MELAKA -- Performance of civil servants, particularly those serving at the local authorities has always been the focus of the people who will then use it to evaluate the government’s efficiency.

Melaka Multimedia, Youth and Sports Committee chairman Kerk Chee Yee said the local authorities played very important role and close to the members of the public who were always expecting efficient services.

“The people have close relationship with the local authorities, hence, it is used to evaluate government’s performance, especially when comes to the new Pakatan Harapan (PH) government.

“The change in government has never happened in the country’s history, so the civil servants should give best services to reflect the level of government efficiency,” he told Bernama here today.

He said the people had given the mandate to PH to govern the country’s administration and if the performance remained unchanged it would not benefit the people.

“There are several problems that need to be resolved, especially after we implemented some internal changes, but it should not be used as an excuse to reduce the efficiency of the public service,” he said.
