NGO raises issue of imbalance in civil service

Date:

KUCHING: A non-governmental organisation on Tuesday (Feb 8) called on the government to look into imbalances in the appointment of state civil servants.

It needs to be improved in line with the population of Sarawak, said Datuk Richard Wee Liang Chiat, president of the Federation of Kuching, Samarahan and Serian Divisions Chinese Association Sarawak (Huazong).

He said this could be done by setting quotas and ratios for all the people in Bumi Kenyalang.

Wee made the suggestion during the association’s annual courtesy visit to Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Open at Wisma Bapa Malaysia in conjunction with the Chinese New Year celebration.

It was also to discuss matters concerning the economy, education, public health and other sectors that demand the state government’s attention.

Meanwhile, representatives from the home for the elderly also paid a courtesy visit to the Chief Minister at the same time to share their long-term plans as well as to seek Abang Johari’s approval to build a new building in the Batu 10 area.

Also present together with the delegation were Sarawak Chairman Hun Nam Siang Tng Tay Boon Sin along with its Correspondence Officer Kok Yong Hwa, and Group Managing Director of Supreme Consolidated Resources Berhad Lim Ah Ted.
