SYDNEY, April 16 — Australia Prime Minister Scott Morrison said today he would seek to establish an anti-corruption watchdog if re-elected next month, hitting out at the opposition Labour’s plan.Ahead of the May 21 general election, Morrison has come under pressure from Labour to set up a federal integrity commission, which he first promised in 2018.Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the establishment of the Coopmarts was necessary as the government realised that the cooperatives were able to play a bigger role to benefit the Malaysian families.Labour leader Anthony Albanese said Morrison has failed to establish a commission because of integrity problems in his conservative coalition.“Terengganu Bersatu will propose Muhyiddin as the prime ministerial candidate in GE15.“The reason why Scott Morrison doesn’t have a national anti-corruption commission is sitting on his front bench,” Albanese said, campaigning in far north Queensland.“This move will ensure that the benefits will be enjoyed by all Malaysian families especially those in rural areas or areas where the majority of them are from the B40 group, as well as the members of the cooperatives, consumers and entrepreneurs involved in the supply chain,” he said.In the campaign’s first week, Morrison has been accused of abandoning his promise to establish an anti-corruption agency, and failing to commit to set one up if he wins another term in parliament.He said the open house tradition can help strengthen the relationship between locals and community leaders regardless of race and religion.

Labour claims an anti-corruption watchdog, similar to the Independent Commission Against Corruption in New South Wales, is needed nationally to restore faith in Australia’s political system by probing misuse of federal funds in grants programs.He said the government through the Coop Community Mart Programme had set aside RM360,000 as infrastructure assistance and revolving capital for the establishment of Coopmarts in public housing areas, namely one in Putrajaya and another in Hiliran Ampang.Muhyiddin served as PM from March 2020 to August last year.In a campaign that has focussed on wages and inflation, polls this week showed Albanese’s centre-left Labour ahead of Morrison’s conservative Liberal-National Party coalition, even as they showed the prime minister extending his lead as the country’s preferred leader.Speaking in Melbourne, Morrison said that if re-elected he would “seek to implement” a watchdog but he would not be drawn on timing or whether it would be a priority.47 billion in revenue with a total membership of 7.He said the government’s had a “very serious policy” of over 300 pages, while labelling Labour’s proposal a “two-page fluff sheet”.Albanese said a Labour government would have an anti-corruption body “with teeth” in place by the end of the year.Based on its large membership, Ismail Sabri said the government believed that cooperatives could play a role in helping to reduce the cost of living of the people.― Bernama You May Also Like Related Articles.

It would be independent of government and be able to hold public hearings, he said.“It is one that will be real as opposed to their model that has been rejected by everyone,” he told reporters in Cairns.Ismail Sabri said the Cooperative Commission of Malaysia as of December last year showed that 2,581 cooperatives in the wholesale and retail sector had been registered with revenue amounting to more than RM820 million.— Reuters You May Also Like.
