IPOH: April 20, 2008 by Hah Foong Lian
Decisions of the previous administration deemed to be “unfair and (which) had robbed others of their rights” will be cancelled, said Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin.
Assuring the people that the new DAP-PKR-PAS coalition government will rule by "universal values of justice, transparency and accountability," Nizar said his executive council (exco) meeting had uncovered certain decisions made by the previous Barisan Nasional government.
He alleged that some of these decisions were unfair and had robbed others of their rights.
“We will cancel such decisions and give back the rights to the people,” he said on Sunday at a thanksgiving lunch organised by Tambun Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) division at Taman Meru here.
“We are doing this because it is our duty to do so. If we continue as before (like the previous administration), the people will only get angry and hate us,” he added.
He also pointed out that the support of the people was crucial and the new coalition government wanted to make changes based on those universal principles.
On April 17, it had been reported that the state government would stop the transfer of land titles to political parties if there had been any irregularities in the initial approval.
Nizar also stressed that the government would quickly clear and approve applications for projects that were deemed fair and to be commensurate with the rights of the people.
