Joint Media Statement by Dr. Ong Kian Ming, MP for Serdang, Tony Pua MP for PJ Utara, Nurul Izzah, MP for Lembah Pantai
It is almost 2 years since the revelation by Tony Pua and Nurul Izzah that a large percentage of the FiT Quota for Solar PV was awarded to companies controlled by a certain individual who was related to a retired senior civil servant.
The application system was scandalised by the computerised “first-come-first-served” system. The then Chairman, Tan Sri Fong Chan Onn and CEO Datin Badriyah Abdul Malek had defended it as a “fair” system, despite criticism and protests from the industry and ourselves. The “first-come-first-served” system had not only allowed certain parties to design application strategies to win a larger share of the quota, the computer system also often crashed, resulting in chaotic and less than satisfactory outcomes.
