Guan Eng wants Yakcop to prove ‘attacks’ on economy

GEORGE TOWN (July 28, 2008) : Second Finance Minister Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop must clarify his statement and state who has been "attacking’" Malaysia’s economy, what methods were used and what can be done to avoid it, said Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.

Expressing shock over Nor Mohamed’s statement on Saturday alleging that the country’s economy faces "attacks" every 10 years either coincidentally or by "unseen hands", Lim said this was a very serious allegation.

"Penang government will fully support any move by the federal government to counter these alleged ‘attacks’," he said at the Little Penang street market here on Sunday.

He said Nor Mohamed must ensure his assertions are backed by facts, as such allegations could adversely affect foreign investors’ confidence in the country. Therefore, Nor Mohamed must show proof of such ‘attacks’, he said.

"We want to know who is ‘attacking’ us and what measures they are using to ‘attack’ us," he said.

He also wants the federal government to reveal the measures it could take to counter and face these alleged threats.

"This is a very serious matter because it impacts the economy of the country and livelihood of Malaysians," he said.

On a separate matter, Lim said the state government has applied for RM13 million from the federal government to start its heritage conservation programmes for George Town which, together with Malacca, has been inscribed as one of Unesco’s World Heritage Sites.

He said the state government also plans to ask for a RM200 million soft loan from the federal government to undergo a full-scale heritage conservation programme.

"We need to repair and renovate all the old, dilapidated heritage buildings within the heritage zone in George Town," he said.

Lim also commented on Pas spiritual adviser Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat’s suggestion that Umno and Pas be dissolved and a new party based on Islam be formed to unite all Malays.

"We should be heading towards a more united Malaysia with political parties taking the lead by example to remain open to all Malaysians regardless of race, religion or sex," he said.

Although he did not directly criticise Nik Aziz’s suggestion, Lim said a party that puts a limit to it by way of race or any other factor would not be heading towards the vision of uniting the people.

"We are a multi-cultural society, so we should be getting rid of boundaries. We should lean towards the national aspirations of a united society and try to be all-inclusive instead of being exclusive," he said.

He said a political party should be open to all Malaysians to enable everyone to stand proud as a nation.
