The left over role of the once powerful long house chiefs, village head and community heads is to relay government messages to the community and to relay residents’ grievances to the government, in this order. Their role seems to be the political extension of the ruling parties more than even the party members of the ruling coalition! They are pressured by the Rm800.00/month allowance to take orders and execute plans by the ruling parties. Put it another way they are party workers paid for by the government/public fund!
Are community leaders redundant?
