All 3 Labuan MPs had problems

The situation in Labuan continues to be one that is embarrassing. For a second time in a row, we have yet another MP who has been declared a bankrupt.

The local Municipal Council falls under the current MP. Labuan Corporation is also under the management of the current MP. In fact, the vast majority of important decisions relating to the island fall under the preview of the MP. Yet he is now in court and has been declared a bankrupt.

How on earth does he have time to manage his constituency, manage all the relevant departments under him, attend to the needs of the business community and the people of Labuan and also have time to attend to his court case and remain sane enough to play politics?

The fact remains there is and has not been any leadership in Labuan for a decade. Some even dread the thoughts of predecessor Suhaili returning to the fold.

It is absolute madness – Labuan folks seem to keep ending up with politicians who are neither capable nor mature enough to be able to manage the island and their own personal finances without some controversy.

Even the first MP (before Suhaili), Abdul Mulok, had a court case for Criminal Breach of Trust (CBT) involving several million ringgit.

Nobody seems to know who to talk to when dealing with issues relating to work passes for foreign workers, given Labuan has a ban on it which has yet to be lifted till now and business are struggling to hire local staff and workers as the demand for local workers is too great.

Why is Labuan the only constituency in Malaysia that cannot bring in foreign labour or workers?

There has yet to be a solution to the Hotel Labuan eyesore which everyone has to put up with on a daily basis. Once an iconic building, it is a source of embarrassment and a daily reminder of the way things are in Labuan. A lot of talk, no action.

The Labuan market project, new bus terminal, a number of major road projects on the island which remain unfinished, not to mention the parking problems in the town center and lack of care as far as improving the infrastructure of the town center remain unresolved because there doesn’t appear to be any interest or money available to finish these projects.

Why does the Federal Government keep getting it so wrong with the people it selects to represent the party every single time?

This time around if Ibrahim Manudeen a Labuan born accountant who was Sabah State Treasury Boss at one time, CEO of Malaysian Mining Corporation at one time, is to contest under Anwar Ibrahim’s PKR, for sure Barisan National with its terrible track record is finish for good in the island of Labuan.
