May 28, 2008

Malaysiakini (FT Gerakan chief to head Pakatan's task force) reported today that Gerakan FT Chief Dr. Tan Kee Kwong, former deputy land and cooperative development minister, has been roped in by the Pakatan Rakyat Selangor State Government to be its co-chairman together with Dr Nik Mohd Zain Nik Mohd Yusof as part of a six member task force for land management.

Tan Sri Khalid in announcing this today said both Dr. Tan and Dr. Nik are very experience in land matters.

Khalid said that the state government considers the issue of land management very seriously. Khalid said that the task force will be set up as an independent body to “study and analyse state land administration, policies, issues and problems as well as ways to resolve land problems in Selangor”.

“In addition, the task force will be evaluating the effectiveness of the state government’s e-tanah (online) system.”

The body will make recommendations to the state government on improving the system.

“The issue of overlapping land claims and land status has always cropped up. This is not a new matter in Selangor since all other states face the same problem,” Khalid told journalists after chairing a meeting of the state cabinet.

Will Dr. Tan incur the wrath of Gerakan as happened to Lee Kah Choon???
