Putrajaya, Jan. 29 - Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad launches the National Anti-Corruption Plan (NACP) 2019-2023 as one of the government's initiatives in realizing the government's manifesto towards a nation with integrity and free from corruption.
Themed 'Breaking the Corruption Chain', the NACP is a developed plan specifically for implementation within five years.
The implementation of this plan was developed by the Governance, Integrity and Anti-Corruption Center (GIACC), the Prime Minister's Department in collaboration with other government agencies.
This specific plan was developed to set a practical goal based on initiatives to be taken by every government and private agency to address corruption, integrity and governance issues for the next five years.
Tun Dr Mahathir said the plan was prepared through a process that took into consideration the aspirations and expectations of Malaysians in the fight against corruption.
"The National Anti-Corruption Plan comes as a reminder and warns all current and future leaders of Malaysia and its people do not accept corrupt practices and it is a vile and repulsive practice”, he said.
The NACP was developed to replace the National Integrity Plan (PIN) and it was decided at the Cabinet’s Special Committee on Anti-Corruption (JKKMAR) meeting on June 8, chaired by the Prime Minister.
Also present were Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail; Chief Secretary to the Government Datuk Seri Dr Ismail Bakar; Director-General of Governance, Integrity and Anti-Corruption Center, Prime Minister's Department (GIACC), Tan Sri Abu Kassim Mohamed; Chief Commissioner of the MACC, Dato 'Sri Mohd Shukri Abdull, Cabinet Ministers, Ministers and Chief Ministers.
