Only I have devt blueprint for Likas – Chin

KOTA KINABALU: Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate Chin Shu Ying said that he is the only candidate who lists down his development plans for Likas in black and white among the four candidates vying for the seat, and is confident that he can realize his manifesto.

Shu Ying said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak had made a lot of promises in his manifesto, and Malaysians would be blessed if all of them were fulfilled.

“We need good people’s representatives to supervise the government in ensuring all the election manifestos were implemented.

“If we choose a people’s representative who does not walk the talk, our nation will never be developed,” he said that during a dinner with church members here on Monday.

Shu Ying reiterated that his personal philosophy was do more, less talk, to go down to the grassroots level to understand the people’s livelihood and dare to speak up rather than succumbing to pressure.

He vowed that he would make the people’s interest his top priority and raise the people’s livelihood issues in the State Legislative Assembly.

“Among the four candidates vying for Likas state seat, I’m the only one who have a black and white list of the specific development plans for Likas,” he added.

With his capabilities, Shu Ying believes that he can fulfill his promises and make Likas a desirable residential address in the next five years.

Meanwhile, LDP deputy president Senator Datuk Chin Su Phin said the party is the only Chinese local party in Sabah within the BN coalition, thus he hoped that the people would give the party and BN Chinese candidates their fullest support.

He urged the people to vote for LDP’s five candidates for them to carry the voices of the people into the Parliament and State Legislative Assembly.

He said the government disbursed allocations to the churches in Sabah annually and would continue to do so to fund the various expenses of the churches.

Su Phin said the BN government was not perfect and even if BN had done well, there would still be dissatisfied quarters.

For instance, former Prime Minister of Singapore Lee Kuan Yew had contributed immensely to the development of the country but there was still voice of dissent from some.

Su Phin said our Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak had implemented various transformation programmes since taking over from Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, and Najib was the only Prime Minister who listened to the Chinese amidst disunity among the Malays.

“The Malaysian Chinese are blessed.”

Su Phin predicted that BN would still obtain the majority of votes from Malaysians and Kadazans, thus he hoped that the Chinese electorate in Sabah would vote for BN Chinese candidates, including his brother, Shu Ying, for them to effectively serve the people.

He pointed out that the opposition parties within the Pakatan Rakyat coalition, namely PAS, PKR and DAP, do not share a common goal or political philosophy.

Although there are disagreements among the 13 component parties in BN at times, but the parties would ultimately sit down and resolve the issues, he said.

Some people may wish to see a two-party political system in Malaysia, Su Phin said, in which Government A would be replaced by Government B should the former failed to perform.

“However, I do not think that the political scene in Malaysia is matured enough to implement a two-party system, unlike the United States, England or even Australia.”

On the Suluk terrorists’ intrusion into Lahad Datu recently, Su Phin said all the people should be united to fight against our common enemy, but the opposition parties had used the incident as an issue.

He said the opposition was not politically matured enough and would oppose to anything for the sake of opposing, which showed that our country has yet to implement a two-party system.

Su Phin said the people in Sabah were blessed under the administration of the BN government and urged the people not to blindly follow the opposition sentiment in Peninsular Malaysia, nor to believe the opposition’s promises.

He reiterated that LDP would continue to monitor the government and point out its weaknesses when BN wins the general election.
