Najib’s political funding reform untimely, incredulous, says MACC panel member

Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s announcement of a national consultative committee on political funding is seen by a majority of Malaysians an attempt by the prime minister to shift the spotlight from the questionable RM2.6 billion found in his private accounts, said a member of the anti-graft oversight committee.

Lim Chee Wee, the Operations Review Panel member of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), said ordinarily such an announcement would be applauded.

“But extraordinarily, given the circumstances leading to Najib’s announcement it is seen by a large majority of Malaysians as an insincere move to distract in a disingenuous manner the perceived wrong of the alleged donation,” he told The Malaysian Insider.

Lim, a former Malaysian Bar president, said the critical action should be disclosure by Najib to both law enforcement and the public of the sources of funds and expenditure.

“The people are cynical and the explanation beggars belief,” he added.

Najib on Friday said the national consultative committee on political funding would develop a plan to ensure transparency and governance over party funds.

He said it was a necessary move to ensure healthy politics, adding that he had mooted proposals to regulate political funding since 2009 but did not receive any response.
