    Licensing of Grocers - Watch a flip-flop coming up.

    Flip-flop coming up. UMNO never consult people before they decide on anything that burdens the people. Typical UMNO Bodoh-sombong. Watch them do a flip. They only understand the stick.

    KUALA LUMPUR, June 7 — Sundry shop owners across the country are threatening to stop selling sugar, cooking oil and flour after June 15 if the Najib administration insists on requiring them to be licensed to sell these items.

    MCA president Datuk Seri Chua Soi Lek met with members of the Sundry Goods Merchants Association of Malaysia, who voiced the threat. He told them he would appeal to the government to intervene and find a solution.

    “The move is not a protest but the association feels it’s an additional burden on them,” Chua told reporters today.

    He said the association represents 20,000 shops across the country that continue to serve most Malaysians despite the increasing number of supermarkets and hypermarkets.

    Chua said MCA deputy president and Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai would raise the issue in the Cabinet this week. TheMalaysiaInsider....

    KUALA LUMPUR, June 7 — The Domestic Trade, Co-operative and Consumerism Minister will not retract its directive requiring traders selling price-controlled items to obtain licences despite their threat today to stop selling the goods entirely.

    Its minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob told a press conference in Parliament this evening that the government was willing to meet the disgruntled traders over the directive but only if they agreed with the new licensing requirement.

    He said the ministry would not retract its own policy decision, pointing out that the government had already agreed with the traders’ demands to relax the guidelines in the application of the licences.

    “We will meet with them if all they want is for us to relax the guidelines in the licensing but not if they want us to scrap the directive entirely.

    “It would be pointless to meet with them if all they want for us to do is to retract our decision,” Ismail Sabri (picture) said firmly today. TheMalaysiaInsider....
