Don’t be a research-only unit, Selangor exco told

PETALING JAYA: With the swearing in of new Selangor exco members today, hopes are high for them to take swift action and provide real-time solutions in solving people woes instead of indulging in political rhetoric.
State opposition member Johan Abdul Aziz urged the new government team not to be “a research-only unit” which always resorts to saying they needed to study an issue matter first.
“Don’t research and research, in the end, no results, and nothing is delivered,” said Johan, who is also the Semenyih assemblyman, from Umno.
“You are the people’s representatives, you have won the second mandate, so you better do your work,” he said.
Citing the example of Jalan Sungai Lalang in his constituency, a 200-metre stretch which was damaged by a landslide in December, he said the stategovernment has yet to repair the road despite it being state road.
“The federal government allocated RM300,000 through Marris (Malaysia Road Records Information System) to the state to repair the road, but the MB said they would study the matter and put the money into a state fund first.
“Six months have passed and nothing has transpired. This is an urgent matter,” he said.
The 10-man exco was sworn in today features four new faces – PKR’s Doroyah Alwi (Sementa assemblywoman), PAS’ Sallehan Mukhyi (Sabak), DAP’s Teng Chang Khim (Sungai Pinang) and V Ganabatirau (Kota Alam Shah).
The remaining six were re-appointed for the second term, while Subang Jaya assemblywoman Hannah Yeoh has been named as the state assembly speaker.
Inefficient old guards
BN’s Kuang assemblyman Abdul Shukur Idrus when commenting on the line-up said it is dominated by the old guards who were proven to be inefficient.
“They were the one who had failed to fulfill the promises they made before the 2008 elections, for example the allowance to single mothers and free kindergarten classes.
“In terms of development, there has been no significant achievements in the last five years,” he said.
On the new exco members, Abdul Shukur said he would give them a chance to perform before making any comments.
Meanwhile, BN’s Sungai Burong assemblyman Shamsudin Lias welcomed Yeoh’s appointment as the first woman speaker in the country.
He said he look forward to working with her in the state assembly and hoped she would conduct the sitting in a fair manner.
