KUCHING – Sentosa State Assemblyman, Chong Chieng Jen called to the Jabatan Perkhidmatan Awam (JPA) to set a KPI (Key Performance Index) in the next three years to increase the number of Chinese, Indians and Dayaks in the civil service.
Chong said in 2009 statistic showed that the number of Chinese in the civil service before the NEP in 1970 was 24% and had dropped to 6% while Indians from 17% to 4% while the Others was 2%. The rest were Malays.
He said SUPP had told the people recently that they would help the Chinese to file in application for the civil service to increase the number of civil services for Chinese.
“9 our of 10 people who wants to look for job in the Civil service are educated, internet savvy and know at least two languages. They do not need the SUPP to apply for them as they know how,” he said.
Calling it a cheap publicity stunt, Chong said the JPA should ensure that more Chinese, Dayaks and Indians were accepted into the Civil service.
“Even the Dayaks did not have the statistic shown so it is presumed that they are in the Others category,” he said.
Chong said all these years, those in the JPA had systematically ensure that the Chinese and Indians are not absorbed into the civil service.
SUPP is in the government and it is not helping the people how to apply for job but rather to ensure a change of policy for the betterment of all.
“Dont be doing things like rendering service of a postman, go and change the policy,” he said.
He said when the matter was brought up in the Dewan, he was told that he should not asked for the statistic of the breakdown of races as it is sensitive.
“The State government did not even have the guts to show the people the imbalance of races working in the civil service,” he added.
