Selangor’s Exco Village – a waste of public funds

THE Selangor Government has spent more than RM20mil on the Exco Village to house all 10 state exco members “under one roof”. 

The rationale behind this, said Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo, was to enable the exco members to communicate better and meet at short notice should there be an emergency. 

However, after two years, only four of the exco members took up the offer and are living in the five-room bungalows.  

To make matters worse, at least three of the other bungalows are occupied by relatives of the state exco members.  

One is used as a guest house by one of the councillors who visits the premises occasionally. 

The luxury quarters were completed amidst controversy in early 2005 when state opposition leader Teng Chang Khim claimed that the project was a waste of public funds as in any case state exco members received a monthly housing allowance of RM2,000.
