Annuar Musa: Mayor is not part of YWP's board of trustees anymore

KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 19): Federal Territories Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa (pictured) has today clarified that there is no conflict of interest for the KL mayor as far as the Federal Territories Foundation’s (YWP) board is concerned.

“It was reported that there is conflict of interest [with the Kuala Lumpur Mayor]. I want to clarify that the mayor now is not part of YWP's board of trustees.

“Maybe last time, when the PAC did its investigations the Datuk Bandar used to be a member I'm not sure, that can be checked,” Annuar told a media conference at Parliament today, reported the Malay Mail.

“As far as I have observed, the mayor does not hold any position in the YWP and hence there is no conflict of interest between the mayor and YWP,” he said.

Earlier this week, PAC chairman Wong Kah Woh said YWP should be made into a statutory body that is free from political interference.

The PAC also said that more than 200 development orders were issued by DBKL before the Kuala Lumpur City Draft Plan 2020, which was approved by the Federal Territories minister.

It was also revealed YWP was registered as a private company which cannot be “scrutinised” by the National Audit Department.

Malay Mail reported Annuar saying that this “issue” should have been handled by the Federal Territories minister before him. Khalid Samad held the Federal Territories minister post under the previous Pakatan Harapan government.

“It was raised during Pakatan Harapan [was in office] for 22 months. This is a simple case, it should have been resolved, but to me, if it didn't happen it meant that there were no problems as opposed to what has been portrayed,” he said.

Annuar also added that the YWP is not a government agency and that it was not owned by the authorities.
