An Open Letter to Tun Dr Mahathir on MySalam

An Open Letter to Tun Dr Mahathir on MySalam

Dear Tun Dr Mahathir,

Three weeks ago, a 48 year old lorry driver with stage 4 cancer of the colon came to see me as he was in financial distress. He had been the sole breadwinner and family finances were deeply in the red ever since his diagnosis about 2 months ago. As he was a BRIM recipient in 2018, I downloaded the application forms for MySalam and filled them for him (as I had made the clinical diagnosis of Ca Colon with obstruction before referring him to Ipoh GH. Applying to the GH to fill up the forms would have taken another 6 to 8 weeks). The reply from MySalam whatsapped to him after a week was – . . dukacita dimaklumkan bahawa tuntutan penyakit kritikal anda telah ditolak disebabkan: Kemasukan hospital bukan kerajaan. Salah satu syarat tuntutan adalah penyakit mestilah didiagnos di hospital kerajaan . . .

This Tun, is the DNA of insurance companies – deny liability first and try and turn people off. This could be one of the reasons that as of 22/7/2019 just over RM 1 million had been paid out under the MySalam Scheme – comprising 108 approved claims for critical illnesses (RM 864,000) and 941 approved claims for hospitalization (RM50 per day for a maximum of 14 days). These figures are from the Ministry of Finance.

Tun, we paid Great Eastern RM 400 million to cover the B40 population for a year. Looks like Great Eastern will pay out less than RM 3 million for this year! Clearly the rakyat are not getting our money’s worth.

This is precisely why the PSM wrote to YB Lim Guan Eng in November 2018, and again in January 2019 urging him to consult other parties, do a proper actuarial study and consider other alternatives such as using Great Eastern’s payment of RM 2 billion to defray the co-payments required of patients going to government hospitals. However YB Lim, in his wisdom, didn’t engage us – didn’t even get one of his staff to meet up with us to get our views. That was when we sent a Memorandum endorsed by 40 organisations to you (20/3/2019), reiterating the same points.

Well Tun, the performance of MySalam over the past 6 months shows that the largest beneficiary is Great Eastern itself which received a payment of RM 400 million for insurance cover for the B40 population for 2019, but will likely only pay out RM 3 million or so to the Malaysian public for 2019.

We would like to urge you to set up an independent committee to look into the MySalam scheme and if necessary call it off, and channel the RM 2 billion to the Ministry of Health to help patients with their co-payments required of them in Government Hospitals. Getting the opinions of the MMA, the MOH and citizen groups working on health related issues would be a good idea too.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Jeyakumar Devaraj,

Chairperson, Socialist Party of Malaysia (PSM)

Build cheaper housing to cater to local demand, says ex-Penang exco

The need to resort to evicting residents from public housing schemes (PPR), coupled with the high number of applicants for such houses, is a clear manifestation of insufficient supply of such units compared to their demand, said former Penang executive councillor Toh Kin Woon.

Speaking at a workshop titled ‘Understanding and addressing housing issues in Penang’ yesterday, Toh said another issue is the inability of the B40 or M40 groups to buy houses, apartments or flats.

“In the market, of course, there is no shortage of housing. Instead, there is an overhang or oversupply of housing as reported by many property companies.

“This gives rise to the paradox of an overhang co-existing with unsatisfied demand for house ownership,” Toh said during his opening speech at the event organised by the People’s Housing Network, a coalition of local NGOs, including Aliran, Suaram and Parti Sosialis Malaysia

The event was attended by some 50 participants.

Last month, 22 Taman Manggis public housing residents were evicted from their units. They staged a week-long sit-in at Komtar, which houses state government offices, until they were offered alternative housing.

Some of the residents were no longer eligible to live in the units as their monthly incomes had exceeded the limit for such housing, while others failed to pay their rent, married foreigners, or sublet their units.

Penang exco Jagdeep Singh Deo had noted that the waiting list was long for such units.

However, Housing and Local Government Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin said this matter could be resolved by identifying public housing projects to be built in locations such as Gelugor, Teluk Kumbar and Balik Pulau.

Oversupply of expensive houses

Toh said the problem lies in a huge supply of highly priced houses.

Such high prices are due to high costs of land and construction and “desire for maximum profits”, he added.

“In contrast, the capacity of potential house buyers to buy such properties has been restrained by their limited purchasing power.

“House buyers have a need for houses, but such a need has not been backed by adequate buying power. This is obviously a market failure which perhaps requires state intervention,” Toh said.

“Such limited purchasing power is due to a lack of adequate savings to pay the initial down payments, which is exacerbated by the difficulty of many in getting bridging loans from financial institutions,” he added.

“Building properties in far-off places, but without adequate supporting and complimentary services such as convenient public transportation, may not attract buyers, even if they are within their means to buy,” he stressed.

Rethinking housing supply

Toh asked whether the housing supply should be left only to markets, and be driven almost exclusively by the profit motive without any regard for the social motive of housing for the poor.

He further queried if the state should step in by directly providing social housing, either for rental or purchase, such as through building more PPR units complete with social amenities and a strong regulatory and enforcement framework.

“Can housing provision be planned in isolation from public transportation and the creation of growth and job centres nearby?” asked Toh, who was former Gerakan Machang Bubok assemblyperson.

“What about issues of financing such as extension of loans by financial institutions, cross-subsidies, public sector subsidy of private sector provision?

“How about in-situ development of existing houses through public subsidy or redevelopment by private house owners, rather than resorting to forced evictions?” he added.

 

Kelewatan kelulusan kewarganegaraan rampas peluang hidup seperti biasa

Kelewatan kelulusan kewarganegaraan rampas peluang hidup seperti biasa

oleh Dr Jeyakumar Devaraj

Merujuk kepada kenyataan Timbalan Menteri Dalam Negeri Mohd Azis Jamman baru-baru ini yang mengatakan bahawa ibu bapa harus bertanggungjawab terhadap masalah yang melibatkan kanak-kanak tanpa dokumen, di mana beban untuk pembuktian anak-anak ini terletak di bahu ibu bapa tersebut, bukannya tanggungjawab kerajaan.

Walaupun kita bersetuju bahawa ibu bapa harus bertanggungjawab tetapi pada masa yang sama, pihak Bahagian Kewarganegaraan Kementerian Dalam Negeri (KDN) juga harus mempercepatkan proses permohonan kewarganegaraan, terutamanya bagi kes-kes di bawah peruntukan Perkara 15(A) Perlembagaan Persekutuan. Kini, kesemua permohonan ini ditangani oleh Menteri Dalam Negeri dan ianya mengambil masa yang lama untuk maklum balas.

Untuk mempecepatkan proses, kes-kes ini memerlukan pengubahsuaian prosedur operasi standard (SOP) ataupun tatakerja pihak Jabatan Pendaftaraan Negara (JPN) dan KDN. Ini kerana memandangkan Menteri Dalam Negeri sibuk dengan pelbagai urusan lain, maka kebanyakan kes mengambil masa lebih daripada satu tahun untuk menerima maklum balas. Ini merupakan masalah kepada pihak pemohon kerana permohonan di bawah Perkara 15(A) perlu dibuat sebelum seseorang kanak-kanak itu mencapai umur 21 tahun. Setiap kali permohonan ditolak, tiada sebab diberikan, para ibubapa hanya dinasihatkan untuk memohon semula, dan akhirnya terpulang pula kepada jasa baik Menteri!

Oleh yang demikian, Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) mencadangkan bahawa kita memerlukan SOP jelas yang menurunkan kuasa kepada pihak JPN untuk menyelesaikan kes-kes ini pada peringkat pentadbiran JPN sendiri mengikut SOP yang jelas.

Cadangan polisi PSM adalah seperti berikut:

1. Kanak-kanak dengan ibu yang bukan warganegara Malaysia dan tidak didaftarkan perkahwinan dengan bapa mereka yang berwarganegara Malaysia

Masalah pertama adalah tatakerja JPN sekarang tidak mengikuti peruntukan yang terkandung dalam Seksyen (1)(a), Bahagian II, Jadual  Kedua Perlembagaan Persekutuan yang menyatakan bahawa “tiap-tiap  orang  yang  lahir  di  Persekutuan  dan  sekurang-kurangnya seorang  daripada  ibu  bapanya  pada  masa  kelahiran  itu  seorangw arganegara  atau  bermastautin  secara  tetap  di  Persekutuan” ialah warganegara.

Sebaliknya alasan yang digunakan sejak zaman kerajaan Barisan Nasional dulu adalah mengikut Seksyen 17, Bahagian III, Jadual Kedua Perlembagaan Persekutuan yang berbunyi: “Berhubung dengan seseorang anak tidak sah taraf, sebutan mengenai bapa orang itu atau mengenai ibu atau bapanya, atau mengenai seorang daripada ibu bapanya adalah ditafsirkan sebagai sebutan mengenai ibunya.”

Oleh kerana rujukan pada Seksyen 17 ini, walaupun nama bapa tertera dalam sijil kelahiran dan kedua-dua ibu dan bapa menyatakan orang berkenaan memang bapa kepada anak itu, kerakyatan anak masih ditentukan mengikut status ibu. Walaupun ujian DNA dijalankan ke atas bapa si anak yang membuktikan dia memang bapa kandung, ianya juga diketepikan dalam amalan JPN pada takat ini.

Oleh kerana pendekatan sebegini, semua kes dalam kategori ini dikendalikan sebagai kes di bawah Perkara 15(A) Perlembagaan Persekutuan yang berbunyi: “Kerajaan Persekutuan boleh, dalam  apa-apa  hal  keadaan  khas  yang  difikirkannya  patut, menyebabkan  mana-mana  orang  yang  di  bawah  umur  21  tahun  didaftarkan  sebagai  warganegara”, dan ramai antara mereka ditolak permohonan kewarganegaraan berulang kali tanpa sebab.

Maka, PSM mencadangkan agar Kerajaan Pakatan Harapan harus mengunakan kuasa Kerajaan Persekutuan yang terkandung dalam Seksyen 15(A) – “Kerajaan Persekutuan boleh, dalam  apa-apa  hal  keadaan  khas  yang  difikirkannya  patut, menyebabkan  mana-mana  orang  yang  di  bawah  umur  21  tahun  didaftarkan  sebagai  warganegara” – untuk mengubal SOP baru dalam meluluskan kewarganegaraan bagi mana-mana kanak-kanak yang dilahir di Malaysia dan mempunyai bapa yang dibuktikan sebagai warganegara Malaysia (jika bapa dapat dikenalpasti melalui rekod dalam sijil kelahiran ataupun melalui ujian DNA). Permohonan ini harus diluluskan di peringkat JPN dan bukannya dirujuk kepada Menteri Dalam Negeri.

2. Kanak-kanak yang ibu kandung mereka bukan warganegara dan bapa mereka tidak diketahui kewarganegaraannya, yang dianakangkat oleh keluarga berwarganegara Malaysia

Pada takat ini, kes-kes seperti ini diberi ruang memohon kewarganegaraan Malaysia di bawah Perkara 15(A) Perlembagaan Persekutuan yang telah dihuraikan di atas. Biasanya mereka ditolak berulang kali tanpa diberi sebab. Ini amat menyusahkan kanak-kanak tersebut untuk memperolehi khidmat pendidikan dan kesihatan kerana dianggap bukan warganegara.

PSM mencadangkan bahawa, memandangkan kanak-kanak berkenaan ialah “orang tidak bernegara” (stateless) dan tidak boleh dihantar balik ke mana-mana negara lain memandangkan mereka sudah menjadi sebahagian daripada keluarga warganegara Malaysia, SOP JPN harus diubahsuai supaya semua kes di bawah kategori ini diluluskan kewarganegaraan mereka jika mereka telah dianak angkat oleh keluarga warganegara Malaysia selama lima tahun ataupun lebih. Kuasa untuk melulus perkara ini harus diturunkan ke pegawai tinggi JPN dan dijadikan keputusan pentadbiran dan bukan keputusan berasaskan budi bicara Menteri Dalam Negeri.

3. Kanak-kanak yang dibesarkan di rumah anak yatim

PSM juga ingin mengetengahkan kes-kes berkenaan anak-anak yang dibesarkan di rumah anak yatim yang tidak dapat dipastikan kewarganegaraan ibu bapa mereka. Adanya beberapa ratus individu yang telah ditinggalkan oleh keluarga mereka semasa mereka masih kecil dan dibesarkan di asrama anak yatim. Biasanya pihak pengurusan rumah anak yatim akan mendaftarkan mereka di JPN dan mereka dikeluarkan sijil kelahiran. Tetapi, nama dan kewarganegaraan ibu dan bapa tidak dicatit, dan oleh itu mereka ditakrif sebagai “bukan warganegara”.

Mereka yang dianakangkat oleh warganegara Malaysia boleh memohon di bawah Perkara 15(A) Perlembagaan Persekutuan, tetapi ramai tidak dianakangkat dan terpaksa mengharungi hidup mereka sebagai seorang bukan warganegara. Permohonan melalui peruntukan Perkara 15(A) tertutup untuk mereka yang telah mencapai umur 21 tahun. Mengikut SOP JPN yang sedia ada, individu dalam kategori ini boleh memohon kewarganegaraan di bawah Perkara 19 (2) Perlembagaan Persekutuan, tetapi permohonan sebegini jarang diluluskan.

Ketiadaan kewarganegaraan amat menyusahkan anak-anak yatim ini. Mereka menghadapi masalah untuk hadir ke sekolah. Apabila mereka mencapai umur 20 tahun, mereka menghadapi masalah mencari kerja. Oleh sebab tanpa kad pengenalan, mereka tidak boleh mendaftarkan diri dengan KWSP ataupun PERKESO. Mereka hanya boleh mencari kerja yang “tidak formal” bercorak kontrak, dengan gaji harian yang rendah. Mereka tidak boleh membuka akaun bank ataupun mendapatkan lesen memandu.

Apabila mereka berkahwin, mereka tidak dapat mendaftarkan perkahwinan mereka, kerana JPN memerlukan kad pengenalan atau pasport asing untuk mendaftarkan perkahwinan. Oleh itu, anak-anak mereka diiktirafkan sebagai lahir di luar nikah. Anak-anak kepada wanita yang tiada kad pengenalan terus diiktiraf sebagai “bukan warganegara” juga, dan masalah ini berterusan sehingga generasi seterusnya. Jika mereka jatuh sakit, mereka menghadapi banyak masalah untuk mendapatkan rawatan. Hospital kerajaan akan mencaj mereka pada kadar warga asing, iaitu berlipat kali ganda berbanding dengan caj terhadap warganegara Malaysia.

Anak-anak yatim ini tidak boleh disalahkan kerana status mereka yang tidak diketahui, memandangkan mereka sendiri tidak mengetahui tentang ibu bapa mereka. Memandangkan juga mereka akan terus tinggal dan kerja di Malaysia, adalah wajar bagi sebuah negara yang menegakkan keadilan  untuk menyelesaikan masalah mereka dengan segera.

JPN harus diberi SOP baru untuk meluluskan permohonan kewarganegaraan Malaysia melalui Perkara 19(2) Perlembagaan Persekutan kepada semua anak-anak yatim yang dibesarkan di rumah-rumah anak yatim sejak kecil walaupun ibu dan bapa mereka tidak dapat dikenalpasti. Kuasa ini harus diturunkan kepada pegawai tinggi JPN dan dijadikan satu keputusan pentadbiran dan bukannya keputusan berasaskan budi bicara Menteri. Pengubahsuaian ini tidak memerlukan sebarang pindaan kepada Perlembagaan Persekutuan kerana kuasa untuk melakukannya adalah termaktub dalam Seksyen 19(2).

Jangan nafikan peluang golongan tanpa kewarganegaraan untuk menjalani kehidupan seperti orang lain

Kelewatan meluluskan dan memberi maklum balas kepada para pemohon dalam kes-kes seperti di atas merupakan suatu penganiayaan terhadap mereka yang memerlukan kewarganegaraan ini. Tanpa kewarganegaraan, mereka dinafikan peluang untuk menjalani kehidupan mereka seperti orang biasa.

Kerajaan Pakatan Harapan harus menyediakan SOP yang sesuai dan menurunkan kuasa kelulusan kewarganegaraan kepada JPN agar ianya tidak tersangkut di pejabat Menteri Dalam Negeri. PSM juga mencadangkan bahawa satu jawatankuasa khas harus ditubuhkan untuk memantau prestasi JPN dalam mengendalikan kes-kes yang tergolongan dalam kategori-kategori permohonan kewarganegaraan yang dihuraikan di atas.

PSM berharap syor-syor untuk mengatasi isu ketiadaan kewarganegaraan yang dihuraikan di atas akan dikaji dan dilaksanakan oleh kerajaan baru Pakatan Harapan. Tanpa mengubahsuaikan tatakerja (SOP) yang sedia ada, masalah ketiadaan kerakyatan di kalangan mereka yang sudah tinggal di Malaysia untuk hampir keseluruhan hayat mereka tidak akan dapat diatasi.

I hurried into the local CCNA 200-126 exam department store Learningpdf to grab1 some last minute Cisco 300-208 Dumps PDF Chirsmas gifts. I looked at Cisco 300-208 Dumps PDF Learningpdf all the people and grumbled2 to myself. I would 200-128 certification be CCNA 200-125 dumps Prepexamwell Learningpdf in here Prepexamwell forever and I just had so much Learningpdf CCNA 200-126 exam to do. Chirsmas was 200-128 certification Learningpdf beginning to become such 200-127 exam dumps a drag. I kinda wished Learningpdf that Cisco 300-208 Dumps PDF I could just sleep 200-127 exam dumps through Chirsmas. But I hurried the best I could 300-075 Exam Dumps through all the people to Learningpdf the toy department. Once again I kind of mumbled3 to myself at Prepexamwell the prices of all these toys, CCNA 200-125 dumps and 300-075 Exam Dumps wondered if 200-128 certification the Prepexamwell grandkids would even play whit4 them. I found myself in the doll aisle5. Out Prepexamwell of the corner of my eye I saw a little boy about 5 holding CCNA 200-126 exam a lovely doll.He kept touching6 her hair and he held her so gently. 200-128 certification I could not seem to help myself. I 200-128 certification just kept 200-127 exam dumps loking over at the little boy and wondered who the doll 200-128 certification was for. I watched him turn to a woman and he called his aunt by name and said, “Are you sure I don’t have enough CCNA 200-126 exam money?” She replied a 200-128 certification Prepexamwell bit impatiently, “You know that you don’t have enough money for it.” The aunt told the little boy not to go anywhere CCNA 200-126 exam that she had to go and get some other things and CCNA 200-125 dumps would be back in a few minutes. And then she left the aisle. The boy continued to hold the CCNA 200-126 exam doll. After a bit I asked the boy who the doll was CCNA 200-126 exam for. 300-075 Exam Dumps 200-127 exam dumps He said, 200-127 exam dumps “It is the CCNA 200-125 dumps doll my sister wanted so badly for Chirsmas. She just knew Prepexamwell that Santa would bring it. “I Learningpdf told him 200-128 certification that maybe Santa was going to bring it . He said, 200-128 certification 200-128 certification “No, Santa can’t go where my sister is…. I Learningpdf have to give the doll to my Mama to take to her. “I asked him where his siter was. He looked at me with the saddest eyes 200-127 exam dumps Learningpdf and said, “She was gone to be with Jesus.

My Daddy says that Mamma 300-075 Exam Dumps is going to have to go be with her.” My CCNA 200-125 dumps heart Prepexamwell nearly stopped beating. Then the boy looked at me again and 200-127 exam dumps said, “I told my Daddy to tell my Mama not to go yet. I told him to tell her to wait till I CCNA 200-126 exam got back from the store.” Cisco 300-208 Dumps PDF Then he asked me if i wanted to see his picture. I told him I’d love 200-127 exam dumps CCNA 200-126 exam to. Cisco 300-208 Dumps PDF He pulled out some picture he’d had taken at the front 300-075 Exam Dumps of the store. He said, “I want my Mama Cisco 300-208 Dumps PDF to Learningpdf take this with her so the dosen’t ever forget me. I love my 200-127 exam dumps Mama so very much and I wish she dind not have to Prepexamwell leave me.But Daddy says she 300-075 Exam Dumps will need to be with my 200-128 certification sister.” I saw that the little boy had lowered his head and had grown so qiuet. While he was not looking I reached into my purse and pilled out a handful of bills. I asked the Cisco 300-208 Dumps PDF Prepexamwell 300-075 Exam Dumps little boy, “Shall we count that miney one more time?” He grew excited and said, “Yes,I just know it has to be enough.” So I slipped my money in with his 300-075 Exam Dumps and we began to Learningpdf count it . Of course it was plenty for the Cisco 300-208 Dumps PDF CCNA 200-126 exam doll. He CCNA 200-125 dumps softly said, Learningpdf “Thank you Jesus for giving me enough money.” Then CCNA 200-125 dumps the boy Prepexamwell said, Cisco 300-208 Dumps PDF Cisco 300-208 Dumps PDF “I just asked CCNA 200-125 dumps Jesus to give me enough money to buy this doll so Mama can Prepexamwell CCNA 200-125 dumps CCNA 200-125 dumps take 200-127 exam dumps it with her to give Cisco 300-208 Dumps PDF my 200-127 exam dumps sister. And he Prepexamwell heard my prayer. 300-075 Exam Dumps I wanted to ask him give CCNA 200-126 exam Learningpdf for enough to buy my Mama a white rose, but I didn’t ask him, but he gave me Cisco 300-208 Dumps PDF enough to buy the doll and a rose for 300-075 Exam Dumps my Mama.

CCNA 200-125 dumps I could not 200-128 certification keep 200-128 certification CCNA 200-126 exam from thinking about the little boy as I finished my shoppong in a ttally different spirit than when Prepexamwell I had started. And I CCNA 200-126 exam kept remembering a CCNA 200-125 dumps story I had seen in the newspaper several days earlier about a CCNA 200-125 dumps drunk driver hitting a car and killing7 a 200-127 exam dumps little girl and the Mother was Cisco 300-208 Dumps PDF in serious condition. The family CCNA 200-125 dumps was deciding on whether to remove the life support. CCNA 200-125 dumps Now surely this little 200-127 exam dumps boy did not belong with that story.Two 200-127 exam dumps days later CCNA 200-125 dumps I read in Prepexamwell 200-128 certification 200-128 certification the paper 300-075 Exam Dumps where the family had 300-075 Exam Dumps disconnected the life 300-075 Exam Dumps support and the young woman had died. I could not forget the little boy 200-127 exam dumps and CCNA 200-126 exam just kept wondering if the two were somehow 300-075 Exam Dumps CCNA 200-126 exam connected. Later that day, I could not help myself and I went out and bought aome white roses and took them to the Cisco 300-208 Dumps PDF funeral home where the yough woman Learningpdf was .And there 300-075 Exam Dumps she was holding a lovely white rose, the beautiful doll, and the picture of the little boy in Learningpdf the store. I left there in tears, thier life changed forever. The love that little boy had for his little sisiter and his mother was 300-075 Exam Dumps overwhel. And in a split8 second a drunk driver had ripped9 the life of that little boy to pieces.

Pada 27 Mac 2019, bermula jam 2.15 petang, telah diadakan satu pertemuan antara Jaringan Pekerja Kontrak Kerajaan (JPKK) dengan Dr Maszlee Malik, Menteri Pendidikan Malaysia, yang berlangsung di Bangunan Kementerian Pendidikan Tinggi di Presint 5, Putrajaya.

Antara lain, JPKK telah mengemukakan permasalahan yang melibatkan pekerja-pekerja kontrak kerajaan di sekolah-sekolah di bawah Kementerian Pendidikan Malaysia (KPM), iaitu pekerja pembersihan sekolah, tukang kebun dan juga pengawal keselamatan sekolah.

Permasalahan yang diutarakan adalah berkaitan hal umum di mana pengurangan perbelanjaan Kementerian Pendikan telah mengakibatkan kontraktor memperkecilkan operasi yang sekaligus menjadikan lebih 12,000 orang pekerja kontrak ini kehilangan kerja. Dan mana-mana yang masih bekerja pula telah mengalami kekurangan pendapatan dengan beberapa perubahan yang berlaku.

Masalah yang dihadapi oleh pekerja-pekerja kontrak ini mempunyai dua puncanya. Yang pertama, sistem kontrak yang memiskinkan pekerja. Ini kerana tempoh perkhidmatan keseluruhan seseorang pekerja kontrak tidak diambilkira. Ini menyebabkan keadaan di mana gaji sentiasa pada tahap  permulaan; caruman KWSP dan PERKESO selalu berasaskan gaji minimum tanpa mengambilkira pekerja itu sudah kerja 20 tahun; cuti tahunan dan cuti sakit yang kurang. Juga tidak ada jaminan kerja di mana selepas 3 tahun, boleh hilang kerja.

Punca kedua adalah kontraktor yang langgar undang-undang kerja dan menindas pekerja seperti kegagalan kontraktor membayar gaji minimum, atau lewat membayar gaji, gagal melunaskan caruman KWSP walaupun gaji pekerja dipotong, kaedah pengiraan bayaran kerja lebih masa yang tidak betul dan beberapa lagi masalah yang memangsakan golongan pekerja. Keadaan ini menjadi lebih buruk sebab KPM tidak memainkan peranan apabila aduan dibuat. Sebaliknya menasihatkan pekerja buat aduan di Jabatan Tenaga Kerja (JTK), di mana ramai pekerja enggan berbuat demikian sebab takut dimangsakan. Adakala kontraktor tidak menghiraukan perintah mahkamah buruh. Perkara sebegini selalu berulag apabila kontraktor ditukar 3 tahun sekali.

Dalam pertemuan dengan JPKK, Menteri Pendidikan telah menyuarakan ketidakpuasan hati terhadap penganiayaan pekerja oleh kontraktor yang  menindas pekerja  dan meminta pihak JPKK untuk bertindak sebagai perantara antara golongan pekerja dengan KPM agar permasalahan ini dapat diselesaikan. Beliau juga memaklumkan untuk menyemak semula polisi-polisi berkaitan kontrak agar golongan pekerja tidak teraniaya.

Dr.Maszlee juga meminta JPKK menghantar senarai nama semua kontraktor yang langgar undang-undang pekerjaan supaya siasatan dijalankan dan jika didapati benar, maka syarikat dan kontraktor berkenaanakan disenaraihitamkan oleh KPM. Menteri juga meminta JPKK dan PSM untuk membantu dalam menubuhkan kesatuan sekerja yang membela pekerja kontrak di mana beliau bersimpati dengan nasib mereka.

JPKK juga mengusulkan beberapa syor jangkamasa pendek untuk memperbetulkan keadaan sekarang dan juga syor jangkamasa panjang agar sistem kontrak untuk tugas-tugas pembersihan, perkebunan dan kawalan keselamatan dihapuskan, dan semua pekerja diserap menjadi kakitangan awam sekaligus menjadikannya lebih efisyen.

Menteri juga berkata bahawa sistem kontraktor dulu berlandaskan kroni dan beliau akan memastikan amalan ini dihentikan serta merta. Beliau turut berjanji untuk memanjangkan syor-syor ini kepada kabinet dan Perdana Menteri serta Jabatan Perkhidmatan Awam.

Dalam satu kenyataan yang dikeluarkan pada 27 Mac 2019 selepas perjumpaan dengan JPKKK, Menteri Pendidikan Dr. Maszlee Malik berkata bahawa beliau telah memberi jaminan akan akan membawa isu pekerja pembersihan dan pengawal keselamatan sekolah untuk perhatian pihak Kementerian Kewangan bagi mendapatkan peruntukan tambahan. Selain itu, KPM juga akan membawa segala cadangan daripada pihak JPKK untuk perhatian YAB Perdana Menteri dan pihak Jabatan Perkhidmatan Awam (JPA).

“Di peringkat KPM pula, kita bercadang untuk meningkatkan tahap kemahiran pekerja-pekerja ini melalui program latihan di bawah kelolaan Kolej Komuniti dan skim latihan semasa di bawah Kementerian Sumber Manusia,” begitu katanya Dr. Maszlee dalam kenyataan tersebut.

“Bagi mengatasi isu kontraktor yang didakwa menindas pekerja, KPM akan meneliti semula dasar, prosedur dan tatacara kontrak bagi memastikan kontraktor yang berlaku tidak adil dan menganiaya golongan pekerja dikenakan tindakan tegas, termasuk disenaraihitamkan daripada mendapat sebarang kontrak berkaitan di bawah KPM.”

Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) mahu Kementerian Pendidikan Malaysia (KPM) membayar pampasan terhadap kira-kira 12,000 pekerja yang kehilangan pekerjaan disebabkan pengurangan belanjawan bagi perkhidmatan kontrak.

Anggota Jawatankuasa Pusat PSM, R Mohanarani juga menolak penjelasan KPM yang berkata tidak bertanggungjawab terhadap para pekerja yang tidak diperbaharui kontrak perkhidmatannya kerana ia dilakukan syarikat swasta.

“Memang di bawah sistem kontrak yang diwujudkan oleh KPM, tugas pengambilan pekerja telah disubkontrak kepada kontraktor. Kontraktor bertanggungjawab penuh atas pemilihan pekerjanya, iaitu dia boleh memilih siapa sahaja dia mahu untuk menjadi pekerjanya.

“Tetapi perkara-perkara seperti bilangan pekerja untuk sesebuah premis KPM, jumlah gaji dan bilangan syif diputuskan oleh KPM. Sekiranya dalam harga kontrak, KPM memperuntukan bayaran gaji untuk empat orang pekerja sahaja untuk salah satu sekolah, maka tentulah kontraktor berkenaan akan mengambil empat orang pekerja sahaja.

“Sekiranya kontrak sebelum itu menggajikan enam orang pekerja, maka dua orang akan hilang kerja. Adakah ini kesalahan kontraktor atau berpunca daripada dasar KPM?” Soalnya.

Mohanarai berkata kontrak berkenaan bagi tempoh tiga tahun dan kebiasaannya akan diperbaharui.

Hilang mata pencarian

Menurutnya sistem kontrak yang diamalkan Kementerian Pendidikan tidak adil kepada mereka yang diambil sebagai pekerja kerana kontrak mereka boleh ditamatkan tanpa jaminan seperti bayaran pampasan

“Sistem kontrak dipakai untuk kerja-kerja bukan sementara untuk mengurangkan kos bagi kerajaan tetapi menindas pekerja,” katanya.

Pekerja yang tidak diperbaharui kontraknya kehilangan mata pencariannya secara tiba-tiba, jelasnya.

“KPM harus sedar bahawa beribu-ribu pekerja dan keluarga B20 mereka terjejas dan merana akibatnya.

“KPM harus sedar bahawa pekerja kontrak yang bekerja di premisnya adalah manusia yang ada keperluan asas tertentu dan bukan robot…

“PSM menuntut supaya semua pekerja yang kehilangan kerja… akibat perubahan dasar KPM dibayar pampasan berhenti kerja dan bayaran ganti notis untuk jumlah tempoh perkhidmatan mereka di premis KPM,” katanya lagi.

Selain 12,000 pengawal keselamatan yang terjejas, kata Mohanarai terdapat 12,000 tukang cuci yang tidak diperbaharui kontrak pekerjaan mereka.

Kementerian Pendidikan telah membuat penjelasan bahawa kontrak perkhidmatan pekerja berkenaan telah tamat tempohnya dan ia akan melalui proses tender semula berdasarkan keperluan semasa kementerian itu.

Kita boleh kalah, tapi kita tak boleh mengalah

Kita boleh kalah, tapi kita tak boleh mengalah

oleh Nik Aziz Afiq

Terima kasih semua!

Dalam doa-doa saya selalunya pada sujud dan tahiyat saya tak meminta kemenangan diberikan pada saya, saya meminta agar diberikan yang terbaik.

Semalam dalam FB live terakhir kempen juga saya tak tergamak untuk menyeru orang mengundi saya, saya minta undilah calon terbaik.

Maka rakyat Semenyih telah memilih, dan saya hormati pilihan itu dengan hati terbuka dan ucapan terima kasih pada 847 pengundi yang berikan kepercayaan pada saya.

Walau angka itu kecil bagi pandangan kebanyakan orang, bagi saya itu jumlah yang besar. Kepercayaan adalah harta termahal yang dapat diberikan orang kepada kita.

Hari esok bermulalah ujian sebenar buat saya, iaitu apakah saya akan melaksanakan apa yang saya katakan sebelum ini iaitu untuk terus berkhidmat walaupun kalah.

Sekiranya saya tidak laksanakan apa yang saya katakan, itu tanda saya tak hargai kepercayaan 847 orang yang mengundi saya dan PSM hari ini.

Saya ucapkan terima kasih, pada semua yang menyokong dan mendokong perjuangan ini walau siapa pun anda. Saya minta maaf kerana mungkin keputusan ini mengecewakan anda.

Kita boleh kalah, tapi kita tak boleh mengalah. Seperti saya katakan pada media, perjuangan itu satu proses, ia mengambil masa ibarat air yang menitik pada batu. Kita boleh hilang deposit dan diketawakan, tetapi kita tak boleh hilang prinsip dan arah perjuangan.

Terima kasih semua!

Nik Aziz Afiq ialah Ahli Jawatankuasa Pusat Pemuda Parti Sosialis Malaysia. Beliau merupakan calon PSM untuk Pilihanraya Kecil kawasan DUN Semenyih 2019.

Pilihan dalam tangan pengundi Semenyih

Pilihan dalam tangan pengundi Semenyih

SEMENYIH, SELANGOR – 1 MAC 2019: “Kami telah melakukan yang sebaik mungkin untuk menampilkan calon Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) yang berkualiti sebagai pilihan untuk mewakili rakyat dalam Dewan Undangan Negeri Selangor, dan kini terletak dalam tangan pengundi Semenyih untuk menentukan siapa yang bakal dipilih menjadi ADUN Semenyih,” begitu katanya S. Arutchelvan selaku Pengarah Jentera Kempen Pilihanraya PSM untuk PRK Semenyih, dalam satu sidang akhbar yang diadakan pada hari ini sebagai penggulungan kepada kempen PSM dalam PRK Semenyih sepanjang dua minggu ini,

Sepanjang tempoh kempen PRK Semenyih, PSM bersama dengan calonnya Nik Aziz Afiq telah melakukan banyak perkara sebagai usaha memantapkan amalan demokrasi di negara kita, antaranya:

  • Pengisytiharan harta oleh calon PSM;
  • Melafazkan ikrar anti perkauman;
  • Tidak melakukan serangan peribadi terhadap calon lain;
  • Calon yang paling awal mengemukakan manifesto;
  • Manifesto tempatan yang memang serasi dengan hasrat pengundi Semenyih;
  • Kesediaan calon untuk berdebat dalam debat calon anjuran BERSIH 2.0 dan kemudian terlibat dalam Wacana Sinar yang disiarkan secara langsung dalam Astro Awani
  • Berjaya mengetengahkan pelbagai isu nasional dan mendapat reaksi, seperti gaji minimum, masalah yang dihadapi pekerja kontrak, sistem kesihatan awam yang terancam, perumahan mampu milik, masalah yang dihadapi pangsapuri kos rendah, pendidikan awam dan pengangkutan awam.
  • Ketika parti lain membawa masuk orang-orang kenamaan dan menteri-menteri (termasuk Perdana Menteri dan Timbalan Perdana Menteri) untuk berkempen di Semenyih, PSM pula berjaya membawa suara pekerja kontrak, pekerja ladang dan penghuni pangsapuri kos rendah untuk bercakap terus kepada media tentang masalah dan tuntutan mereka, selaras dengan slogan PSM “Bersama Membina Kuasa Rakyat”;
  • Mengadakan sidang media setiap hari untuk mengetengahkan isu-isu rakyat;
  • Siaran langsung di laman facebook setiap malam untuk membincangkan isu-isu rakyat;
  • Mendapat sokongan daripada aktivis hak asasi manusia dan masyarakat sivil.

Arutchelvan berkata, “Kempen PSM berjaya mengungkitkan beberapa isu yang mendapat reaksi terus daripada kerajaan, dan ini sebenarnya menguntungkan rakyat Semenyih. Sebelum adanya keputusan Pilihanraya Kecil pun, kempen kami berjaya membawa manfaat kepada penduduk Semenyih.” Antara isu yang dibangkitkan oleh PSM semasa kempen PRK Semenyih yang mendapat reaksi daripada kerajaan termasuklah menaiktaraf Klinik Kesihatan di Semenyih kepada Hospital Kerajaan, mendesak pemansuhan tol di Semenyih, penggubalan undang-undang baru untuk melindungi pekerja ladang dan kritikan terhadap skim insurans mySalam.

Menurut Arutchelcan, calon PSM Nik Aziz Afiq dan Jentera Kempen PSM mendapat pujian daripada pihak media kerana calon itu sendiri tahu tentang isu-isu tempatan dan mampu mengupas isu secara jelas, di samping kempen yang teratur.

Kempen PSM juga mendapat reaksi yang memberangsangkan daripada rakyat tempatan. Respon daripada golongan anak uda dalam mesia sosial amat menggalakkan. Terdapatnya pengundi yang tidak mengundi PSM dalam PRU lalu memberi respon yang positif dan berkata bahawa akan mengundi PSM kali ini. Ramai pengundi berpendapat bahawa perlunya satu alternatif ketiga selain Pakatan Harapan (PH) dan Barisan Nasional (BN).

Walau bagaimanapun, Arutchelvan mengatakan bahawa jumlah pengundi yang keluar mengundi mungkin akan menurun kerana masih ramai yang tidak terlalu teruja dengan PRK Semenyih ini.

Arutchelvan juga merespon kepada kenyataan Perdana Menteri Mahathir Mohamad baru-baru ini yang mengkritik golongan sosialis dengan mengatakan bahawa pemimpin kerajaan hari ini harus mengubah cara pemikiran sosialis mereka dan tidak patut terus mengecam sistem kapitalis. Arutchelvan berkata bawa ini ada kaitan dengan pengundi yang semakin tertarik dengan ideologi sosialis yang memperjuangkan keadilan sosial sebenar. Golongan sosialis seperti PSM telah membangkitkan pelbagai isu rakyat seperti membantah penglibatan syarikat insurans dalam sistem kesihatan awam, mengenakan sekatan terhadap pembinaan rumah mewah supaya lebih rumah mampu milik dapat dibina, menolak penswastaan pendidikan yang dikendalikan oleh GLC yang bermotifkan keuntungan dan isu gaji minimum, di mana semua isu ini dan kritikan PSM terhadap Kerajaan PH memang mendapat respon yang baik daripada rakyat secara umumnya.

Calon PSM Nik Aziz Afiq berharap pada pengundi Semenyih supaya keluar mengundi secara beramai-ramai dan mengundi calon yang terbaik untuk membawa suara rakyat biasa ke dalam DUN Selangor.

Nik Aziz Afiq telah berjaya menunjukkan dirinya sebagai calon yang terbaik antara 4 calon yang bertanding dalam PRK Semenyih. Walaupun merupakan calon yang paling muda dari segi usia, tetapi pengalamannya melibatkan diri dalam aktivisme dan kebolehannya dalam menyampaikan penghujahan dengan jelas untuk membincangkan isu-isu rakyat, nampaknya jauh lebih menyerlah berbanding calon yang lain. PSM berkeyakinan bahawa Nik Aziz Afiq ialah calon yang terbaik dan bakal menjadi wakil rakyat yang dapat membawa suara rakyat secara lantang dalam DUN Selangor jika dipilih.

Proses pengundian untuk PRK Semenyih akan berlangsung pada hari esok, 2 Mac 2019, dengan masa pengundian dari pukul 8.00 pagi hingga 5.30 petang.

SEMENYIH POLLS | PSM has described Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s statement that voters should not waste their ballots on the opposition as a BN era threat.
The party’s central committee member S Arutchelvan also criticised the Pakatan Harapan chairperson for resorting to cheap political stunts.
He noted how during the BN administration, voters were warned that supporting the opposition would be at the expense of development in their constituency.
“This is gutter politics and cheap politics,” he told a press conference in Semenyih this afternoon.
“Are they (saying) no health clinic will be constructed if BN or PSM wins?” he asked, referring to the pledge to build the clinic by Harapan candidate Muhammad Aiman Zainali.
Speaking at a ceramah in Semenyih yesterday, Mahathir said votes should not be wasted on BN candidate Zakaria Hanafi since he would not be able to fulfil his election pledges because the coalition no longer controls the federal government.
Met later, Zakaria disagreed with Mahathir.
He said voting for BN would be a referendum against Harapan for not fulfilling the promises in its election manifesto for the 14th general election.

“Their votes will not be squandered. This is a democracy and this is the time for them to (demonstrate) people power,” he said.
He pointed out that Harapan has failed to fulfil many of its promises stated in its manifesto.
As such, he said the people should not be afraid to cast their ballots.
Meanwhile, PSM candidate Nik Aziz Afiq Abdul urged Mahathir to refrain from saying that the opposition will not be able to fulfil its promises.
It is Harapan that is unable to fulfil its pledges, even making U-turns (on some policies), he said.

Aktivis, peguam sokong calon PSM di Semenyih

Aktivis, peguam sokong calon PSM di Semenyih

Source: Free Malaysia Today

SEMENYIH: Seramai 52 aktivis daripada badan bukan kerajaan dan peguam menyatakan sokongan terhadap calon PSM, Nik Aziz Afiq Abdul bagi pilihan raya kecil DUN Semenyih.

Aktivis sosial, Kua Kia Soong yang mewakili kumpulan itu berkata, pengundi di Semenyih perlu mengundi calon PSM kerana PPBM dan Umno yang turut bertanding dalam PRK Semenyih adalah parti berdasarkan bangsa.

“PPBM dan Umno adalah parti berdasarkan bangsa yang tidak mempunyai tempat dalam Malaysia Baru,” katanya pada sidang di Bilk Gerakan PSM, hari ini, yang turut dihadiri Nik Aziz.

Bekas ahli Parlimen DAP itu juga mempersoalkan mengapa calon Barisan Nasional, Zakaria Hanafi dan calon Pakatan Harapan, Muhammad Aiman Zainali tidak mahu menyertai debat yang dianjurkan Bersih 2.0.

“Dua lagi calon ini tidak mahu berdebat dengannya. Apa maksud Malaysia Baru yang kita katakan ini? Malaysia Baru ialah pilihan raya di mana calon tampil dan berdebat tentang isu-isu semasa.

“Mereka ini tidak mempertahankan logo dan bendera yang diwakili. Mereka ini hanya berdiri mewakili diri mereka,” katanya.

Kua turut memberi penjelasan mengapa beliau tidak menyokong calon bebas, Kuan Chee Heng atau dikenali sebagai Uncle Kentang.

“Saya tak kenal dia. Saya kenal PSM, saya kenal Nik Aziz, saya kenal PH, BN semua, tapi Uncle Kentang saya tak kenal dia.

“Apa rekod dia, siapa dia, apa yang dia akan buat, manifesto dia, dia mewakili siapa? Persendirian atau apa? Apakah pendirian dia terhadap hak asasi manusia, demokrasi dan keadilan sosial,” katanya.

Sementara itu, Nik Aziz memberi penjelasan siapa individu yang terlibat dan membiayainya pada PRK Semenyih.

“Saya tak ada tauke, tokoh-tokoh korporat, tak ada pemodal-pemodal bersama perjuangan saya.

“Tetapi yang bersama-sama memberikan sokongan adalah kawan-kawan aktivis, NGO, aktivis hak asasi yang selama ini bekerja untuk membawa masyarakat kita ke tahap yang lebih tinggi,” katanya.
