Rafizi: Najib's petrol income spending highest of all PMs
PARLIAMENT Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak has spent more of the country's petroleum income since taking office in 2009, than any of his predecessors including Dr Mahathir Mohamad, claimed a PKR lawmaker.
Rafizi Ramli (PKR-Pandan) said Najib was the "champion of champions" and had spent RM376 billion of the country's petroleum income between 2009 and 2016, or an average of RM54 billion per year.
"Mahathir, who was PM for 22 years, spent RM163 billion, or RM8 billion a year," Rafizi told the House today.
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.
