Johor housing Bill to be amended

NUSAJAYA: The Johor Housing and Real Property Board Bill 2014 will be amended to include a provision that the Sultan is to act on the advice of the Mentri Besar.

The amendment, which reads “role of the Johor Ruler is on the advice of the Mentri Besar”, was announced by Mentri Besar Datuk Mohamed Khaled Nordin during the state assembly sitting here, Sunday.

Khaled said that other clauses in the Bill which mention the Johor Ruler would be changed to “state authorities”.

The Bill is expected to be tabled at the state assembly sitting on Monday.

It had been reported that the Bill would empower the Sultan to appoint Johor Housing and Real Property Board members, oversee its accounts and also dissolve the board.

It is understood that the Johor Ruler would also be able to determine the remuneration of board members, approve the appointment of a director and pass the estimated expenses for each following year before seeking the state government’s approval for the allocations.
