KUALA LUMPUR – The three-month period given to all 222 Members of Parliament (MPs) to declare their assets to the Speaker of Dewan Rakyat was due. However, only 160 MPs complied.
The submission of documents ended at 5.00 pm, said the Minister at Prime Minister’s Department, Liew Vui Keong.
All 138 MPs from Pakatan Harapan from DAP, PKR, Amanah and Bersatu have declared their assets.
“The assets declaration was due at 5.00 pm. Only 160 MPs from the 222 have declared their assets and submitted their documents to the Speaker of Dewan Rakyat. A copy of the documents will be submitted to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission.
“However, only three MPs from the opposition declared their assets. Two of them are from BN. One from UMNO and one from MCA,” he told the media practitioners at the lobby of the Parliament in a news conference today.
On a relevant update, Vui Keong said that the MPs who have yet to make their assets declaration can make an appeal to the Speaker of Dewan Rakyat.
“They need to make an appeal to the Speaker today and it would be up to his discretion. Today is the deadline as what we have finalised before this.
“Those who refuse to do that would be regarded as contempt of the hall as this was agreed unanimously earlier and it would be unfair to breach the promise,” he said.
The assets declaration is as the following:
PKR (50); DAP (42); Amanah (11); Warisan (9); UPKO (1); GPS-PBB (11); GPS-PRS (2); GPS-SUPP (1); GPS-PDP (1); PSB1; PBRS (1) and PBS (1). –MalaysiaGazette
