Kuala Langat Municipal Council (MPKL) has sworn in four new councillors for the term between Sept 2 and Dec 31, 2022.

They are Yong Keh Chyn, Naharanuar Ayob, Abu Bakar Mohamad and Mohd Safiee Harun.

Their appointments are following vacancies brought on by the split of Bersatu from Pakatan.

While Naharanuar and Abu Bakar are from PKR, Yong and Safiee are from DAP and Amanah respectively.

On his appointment, Yong said it was his second time as councillor. He previously served from 2009 to 2013. “I expect new challenges as this time the zone under my purview will include a major industrial area of Teluk Panglima Garang.

“Before this, I was mostly taking care of residential areas,” added Yong. He hopes his past experience in handling pertinent issues such as rubbish dumping and repairs to roads and drains will come in handy.

“I will study my area thoroughly first. But through experience, I have come to realise that if the above three issues are not handled well, they will lead to bigger problems such as dengue, poor road safety and flash floods,” said Yong.

No stranger to doing community service, Naharanuar, former personal assistant of Tanjung Sepat assemblyman Borhan Aman Shah, will sit on a council board for the first time.

“There will be three villages in my portfolio, so next week will be about meeting village heads to see what services we can best render to the villagers,” said the father of six girls.

Top on his list, he said, was to ensure the areas are able to receive basic amenities.

The four councillors were sworn in at the Cempaka Kuning meeting room in the MPKL Banting complex witnessed by council president Datuk Amirul Azizan Abd Rahim and deputy president Mohd Yasin Alwi, among others.

Amirul hoped the four would be able to work together with the council’s current team.

“They must not forget their role to act as intermediaries between the people and MPKL as they strive to help the council make decisions that are in the best interests of the former,” he said.

Meanwhile, at the Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) full board meeting, Rose Zuraini Marmuji was appointed its operations coordination deputy secretary.

She replaced Cheremi Tarman, who is now Selayang Municipal Council deputy president.

Cheremi’s duties as MBSA engineering department acting director has been handed to Hanif Basree Abdul Rahman.

“I hope the new appointees will contribute their expertise and help MBSA improve and grow,” said Shah Alam mayor Datuk Haris Kasim at the ceremony which was also attended by deputy mayor Mohd Rushidi Ruslan and councillors.
