CEOs, Directors and Upper Management of State owned companies and state linked salaries should no longer be paid exorbitant sums as salary, allowances, bonuses,etc.. As a guiding principle, no such persons should be paid salaries exceeding the salary of the Menteri Besar or no higher than RM20,000 per month. Director's allowances should not exceed RM10,000 but if the appointed Director is the Menteri Besar, Exco Member, ADUN or government employee, then there must be NO Director's allowances(and if there is, it should be paid back into the State coffers) - such persons shall only be entitled to travel reimbursements or other reimbursements - they already are being remunerated as 'wakil rakyat' and state employees and all they do as Directors is part of that job already. - Selangor, Azmin, Constitution Amendment, PKNS Scandal?, RM3 Billion,Open Letter by MI, Things to do ...?

S’gor speaker: Top brass of GLCs can’t hide pay
The excuse given that the information about the salaries and bonuses of GLCs top management is exempted under Selangor's Freedom of Information Enactment is simply not true, Yeoh said.
"GLCs receive state grants, they should not be able to rely on Freedom of Information Enactment exemptions because they are dealing with taxpayers’ money," Yeoh explained in a forum discussing the OSA in Kuala Lumpur today.
Yeoh said she had been told the information regarding the GLCs had not been released because it was against corporate governance code and that it was exempted from the Freedom of Information Enactment.
"I think the reason they keep giving excuses is because GLC directors are paid a lot of money. Because if the salary was like RM2,000, nobody would make all the effort to come up with these excuses," she opined.
She was referring to Kampung Tunku assemblyperson Lau Weng San's request for a list of top management in state GLCs and their salaries.
Lau (photo) said at that time he had waited over a month for an answer, but he was merely told that the information he requested was protected under the Personal Data Protection Act 2010.
This had prompted Gerakan Youth chief Tan Keng Liang to question if Selangor's Freedom of Information Enactment had been shelved under Azmin Ali's administration as Selangor Menteri Besar.
Following this, Azmin had instructed the state finance officer and state secretary to quickly respond to Lau's request.
Lau had then said he was thankful for Azmin's concern, and congratulated him for his transparency and openness. - Malaysiakini, 10/6/2015,

MB Azmin tells state sec to reveal GLC salaries
Lau (left in photo) on Monday told reporters his query during the state assembly and through a letter to the MB had not borne results as he was told the information is protected under the Data Protection Act 2012.
Following this, he said he received a call from Azmin and his political secretary Shuhaimi Shafie on Monday and Tuesday respectively addressing his query.
“I congratulate and thank the MB for his concern over the issue raised. Transparency and openness is the hallmark of a Pakatan Rakyat government,” he said.
Lau had requested for a list of those holding GLC top management and board of director posts, their salaries, bonuses and allowances.
He said replies to questions by state assemblypersons during the administration of former MB Abdul Khalid Ibrahim were more “complete”.
Lau’s statement on Monday prompted Gerakan Youth chief Tan Keng Liang to question if Selangor’s Freedom of Information Enactment has been shelved with Azmin as MB. - Malaysiakini, 21/5/2015
