Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is invited to sit in the state mining subsidiary KSSB and this is the best way to proof to every quarter that the state is practicing transparency in its administration. Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim wants MACC to be together in KSSB to observe that there is no element of corruption and abuse in handling the sand issues in the state.
This is certainly a courageous move and if is accepted the issue of alleged corrupt practices in KSSB will be instantaneously be put to an end. BUT this move might no be liken by Noh Omar or Khir Toyo as they have to unearth other issues to harm the reputation of the Selangor PR government.
If everyone is serious to observe intelligibility and transparency on sand mining issue in this richest state, the invitation by the Selangor MB for the MACC to sit in the office of KSSB must be accepted with ovation from the public.
So far this move is the most courageous among all the states in the country and the clear intention to combat corruption by the PR MB of Selangor would be a huge contribution to Pakatan Rakyat in securing the public confidence from the voting public.
I would suggest that TS Khalid Ibrahim should give UMNO the credit for being an effective opposition in the state Assembly and let us call upon the rakyat to let UMNO to remain as opposition and PR as the ruling party in the state.
So this is another proof that UMNO is an effective opposition and no other party can play a good and effective role as an opposition. so let them be on the opposition bench, say for another term in Selangor State Assembly.
On contrary Khalid and his team should deserve a praise for being sensitive to issues surrounding the public interest and now we have already discovered the best resolution in running the Selangor State government; PR be the ruling party while UMNO and BN as an effective opposition.
If UMNO can play a good role as an opposition in Selangor it may be a good idea that it be applied in other state governments and subsequently followed by the Federal government in Putrajaya.
As long as the government is a government with accountability and the leaders do not appropriate anything owned by the rakyat and be prepared to be observed by the agency to check on any corruptible activity give them the chance to rule.
What matters most to us is the leaders administrating us are responsible and accept the separation of power both in the state and at Federal level.
May be TS Khalid should also invite representative from MACC to sit as an ex-officio member in the State Exco meeting. If that is done PR will remain in power in Selangor and that will be a good testimonial exhibit for the public to evaluate the worthiness of the government that PR rules.
Interesting, isn’t it??
