'GST will burden every M'sian by RM1,000 a year'
Every Malaysian will be burdened by an extra RM 1,000 a year should the government impose a seven percent Goods and Services Tax (GST) rate, Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng has said.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
