Malaysian Cabinet members agree to 10 percent salary cut

The Cabinet has agreed to cut the salaries of all ministers by 10%, in a move to cut government spending.

Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad announced this at a press conference after chairing the first weekly Cabinet meeting at Perdana Putra on Wednesday.”The cut is on the minister’s basic salary. This is to help the country’s finances.”This has been a practice of mine. I also did the same thing when I became prime minister in 1981,” said Dr Mahathir. RTS – EP
