OMG. OMG. OMG. Unfreaking-believable.

For days we were left scratching our heads as to how we purportedly gave direct nego contracts amounting to RM6.6bn (even if it’s only <1.4% of total procurement).

And then finally, under pressure, MoF released the list.

And one cursory look at the list… OMG!!!

1 project alone – Klang Valley Double Tracking (Phase II) project (KVDT2) worth RM4.4bn (or >66% of the total accused direct nego value) was included in the list.

That’s preposterous because the contract for KVDT2 was awarded by BN before Harapan took over!!

Not only that, BN awarded the contract for RM5.265bn. But we wanted to terminate the contract because we believed that it was overpriced, like typical BN contracts.

Finally, after protracted negotiations, the contractor, DhayaMaju joint venture with LTAT agreed to reduce price by 15% to RM4.475bn, endorsed by the Cabinet.

Hello! Harapan saved the tax-payers RM790mil!!!

And the pengkhianat donkeys – Azmin Ali and Zuraida had the cheek to loudly proclaim in Parliament that the above was never tabled to Cabinet. Unsurprising perhaps, they must be sleeping on the job..

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 24 — A total of 101 projects with a procurement value of RM6.61 billion had been awarded through direct negotiations under the Pakatan Harapan government.

Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Abdul Aziz had given the details on these projects during the winding up session for the Ministry of Finance — Temporary Measures for Government Financing (Covid-19) 2020 today.

“In specific situation with the approval of the Finance Ministry, if it has urgent requirements in that it will affect government services and interest…procurement via direct negotiations can be implemented,” he said.

He said this in reply to a question from Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan (BN-Pontian) on the number and value of projects awarded by the previous government.

Tengku Zafrul’s reply caused an uproar in the Dewan Rakyat with the Members of Parliament demanding details on the direct negotiations.

Former Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng had denied this and said that the decision to give out tenders via direct negotiations had been discussed by the Cabinet.

However, Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali (Bersatu-Gombak) interjected, saying the matter was never discussed as was said. — Bernama
