Today is something of an historic day for the country in our quest for a more accountable society.
Watch ‘live’ over ‘TV Selangor’ as the Selangor becomes the first state to table a Freedom of Information Bill for its first reading and debate.
We will have to scrutinise the enactment and evaluate how progressive the bill is.
That said, congratulations and well done for pushing through this enactment as a matter of principle. What about other Pakatan-ruled states?
And BN-ruled states? It’s just amazing to hear Selangor BN Aduns rejecting the Bill.
The debate also touched on the recent federal government action against opposition newspapers.
