C4: Selangor FOI better than Penang's

Susan Loone  |  Published:  |  Modified:

Selangor's Freedom of Information (FOI) Act is better than Penang's, an anti-corruption watchdog said, as it compared the legislation between the two Pakatan-led states.

Center to Combat Corruption and Cronyism (C4) director Cynthia Gabriel said Penang did not express its CAT (competency, accountability and transparency) principles clearly in the preamble of the Act.

Selangor, on the other hand, states very clearly that the Act is to address the issue of accountability and transparency in governance, she said.
