The Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) To Be Abolished
The Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) will be abolished, with its responsibilities due to be taken over by the Transport Ministry following an announcement by Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad in The Star Online.
The Prime Minister additionally stated that several other Government agencies deemed as "political" or “non-essential” will be abolished or redeployed in a raft of changes.
The Star Online reports that this includes the National Professors Council (MPN), Special Affairs Department (Jasa), the Residents’ Representatives Committee (JPP) and Malaysian External Intelligence Organisation (MEIO).
"All these (institutions) will be disbanded," said Dr Mahathir Mohamad in The Star Online, after chairing the first Cabinet meeting at Perdana Putra.
