MP hails Malaysian Governance Index


KUCHING: Minister of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi welcomes the Malaysian Governance Index which will be introduced by the government to measure the performance of government machinery governance in delivering services to the people and making the 12th Malaysia Plan (12MP) a success.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced the news when tabling the 12th Malaysia Plan (12MP) in Parliament yesterday (Sept 27).

Nanta, who is also the Kapit MP, said, “It is a guarantee that all strategies and initiatives in the 12MP will be implemented in an orderly, integrity and responsible manner, in line with the goal of making Malaysia corruption-free.

“The government already has a great plan, but of course the success will depend a lot on its implementation.”

He urged all parties to work together to ensure that the plans outlined under the 12th Malaysia Plan (12MP) could be implemented and realised successfully.

He said that he did not want the plan to just look good on paper. 

“We also do not want unnecessary bureaucracy that will hamper the success of the implementation of the 12MP.

“We want all at the implementing level including agencies and departments to work hard to make this plan a success, apart from avoiding a ‘little Napoleon’ attitude which will affect the government’s efforts,” he said yesterday (Sept 27).

Nanta also expressed his confidence in the prime minister for paying more attention to the Dayaks and Bumiputeras in Sarawak through the implementation of the plan.

“I also welcome and appreciate the prime minister’s concern to develop and bridge the socio-economic and educational gaps in Sabah and Sarawak which is in line with the spirit of the Malaysian Family.

“We are also happy that the government has allocated RM4.09 billion to Sarawak for the implementation of the National Digital Infrastructure Plan (Jendela) throughout the 12MP period,” he said.

With this provision, he said, broadband coverage would be enhanced through the construction of digital infrastructure, including the construction of telecommunication towers or transmitters.

“As a Sarawak MP, I guarantee that as long as I am in the government administration, I will act proactively in helping and facilitating the implementation of the 12MP,” he said.

He also stressed that it was important for all parties to be aware that the plan was for a period of five years.

“Therefore, whoever forms the government after this is expected to continue its implementation to ensure that the targets can be achieved for the good of the people and the country.

“I hope the current government will continue to get the mandate to ensure the successful implementation of the 12MP in accordance with the targets set when the planning was made,” added Nanta.
