KUALA LUMPUR: One of Datuk Wira Chor Chee Heung’s top priority as the new Housing & Local Government (KPKT) Minister is to reduce public complaints against the Ministry and agencies under its purview.
“As long as the public has fewer complaints and people are more satisfied with the work carried out by the agencies, I am sure that would be a breakthrough for the Ministry,” said Chor during a press conference after the handover of duties from Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha on Monday June 7. Kong was appointed Transport Minister, replacing Datuk Ong Tee Keat.
Chor stressed that the top management in every unit in the Ministry will have to know their responsibilities well, and senior officials must have a hands-on approach to dealing with problems.
Chor is also looking to work closely with local governments to ensure policies issued by the Ministry are implemented. “Some local governments do not follow policies and this is an ongoing problem. My job is to convince them that if the policies are good, it should be implemented,” said Chor.
Other issues of immediate concern include public housing, solid-waste treatment and the redevelopment of Kampung Baru.The MCA vice-president, who served five terms as a member of the Parliament for the Alor Setar constituency, was Deputy Finance Minister prior to his current appointment.
