|YB. ENCIK WONG HO LENG|
YB Wong Ho Leng (N45 – Bukit Assek) moves (on Nov 02, 2010):-
Motion concerning of responsibilities by Cabinet Ministers and Assistant Ministers:
- The Cabinet Ministers are charged with responsibilities to answer questions raised by elected State Assembly-persons during every meeting of the Dewan Undangan Negeri Sarawak:
- Many questions raised by elected State Assembly-persons for written answers have not be answered and there is evidence, from at least the Opposition bench, that the number of written answers not supplied has been increasing;
- There is either laziness on the part of the Cabinet Ministers to answer questions or they are derelict in their reespons9bilities in ensuring that their Ministries and Departments provide written answers to the elected State Assembly-persons during the Meeting;
- Inability and/or refusal to answer questions will promote non-accountability and non-transparency and will generate ridicule to the administration which is both unhealthy and dangerous.
For the derelict of their responsibilities to provide written answers to elected State Assembly-persons, IT IS MOVED that the salaries of all the Ministers (which term is defined to include Assistant Ministers) be deducted by RM100.00 per month with immediate effect.
