Anwar: Direct negotiation a thing of the past, all govt procurement needs to go through proper tendering process

Speaking at a gathering with the staff of the Prime Minister’s Department today (29 November), Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim announced that all government procurements can no longer be conducted without proper tendering process.

He said that the unity government under his leadership, would not allow leakages or corruptions to continue in the country.

“Procurements approvals without tender are no longer acceptable. With this, I would like to call on all of you to work together as a team. Let’s be committed to saving our country,” he said.

In addition, Anwar said that when he was the Finance Minister, he had given instructions to his department not to allow his family members or close friends to have interests in government-related projects.

“This country needs a change. The damages are not done by the civil servants, but rather their leaders’ own weaknesses,” he said.

Anwar added that although Malaysia was once at the top and has achieved tremendous success, but we have digressed in terms of economic stability. This is because of violations of laws and fraud cases involving leaders and civil servants.

“Hence, I hope we can bring this spirit together to change the country for the better,” he said.

A new chapter for government servants

Meanwhile, Anwar also said that he is not interested in ‘digging’ the problems of the previous government, but to focus on working to improve the people’s lives.

“In general, the people’s lives are not as bad as in some countries, but they are in a rather difficult situation.”

“I’m not interested in digging up old stories… but what is important now is the future, what we can and should do in preparing ourselves for the future,” he said.
