100 Day Report: Malaysians are not impressed with ministers performance
With Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob enforcing that ministers are required to publish the 100-day report card, Malaysians are expecting disappointing reports as they are left unimpressed.
The Prime Minister in a statement wrote that ministers are required to do so for the people to evaluate their performance in each ministry. He added that the government appointees are required to prove their ministry performance, leadership evaluation and public perception.
However, Malaysians are not too optimistic about the government’s performance as some don’t attend Parliament sessions to discuss reforms.
Moreover, some are afraid that after the 100-day report, the ministries would go back to their lethargic ways.
Joe Chin wondered how could change happen if Parliament is empty most of the time.
He said, “It’s already almost 2 months since you (Ismail Sabri) became PM, yet your report card shows you busily appointing endless more people into positions of power to bleed the taxpayers.”
Malaysians have also commented on the hypocrisy of the government with the recent bumiputera proposed laws.
Donald Vincent claims how can a leader go to an international stage and promote the ‘Malaysian Family’ concept but return home and promote 51 per cent equity against the non-bumis.
He added, “That’s your Report card work so far!”
Mahmud Jaafar agreed that ministers need public evaluation but were wary that the public could have a negative bias.
He believes there are some ministers like the Health Minister, Khairy Jamaluddin, who have output commendable work in Malaysia’s vaccination process.
Mahmud also suggested, “Poor performance from ministers shall be subject to salary and allowance reduction or even termination.”
