Fair national budget allocations?

DAP National Deputy Chairman and MP for Kepong Dr Tan Seng Giaw urges the Federal Government to improve the system of allocations of the national budget to ensure fair distribution to all states including Sabah and Sarawak.

The allocations must be spent effectively. There must be genuine measures to overcome all forms of irregularities including corruption.

The Central Government is talking about the Key Performance Index (KPI) and National Key Result Area (NKRA). We would like to see that these are enforced meaningfully in all aspects of the administration.

At present, the Government is using Modified Budgeting System. Next year, this will be replaced by Outcome-Based Budgeting (OBB). Let the Government announce how it is going to implement OBB. Would it involve the Sabah and Sarawak or other State Budgets?

Keeping Central Government or any state government on its toes is imperative. No government should be left with the idea that it can do whatever it likes.

Dr Tan Seng Giaw
