KL MPs urge City Hall not to outsource management of community halls

EIGHT Kuala Lumpur MPs are calling for City Hall (DBKL) to ensure that all its community halls continue to be managed in-house and transparently.

In a joint statement on Friday (April 9), Cheras MP Tan Kok Wai, Bukit Bintang MP Fong Kui Lun, Seputeh MP Teresa Kok, Wangsa Maju MP Dr Tan Yee Kew, Lembah Pantai MP Fahmi Fadzil, Setiawangsa MP Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad, Batu MP P. Prabakaran, and Segambut MP Hannah Yeoh said DBKL must not outsource the management of the community halls to private companies or third parties.

The community halls were built using public funds and should therefore be available for the local community to use, they added.

For the benefit of the people, DBKL should manage the community halls transparently and not turn their operation over to the private sector, which would aim to make a profit instead, the statement read.
