List Of 10.8 Million Voters Distributed To All Umno Divisions

TEMERLOH, Feb 3 (Bernama) -- Umno has distributed the list of 10.8 million voters to all its divisions to facilitate tracing of voters and campaigning in the upcoming 12th general election.

Umno secretary-general Datuk Seri Radzi Sheikh Ahmad said the list carried the names and addresses of voters to enable the party's election machinery to get voters to carry out their responsibility of casting their votes.

He said the list had been divided according to voters' race and submitted to Umno, MCA and MIC to help them identify the respective party supporters and facilitate door-to-door campaigning.

"The distribution is meticulously done as it also involves age and gender groups and the voting centres," he said after a briefing on current issues at the Temerloh Umno hall here Sunday.

He said Pahang had 601,512 voters -- 423,792 Malays, 139,593 Chinese, 29,051 Indians and 9,076 from other races.

He was confident that the party's Wanita, Youth and Puteri wings would work as a cohesive unit during the election campaign to ensure a big victory for the Barisan Nasional.

Radzi said Umno had 2.8 million registered members, out of whom 650,000 did not register as voters with the Election Commission.

"However, 250,000 of them could be traced and have registered as voters to be able to vote in the coming elections," he added.


Kimma Chief: We Have Decided To Merge With PPP KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 3 (Bernama) -- The Malaysian Indian Muslim Congress (Kimma) has decided to merge with the People's Progressive Party (PPP), after its application to join Barisan Nasional (BN) failed to elicit a reply.

Kimma president Amir Amsaa Alla Pitchay said the unanimous resolution to join PPP was passed at its (Kimma's) supreme council meeting Sunday.

"We need a channel to voice the problems of Indian Muslims to the highest authority after our application to join BN did not get any reply," he told reporters after chairing the meeting.

For example, Amir Amsaa said, children of Kimma members were recorded as 'Indian' in their birth certificates, instead of Indian Muslims like before.

He said this had caused problems to school going children who became confused with their background.

He said that last Friday, Kimma supreme council members met PPP president Datuk M. Kayveas to discuss the possibility of merging with PPP.

While Amir Amsaa did not state Kayveas's stand on the merger, Kimma Wanita chief, Masturah Sulaiman claimed that Kayveas welcomed the move.

Amir Amsaa said Kimma would hand over the merger resolution to Kayveas in Shah Alam on February 23.

Kayveas could not be contacted for comments.

Kimma is reported to have almost 80,000 members.


Opposition Misleading People Over Price Hikes - Shafie TEMERLOH, Feb 3 (Bernama) -- Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Mohd Shafie Apdal Sunday hit out at the opposition for claiming that the government has failed to curb price hikes of goods.

"The claim is politically-motivated. They are trying to mislead the people although the prices of essential goods in Malaysia are cheaper than in neighbouring countries like Singapore, Indonesia and Vietnam.

"The government will not allow retailers to benefit from profiteering but instead work at controlling prices. For instance, gas is priced here at RM1.75 per kg compared to RM2.70 in Kuwait," he said after a giving a briefing on current issues at the Temerloh Umno division hall here Sunday.

He said the government had to spend RM60 billion on subsidy for gas over the last 10 years and billions more on subsidies for essential goods like cooking oil, flour and sugar, besides education, medical care, agriculture and other sectors, in order to make the costs affordable for consumers.

"The opposition parties love to raise the price hike issue, especially with the general election coming, but I am sure the people are wise enough to judge for themselves," he said.

Shafie said the government had foreign reserves of RM110 billion, among the highest in the world, and with prudent measures, it was able to control inflation.

HULU TERENGGANU, Feb 3 (Bernama) -- Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said Sunday the government is always prepared to consider any request from any race which it feels appropriate and genuine.

The Prime Minister said if the government felt that the requests could be met or were appropriate for consideration, it would approve them.

"I'm confident that when all the details are submitted, God willing, action can be taken because we adopt a positive attitude on the people's requests.

"Whenever the complaints, requests are right, genuine, appropriate, definitely we will consider them... whatever we can give, which are appropriate, we will implement. This is the principle we uphold all this while in the development of our country," he told reporters after laying the foundation stone of the Hulu Terengganu Polytechnic, here Sunday.

Abdullah was asked to comment on the MIC request to the government to resolve seven critical issues which had caused dissatisfaction among the Indian community including the imbalance in equity participation.

MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu made the requests at the party's convention Sunday.

The Prime Minister said the government always listened to the people's grouses irrespective of their race and would not allow any community to be marginalised in the country's progress.

"The grouses are not only coming from the Indian community, we also hear such grouses from the Chinese, and Malays. What is important, the government will not neglect, isolate or deny them the opportunity from deriving benefits from the country's progress," he said.

However, he reminded that in distributing the opportunities and benefits to the people, the government adopted a fair and equitable approach.

Abdullah, who was accompanied by his wife, Datin Seri Jeanne Abdullah, was in Terengganu for a one-day visit.
