Khir: Broom award for officials a success

Khir: Broom award for officials a success


SHAH ALAM: Former Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Khir Toyo has claimed that the controversial broom award he introduced proved successful in providing the necessary push for local councils to perform better.

He said his actions, which was later slammed by many for being humiliating, had brought positive results when the council that received the “award” last year became the best performer this year.

“I was accused of humiliating the officer and now, the same officer got the best performance award. It shows that what I did was right,” Dr Khir told a press conference after the Shadow Executive Council meeting here yesterday.

Last year, Dr Khir presented a broom to Hulu Selangor District Council chief Tukiman Nail and Hulu Selangor Land Office’s former district officer Mislan Tugiu for failing to collect assessment above the 50% mark required for 2006.

Dr Khir said the performance of the council had improved from 47% to 94%.
