to choose developer
FOR the first time ever in Kuala
Lumpur, a selection process will be held
for fl at owners to choose a developer for
rebuilding of their property without any
Wellbeing Minister Datuk Raja Nong
Chik Raja Zainal Abidin said 480 PKNS
fl at owners in Kampung Kerinchi will
choose their developer via balloting at
8pm on Friday at Sekolah Menengah
Kebangsaan Sri Pantai, Jalan Kerinchi
Kiri, Lembah Pantai.
“Four companies have shown interest
to carry out the project since the
tender to rebuild the fl ats was opened
in November,” he said last week.
He said prior to voting, the ministry
will hold a briefing to introduce the
companies and their development
Counting of votes would be carried
out openly and the results would be
announced on the night itself.
Raja Nong Chik hoped that with the
new selection process there would be no
more allegation of political interference
or bias in the selection of developers.
“This move shows Barisan Nasional’s
sincerity in helping the poor to enjoy
a more comfortable life in the city in
line with the slogan ‘1Malaysia, People
First, Performance Now’ mooted by the
prime minister,” he said. – Bernama
