KUALA TERENGGANU – The Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) has not received any requests from the opposition-ruled states to implement the Corruption-Free Pledge (IBR), until now.
MACC chief commissioner Datuk Dzulkifli Ahmad said that even though the pledge is an initiative of the state government to show their commitment to fight corruption and abuse of power, it strongly encouraged all state governments to implement it.
“If there is a request (from the opposition-ruled states), God willing, we will go. Indeed we encourage all states to take the pledge to show their sincerity and integrity to fight corruption, it depends on the top leadership in the state,” he said.
He was speaking to reporters after witnessing Terengganu Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Razif Abdul Rahman and nine exco members reciting and signing the pledge here today.
Terengganu is the the seventh state signing the IBR after Sarawak, Kedah, Melaka, Negeri Sembilan, Perlis and Perak.- BERNAMA
