Examining the Majlis Perbandaran Seberang Perai (MPSP)
As with all municipalities, the wellbeing of the residents is partly in the hands of those who run the local authority. In Seberang Perai, this is the Majlis Perbandaran Seberang Perai (MPSP) or Seberang Perai Municipal Council.
With about 740sq km under its jurisdiction, MPSP is one of Malaysia’s largest local authorities – the largest is the Majlis Daerah Ulu Selangor (Hulu Selangor District Council) which covers 1, 741sq km. Seberang Perai used to have three local councils – Province Wellesley North Rural District Council, Province Wellesley Central Rural District Council and Province Wellesley South District Council.
