This is the first time Benedict Lopez has received a report card from a sitting MP.

Today, 9 May, is one year since Pakatan Harapan defeated Barisan Nasional in the 2018 general election. History was created in our country for the first time since independence in 1957.

Returning from a dinner last night, I received a WhatsApp report card from Lembah Pantai MP YB Fahmi Fadzil outlining his achievements over the past year.

This is the first time I received a report card from a sitting MP on the work he has carried out in Lembah Pantai. In his report card, YB Fahmi summarised his achievements over the past one year.

  1. Restored the name and heritage of Kampung Kerinchi
  2. Organised regular Town hall sessions to listen to the issues and challenges facing the residents of Lembah Pantai
  3. Implemented the Projek Angkat (Foster Project) scheme to assist 2,400 house owners in Taman Seri Sentosa obtain their strata ownership titles
  4. Expanded the People’s Tuition Programme to include free English language classes
  5. Introduced a food bank project with reasonable prices for fresh fish – a programme benefiting the bottom 40% of households
  6. Came up with a traffic plan for Kampung Kerinchi and Pantai Dalam
  7. Brought in the Free GoKL bus service

Lembah Pantai’s diligent MP appears to have scored well among his constituents in his first year in office. I hope all other MPs can submit their report cards to their constituents like Fahmi.

Benedict Lopez was director of the Malaysian Investment Development Authority in Stockholm and economics counsellor at the Malaysian embassy there in 2010-2014. He covered all five Nordic countries in the course of his work. A pragmatic optimist and now an Aliran member, he believes Malaysia can provide its people with the same benefits and privileges found in the Nordic countries - not a far-fetched dream but one that he hopes will be realised in his lifetime
