PH will deliver, fulfil its electoral promises – See

Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Sarawak vice chairman See Chee How said the criticisms and negative comments of politicians from the opposite camps pertaining to the oil royalty issue are normal and Pakatan Harapan (PH) leaders must learn to take them in their stride.

In acknowledging that there are a lot of misunderstandings on the issue, See said what matters is what PH can deliver to fulfil the hope of all Sarawakians for the betterment of Sarawak.

“For the first time in 43 years, since 1976, the Pakatan Harapan federal government is taking steps to deliver more than five per cent oil royalty to Sarawak, for the exploitation and development of our oil and gas resources within Sarawak’s territory,” he said in a press conference here today.

In stressing that PH has not renegaded its electoral pledge “to increase petroleum royalty to Sarawak and Sabah to 20 per cent or equivalent”, See said PH has now taken the first steps to deliver the promise and he is really happy for that.

For that, See thanked Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s leadership and Minister of Economic Affairs Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali who has been tasked and is setting in motion the necessary acts to realise the delivery of this momentous promise.

“While it is true that the 20 per cent from net profit, adding to the five per cent royalty is still short of the ’20 per cent or equivalent’, but no one can deny the fact that the PH government is now on the right track to deliver more for Sarawak.

“That, I am proud of the new PH federal government. Comparing it with the 55 years reign of Barisan Nasional (BN) and the 43 years that the regime of Petroleum Development Act 1974 and Petronas exercised its full authority over our oil and gas, yet the compensation for our petroleum rights remained at five per cent.”

See said: “When the BN and now Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) leaders are pointing their fingers at our PH leaders, please understand that they have four fingers pointing back at themselves.

“For 43 years, they were submissive to the condescending Umno-led BN federal government and had made no attempt to fight for more equitable share and distribution of petroleum wealth for Sarawak.

“For them to waste the opportunities over the last four decades and to criticise the PH federal government when they are to deliver more for Sarawak and Sarawakians, these BN and GPS leaders are running scared, or they are being pathetic at best.”

See said he has full confidence in the PH government in delivering equitable petroleum revenue to Sarawak, for Sarawak’s development needs.

“With the promise of the 20 per cent royalty or equivalent I believe there will be mechanism and institutional changes to ensure that more Petronas projects in Sarawak will be undertaken by Sarawakian companies and corporations, instead of allowing certain politically-related or privileged companies to dominate the works.”

He assured the people that PH will deliver and fulfil its electoral promises.

  1. Royal families must be above politics. If they indulge in it, meaning that they are taking a side, they must expect to be opposed by the other side and not immune to criticism by the rakyat. There is no quicker way to see the end of royal households than for them to indulge in politics. For example, if you support a kleptocratic government who stole and subjected the people to abuse using draconian laws, you can expect anger from the people.

  2. Malaysians mostly are so fed up with the racist antics and corruption scandals of UMNO/BN that they are going to be quite forgiving despite HARAPAN not meeting many of the promises in the manifesto. They just wanted to get rid of BN and hope that HARAPAN can do better as can be observed in PENANG and SELANGOR.

    • Same with MCA. Chew Mei Fun, can we ask you a couple of simple straightforward questions; 1. Where was MCA when the term Bumiputra was coined? 2. Did MCA ever raise, take a stand or question the many issues related to the 1MDB scandal? Unless you can answer the above questions satisfactorily, do you think you possess the moral ground to comment and question Lim Guan Eng? How can Tan Chee Teong, if elected, play a ‘check and balance’ role against corruption and abuse of power when MCA as a party had failed to do that throughout its long tenure in the BN coalition?

  3. PH government must do the following:
    1) Duplicate the anti-corruption system, nuts & bolts from Hong Kong, S’pore, etc. and haul up ALL wrong doers without fail, no need singsong and all that, then rats and lembu will behave;
    2) use TV, social media, radio, etc to modify behaviour of general public to improve work ethics, ban mixing of religion with politics, etc. You need capable, committed leaders and expats to do the job, not goons;
    3) See how to stop and reverse people from being impregnated with wayward ‘doctrines’ from various toxic sources;
    4) Pity the young who have to go thru stupid & rotten education system – you need brainy & committed leaders to start it all over again..

  4. Najib put RM 2.6 billion of money belonging to the poor into his personal account. Najib said he got a gift from a dead King of Saudi without producing and showing to the rakyat proof of the payment. He asked security guards to steal RM 3.5 million meant for the poor stashed in his office for him.
