PH govt has fulfilled 8 out of ten 100-day promises — Rep

Wong King Wei

KUCHING: Pakatan Harapan (PH) federal government has fulfilled eight out of its ten 100-day promises since it won the May 9 general election.

Padungan assemblyman Wong King Wei said the new government is still working on abolishing unnecessary debts that have been imposed on Felda
settlers, which is number three on the list as well as number nine — introducing the RM500-Skim Peduli Sihat for the B40 group for basic treatments in registered private clinics.

“The manifesto is our commitment to the voters. Our manifesto is as detailed as possible, showing the extent of our commitment.

“Only No 3 and 9 of the 10 promises have not been fulfilled. Others have been fulfilled, and have started the fulfilling process,” he said when contacted yesterday.

He was asked whether the PH government had fulfilled its 100-day election promises made prior to the May 9 polls.

On the two yet-to-be-fulfilled promises, Wong said “we the PH government are under obligation to seek pardon from the people and give the reason why they have not been fulfilled.

“We need to be honest to our voters and all Malaysians. It will be best if the cabinet can give a new time frame as to when the two promises will be fulfilled.”

He said it is also imperative for the PH government to fulfill other promises including the recognition of Unified Examination Certificate (UEC) within the next five years.

He said he was delighted to see the efforts of eliminating corruption following ‘the biggest change’ of government after the last general election.

“All mega projects are to be awarded through open tender. The 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) scandal has been taken action against.

“This is the way forward to put our country on the right track,” added Wong, who is national Democratic Action Party (DAP) Socialist Youth deputy  chief.

The eight 100-day promises that Wong claimed to have been fulfilled by the PH government are:

*Abolishing the GST and take steps to reduce cost of living

*Stabilise the price of petrol and introduce targeted petrol subsidies

*Introduce EPF contribution for housewives

*Standardise the minimum wage nationally and start the processes to increase the minimum wage

*Postpone the repayment of PTPTN for all graduates whose salaries are below RM4,000 per month and abolish the blacklisting policy

*Set up Royal Commissions of Inquiry on 1MDB, Felda, Mara and Tabung Haji, and to reform the governance of these bodies

*Set up a Special Cabinet Committee to properly enforce the Malaysia Agreement 1963

*Initiate a comprehensive review of all mega projects that have been awarded to foreign countries
