The Minister for Housing says it cannot work with the Real Estate Licensing Board to effectively address the shortage of low-cost housing.
Minister Premila Kumar was responding to comments by REALB Chair Dr Abdul Hassan who says Housing Authority should welcome collaborations with other stakeholders as demand for low-cost housing continues to rise.
He had said there is a lack of efficiency and effectiveness by the Authority in doing its work.
Kumar in her response says REALB has got a different jurisdiction, one that is not aligned to Housing Authority.
She says REALB is only responsible for licensing the Real Estate agents and nothing else.
