KPIs: Ringing your own bell...

How do you define 'achievements' in 100 days? What have you achieved actually? The efforts or the results?

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak today announced the six leading ministers whom he described as the major achievers under the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) which he introduced to monitor the progress of his Cabinet members (read here...).

As expected, his deputy Muhyiddin Yassin tops the list, followed by his 'cousin brother' Hishamuddin, Nazri, Shahrizat, Shafie and Ong Tee Keat.

Hisham, according to Najib, has been successful in combating crime, Muhyiddin for widening access to quality and affordable education, Nazri for fighting CORRUPTION, Shahrizat for improving the living standards of the poors, Shafie for upgrading rural infrastructure and Ong for improving public transport in the country.

I may call this as 'ringing your own bell'. Its still too early to judge any of the Cabinet ministers' performance. I also think much credits should be given to Foreign Minister Datuk Anifah Aman who has shown tremendous recognition abroad for his highly diplomatic approach.

Another guy is Minister of International Trade and Industry Dato Mustapa Mohamed for his brilliant idea to improve Smidec and enhancing the opportunity for Bumiputras to access business loans.

Combating 'crime'? Its not an easy task for Hisham. As to date, I havent seen any move undertaken by Hisham to combat what is termed as 'crime' - not even at school level. He and Muhyiddin should work together.

Corruption? Nazri knows better, I suppose. Graft is as old as prostitution. Get down to the Cabinet members first. How much is the salary of a minister and his deputy? If one has served for one term, can he afford a RM1 million house?

As for Shahrizat, improving the living standard of the poors and low-income group will take years. The yardstick should not be based on providing assistance to a few single mothers or one or two 'industri kampung'.

How do you describe the public transport system today? Satisfied? Do you call it an achievement by adding more buses and taxis on the road or addressing the frequency of plies or getting rid of the discrepancies surrounding it?

Its a 'too soon' assessment.

Who is assessing the Prime Minister?

Bro,

I am in the opinion. if there is a KPI for performance of bloggers, yours will be among the top ten.

I salute you for speaking your mind, well in rating Nazri aziz as matop performer, emmm..., you should check his background, he owned a lot of property in Langkawi, Kuala Lumpur, Bangsar, etc....

Well, if being a lawyer, he make money, then why he need to be a minister, checked his family spending hadit, check Gutterunsensored.....
