Teamwork is essential for any organisation to succeed. Be it corporate or in politics.
In the last general election, Merdeka Centre had highlighted one of the negative perception bugging Pakatan Rakyat was the perceived inability for the three component parties, namely PAS, PKR and DAP to work together.
In Selangor, this ugly head again rears its head, this time on the state Menteri Besar Khalid Ibrahim.
DAP Sekinchan state assemblyman Ng Suee Lim openly advised Khalid to be more of a team player rather than a one-man show in running the Selangor state government.
"Don’t be a one-man show… Try to delegate tasks to Sekijang (Ahmad Yunus Hairi), Sabak (Sallehin Muhyi) and Seri Kembangan (Ean Yong), so that every six months they can present the reports," Ng was quoted saying by Malay tabloid Sinar Harian when debating the motion of thanks on the royal address yesterday.
Ng said the centralisation of power in the hands of Menteri Besar had made it appeared that Khalid does not trust his own cabinet and causing others to have no work.
Ng’s complaint may look new in public domain, but in inner circle of politics, this disgruntlement on CEO-style Khalid is definitely not recent.
Let’s hope Khalid will heed Ng’s advice this time.
