1 2 3Social media has been abuzz since yesterday about the scale of financial lapses found in the Government Ministries. Some netizens in referring to the Law and Home Affairs Minister K ’s Facebook post, asked if he had a comment about the Government’s lapses which are much bigger in scale.
1Mr had said that the KPMG’s latest report on Aljunied-Hougang Town Council painted “a devastating account of the Workers’ Party’s mismanagement of its town council”.

The Ministers in-charge of the various Government agencies would have to respond to the AGO’s damning report when it is submitted to the President and presented in Parliament. Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC) will then deliberate on the report and may call these agencies to account for the lapses where it deems necessary.
