“The RM9.9mil in the Balkis bank account transferred to the Association of Wives of Ministers and Deputy Ministers (Bakti), was done in accordance with the organisation’s constitution and accounted for, as the auditor had finalised the 2007 accounts.”

Fortunately, some members of the media caught this on camera.

Unfortunately, we can’t march right in to stop them because (i) we haven’t been sworn in; (ii) police has cordoned off the state office since Saturday night.

Vote for ‘cleaner’ Selangor, says PKR
Fauwaz Abdul Aziz | Mar 6, 08 5:44pm

PKR Selangor candidates today urged voters to come out in full force on polling day Saturday to issue a ‘no confidence’ vote against the ‘abuses’ of Menteri Besar Dr Mohd Khir Toyo.

Citing a litany of scandals pertaining to development projects, perks given to state government officials, former Kelang assemblyperson Zakria Mohd Deros, and the Broga and Ijok incinerator projects, they said a vote for Khir would be a vote to further “weaken the Selangor state”.

“We call on all Selangor voters to choose wisely. A vote for Khir would weaken the Selangor state,”said PKR Selangor deputy chief Yaakob Sapari at a press conference in Petaling Jaya.

A well-written letter in Malaysiakini yesterday.

Selangor vs Singapore?
Benjamin Tan | Mar 3, 08 4:29pm

I read with great interest when Selangor Menteri Besar Mohd Khir Toyo recently commented that Selangor is in a position to compete with our southern neighbour, Singapore. He said that in a few years times, the country’s so-called ‘most developed state’ would be in par with the city state of Singapore. Anyone reading his comments should take it with a pinch of salt and I hope this will not be another reason for fellow Singaporeans to laugh at us kampung boys again.I am sorry to inform Khir Toyo that as time passes, the gap between the city state and Selangor will only widen, and there is no way that Selangor could play catch up with Singapore if it continues to be ruled by the same kind of people who have failed Selangor (in this case), and the nation since our independence. The fact that there is a need to make comparison with Singapore, is also testimonial that Selangor has failed under his leadership.
