'Minister should leave Water Dept Director appointment up to AGC'

26th March, 2019

KOTA KINABALU: The State Infrastructure Development Minister should leave the issue of the appointment of the Water Department Director to the Attorney General Chambers and, ultimately, to the court of law, said former Chief Minister of Sabah, Datuk Yong Teck Lee.

He was responding to press reports of the Infrastructure Development Minister stating that the appointment of the Water Department Director is lawful.

“I also urge all legitimate public servants to bear in mind that if the appointment of the Director of Water Department is lawful and valid, then the quality, experience, seniority and professionalism of all public servants are at serious risks of political interference at the highest level,” he urged in a statement issued on Monday.

Yong also warned that the consequences of having an unqualified and incompetent public servant as head of an important government department could be damaging to public interests and safety.

“For instance, the 1,335 workers at water treatment plants all over Sabah have yet to get their pay ever since January due to administrative weaknesses in the government. Surely the sufferings of these 1,335 have a major impact on staff morale and performance,” he cited.
