PARLIAMENT | Second Finance Minister Johari Abdul Ghani has promised to ensure that opposition representatives will be able to support their constituents to apply online for affordable housing.
The minister said this at the Dewan Rakyat today, after Oscar Ling (DAP-Sibu) complained that opposition lawmakers were unable to support their constituents to apply for "Rumah Mesra Rakyat 1Malaysia (RMR1M)" on the Syarikat Perumahan Negara Bhd's (SPNB) website, which is compulsory in the application.
"Cannot, (when you surf the net,) I cannot click the word 'Sibu', it wouldn't appear (in the 'support' column). But an MP's support is compulsory and needed in the process," Ling said.
"The opposition nationwide has faced this problem. In Sibu, only one MP can offer the support. In Kuching, no MP can do that," he added...
