Submit asset declaration forms or face disciplinary action, Johor reps warned


Johor assemblypersons are required to formally inform the state assembly in writing if they need more time to submit their asset declaration forms or risk facing disciplinary action.
State assembly speaker Suhaizan Kaiat (above) said those who would like to apply for more time to submit the forms should send their letters to him.
“Some have asked for a postponement but they just called on the phone, so I’ve asked for a letter and if there is a valid reason, we’ll consider. With restrictions due to the movement control order (MCO) to curb the spread of Covid-19, send your letter first, then we’ll consider.
“If an assemblyperson does not send any notice (form), it will be as if he has disobeyed the assembly’s decision and so leave himself open to disciplinary action,” he said after receiving the asset declaration forms from Johor opposition chief Aminolhuda Hassan, who is also the state Pakatan Harapan head.
Suhaizan said that apart from Harapan assemblypersons, he had also received forms from Perikatan Nasional representatives.
Meanwhile, Aminolhuda, who is also Parit Yaani assemblyperson, said all 27 Harapan assemblypersons - comprising 14 from DAP, nine from Amanah and four from PKR - had submitted their forms.
He said it was mandatory for the asset declaration forms to be submitted as the Johor state assembly had passed a motion on Dec 1, 2019, with the final day of submission being before June 1.
There are 56 seats in the Johor state assembly, with PN holding 29 seats and Harapan 27.
