SHAH ALAM: Issues and grouses pertaining to the Select Committee for Competency, Accountability and Transparency (Selcat) have been amicably settled in a two-hour closed-door meeting on Monday night.
A statement issued by the Selangor government’s press secretariat said everyone attending the meeting had arrived at a common consensus on the issues that were highlighted.
The meeting, chaired by Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim, was attended by Selangor Pakatan Rakyat assemblymen and Members of Parliament as well as the state’s district officers and municipal council presidents.
Also in attendance were State Legislative Assembly Speaker Teng Chang Khim, maverick executive council member Datuk Dr Hasan Ali, state secretary Datuk Ramli Mahmud, state legal adviser Datin Paduka Zauyah Be Loth Khan and state financial officer Datuk Mohd Arif Ab Rahman.
In the statement on Tuesday, Khalid said everyone attending the meeting collectively agreed that the issues at hand should be settled amicably.
“Everyone’s views and opinions were received openly to better and improve the administrative system,” Khalid said in the statement.
However, Khalid added that no specific decision had been made with regard to the suggestions as more in-depth discussion was required.
The fracas pertaining to Selcat took root after Dr Hasan accused the committee of bullying civil servants during its inquiry.
Dr Hasan had also made some allegations which were denied and described as being blatant lies by Teng, who chairs the Selcat committee.
