THE three recommendations made by the National Governance, Integrity and Anti-Corruption Centre (GIACC) to the government will be tabled at the next meeting of the special cabinet committee on anti-corruption (JKKMAR), and later the cabinet.
Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Parliament and Law) Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar said the matter was agreed during his recent meeting with GIACC director-general Mohd Sallehhuddin Hassan.
“The recommendations involve the policy direction on the enactment of the bill related to political funding, the current status of the implementation of the National Anti-Corruption Plan 2019-2023 and the proposed development of the National Good Governance Plan (MyGovernance),” he said in a statement today.
Wan Junaidi said they also discussed the current status of the Ombudsman Bill, which he said is due to be tabled this year.
The minister said he also proposed for information on anti-corruption efforts be intensified by all government agencies to create a more positive perception of the seriousness of the government in fighting corruption.
He said the move would improve Malaysia’s position in the Transparency International Corruption Perception Index in future.
