Give Kadazandusun based party chance to represent their people: Tailin

Godfrey Daya (left) and Tailin Mainan (right) at UPKO Kimanis meeting 0809Membakut : In conjunction with the on-going Election Commission (EC) re-delineation exercise of state constituency in Sabah, UPKO Kimanis Division chief Mr. Tailin Mainan suggest that Barisan Nasional especially UMNO should give chance to its Kadazandusun Murut based party counterpart to represent their own community in all constituency. This is inline with the principal of power sharing concept which upheld by all of Barisan Nasional component party. He was speaking during Kimanis UPKO divisional meeting recently in Membakut. 

Mr. Tailin reiterate that some UMNO members should stop making claims for KDM seats especially through the mass media.

 “What is happening in Kota Marudu and Keningau is disheartening. Making claims on KDM majority seats and asking a Barisan Nasional component deputy president to give up his seat is ridiculous. Who give them authority to dictate other component party? ” 

He urges all UPKO members to stay calm and don’t react to such baseless claims made by some UMNO members. 

“After all UMNO have dominated more than 55% of seats in Sabah apart from contesting all bumiputera seats in West Malaysia. UPKO never argue this.” Tailin also noted that former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad had declared UPKO as the only party that represented the KDM race during the UPKO Congress in 2003. 

He believe that under the new leadership of Prime Minister Datuk Sri Najib who is also the Barisan Nasional Chairman, will be fair and understand the needs of minority component party in Barisan Nasional.

Tailin, who is also UPKO supreme council member, reminded that UPKO, all these while, fighting for the KDM cause in education, language, citizenship and other matters.

“KDM community numbers are less than one million in whole entire world. We cannot determine the rules of the game because we are too few and mostly will be dictate by Malay majority “We just want to make sure that the minority are well represented and respected in the country” he stressed.

Also present during the meeting were Kimanis UPKO  Deputy Chief, Gundohing Godfrey Daya, all division members as well as Kimanis UPKO wing leaders Wilfred Stephen and Cecilia Ondoi.

UMNO, Kalah di kawasan Melayu beralih ke kerusi Kadazan?

muhibbahParti komponen dari Barisan Nasional sibuk melobi kerusi-kerusi baru yang bakal dibentuk melalui persempadanan semula. Ada juga yang melobi-lobi kerusi yang ditinggalkan oleh parti SAPP. Namun yang memeranjatkan kita ialah parti Melayu UMNO yang terang-terang bersifat ‘Ketuanan Melayu’  berani mengusulkan mahu semua kerusi pemimpin Kadazandusun.  Ada yang mahu YB Maximus Ongkili berundur. Kalau pemimpin UMNO Sabah sendiri biadap dengan pemimpin UPKO, PBS dan komponen lain, apa lagi sifat biadap mereka kepada rakyat?

Saya rasa tidak sesuailah UMNO Sabah menyalak pada pokok kerana terdapat 3 parti komponen lain yang berasaskan Kadazandusun murut. Senario sekarang berbeza dengan tahun sebelun 2000, kerana nampak sangat kekosongan suara Kadazandusun  selepas PBS meninggalkan Barisan Nasional pada 1990. Kini PBS telah kembali dalam BN, pemimpin “Kadazandusun” UMNO Sabah pun bagai cacing kepanasan mencari lobang. Ada yang mengancam nak masuk PKR! Ada yang nak sabotaj parti komponen lain waktu pilihanraya PRU-12 dulu.

Presepsi pengundi sekarang ialah UMNO ini parti tamak, sudah tidak diguna pakai oleh orang-orang Melayu di Semenanjung Malaysia jika diukur dari setiap kekalahan demi kekalahan bertalu-talu parti itu melalui beberapa pilihan raya kecil. Oleh itu, nasihat saya, UMNO ukur baju di badan sendiri dulu….sebelum menggugat parti Kadazandusun Murut lain.

Wasallam.

Taragang Rasuk.

Applications handed over to NRD by UPKO

Upko's Citizenship and Security Bureau YB Donald,Madius Tangau, Maijol Mahap, Arthur Sen, Hj JaffearKota Kinabalu: Upko’s Citizenship and Security Bureau has handed over 36 longstanding citizenship applications to the National Registration Department (NRD) in Sabah for a speedy solution.

The cases were handed over by the Bureau chief, Donald Mojuntin, during a courtesy call on the NRD Sabah Director, Haji Abdul Jaffear Henry, at the Federal Administrative Complex here.

Apart from discussing matters directly pertaining to citizenship, other related issues were raised like the issue of the Sabah Native Certificate and “Surat Berian” Wedding Status which falls under the State Native Court.

The use of the terms “Native” and “Sino-Native” in national identification documents were also queried as Upko is of the opinion that “Native” is not a specific race but just a categorical or a generic term used to describe a group of indigenous people.

“Furthermore the usage of the term is not legally accepted by the State of Sabah as it has not gone through the necessary stages to make it so. The matter should first be vetted by the State Attorney General’s office.

YB Donald Mojuntin & Hj Jaffear“When that is done, it will then have to be endorsed by the State Cabinet.

Finally it will have to pass through the State Assembly. Then and only then can it be accepted as a legal term that can be used in documents as important as our personal identifications. Otherwise it will and does create, for instance, NT land inheritance problems,” he said.

Mojuntin who is also Assistant Finance Minister and Moyog State Assemblyman and his delegation was also briefed by Jaffear on the department’s vision, mission, operation, past and up-coming programmes.

Biro members Alvin Lee CDO Moyog,Bryan M Moyog PKR & Pemuda UPKOMojuntin said the purpose of the visit was to deliberate on certain issues related to citizenship and also to enhance ties with NRD.

“As one of the main objectives of the Bureau is to ensure only genuine Sabahans or those legally qualified for it are bestowed citizenship, it is only appropriate to build and foster a strong and practical working relationship with the NRD,” he said.

He added that the visit was also auspicious as it comes right after the Prime Minister’s announcement of his 11 people-friendly measures which include improvements to the process of registering births in Sabah and Sarawak, on the occasion of his 100th day in office.

Dtk Patrick Sindu, Goven Lasung, Aldem Chia, Datin Dr. Jainah Sintian & NRD officialsAlso present were Upko Vice President, Senator Datuk Maijol Mahap, Upko Secretary Datuk Wilfred Madius Tangau as well as Upko wing leaders Arthur Sen and Datin Dr Jainna Sintian. Among the Bureau members present were NGO activist Datuk Patrick Sindu and Persatuan Peranakan Ranau Chairman, Aldem Chia.

According to Mojuntin, the bureau had been receiving numerous grievances and complaints related to citizenship.

Tailin Moinon Ligunjang and the rest at Q&A session“These problems stem from non and late registrations of births, being born outside Sabah before Malaysia Day, marriages with foreigners and a myriad of other situations.

“This issue of citizenship, especially in Sabah, is one of the few fundamental problems that need to be sorted out for the Prime Minister’s 1Malaysia concept to be achieved, he said.

“We must remember that most of these relevant applicants have family members who are citizens. If their respective problem is not dealt with efficiently, it will not only disillusion the applicants themselves but their family members and friends will also lose confidence in the government’s delivery system and perhaps, the integrity of the government. It would be like a negative pyramid effect.”

Jaffear commended the effort of the Upko Bureau and welcomed any helping hand to assist the NRD, especially from elected representatives whether State or Parliament.

“The NRD is open to all constructive suggestions from any party as this will improve our department’s efficiency,” he said.

Kinabalu FlagTAPAH: Parti Pertubuhan Pasokmomogun Kadazandusun Murut Bersatu (Upko) menerima sokongan masyarakat Orang Asli dengan tertubuhnya empat Bahagian Upko di Perak kelmarin.

Presiden Upko, Tan Sri Bernard Dompok menyifatkan penubuhan Bahagian Upko di Perak yang dianggotai oleh masyarakat pribumi Orang Asli sebagai lonjakan perjuangan parti Upko yang selama ini lantang memperjuangkan isu-isu yang menjadi keprihatinan utama rakyat di negara ini.“Pasokmomogun ialah istilah dalam bahasa Kadazandusun yang bermaksud masyarakat anak negeri atau pribumi.”

“Justeru, penyertaan masyarakat Orang Asli ke dalam Upko sememangnya sangat bertepatan kerana parti ini merupakan wadah terbaik untuk mereka menyuarakan isu-isu yang berkaitan dengan kepentingan masyarakat ini,” ujar Dom-pok semasa melancarkan keempat-empat Ba-hagian Upko tersebut di Dewan Bandaran Tapah. Bahagian Upko yang dilancarkan tersebut ialah Tanjung Malim, Tapah, Gopeng dan Parit.

Upko kini mempunyai 101,081 ahli di seluruh negara termasuk Bahagian di Shah Alam selain mendapat keahlian di Johor Baharu dan Pasir Gudang yang turut meliputi penyertaan daripada kaum-kaum yang lain seperti Cina, India dan Iban.Dompok, yang juga Menteri Perusahaan Perladangan dan Komoditi Malaysia menyatakan bahawa parti Upko telah terbukti memperjuangkan hak-hak dan kepentingan masyarakat Pasokmomogun di Sabah.

Bernard Dompok“Tapi sebagai sebuah parti politik yang prihatin, maka Upko juga telah mengambil pendirian yang tegas di dalam isu-isu rakyat di peringkat nasional, termasuklah masalah yang dihadapi oleh masyarakat Orang Asli,” ujar Dompok.

“Perdana Menteri telah mengumumkan Key Result Area (KRA) dan prestasi semasa kerajaan bersempena dengan 100 hari beliau sebagai Perdana Menteri Malaysia.

Beliau juga telah menerangkan dengan lebih mendalam konsep kepimpinan beliau, iaitu “Satu Malaysia, Rakyat Didahulukan, Pencapaian Diutamakan.”

“Pelancaran empat Bahagian Upko di Perak pada hari ini merupakan sumbangan kita kepada usaha ke arah Satu Malaysia kerana kita mahu membawa suara dan aspirasi masyarakat pribumi di seluruh negara ke dalam arus pembangunan perdana nasional,” ujar Dompok.

Dompok, yang juga merupakan Ahli Parli-men Penampang menyatakan keyakinan bahawa parti Upko akan memainkan peranan yang lebih signifikan dengan penubuhan Bahagiannya di seluruh negara.

Sementara itu, Ketua Upko Bahagian Tanjung Malim, Suki Mee menyatakan harapan supaya suara masyarakat Orang Asli dapat dibela melalui parti Upko. “Selama ini, masyarakat kita menyertai pelbagai parti politik, termasuk parti pembangkang, tetapi tidak mampu memperjuangkan isu-isu berkaitan kepentingan kaum kami.”

“Justeru, kami menyetai Upko kerana percaya dan yakin dengan perjuangan parti ini di dalam membela kepentingan semua kaum, khususnya masyarakat pribumi di negeri ini,” ujar Suki Mee.

Turut hadir di dalam majlis pelancaran Upko ini ialah Tuan Zainal Fadzi bin Haji Paharuddin, Exco Kerajaan Negeri Perak, Dato’ M. Sarava-nan, Timbalan Menteri Wilayah Persekutuan, Datuk Seri Panglima Wilfred Bumburing, Tim-balan Presiden dan Ahli-ahli Majlis Tertinggi Upko.

Upko to reach out to Perak Orang Asli

Orang AsliKOTA KINABALU: A Sabah-based Barisan Nasional component party will launch five divisions in Perak today. The United Pasokmomogun Kadazandusun and Murut Organisation (Upko) is spreading it wings to help provide a voice for the Orang Asli community there.

Upko president and Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister Tan Sri Bernard Dompok is expected to launch the five pro-tem divisions in Tapah, where he is attending the Perak Orang Asli Land Development Convention.

Upko supreme council member Albert Bingkasan said yesterday the Orang Asli of the Semai group had expressed their interests in joining the party for the past two years.

“The community wanted a vehicle in the country’s political mainstream and it appears they are attracted to our struggles in the party, which is focused on the indigenous communities.

“Many of them being Christians and indigenous also find it hard to expand, politically, with other BN parties which have different priorities for the communities they represent,” Bingkasan said.

Under Upko’s Constitution, membership is open to all Malaysians who subscribe to the party’s struggles, he added.

The party opened a division in Shah Alam, Selangor, two years ago where most of its members are from Sabah.

Upko, which has 44 divisions, is merging the divisions into 25 in line with the number of parliamentary seats in the state.

Indigenous Peoples Network of Malaysia president Adrian Lasimbang said estabishment of the branches would be a positive political development for the Orang Asli community.

“Presently in Parliament, the Orang Asli has only one representative, Senator Osman Bujang. They also do not have any political party to represent them.”

Lasimbang said in Peninsular Malaysia, there were more than 100,000 Orang Asli people from 18 groups, with the majority being the Semai community.

Malaysia to expand palm oil industry aggressively, says Dompok

dompok1KOTA KINABALU, June 5 – Malaysia is aggressively expanding its palm oil industry and Sabah has been right on cue with its palm oil industrial cluster developments, says Minister of Plantation Industries and Commodities Tan Sri Bernard Dompok. He said the Lahad Datu palm oil industrial cluster (POIC Lahad Datu) and the Sawit POIC in Sandakan were important steps in Malaysia’s long-term ambition to remain in the forefront of the global edible oil industry and it must step up efforts to bring in more investors. “We have to strategise and respond swiftly otherwise Indonesia will move ahead of us,” he said, referring to recent plans by the world’s largest palm oil producer to develop industrial complexes to encourage large-scale palm oil downstream industries. Malaysia and Indonesia command some 85 per cent of the world’s palm oil production with the latter slightly ahead as the largest producer. According to a statement issued by POIC Sdn Bhd, here today, Dompok made the remarks at a briefing on state-owned POIC Sabah Sdn Bhd at the Sabah Trade Centre here last Friday. Also present were Industrial Development Minister Datuk Raymond Tan and Minister of Rural Development Datuk Ewon Ebin, who is also the chairman of POIC Sabah. The company is developing the 1,150-acre POIC Lahad Datu which has so far attracted 23 investors and about RM1.3 billion investments. POIC Sabah’s chief executive officer, Dr Pang Teck Wai, gave the briefing which was also attended by newly appointed assistant minister of industrial development Datuk Seri Panglima Michael Asang, the ministry’s new permanent secretary Haji Hashim Paijan and senior officials of POIC Sabah, the Department of Industrial Development and Research, and the State Economic Planning Unit. In the ensuing dialogue, Dr Pang presented Tan Sri Bernard a “wish list” concerning issues critical not only to the success of POIC Lahad Datu but also the sustainability of the palm oil industrial as a whole. Among the items on the list were the promotion of palm oil export to Japan and South Korea, two highly industrialised economies conspicuously absent from the list of major palm oil buyers. Other include strengthening bilateral cooperation with Indonesia in combating anti-palm oil campaigns and achieving the sustainable status of Sabah’s palm oil and mitigating the negative spill-over effects from neighbouring territories allegedly practicing unsustainable methods of oil palm development as well as establishing a biodiesel blending depot at POIC Lahad Datu. Addressing the officers later, Dompok said that one of the surest ways to attracting investors would be to offer them irresistible incentives especially in matters related to land. “We have to rethink our preoccupation with the concern that we must be paid (market price) for the land and recover the money put into the infrastructure, while fully aware that investors are being put off by high land cost. “I think it’s time we look at it as sunk cost and that by making land available at low cost, or perhaps even free, we can attract investors who bring in money, technologies, create jobs and develop our economy,” he added – Bernama
