PETALING JAYA: The country’s finances are not as pretty as they have been made out to be, Perikatan Nasional chairman Muhyiddin Yassin said today, vowing to make further exposures on the matter soon.
He gave clues of how far stretched the country’s treasury was after weathering the twin crises of the economy and the pandemic, calling it the “biggest challenge”.
“Yesterday, I asked for a report from the finance minister Tengku Zafrul Aziz. One day I will expose the state of our finances. I was once there (as the premier).
“How much longer can we keep this up? Is our annual revenue enough to pay salaries, development? Is there enough to pay pensions, which is huge,” he said today at the launch of the Johor Perikatan Nasional in Kota Tinggi.
“I am going to stop here. Because I know the country’s finances are not as pretty as described, that is the biggest challenge at the national level,” he said.
Looking ahead to the Johor state elections on March 12, Muhyiddin said that Johoreans must think about the country’s finances and the prospect of Barisan Nasional (BN) hands on the federal purse again.
Muhyiddin said Johor and the country would be worse off if Johoreans felt like voting for BN again for stability. “It is an unusual and extraordinary time we live in, not just for Johor, but the country. We have to repair a spoiled country. I can’t imagine what will happen in the future,” he said.
