KOTA KINABALU: “The new Sabah Cabinet line-up shows the YAB Chief Minister sensitivity to the issues in Sabah, it reflect his understanding of the matters in hand and how to resolve them amicably. The new Sabah Cabinet is inclusive of all the people in Sabah, which does not favour anyone community”, says Jimmy Wong Chee Khiong JP, Sabah Gerakan State committee member.
According to him there are no doubt new faces in the cabinet line-up, but most of these new faces are actually promotion for former assistant ministers. Members of BarisanNasional (BN) component parties are accommodated in the new Cabinet in accordance to the BN spirit. Each and every part of the community in Sabah is well represented, the ethnic trust building which is carry forward by the Chief Minister from his Halatuju Negeri Sabah introduced in 2003.
The Chinese community in Sabah must have trust and faith in our Chief Minister , who always have the Chinese’s community interest in his mind as proven by his good track record of assisting the Chinese schools, churches and temples. In addition to the Chinese ministers, the Chinese community is having many BN Kapitan Cina, JKDB, councilors etc to serve the community.
“Now is the time to get serious and get to work, not wasting time to accuse and counter accusing the outcome of the PRU13. The Prime Minister Transformation programs require that each and every Malaysian must come forward to realize Malaysia’s vision. Getting bogged down with street rally’s and street demonstration is just a waste of time and resource which benefits the losers not the people or the economy”, added Jimmy Wong Chee Khiong
There are additional demands on the time and effort of the new Sabah cabinet especially with the establishment of the East Sabah Security Zone (ESSZone). This is necessary to ensure the safety of the Sabah people from further encroachment by terrorist. Therefore instead of creating street rally and demonstrations, the people should rally behind the newly formed Sabah state Cabinet and ensure the developments in Sabah are carried out according to plans.

Current trends in Malaysian society
BY DR CHANDRA MUZAFFAR
OPINION: Current trends in Malaysian society do not generate much optimism about the future. Gleaned from the electoral landscape, there are two trends one should focus upon: one, associated with the ruling Barisan Nasional, specifically UMNO, the coalition’s pillar and the nation’s biggest and most influential political party; the other, linked to the Pakatan, mainly the DAP, the largest political party in the opposition. read more...
Knowing the truth - through a debate?
By Dr Chandra Muzaffar
OPINION: A public debate on 1MDB between a Member of Parliament who has been raising a lot of questions about it and the President of that state-owned company is not going to provide the answers that the rakyat are looking for. We want to know the truth and nothing but the whole truth about the activities of 1MDB and its present and past subsidiaries and how they are related to the 2.6 billion ringgit in the Prime Minister’s personal bank account. read more...
Long-term impact of the haze on Malaysian wildlife
BY DATO’ DR DIONYSIUS SHARMA - Executive Director/CEO WWF-Malaysia
OPINION: Uncontrolled fires across Indonesia, particularly within peatlands, have caused large amounts of smoke and haze to drift into neighbouring countries on almost an annual basis for 40 years. The haze is known to have negative effects on human health, climate, the economy and environment and yet, the perils of the haze have not been studied extensively and its impacts, especially on wildlife, remain unrealised or poorly understood. The haze caused by forest fires in Indonesia is likely to incur negative impacts on wildlife in Malaysia. read more...
