Cabinet Ministers Agree To Take Salary Cut Of 20%; Anwar

According to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, the Cabinet has agreed to take a 20% pay cut every month.

He stated that the entire Cabinet has decided to do so since the rakyat is struggling with rising living costs.

During a news conference, he stated, “This will be sustained until the economy improves.”

He had just finished his first meeting with his Cabinet.

When asked if the pay cut would be carried out throughout the government’s five-year tenure, he simply said that it could range from three to five years, depending on the situation.

He also clarified that he would not be taking any salary as Finance Minister as there was only one salary given to a minister.

Anwar was responding to certain quarters who claimed that he would still draw a salary as Finance Minister despite declining pay for the prime minister’s post.

“This is not true, there is only one salary,” he said.

After Anwar was appointed as Malaysia’s 10th Prime Minister, he announced that he would not be taking any salary.
