Metzelder says: What is Najib 'king' doing with his 1Malaysia concept? He fears that he will lose more grounds in upcoming election?

First, he spend about RM60,000 to send e-mail for CNY, which maybe also repeat for Hari Raya and Deepavali.

And now spending RM50 million on a new e-government project that includes a 1 Malaysia email account for all Malaysians aged 18 and above.

We don't need this project, Mr. Najib. I would prefer if he willing to spend on our fragile Klang Valley public transport system.

I don't really need to say those reasons, maybe he is a bit 'lacking' in his thought or in other words s**pid.

Do you need this and why you need/do not need?

We can show our power to reject by joining 1M Malaysians Reject RM50 mil 1Malaysia Email Project page.

RM50 Million for 1Malaysia email project (Malaysiakini)

RM50 million will be invested by local IT player Tricubes Berhad into the 1Malaysia Email Project to provide email accounts for official purposes to all Malaysians aged 18 and above.

The project, said Prime Minister Najib Razak, in announcing it at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre in Putrajaya today, will allow direct and secure communication between Malaysian citizens and the government.

Its purpose, he added, is also to enhance the delivery of government services to consumers and businesses alike.

Asked if the project will conflict with existing government e-government sites and services like MyEG, Tricubes said that the project differs from the existing initiatives.

"We will focus on delivery of notices and bills, MYEG is about online payment," said CEO Khairun Zainal Mokhtar to reporters in a press conference after the announcement.

However the description of the project in handouts distributed during the event, said that the 1Malaysia email and portal will be a "one-stop centre for government services, providing value-added services such as social networking, checking bills online and payment."

He also said that his company will own the portal and email infrastructure once it is completed sometime in July this year.

However the CEO fail to address a question by a reporter on how will the company recoup returns from the millions of ringgit in project investment.

It was also not apparent how having an email system as an Entry Point Project (EPP) will help to drive Malaysia's transformation to a high income nation.

Tricubes is also one of the companies that were involved in the project to to supply MyKads and biometric passports to Malaysians.
