PUTRAJAYA: The National Good Governance Plan or MyGovernance will be introduced to all government agencies including statutory bodies to increase and strengthen the public service delivery competencies towards reaching the national vision and addressing the weak governance issues relating all government bodies.
Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said, the plan is based on four good governance principles namely transparency, accountability, competencies and effectiveness.
“A committee will be formed for the development of MyGovernance and in line with that the measurement of the quality level of a government institution will be made via the Malaysian Government Index (MGI).
“The Special Cabinet Committee on Anti Corruption (JKKMAR) that I chaired today had agreed with the development of MyGovernance and proposed a study and the governance session to be implemented by the National Governance, Integrity and Anti National Corruption Centre (GIACC) that involves various interest groups.
“This proposal will be discussed at the JKKMAR meeting in future,” Ismail said in a statement here today.
The Prime Minister also stressed that the meeting had also agreed with the Proposal of the Implementation of Drafting a Bill (RUU) on Political Contribution, however it will be discussed with the Cabinet members before a good governance session is made with the political parties.
Ismail added, the scope of the new RUU related to the monitoring of political contribution had been agreed to be presented to the Cabinet Ministers’ Meeting. The RUU is important as until today there is no law or procedure that monitors the political financing and it could help to avoid the corruption risk, abuse of power and the misuse of power involving politicians that will give negative impact to the nation and government image.
Relating to the confiscation of property management and the forfeiture of the rights, Ismail said the meeting has agreed that the National Anti Financial Crime Centre (NFCC) will be the agency centred for the confiscated property and the forfeiture of rights.
Meanwhile, on the separation of the powers of the Public Prosecutor and the Attorney General, Ismail said, the meeting had agreed that an in-depth study should be done involving the constitution, laws and finance.
“The government is always committed to uplift the level of governance and integrity in the efforts to combat corruption in the country,” Ismail reiterated. –Malaysia World News
