Pakatan Rakyat must do things differently from BN or else...

When a community chooses an ADUN and a MP - then rightfully this person/s must be there in the various councils, committees, etc which looks into the area he/she is the elected rep.

BN excluded the Opposition MPs/ADUNs - but the Opposition must not do the same.

The choice of the people must be respected - the Elected Rep must not be ignored be it at the ADUN level or the MP level.

He must be provided the required avenue to provide inputs and ideas, etc -- as the representative of the local community...

BUT alas it seems that the Pakatan Rakyat is doing just the same thing as the BN government previously...and this is so sad.

The PR Government must take this opportunity in government to create new standards, new norms, new ways of doing things, etc ...Remember '...Do unto others what you want others to do upon you..."


penang state assembly 181108 jasmin mohamedJasmin Mohamed (left) (Umno - Sungai Dua) ticked off Phee Boon Poh (DAP - Sungai Puyu) for not compelling the state government to include Barisan Nasional elected representatives in the various district development councils in the state, something Phee had actively preached for in the previous assembly term.

The Umno opposition man chided Phee for preaching one thing during his tenure as state opposition leader (2004 - 08) and practicing something else after becoming part of the state administration after the March 8 general election.

He rapped Phee, who is in charge of the Health, Welfare and Caring Society portfolio, for keeping mum over the Pakatan Rakyat government's alleged excluding of opposition members from the councils when he had previously kicked up a fuss when the BN government did the same.

"Why did YB Sungai Puyu fail to compel the state government to include Umno assemblymen in the councils?" Jasmin asked the House when debating the state's 2009 Budget tabled by Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng (DAP - Sungai Dua). - Malaysiakini, 18/11/2008 - DAP rep told to 'practice what you preach'
Pakatan Rakyat must do things differently from BN or else...the rakyat may start looking for a NEW Alternative...

I remember reading somewhere that Sungai Puyu questioned the opposition on why the opposition ADUNs rejected state government's offer in the appointment of assistant to EXCO in various committees, including Sungai Puyu's portfolio, Health and Welfare committee...

I'm all for a bipartisanship administration, but I found it strange when the UMNO (and Gerakan) was shouting to Lee Kah Choon's appointment in PDC and InvestPenang...

But yeah, Penang state government should take the criticism all in all...

first and foremost, PR must take responsibility. if anyone done wrong & said stupid stuffs, punished them accordingly.

this has never happened in BN. those done wrong, got promoted higher instead.
