Councillors in local councils around Selangor are currently being evaluated.
They have gone through a self-assessment and now we’re waiting for the mayors, council presidents and state assemblymen to give their comments,” local government, research and studies committee chairman Ronnie Liu said.
Liu was officiating at the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) Chinese New Year open house at the Civic Centre car park. The event was organised by the various residents associations and Rukun Tetangga in the city.
He said that in the self-assessment, councillors would have to list out what they achieved since they took office, the courses attended, and accolades earned.
“We’ll also judge them on their abilities, creativity, relationship with the people and their command of language. We will change those who are not performing or have a tarnished image,” Liu said.
Liu said that there were about five councillors within the state who had resigned and they will be replaced.
The VIP guests also joined in a short procession around the area with a convoy of decorated cars, and lion and dragon dance performances.
