Bukankah lebih utama meninggalkan parti yang tidak dapat diselamatkan lagi ini?

Rais: Kawal rasuah Umno atau buka tender
Oct 21, 08 8:37pm
Jika Umno tidak mengawal amalan rasuah dalam pemilihan barisan pemimpinnya, lebih baik parti itu membuka tender dan sesiapa yang lebih tinggi bidaan akan menjadi ketuanya, kata Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim.

“Saya kira mereka yang menyumbang (politik wang), kalau begini lebih baik Umno itu adakan sistem tender, siapa yang lebih tinggi dia jadi ketua.

“Kalau begitu Umno ambil duitnya, siapa yang banyak duit buat bidaan, kan jadi bahan ketawa, tetapi hal macam ni kena dibincang,” katanya seperti dilaporkan Bernama.

“Politik wang atau korupsi politik tidak selesai sebab ia sudah menjadi
budaya di dalam Umno sekian lama. Cuma tak ramai yang mahu mengaku perkara ini berjalan.

“Lebih baik kita mengaku dan rakyat menghukum kita bersama-sama supaya orang ramai dapat melihat parti politik ini bersih dari amalan rasuah ataupun tumbuk rusuk dan penggunaan wang secara berleluasa.”

Dr Rais, yang juga menteri luar, berkata antara kekangan utama dalam membanteras gejala itu ialah ketiadaan bukti kerana pihak yang terlibat cukup licik dan licin memainkan peranan mereka.

“Masalahnya ialah bukti. Bukti orang memberi cukup sukar sebab pihak-pihak ini memainkan peranan licik dan licin.

Umno, kata Dr Rais lagi, tidak cukup berupaya untuk memantau dengan rapi amalan politik wang, justeru lebih wajar jika ia
diserapkan bawah bidang kuasa undang-undang negara, lapor agensi berita itu lagi.

Semalam anggota Majlis Tertinggi Umno itu dilaporkan berkata beliau diminta memberikan wang untuk mendapatkan undi bagi pencalonan jawatan naib presiden yang menjadi sasarannya dalam pemilihan, Mac tahun depan.

Beliau berkata “majoriti” ahli parti itu lebih berminat mengejar wang ketika kempen berlangsung sekarang daripada memilihan pemimpin yang benar-benar layak, lapor sebuah agensi berita.

“Kami didekati dengan berselindung sebalik bantuan dan sumbangan. (Tetapi) saya tidak bersedia (berbuat demikian), jadi anda lihat undi (pencalonan) saya tidak begitu banyak.

“Jika ada ingin turut serta (dalam perebutan jawatan), anda mesti mengiyakannya,” beliau dipetik sebagai berkata.

Dr Rais hanya memperolehi enam pencalonan daripada bahagian-bahagian yang bermesyuarat setakat ini, sejak 9 Oktober.

Beliau memerlukan 14 lagi sokongan untuk layak pertandingan.

To sin by silence when we should protest makes cowards of people - Emily Cox

Siphoning EPF money

On 'Why should Valuecap borrow from EPF?' Syed Shahir Syed Mohamud: MTUC condemns the government's move to bail out Valuecap to support the local stock market using RM5 billion from EPF, as the provident fund is the custodian of the workers' money and not some sort of ‘automated teller machine' for the government.
If at all the EPF were to lend its money to the government, it has to be under the condition that there be transparency and accountability in the activities for which the money has been purposed. We want to know who is doing what with the money that belongs to the workers. This is the hard-earned money of the workers, their retirement plan. How is this bailout plan going to benefit the workers? We also question the reason for this bailout. If the economic fundamentals in Malaysia are strong and reserves sufficient as has been stated several times by the government, then why is there a need to offer so much money to the GLCs? Second Finance Minister Nor Mohamed Yakcop should prove how the EPF would profit from this loan. Bernama had reported that Nor had given the assurance that the loan given out by EPF would reap profits for the fund judging from Valuecap's past performance. But where is the paperwork and calculations to show that this move will benefit the EPF? MTUC is concerned that the loan might be mismanaged or misused and this, in turn, would affect the returns for the contributors. Mere assurances are not enough. We want to proof that this RM5 billion will not go down the drain. (The writer is president, MTUC). Sharyn: The government wants to use our pension money to prop up the Malaysian stock market which is the playing field of the rich people. If so, the government must ensure that the EPF account holders - who are predominantly the poor to average citizens of Malaysia - be guaranteed all of our pension money with a compound 8% growth (interest). It's so selfish and sick of the government to use the poor's pension money to help the rich to make more money with all the risks taken by the poor/average citizen. We can better use the RM% billion loans to Valuecap for our children's education, shelter, medical bills etc. Why not get those rich people to prop up the share market instead? Why should they park their money overseas and gamble with our EPF money instead? Kumar14: Who is behind this Valuecap organisation? Why suddenly, this separate entity is allowed to access funds from the EPF? Are they capable enough to handle it or is it just another desperate and blind move? It has been a very infamous trend where the people's funds are channeled to a company for investment purposes and suddenly POP! the funds disappear and there is nobody to be held responsible but a RM2 shell company. Charge who? Sue whom? The RM2 company (just a registered name)? We have seen this many times. People in power and with connections allow such things to go through and reap/rob the people's wealth and then blame it on organisations which actually don't exist. What if a lot of EPF funds are looted via such scams and nobody is to be pointed at? Where will the government get the funds to replenish the EPF? The people are very bored, disappointed, angry and frustrated at seeing all these dumb and unaccounted for measures being allowed by the government with lame excuses. Please, somebody verify the true purpose, integrity and capability of anybody attempting to use the people's fund.
