IPOH: It is alright for Umno assemblymen not to submit their asset declarations to the Perak state assembly Speaker, says Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu.

The Perak Mentri Besar said it was fine as long as they still made the asset declaration to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

“To me, the Speaker is just facilitating the process by collecting all (declarations) to submit to the MACC.

“But if Umno does not want to respect the institution, who am I to make them?

“They have been the government for 60 years yet they don't have respect for the Speaker,” he said this after attending a “Jasamu Dikenang” programme here on Monday (July 29).

Perak Barisan Nasional chairman Datuk Saarani Mohamad was reported to have said that Umno assemblymen will not submit their asset declarations to the state Speaker Datuk Ngeh Koo Ham and were prepared to face any action.

Meanwhile, Ahmad Faizal said he has yet to submit his asset declaration.

“I’m still preparing mine. The state executive council members are also updating theirs,” he said.
