NEWLY elected Kuala Lumpur MPs have been taking turns to meet Kuala Lumpur mayor Tan Sri Mohd Amin Nordin Abd Aziz to discuss issues in their respective constituencies.

Bandar Tun Razak MP Datuk Kamarudin Jaffar, Setiawangsa MP Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad and Batu MP Prabakaran Parameswaran visited the mayor on Wednesday.

They were the second batch of MPs to meet the mayor, after Lembah Pantai MP Fahmi Fadzil, Bukit Bintang MP Fong Kui Lun and Kepong MP Lim Lip Eng visited the mayor’s office on Monday.

“The meeting went very well. We were given the opportunity to state our wishes as elected representatives of the people,” said Kamarudin.

He added that matters raised in the meeting included the gazetting of the Kuala Lumpur City Plan and uncontrolled development in their constituencies.

For the Bandar Tun Razak constituency in particular, Kamarudin said there were concerns that some of the development projects would replace recreational green spaces.

“The mayor responded positively to the matters discussed and agreed to take urgent action on these issues,” he added.

Kamarudin said Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) would review all deals and contracts related to developments in the capital city and agreed to release a complete report featuring a full list of development projects, their details and progress to all Kuala Lumpur MPs by May 30.

Nik Nazmi said the mayor responded positively to their statement that they wanted to bring about a new and more positive political culture.
