Abdul Khalid: Establish a Commission to Increase Government’s Ability


KUALA LUMPUR, 25 Oct: The Federal Government should set up an independent commission to conduct research so that administrative costs and bureaucracy in the government can be reduced.

Chief Minister, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim said that it is necessary because every year, there is an increase in government spending and at the same time, it is shown that there is no increase in revenue.

“This budget shows that the BN government’s budget methods and strategies are still following the old ways.

“That is why we need to study not only how revenue can be improved, but the cost and expenses which can be stopped from increasing,” said Abdul Khalid, who is also the Member of Parliament for Bandar Tun Razak, in Parliament today.

Abdul Khalid said he opposed the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) until the income of the people is increased and there is a fair distribution of wealth.

“So if the cost is already five percent, the government should only increase by one percent, that is if we are to implement it, we need a rate to increase income, and not the GST,” said Abdul Khalid.
