The Project

Project Owner

Chegne Peck Yean




Residents have been too ad hoc in making complaints and have not strived for a systemic and structural change in the running of the city council. There is a lack of institutionalise public participation.


We would be conducting Citizenship Education Classes for the residents in the area of responsibilities of councillors, ADUN, MPs and the role of the State in creating a Liveable and Sustainable City.
We would also be conducting a National Conference on Citizenship and Local Council Elections in Kuala Lumpur.

Target Beneficiary

The citizenship education classes are held throughout the Petaling Jaya area

Impact Parameters

1 – Number of residents that attend our local courses in all 24 Wards
2 – Number of attendees at the National Conference
3 – Awareness of the need for local council elections of mayor and councilors
4 – Closer unity of Residents Association in all the 24 wards.

Project Endorsement


MyPJ, (Coalition of PJ Residents Association). MyPJ have been working closely with MBPJ for over 10 years in restructuring the systems and structure of MBPJ to improve service delivery.

  • Citizen engagement & empowerment within community. This is to provide good opportunities and accessibility to citizens by the authorities, in whichever social field, to develop capabilities that are valuable to actively participate in the development and decision making of a community. Syabas.

  • Saya sokong sepenuh projek kemasyarakatan ini dan berapa Besar kerajaan PH menyokong & membiayai projek Unggul ini.

  • Indeed citizen engagement and participation is needed to hold office bearers accountable and enable meaningful steps to be taken where it counts to help ALL people living in the municipality and not be biased in anyway.
