see... it's marked in her calendar already.
Pua challenges Khairy to a debateCome one, come all, but please bhave yourselves.
Name the time and place... These were the words of DAP leader Tony Pua to his fellow Oxford graduate Khairy Jamaluddin after issuing a challenge to him for a public debate on the civil service issue.
“Instead of asking the party and myself for an apology, Khairy should do away with emotive arguments as well as semantics and focus on the issues at hand,” he said.
Pua, who is the economic advisor to DAP secretary- general Lim Guan Eng, said the debate could be held at the Kuala Lumpur Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall next Wednesday at 8pm. Or it could be held at any time or place of Khairy’s choosing, he stressed. “We will make time for him. There is no point in making statements in the press, nitpicking on certain points that I raised based on facts and not focusing on the issues at hand,” he added.
Pua said the debate should focus on three issues:
- How to prevent our education system from churning out graduates who are unable to gain employment despite the large number of advertised vacancies in the market.
- How to improve our civil service delivery system to substantially increase the satisfaction of the people and the successful completion of government projects.
- How to streamline a bloated civil service, disproportionate to the size of the Malaysian population to reduce tremendous economic burden of the government.
Pua also claimed that his earlier statement had been misconstrued by the media.
He acknowledged saying that the civil service had become a ‘dumping ground’ for unemployed Malay graduates but denied stating that the civil service was totally made up of unemployed Malays. “I have no intention to make such claims," he stressed.
