    " I am right now focusing on Permatang Pauh"- Nurul Izzah

      Nurul Izzah Anwar is devoting her time to serving her constituents and doing community work after her shock decision last December to resign from all her party positions, including as PKR vice-president and Penang PKR chief, and federal posts. In keeping with her pledge then to be committed to reforms as a parliamentary backbencher, the Permatang Pauh MP said she is striving for change and championing a women’s health cause.   “Yes, you can rule me out of politics for now ... there is enough Malaysian politics to go around and I am working for change. There is a lot of community work to be done and I am right now focusing on Permatang Pauh and on the ways to help the villagers here,” Nurul Izzah said in an interview with The Star at Kubang Semang in Permatang Pauh yesterday."   “There is a 90% success rate with ROSE compared to 50% for Pap smear. So we are really pushing forward to get this new programme in, especially in villages.“Only 13% participate in Pap smear screening, which is very disheartening,” noted Nurul Izzah. In January, her mother and Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, who is also Women, Family and Community Development Minister, launched ROSE in Kuala Lumpur.   On views that she should have continued with her work as the chairman of the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) task force – set up in June last year – Nurul Izzah said she had completed her work within the six-month period. “It was a wide scope and we recommended a commission to monitor all the ongoing training, set benchmarks on curriculums and ensure that they are industry-driven and the relevant ministries take them up,” she said.   On Balik Pulau MP and Deputy Tourism, Arts and Culture Minister Muhammad Bakhtiar Wan Chik being the acting PKR state chairman, Nurul Izzah said it was agreed on by the party leadership. “In fact, Bakhtiar is the chairman and will be in that position for some time,” she said. Asked about the perception that things have regressed since the 14th General Election, Nurul said everyone needs to focus on the work at hand and have clarity of thought.   “Our policies for the people should be implemented without partisan beliefs,” she added. Last May, Nurul Izzah won the Permatang Pauh seat in GE14 with a 15,668-vote majority. Her father, PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, first won the Permatang Pauh seat in 1982 and held it until 1999 when he was jailed for abuse of power. Dr Wan Azizah then contested and won the seat in the 1999, 2004 and 2008 general elections. On July 31, 2008, she vacated the seat for Anwar, who won it in a by-election and again in the 2013 general election but was disqualified as MP later after being found guilty of sodomy. In May 2015, Dr Wan Azizah became the MP again following a by-election.   Sourced from TheStar Online   Together as a Community!!!

  • Completion of new hospital block in Seberang Jaya delayed

    Completion of new hospital block in Seberang Jaya delayed

    Seberang Jaya- The construction of new multi-storey blocks that were expected to be completed by June 2020 will apparently face a delay for another year following a decision by the Ministry of Finance (MOF) to reopen the tender for the project. This time the tendering process will be done through a open-tender. However, the Penang State Executive Councillor for Agriculture, Agro-Based industries, Rural Development and Health, YB Dr. Afif Bahardin said that the issue will be bought to the attention of the MOF for further consideration in order to accelerate the construction process of the federal project. "Saya faham bahawa proses tender terbuka penting untuk memastikan ketelusan dan keberkesanan pelaksanaan sesuatu projek tapi dalam soal projek pembinaan hospital sebesar ini, tender terbuka perlu dilihat pada perancangan awal dan bukannya sewaktu projek sedang berjalan. "Apabila perolehan dibuka semula secara tender terbuka, ia akan menjadi masalah koordinasi yang mana proses tender terbuka ini menyebabkan projek yang sudah sedia lewat akan bertambah lewat kira-kira setahun lagi." “Sebab itu, saya melihat perlu ada perbincangan bersama MOF untuk melihat beberapa prosedur di dalam kerajaan yang boleh diguna pakai bagi mempercepatkan proses pembinaan projek ini,” katanya pada sidang media sempena lawatan ke tapak projek berkenaan sebentar tadi." Furthermore, Dr Afif added that so far there are only four contractors that have been awarded the tender whereas 15 other contractors are still in due process of approval which is expected to be completed  by the end of this month. “Dari segi polisi tender terbuka kita setuju tidak ada masalah mengenainya tapi dari segi koordinasi akan menimbulkan masalah bagi projek ini. Oleh itu, saya perlu suarakan perkara ini kepada MOF untuk mencari penyelesaian bagi mempercepatkan projek ini,”said Dr Afif who is also the State Assemblymen (ADUN) of Seberang Jaya. It is understood that the project has cost RM 368,888,987 so far and expected to be fully completed by the end of 2021. He also addressed the problem of lack of parking spots in the hospital that needs to be given serious attention by the relevant parties due to the inconvenience it causes to the public.
