THE renovation for cabinet ministers' offices at Parliament House after the March 8 general elections, cost RM2.3 million, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said.
The direct negotiation tender (design and build) was given to Isbul Holdings Sdn Bhd, based at Plaza Masalam, Shah Alam.
The project also involved initial works (RM300,000), demolishing (RM25,000), build and renovate (RM670,609), furnishing (RM594,200), telephone wiring, SMATV and audio (RM258,501), electrical wiring (RM90,975), electrical wiring in souvenir room (newly built) (RM10,470), mechanical (RM38,945) and office equipment (RM311,300).
Not so much, I suppose. But what about a former Dewan Rakyat Speaker who ordered a renovation cost of RM3 million for his office, about 2 years ago? How about the rest of the ministers?
Luckily, his term as the speaker only lasted for a year…Padan muka!
