|no need to tell what you have or don't have before you assume office|
but then how to tell if someone in public office has "added"
or "not added" to his "assets"
dun wollie lah, I'll know one
Khalid only requires Selangor exco members to publicly declare only assets acquired or sold that take place during their time in office. But that will make full accountability more difficult to determine unless the assets of exco members prior to assuming public office are also declared.
It gave rise to DAP's Lim Guan Eng labelling Khalid's 'half pregnant' approach to the Pakatan practice of exco fully declaring their assets as being no different to the policy of BN.
And tell me why I am not surprised with Khalid's policy on this being criticized as akin to UMNO practice when we know the buah langsat doesn't fall far from the langsat tree.
But why has Khalid belakang pusing from his 1st term conduct? Was he 'under pressure', or did he feel that with a successful re-election he can 'relat ler'?
I have suspected PKR of being similar to (or even worse than) UMNO in the ketuanan department - see my post Selangor saga shows PKR's ketuanan mentality? And now PKR has added another issue for me to condemn and sneer at (reformasi my foot!), in Khalid Ibrahim's half-preggie policy on asset declaration by Selangor exco members.
On DAP's instruction the DAP members of the Selangor exco plus the Speaker will be making full declaration of their assets.
Khalid Ibrahim's lamentable decision-policy has changed Pakatan's or rather PKR's Transparency promise into one of Translucency, where soon it may become one of Opaqueness. That's what will happen when you have a half-pregnant policy where soon such a policy becomes 'policies'.
PKR's slide down the slippery slope of non-accountability is confirmed by Khalid Ibrahim's latest policy on asset declaration - Ptui!
But I hear complete silence from former-UMNO PKR leadership - Aanchua ah Anwar Ibrahim?
And what does Islamic PAS has to say? Also half pregnant?
