PUTRAJAYA, June 27 – The government has decided not to raise electricity and water tariff rates in the Peninsula. Accordingly, electricity and water tariff rates remain as they are now. With this decision, the Government remains committed to covering the subsidy of RM5.8 billion, despite the sharp increase in fuel and other generation costs.
At the same time, the Government has also decided that the price of chicken in the market will not be floated. The new ceiling price will be announced in the near future by the Minister of Agriculture and Food Industry. This decision proves the Government’s concern to safeguard the interests of Malaysian families so that they are not burdened by rising prices and the challenge of the cost of living.
