Selangor government urged to sign corruption-free pledge

 |Sep 7, 2017

SHAH ALAM: The Selangor government has been urged to immediately sign the corruption-free pledge (IBR) as it is the only state government in the country that has not yet done so.

Selangor Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) director Datuk Wan Ramli Wan Abdullah said the commission was still awaiting feedback from the Selangor Menteri Besar Azmin Ali-led administration in order to hold discussions regarding the pledge.

“To date, 90 state and federal organisations in Selangor have signed the IBR, and it is the highest compared to other states and we expect the number to grow by the end of this year.

“Only the Selangor government has yet to give its final decision. The Penang government and the Kelantan government have finally agreed to participate in the IBR and hopefully the Selangor government will take the same step,” he told reporters after witnessing the signing ceremony of the IBR by the Perbadanan Wakaf Selangor (PWS) here yesterday.

The signing ceremony was led by PWS chief executive officer Mohammad Yacob. – Bernama
