Cost of living in Anwar’s 100 days as PM

THE rising cost of living and the financial burdens Malaysians face were among issues raised by Pakatan Harapan in the run-up to the last general election. 

And just days after assuming the prime minister’s post, Anwar Ibrahim, who also took the finance portfolio, chaired the 2022 National Action Council on Cost of Living Special Meeting – attended by government departments and agencies – to discuss the cost of living issues affecting the people.
