PM: Heads of GLCs, GLICs and members of the judiciary must declare assets


PETALING JAYA: Chief executive officers of government-linked companies (GLC) and government-linked investment companies (GLICs) as well as members of the judiciary must declare their assets, says the Prime Minister.

Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob also said the mechanism for members of the administration, MPs and senators will be strengthened to improve the credibility and integrity of the government.

"A new Code of Ethics will also be introduced for MPs under the Houses of Parliament (Privileges and Powers) Act 1952 (Act 347) taking into the account the principle of separation of powers between the executive and the legislative body," he said in a statement after chairing the Special Cabinet Committee on Anti-Corruption (JKKMAR) Series 16 No. 2 meeting 2022 on Monday (Sept 19).

The new details and Code of Ethics will be announced by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) at the next JKKMAR meeting, he added.

The meeting was also briefed on the latest status of the Political Financing Bill, he said.

"The Bill will be regulated by an independent entity at both federal and state level," he said.

He said the meeting also agreed that amendments will be made to the Audit Act 1957 (Act 62) to empower professionalism, and guarantee independence of the Auditor General’s role.
