MMO - Cenbet: Clean, efficient administration required to fulfil Pakatan’s 100-Day pledge
Sunday, May 13, 2018
KUALA LUMPUR, May 12 — A stringent system for a clean and efficient administration is required if Pakatan Harapan plans to execute their “First 100 Days” pledge well, said The Centre For A Better Tomorrow.

In a statement, the advocacy group called for the newly appointed government to exercise moderation and good governance by ending extremism and graft.

“It is imperative that the new administration makes appointments (in cabinet) based on merit, not political considerations, such as party quota. Merit-based appointments are part of good governance which we advocate,” it said.

“Those appointed need to be honest, trustworthy, beyond reproach and have an impeccable track record.”

“Whether as ministers, senior bureaucrats or heads of Government-Linked Companies, these people are holders of public trust and should not treat the appointments as a vehicle for personal interests.”

The group then stressed that the government had a responsibility to live up to Malaysians’ expectations to have a clean and efficient administration.

It also added that the government should immediately put a stop to divisive racial and religious sentiments for political motives.

“It has also to put in place a stringent system with strong oversight to ensure minimal leakages on matters like government procurement. The new government needs to live up to public expectations of a clean and efficient administration,” it said.

“In this respect, having an independent MACC answerable to Parliament will help.”
