Don't Misinterpret Abdullah's Style Of Administration, Says Ong

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 18 (Bernama) -- Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's style of administration should not be wrongly assumed that he has lost control, said Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting.

He said Abdullah had provided a clear direction for the nation and always adopted a democratic style by taking into consideration the views of Cabinet members and others, when making decisions.

"His democratic style should not be wrongly assumed by anyone that there is no longer control (in Abdullah's administration)," he told a press conference after officiating a meeting of the National Housing Council, here Monday.

Ong was asked to comment on the Prime Minister's statement in Havana, Cuba Sunday that he had his own way of bringing reforms in the country.

Speaking to Malaysian journalists covering the Non-Aligned Movement's summit there, Abdullah said there were still many people who did not understand his style of administering the country.

"The people want a more open government, not one that is autocratic where everything is controlled until no one is able to speak up," he said.

Abdullah had also said that he was committed to bring changes in his administration but stressed that critics should accept that he had his own way of doing things.

He had been asked to comment on remarks in Parliament by Kota Baharu MP Datuk Zaid Ibrahim that the Prime Minister had not made reforms that had been promised after he took over the post three years ago.

Ong said Abdullah was actually still in control and that his methods were suited to what was wanted by the people now, which was a transparent government.
