Barisan Nasional GE15 manifesto – auto/transport-related pledges same as that outlined in Budget 2023

Barisan Nasional GE15 manifesto – auto/transport-related pledges same as that outlined in Budget 2023

Apart from the pledge to abolish the approved permit (AP) requirement for all imported EVs, the Barisan Nasional (BN) 15th General Election (GE15) manifesto presented by BN chairman Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi last night also contained some automotive/transport-related initiatives.

Two of these were an exact match of what was already stated in Budget 2023. The first is a plan to boost the motorsports industry among youths by building more drag racing circuits, as presented during the tabling of the budget.

It was announced then that the Malaysian government would allocate RM20 million to build drag racing strips in the country, although details on where the allocation would be spent or for how many drag strips was not revealed.

The second is an initiative to assist OKUs utilising ride-hailing services for their travel by providing them with financial aid through ride-hailing vouchers, with RM10 million being allocated each year for this purpose. Additionally, the manifesto also mentioned a plan to have all public transport vehicles and official government cars to be environmentally-friendly by 2030.

    Honestly BN’s pledges had been more down to earth and frankly more believable compared to Pakatan’s manifesto which the last time was admitted to be promises meant to be a joke. We can trust BN’s one as it is stated in the Budget 2023 and they know they can be held responsible if not fulfilled. Can we say the same this time with Pakatan, who had lied before, in this GE?
    It reminded me of money game scams where the “victims” are forced to continue trusting the scam and sinking further deeper because they had invested too much into their belief and not wanting to look like a fool. Such examples never ends well for the “victims”.

    And i wrote victim with ” ” as most go into these traps knowing it is likely a trap yet they still do it. Why Malaysians, why? Highly educated Malaysians cannot be that stupid right?

      “NOT be voting for BN/PN thanks to their high prices, weaker malaysia currency than other countries, RM to USD conversion is really worst now, food prices really high, high corruptions and traitors, meritocracy only for the rich benefit, already hurting enough to all Malaysians. 60 over years for BN and 17 months for PN is enough of damage they had wrought to Malaysia and our people.

        “nothing you saying is true after looking at huge amount of corruption scandals and illgotten gains by PH in such a short time as Government. stop the nonsense. you are claiming prices going up but that is due to US inflation, under normal circumstances things would not change much. I personally think he is trolling here, as inflation back in 2019 was significant as US has done nothing to the effect, it was a lot of businesses and money leaving Malaysia under PH, many of the FDI went to more favorable Asean nations and yet he would claim that is due to BN lol then he pretends PH are the cleaner Government when Malaysia TI ranking went down under them obviously he has an agenda to propagandise PH.”

          • Trying to said that BN/PN all perfect than PH.

            Look, Copy Paste

            KJ during SB Ceramah annoucement have made their promises by combatting corruption is actually cheating to the public and BN have always been lying to the public.

            Since BN vows about combatting corruption, BN is doing again after GE15 by allocating RM15 billion for flood project. Is this so called how to combat corruption.

            Same can be said for Hishammudin as Minister of Defence also making cheat to the public after announcement about postal voting for armed forces by military chief.

            PN government have also making big liars when PN government was formed about some of PN duty ministers are denying that they are traitors. When Azmin is also another traitor but always blaming Azmin as he is also not traitor.

            And before Ismail Sabri replacing Muhyiddin as PM, Muhyiddin also making liars to the public.

            So who cares about you and your BN liars and your PN liars. And why should I believe your liar stories And why I still need to believe you to see one person do liking votes in every articles as if BN/PN all do perfect than PH?

          • And tell me first during BN rule, our currency already weaken. During BN rule, fuel prices are really more expensive, During BN rule, with 6% GST car prices already higher. But after GE15, want to protect EV but EV incentives isn’t enough but expensive enough. Stop defending as if BN are doing better than PH.

  • Our country’s car pricing structure needs to be revamped. Anything less than that is not beneficial for long-term sustainability.

  • And by making worse for:

    – Fuel prices afraid that will be higher
    – GST will be back
    – Food prices will be higher again
    – Our currency will be weaker

    And there:
    – Can see why EV but for what? For rich is it? I agree with some said should continue to support hybrid cars. EV is also too expensive and also renewing roadtax.
