PETALING JAYA: The Special Task Force to Facilitate Business (Pemudah) will not recommend an extension of Datuk Abd Hakim Borhan’s tenure as Datuk Bandar of Kuala Lumpur.

Sources said Abd Hakim, 56, who retires on Dec 14, will not be given any extension when his tenure ends, following a "non-impressive performance" as caretaker of the city, in the eyes of the task force.
