PH CHAIRMAN SARAWAK AH CHONG HOW NOW?

 Your Big Boss have spoken.

So how now for you after all the promises in GE13? For a upright politician and a deputy minister if you are not in the same wave length as your boss you should know where the EXIT IS.

We didn’t ask you to but the Voters will know what to do with you and your comrades at the next Sarawak State elections due in 2021.

On oil royalty payment to Sabah and Sarawak, Dr Mahathir said the government now realised that giving 20 per cent to the two states would mean that Petronas would no longer become the international oil company that it was.

“So we have to appeal the Sabah and Sarawak governments that it is really not workable,” he said, noting that both states were also very concerned.

“They don’t want to kill Petronas but at the same time they want more money, so we’re trying to work out how we can give them more money without undermining Petronas’ own strength,” Dr Mahathir said.

Wonder what will your response be at your SUNDAYS Press Conference?

KUCHING: The Sarawak government has submitted a new formula to the federal government on revenue-sharing with Petroliam Nasional Berhad (Petronas).

Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg said today that Sarawak was aware that Petronas “was an international company but it doesn’t mean that you can deprive us of our revenue”.

I have another formula. And I have submitted it to them (Putrajaya). The formula while maintaining Petronas as an international company will find a way where Sarawak can take part,” he said when met by journalists after launching the state-level Women Day 2019 at Borneo Convention Centre Kuching here.

He made these remarks when prompted for comments on Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s statement that described the 20 per cent oil royalty for Sarawak and Sabah as “not workable”.

Abang Johari said: “We did not ask for the 20 per cent (oil) royalty. Pakatan (Harapan) promised the 20 per cent (oil royalty).”

On a note that the State Legislative Assembly (DUN) in May 2014 passed a motion to request the federal government for an increase in oil royalty from five to 20 per cent, he said: “Yes, because they promised. Then we said you promised, then we said we definitely want 20 per cent. But now that is a different story.”

In the Pakatan Harapan (PH) manifesto during the 2018 general elections, Sarawakians were promised an increase of oil and gas royalties from the present five per cent to 20 per cent.

Asked whether Putrajaya had endorsed the formula, Abang Johari reiterated: “I have submitted our proposal, our own formula.”
“It is (an) entirely new model which I believe won’t jeorpardise Petronas as an international company. We are the one who produce raw material for Petronas in terms of gas and crude (oil) particularly gas.

“So I have my own formula which is commercial in nature. Up to them (Putrajaya) now,” he said.

The chief minister said he could not disclose any more details on the formula as negotiations with the federal government were still ongoing.

He was quick to assert that Sarawak was standing firm on the new model, which he stressed would not jeopardise Petronas.

“Maybe the federal government may lose some revenue. But of course Sarawak government also wants revenue. It must be (a) fair formula,” added Abang Johari.

Dr Mahathir was yesterday quoted in a Bernama report as saying the government had realised that giving 20 per cent oil royalty would mean that Petronas would no longer become the international oil company that it was.

“So we have to appeal to the Sabah and Sarawak governments that it is really not workable. They don’t want to kill Petronas but at the same time they want more money, so we’re trying to work out how we can give more money without undermining Petronas’ own strength,” he told a dialogue session at the JP Morgan headquarters in New York.

“Spanner In the Works for Malaysia Day 2019”

Lim Guan Eng current Finance Minister would make a good Works Minister as he will always use the words” Works in Progress”

A Finance Minister who plays theory plus rheotoric politics and uses the blame game is no good for the country as a whole and investors would be put off immediately. It does seem that the country is not conducive enough would be a fair comment from would be foreign investments.

lge12When this article column  which we extract below was published in the STAR a widely read and circulated newspaper in Malaysia and online version https://www.thestar.com.my/  it gives a very bad impression. Am pretty sure the Council of Elders Daim Zainuddin will whisper something to his ears.

Extracted from STAR ,”In a press conference in Kuala Lumpur on Friday, Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng delivered bad news to Sabahans and Sarawakians.

Lim said the Pakatan Harapan (PH) promise to give 20% instead of the current 5% in oil royalties to the two states could not be fulfilled yet. The Finance Minister blamed the usual suspect, the 1MDB financial scandal, for the government’s failure to carry out the election manifesto promise. The DAP secretary-general said the 20% quantum had to wait.

Wow! Sarawak by the way is playing host to the Malaysia Day Celebrations 2019.

A voter said ‘After Sabah last year why didn’t they pick Kelantan (oh forgot Sabah and Sarawak are partners to Malaysia) or could they be now showing the might of PH as Sarawak elections will be due in 2021?”  

So is POLITICS today into the BLAME GAME? What will Sarawakians as a whole think of the PH Federal Government? Lim Guan Eng has all the makings of a Good Promiser but to execute his works in progress he will need to iron out what he promised prior to GE14.

Let’s rewind shall we and there was also the video which went viral.

Extracted ,PH told Sabahans and Sarawakians that it supported more autonomy for the two states: “In line with the spirit of the Malaysia Agreement and the ascension of Sabah and Sarawak with Malaya to form Malaysia…. Full autonomy on education and healthcare, 20% oil royalty and half of all tax receipts collected in Sabah and Sarawak must be returned to the states.

“They will be fully responsible for the administration and financing of all healthcare and education in their respective states,” Lim said in a video shot before GE14 which is still going viral among Sabahans and Sarawakians.

“So remember, 20% oil royalty, from the present 5%, 50% of all tax receipts, whether it’s corporate, personal or GST, return to the respective states.”

Sarawakians know how to judge and am sure that they will also show an EXIT DOOR to promises unkept and maintain the status quo ruling government but with some tweaking here and there. 

The SARAWAK VOTERS knows best and the Spanner in the works was officiated by our future Minister of Works on Friday 13th 2019 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friday_the_13th) who seems to choose the right words for the right time.

Oh! were we being sarcastic or a wee bit superstitious.You know better……
