SHAH ALAM, 23 Oct: The state government welcomes the commitment shown by the central government to standardise the implementation of the Strata Management Act 2013 for the good of the people of Selangor.
Chief Minister Mohamed Azmin Ali said that this is in in accordance with the status of a developed city; Selangor has a lot of development that involves strata buildings.
Therefore, he said that cooperation between both parties is needed to ensure that the Act benefits the people.
“From the state, we have brought up several propositions to the ministry in implementing this Act. I welcome the commitment of the ministry to give consideration to the proposal.
“I believe that this proposed improvement will bring about good for both parties,” he said during a media conference today.
Azmin said this after holding discussions with the Minister of Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government, Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan, who visited him.
Abdul Rahman said that Selangor has 50 percent of people who live in strata buildings, so it needs better services for strata building management.
“The Selangor State Assembly needs to approve a resolution to appoint a management tribunal committee which is agreed upon by the ministry.
“Thank you because the state government has made the decision to approve this resolution in the Assembly session next year,” he said.
He said that even though the Assembly is expected to take place in March next year, the ministry feels that this does not pose as a problem following the several improvements that will be carried out.
“I am confident in establishing this tribunal at latest the middle of next year,” he said.
