FREEDOM OF INFO BILL

FREEDOM OF INFO BILL


In line with the motto, "Aim for the Impossible, (which you can view it by clicking at the title of this post), another milestone has been made in the recent bill, the freedom of information bill, which was passed without debate. This great news was reported by Mr. Teh Eng Hock on his article, Selangor passes freedom of info Bill, State assembly approves enactment without debate after third reading on the Star on April 2, 2011. Thanks to Mr Teh for doing Malaysians a great favour of highlighting the landmark decision of Selangor. The state had put the so much talked transparency into practice The state government affair is thus  recognising and appreciating the people's power. This best practice should be truly welcomed and cultivated into our daily affairs should we truly want to bring progress to the country.

I viewed this move very positively as it not only makes the executive more transparent, but also more accountable to the people, who had voted for them in the first place. This seal the contract between both parties in law where they are liable to discharge their duties with due care. As such, I believe majority of the people will welcome it, which is the way to establish ABC (Trustworthy, Clean and Efficient) government, which was the motto sang by our previous PM. As such, the ruling party should be happy because the opposition is affirming their slogan and put them into action. We need to realise the drama, it has proven that the point that Malaysians have short memory is not true. It also reaffirms that we are serious about our slogan and we will put into practice as we preach so as to establish ABC government.Although it is a bit late to embark, after more than 50 years independence. At least, it is still better to be late, rather than never. Therefore, all the wake up calls that has been made so far is not wasted, but takes effect NOW. LONG Lives Malaysia. Needless to say that only changes will give different results and we don't need a genius to tell us that you don't expect different result by doing the same way like in the past.

It was also reported that the state executive councillor Elizabeth Wong, who tabled the bill, claimed that it was a historic point for Selangor and Malaysia. To Malaysian, we should see the light now and view it as a turning point to make things right so as to create a better place for its people. Another commendable point is that, such a bill was passed without debate. It shows that all parties have put aside their political differences and voted for it. Such a healthy move is worthy of praise as every MP has taken the peoples' interest above everything. In short, they give full respect to the hand who voted them in the first place. Hope that such an healthy move would occur more frequently in the near future.

According to the report, she told the House that no other state has dared to implement the Freedom of Information Enactment. This is a product of the people's power. 

In this connection, we should give more courage to other states, which have not been able to do so due to whatsoever reason they know best, so that they can overcome fear/doubt to effect the same move. Otherwise, how could we expect them to do so. To accept any change, one has to have an open mind and heart. If not, one can never learn.

As such, we appeal all other states to evaluate objectively and make the necessary changes so that they can bring progress to its people.

By doing so, we hope all parties will manage their resources more efficiently and effectively so as not to tax the people unnecessarily. Otherwise, the inflationary pressure will increase and the bankruptcy threat will ultimately affect Malaysia as predicted by Dato Seri Jala. 

To eliminate this threat, this freedom of information will serve as a tool to ensure there are no unnecessary wastages. More conducive environment will be created to attract Malaysia talents to come back and serve the country.
Let us examine ourselves closely and objectively. Let our conscience  show us the way, and move on. Thanks for your precious time to read this article to show you care.
