SEPTEMBER 19, 2019


PKR President Anwar Ibrahim announced that he would take over the post of prime minister in May next year. Gerakan President Datuk Dr Dominic Lau Hoe Chai urged Prime Minister Tun Mahathir to clearly explain his timetable.

He pointed out that there are only eight months left to May next year. Tun Mahathir must clearly stated the time of passing baton, like he did in 2002, announcing the date of passing baton was 31 October 2003. This is to avoid turmoil.

He said in a statement today that once Tun Mahathir clearly stated the date of the handover to Anwar, PH government could concentrate on developing the country and caring for people's lives.

He revealed that according to the feedback received by the Gerakan from the private sector, the current economy is getting worse and worse, and the people are under pressure from rising prices.

He said that the PH government said in the Budget 2019 that it would introduce a fuel subsidy card for low-income groups, but it still not be rolled out until now. The budget 2020 is going to be submitted next month.

He pointed out that the rising cost of people's living expenses is an urgent problem that the government must solve. Therefore, he urged the government to introduce a policy of benefiting the people in the budget proposed on 11 October.
