KOTA BARU: The appointment of 636 Federal Development and Village Security Committee (JPKKP) chairmen in Kelantan will not create any conflict with the state government-appointed penghulu (village chiefs), says a senior federal officer.

Jasri Kasim, director of Kelantan State Development Department, Implementation Coordination Unit (ICU) in the Prime Minister’s Department, said the JPKKP appointments representing the Federal Government could help resolve certain matters, including the coordination of aid distribution.

“There is no issue having two parties (federal and state appointments) in one place.

“For example, if there are contributions or aid (for distribution), we will get the names from both parties, so all will get it,” he said after a Security and Civil Servants Solidarity with Palestine programme at Wisma Persekutuan here yesterday, Bernama reported.

Jasri said ICU was still waiting for a list of JPKKP candidates proposed by communities at the grassroots level.

He said the list was expected to be available by the end of this month.

“ICU will check the list and do security screenings to ensure the candidates really represent the people. We do not want outsiders who are not living in the villages to be nominated to represent the residents.

“After the verification process, we will recommend appointments to the Rural and Regional Development Ministry,” he added.
