Sabah and Sarawak have submitted names of candidates for LHDN

KOTA KINABALU: The names of candidates from Sabah and Sarawak to sit on the Inland Revenue Board (LHDN) have been submitted to the Prime Minister and Finance Ministry.

Jonnybone Kurum, the political secretary to the Minister in the Prime Minister's Department (Sabah and Sarawak), said this in response to Parti Warisan deputy president Datuk Darell Leiking, who had called on the Sabah government to emulate Sarawak and name a candidate to sit on the LHDN.

"This matter was discussed during the Special Council on Malaysia Agreement 1963 meetings in December last year and April this year.

"Both the Sabah and Sarawak governments have forwarded their nominees, and the Sabah and Sarawak Affairs Division has submitted the names," he said in a statement on Tuesday (July 12).

Jonnybone, who is also Telupid assemblyman, said all parties have done their jobs and that they were in the process of making the appointments.

"The Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) state government has done their homework and settled the issue as stipulated in the MA63 and Federal Constitution.

"The GRS government is very thorough... So do not worry, they (civil servants) are way ahead and have taken care of all matters," he assured.
