SHAH ALAM: The procedures and membership of the Selangor’s special Select Committee for Competency, Accountability and Transparency (Selcat) remain unchanged for the time being, said Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim.

He said this was decided at a two-hour meeting between him, state executive councillors including state PAS commissioner Datuk Dr Hasan Ali, Speaker Teng Chang Khim, district officers, municipal council presidents, assemblymen and Members of Parliament.

“We had reached a consensus that the issue will be resolved among us and we will take appropriate measures in conducting Selcat’s public hearing as it is accountable,” he told reporters after chairing the meeting at the state secretariat here yesterday.

Khalid said the meeting noted feedbacks and criticisms on the need to improve communications between Selcat panel members and government officers.

“There will be no revamp and Selcat will remain as it is, as had been decided in the state assembly,” he said, adding that any changes in Selcat’s status quo would be debated in the state assembly and not openly.

Meanwhile, Dr Hasan, who had been at the centre of controversy for criticising Selcat, said he accepted the decision but declined to comment. — Bernama
