PETALING JAYA: Malaysians who wish to complain about failures and shortcomings in the country’s institutions can air their grievances to the Committee for Institutional Reforms.
The committee said it will accept written representations from individuals and groups who wish to alert it about institutions that have structural defects or have failed to function according to the law.
In a statement, the committee said it will also accept representations from those who wish to inform it of institutions which have ineffective decision-making processes or inadequate redress mechanisms.
Such individuals and groups can submit written representations by May 28, 2018, to the Secretariat, Committee for Institutional Reforms, at Level 32, Ilham Tower, Jalan Binjai, 50450 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, with an email copy to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“The committee requests that the representations should be for the purpose of institutional reform and institutional issues and not about any personal grievances or individual misconduct of public officers.
“The committee will, if necessary, invite these individuals and groups for face-to-face meetings,” it said in the statement.
