Bonus of RM300 an Appreciation to Civil Servants, Not to Fish for Votes


SHAH ALAM, 5 Apr: The move to give a bonus of RM300 to civil servants of Selangor is an appreciation for their contribution in helping the State Government achieve many successes over the past five years of governance.

Chief Minister, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim said that the decision is not intended to fish votes for Pakatan Rakyat (PR) in the upcoming 13th General Elections (GE-13).


“I believe the RM300 will not cause them to be influenced because they have their stand.

“Whether they want it or otherwise, we have to appreciate the efforts of civil servants who have much helped the State Government in exercising good governance,” he said after officiating the ‘Nestle Fitnesse Malaysia Women Marathon’ at I-City today.

In reply to another question, Abdul Khalid said that the State Executive Council will continue to use official State Government vehicles to carry out their respective duties.

This is because even though the Selangor State Legislative Assembly is dissolved, the Exco still go about their normal duties in the Selangor interim government.

Prior to that, Abdul Khalid officiated the ‘Nestle Fitnesse Malaysia Women Marathon’ which will be held this coming Sunday morning.

The running event which is the first ever held to date in Malaysia managed to attract more than 1,800 entries, including world famous female runner Kathryn Switzer and Couple on the Run, Sue and Andrew O’Brien.

The 42.19km run route will pass through some interesting places in Shah Alam such as the Blue Mosque, the Palace of the Selangor Sultan, two lakes, the State Museum, Shah Alam Stadium, Shah Alam Royal Theatre and others.
