Cuepacs on reason for reduced majority


PUTRAJAYA: The government's refusal to pay civil servants RM2,000 each in honorarium and its competency level appraisal system, Penilaian Tahap Kecekapan (PTK), caused a drop in the winning majority of Barisan Nasional's Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor when he won re-election to the Putrajaya seat, said Cuepacs president Omar Osman.

Public servants make up the majority of voters in Putrajaya.

Omar said national issues such as high prices of goods also caused more voters to back the Pas candidate.

He said Cuepacs' stance on PTK was clear.

"We want it to be abolished as it is the cause of pent-up frustration among civil servants, especially the seniors."

Omar also said Cuepacs would bring up the matter again in its meeting with Public Service Department officers on March 25.
