions at the heart of Malaysia’s 1MDB (One Malaysia Development Berhad) financial scandal.

We have obtained access to thousands of documents and emails relating to transactions by 1MDB, including its initial joint venture with the little known oil company PetroSaudi International from 2009.

What the documents establish is that, in spite of copious official denials, the entire joint venture project was conceived, managed and driven through by the Prime Minister’s associate and family friend the party-loving billionaire tycoon, Jho Low.

Petang ini saya menghadiri jamuan rumah terbuka yang dianjurkan oleh NGO yang bernama BERTINDAK di Madrasah Tarbiyah di Gombak.

Saya terima Emel jemputan ini pada beberapa hari yang lepas, dan saya sebenarnya tidak tahu siapa dalam BERTINDAK. Saya membuat keputusan untuk hadir rumah terbuka ini selepas saya baca emel yang ditulis oleh Pengerusinya Haji Ishak Surin yang berkata ingin membincangkan isu pilihanraya Perbandaran Kuala Lumpur.

Bila saya tiba di Madrasah ini pada petang ini, saya baru sedar Haji Ishak ialah YDP PAS Kawasan Batu yang pernah mengeluarkan kenyataan akhbar pada 26 Februari 2015 yang menyeru Dato Seri Hadi Awang untuk mengosongkan kerusi Presiden PAS dan menggantikan Tuan Guru Dato Nik Aziz sebagai Mursyidul Am PAS.

Yesterday I took my DAP members to distribute mandarin oranges and my pocket calendar card to constituents in OUG wet market and the coffee shops near by.

This morning we went to United Garden to do the similar walkabout.

It was not that crowded in the coffee shops and markets compared to the days prior to Chinese New Year. some shops were even closed, This is because some shops were opened during the first few days of CNY, so they take a break now.

I almost finished doing my walkabout in all the morning markets in Seputeh constituency by now.

I have printed 5,000 pieces of pocket calendar to be given away when I do my walkabout. This is to ensure that I will at least meet up with 5,000 people during the CNY walkabout.

Some constituents showed me my last year pocket calendar which they have kept in their wallet. My calendar card is worth keeping, because I have put in many important complaint telephone numbers, such as hotline of DBKL, Police station, hospital etc………

Today I walked in to an Indian doctor’s clinic (Poliklinik United) at United Garden. The Doctor, Dr Ranjit Manocha came out to greet me. He is a friendly doctor, I told him that I have been coughing with phelm for a month, he immediately gave me some medicine to reduce the inflammation of my throat. Thanks to him. I hope I will get well soon, so that I can eat mandarin oranges :-))

(吉隆坡27日讯) 行动党全国副主席郭素沁说, 马华和民政必须针对巫统是否应该在丹州州议会支持 正伊刑法表态,而非以“伊刑法决定权在伊党” 来回避问题和转移视线。

她说,马华和民政的领袖通过大量的文告来抹黑行动 ,诬指行动党支持伊刑法,他们同时也高声呐喊反 伊刑法,但是他们却不敢制止巫统支持伊刑法。

“这清楚显示马华和民政在面对巫统时,只会接受和 协,但却不敢反对。”

According to the independent pollster, the latest decline in Najib’s support was rooted in Malaysia’s lagging economy, as well as the impending implementation of the GST in April. — File pic

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 27 — Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s approval rating as prime minister fell again in the latest Merdeka Center survey, dropping four percentage points to 44 per cent in January.

According to the independent pollster, the latest decline in Najib’s support was rooted in Malaysia’s lagging economy, as well as the impending implementation of a new consumption tax in April.

“The negative sentiments were largely driven by economic factors, such as concerns over high cost of living, the general condition of the economy, as well as concerns over the impact of the upcoming implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) on the public,” Ibrahim Suffian, who heads Merdeka Center, said in a statement accompanying the survey results.
