New batch of MBPJ councillors to be sworn in this week

PETALING JAYA (July 10): The Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) will soon see fresh councillors in action.

The Star reported today that a new group of two dozen councillors will be sworn in this week.

They will fill seats vacated following the end of the previous term on June 30.

“We will have the swearing in done as soon as I receive the list from the state and if they give me the list tomorrow (July 10), then we can swear them in even faster,” PJ mayor Datuk Mohd Azizi Mohd Zain told The Star yesterday.

Mohd Azizi also said that the list should reach him by the end of this week and he wanted the process to be expedited.

He also assured that there have been no problems with MBPJ’s operations even though committee meetings involving councillors have been stopped since June 30.

“Even for tender processes, councillors are only observers so there isn’t much of a problem for projects to be carried out,” Mohd Azizi told the daily.

He also said that there will most probably be a list of 11 names from PKR, 10 from DAP, two: Amanah and one: Bersatu, with more than half being “new faces”, The Star reported.
