All the component parties’ head honchos were gathered for the press conference. The party presidents from UMNO, MCA, MIC, Gerakan, SNAP, SAPP, and all the great parties from Sabah and Sarawak made the joint announcement:

We have published in full the expenses claimed by all our Front Bench MPs for the last three months.

This comes as part of our political party’s continued efforts to bring greater openness to the issue of MPs’ expenses and allowances.

The information published includes a comprehensive list of staff and their positions, an indication of any family members employed, and a breakdown of office running costs and expenditure incurred by staying away from their main home.

The Party President said:

“Politicians need to do everything they can to regain the trust of the Malaysian people, and transparency has a key part to play in that process. We must show that we’re spending taxpayers money sensibly and correctly.”

And he stressed:

“We are the first party to demand this information from our members, and our MPs are voluntarily revealing a much more detailed breakdown of their expenses than official rules require them to. I’m glad that we’re leading the way.”

Response from ga-ga rakyat:

Wow! How the new political landscape has shifted. Such new standards of accountability! Worthy of a standing ovation!

We are floored… its unprecendented! Who’s this guy leading such change we’ve been waiting for?

  2. Ko Yem Binjai,

    So, you made allegation/s.

    Where’s the proof? Without proof, your accusations very difficult to stick on to whoever.

    The law only open its eyes to evidence. Until then, what you’ve said is just hearsay.
