PUTRAJAYA: Tan Sri Aseh Che Mat, 61, a former secretary-general of the Home Ministry, has been appointed president of Putrajaya Corporation effective Aug 1.
Federal Territories and Urban Well-being Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin, who made the announcement, said Aseh would succeed Tan Sri Samsudin Osman whose contract would expire on July 31.
Samsudin is the second president of the corporation and had served for eight years from Aug 1, 2004.
"It is hoped that Tan Sri Aseh's appointment will see the continuance of the excellence brought about by Tan Sri Samsudin to the extent of making Putrajaya not only a federal government administrative centre but also world-renowned through the hosting of prestigious and world-class events," Raja Nong Chik said in a statement.
He said he was convinced that Aseh's wide experience in security matters during his tenure in government service, especially the Home Ministry, would enable him to discharge his duties more effectively.
Raja Nong Chik recorded his appreciation and thanks to Samsudin for having made Putrajaya a world-renowned green intelligent city.
