PAS will start a petition asking the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to advise Datuk Seri Najib Razak to resign after “the Auditor-General’s Report card showed he has failed as prime minister and chief executive of the government.”
PAS vice-president Datuk Mahfuz Omar told reporters that the 2010 Auditor-General’s Report showed that the Najib administration has failed to stop wastage and corruption in the government.
“If this was the private sector, the chief executive officer would be sacked,” he said of scandals outlined by the Auditor-General.
The report said the government’s debt had risen to RM407 billion or 51 per cent of GDP and highlighted cases of mismanagement including payment of bonuses by loss-making GLCs and a RM73.6 million cattle-farming project linked to minister Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil that met only 40 per cent of breeding targets.
Mahfuz, who is Pokok Sena MP, said PAS would begin collecting signatures next week.
“Even 50,000 to 60,000 are enough to show public anger. We know on Facebook there are more than 100,000 protesting the 100-storey Menara Warisan Merdeka,” he added.
The audit report was only made public last Monday, more than two weeks after Budget 2012 was tabled.
Opposition lawmakers accused Barisan Nasional (BN) of deliberately delaying the report so it could not be debated at length by MPs.
It goes to show that they have alot to hide if the OSA was not enacted l bet many would be charged in court with all their details for scrutiny by the public. We need transparency and accountability to be practised otherwise every auditor report is the same as toilet paper.
