Abstract

A critical problem concerning the functioning of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) of the state of Kedah is the delay in tabling the PAC Reports at the State Legislative Assembly (SLA). The delay in this particular process causes outdated information to be presented to the SLA as the PAC reviewed audited financial statements that were no longer current. Consequently, the relevancy of the PAC Reports issued is at stake as the comments and recommendations made by the PAC might be outdated. The PACs under study range over 3 parliamentary terms. The data revealed that the institutional setting and capacity building do not provide concrete explanations for the delay in PAC reporting. The individual alone as well as the collective behaviour of the PAC members also contribute to the PAC’s performance as study found that all the problems still prevail regardless of who the ruling party is. It is a massive challenge for PAC of state of Kedah to balance their performance and responsibilities to the public as it may fluctuate as personalities, interests, politics and public opinions reshaping the political landscape within the local context
