Johor MB - 'Political Party Quota System' under UMNO-BN exposed? Against the law and Constitution.

UMNO-BN 'Political Quota' system for affordable housing is scandalous and very wrong - it may also a violation of the Federal Constitution which requires government to not discriminate and treat all Malaysians equally.
3,000 of the 16,010 houses under the Johor Affordable Housing Scheme (RMMJ) built over the last three years over-allocated to Barisan Nasional (BN) component party members.
UMNO-BN seems to have not understand the meaning of DEMOCRACY - Parties who win the General Elections, and end up in government is responsible for ALL Malaysians (irrespective if they are members and/or supporters of the winning party). This includes government projects, housing, employment and/or promotions in government departments/agencies/government owned companies/GLCs,...

From what is revealed, just over the past 3 years, 3,000 affordable houses were allocated to party members of UMNO and other BN component party members. Were they even qualified to get these houses? Was this a second house for some...or maybe a 1st house to a person whom their spouses were rich and owned other houses? It was not BN's money - it was money of the people?

Worse still this was 'affordable housing', where the priority should have been for people who were 'poor' who did have rich families who owned houses. Allocating the house to a child of a rich man is also wrong. 

Hope the Johor Menteri Besar will look at these '3,000' UMNO-BN party members that got these houses, and cancel the 'allocation' and take back these houses, and allocate them to the people that truly deserves these homes who were in the list of those who applied.

CORRUPTION - Yes, it is when an UMNO-BN allocates it to their own party members - for the 'support' given to the party?

KLEPTOCRACY - Yes, it may be - After all, UMNO-BN members have been wrongfully enriched. It not just wrongly taking money and/or other opportunities to enrich oneself, but also to enrich one's family members and ...reasonably also one's supporters/friends.

If this happened with regard to 'affordable housing', did it also happen with regard to government projects? Were certain projects given to members and/or their 'friends' in the same manner? 

STOPPING such practices is good - but for justice to be done, these wrongs must be investigated and the 'culprits' charged, and benefits/money that has flow out to such members/friends should be recovered. To not recover the said '3,000' houses will be one should be allowed to enjoy the fruits of crime(or abuse of power of the past government).


Thanks to the Johor Menteri Besar Osman Sapian, we now know for sure. Many people have been suspecting that such practices were happening for it is hard to not notice how UMNO-BN party leaders at local levels were also getting richer...

PM Mahathir and the Pakatan Government must also investigate whether similar things happened at the Federal Government level...and no one should be allowed to continue to enjoy the 'benefits' of wrongdoings of past government because that will be an injustice to the Malaysian people...

Mahathir has already revealed about the UMNO-BN government appointed some 'members/friends' as public servants - he refered to them as 'political appointments'...

In the first few days, the Pakatan Harapan government has been working hard...exposing wrongs...and 'cleaning' up the mess ...Most focus has been on 1MDB ...but let us go beyond and clean up at all levels...

KOTA ISKANDAR: Johor will scrap the political party quota system for allocation of affordable housing units, which has been in place for decades.

Mentri Besar Datuk Osman Sapian said 3,000 of the 16,010 houses under the Johor Affordable Housing Scheme (RMMJ) built over the last three years over-allocated to Barisan Nasional (BN) component party members.

Speaking said this after chairing his first Exco meeting here yesterday, he said it was part of Pakatan Harapan's pledges to remove the 20% quota for the housing scheme to be fair to all.

The scheme has three types of houses, with prices set at RM40,000, RM80,000 and RM150,000.

Osman said the government will set up a committee to work out the allocation system without the quota.
The mentri besar also said RM50,000 would be allocated for each state assemblyman to service their constituencies this year.

"The allocation was given to all 56 state constituency including those won by the opposition," he said.

The government will allocate RM993,000 for mosques and suraus for Ramadan. Mosques will be allocated 
RM500 while surau will get RM300 as special financial assistance.

He said similar financial assistant will be allocated for houses of worship of other religions. "Johor economy is good, and our debt is well under control," he said.- FMT, 23/5/2018
