The government will be making an important announcement on toll collection very soon, Bersatu president Muhyiddin Yassin said last night.
“We just discussed this in cabinet… maybe in a day or two a statement on tolls will be announced by the minister concerned,” he said at a ceramah in conjunction with the Semenyih by-election last night.
However, Muhyiddin declined to reveal any further details on the announcement.
He said this when touching on Pakatan Harapan’s manifesto for the 14th general election, which pledged to find ways to reduce highway toll rates and if possible, abolish them altogether.
Harapan emerged victorious in GE14, ending over 60 years of BN rule.
Among the more than 150 who attended the ceramah were Selangor Menteri Besar Amirudin Shari, Perak Menteri Besar Ahmad Faizal Azumu and Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Saifuddin Nasution Ismail.
