This comes as a result of two PKR assembly members quitting the party yesterday, pledging their support to Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin. BFM discusses the political implications of this development with Bridget Welsh, honorary research associate with the University of Nottingham’s Asia Research Institute.

Another example of POLITICIANS’ OBJECTIVE IS PERSONAL INTEREST and ‘GREED’ FOR POWER & OPPORTUNITIES POWER BRINGS FOR SELF ENRICHMENT AND HAVE LUXURIOUS LIFESTYLES AT THE EXPENSE OF TAXPAYERS?

A former Y&S minister received
# RM55K pm as a minister & Muar MP (excl additional incentives)
# RM70K for annual vacations
# RM180 for daily food & drinks
# RM10K to move house

A minister also entitled to receive one-off payments:
# RM42K for dining sets
# RM150K after being dismissed as a minister

CHANGE GOVT – MILLIONS WASTED!!

ELECTED POLITICIANS CHANGING PARTIES HAS RESULTED IN CHANGE OF GOVERNMENTS.

The recent continued appointments of politicians to Government Agencies & GLCs may provide evidence for the above views.
