Economist: Cut ministers’ pay so they feel rakyat’s pain

KUALA LUMPUR: Salaries of government ministers should be reduced so that they “share the pain of budget cuts” experienced by the public  former Khazanah Research Institute director Muhammed Abdul Khalid said today.

Speaking at a forum on the 2017 Budget, he noted that a lot of government spending had been cut. “The only thing we haven’t seen, however, is the cut of ministers’ salaries.”

He added that Cabinet ministers should do so as it is symbolic, saying that they should “feel the same pain as the rakyat feels”.
