几时到你公布财产?


官员应不应该公布财产?应该向谁公布?所公布的范围应该涵盖到什么程度?

这几道问题,随着槟州民联政府从首长到10名行政议员于日前公布本身的财产后,再度引起大众的关注及议论?

20108月,国阵内阁成员向首相纳吉申报财产时,社会大众普遍质疑此举能否有效证明部长们的清廉。当官者必须交代的对象是人民,他们应该做的是取信于民,而不是取信于首相。况且,向首相申报后,却无须对外公开,透明度还是原地踏步,人民还是雾里看花,这申报来有什么用?

然而,马华总会长蔡细历显然不这么认为。蔡总当时说:“我不是不赞成向人民公布财产,问题是,我不懂有哪个国家是这么做的。就连美国也只是申报收入,不用公布财产。”

蔡总这可是长他人志气灭自己威风了,人家未做我们就不能带头做?如此思维,如何达至首相“全球最民主国家”的宏愿啊?

况且,蔡总在说出这番话之前,显然是没有做足功课。就在蔡总发表其伟论的大约两个星期前,日本首相菅直人便已率领18名内阁成员向民众公布了各自的财产状况。

而蔡总所举例的美国,根据人家的申报制度,总统、副总统、国会议员、联邦法官以及行政、立法和司法三大机构的公职人员,都必须在任职前呈报自己的财产,上任后更须按月申报,而且申报范围还包括申报人的配偶及受抚养的子女。更重要的是,这些财产申报资料会被公开,供大众查阅复印,而不是不见天日地躺在首相或总统的抽屉里。

如果阁员只须向首相申报,那么首相又向谁申报了?

针对槟州民联政府首长及行政议员的财产公布,如果你问我满意吗?我觉得还不满意。没错,他们是走对了第一步,可是我希望他们能多走几步,比如说:按月申报、把配偶的财产也一并公布。而且除了雪州及槟州之外,也希望其它两个民联州政府可以跟上。

至于那些来自国阵的批评者,在急着发文告抨击人家“缺乏诚意”、“没有透明度”、“不够全面”、“表面功夫”之余,不懂几时可以以身作则,向我们人民示范何谓有诚意、有透明度、够全面的财产公布真功夫?

Ministers will only inform PM, hence if there is nay hanky-panky, their balls will be in PM's hand - x-files created. Therefore u can see Malaysian Ministers will resort to YA-BETUL mentality.

Pls check CSL and Tee SK's harta benda.

Perhaps they have so many pipe-lines inflow of cash and kind, therefore become complicated to declare their indivial assets.
Reported to only their boss has no difficulty.
