Mediocre Malaysia ministers earn only $4,400 monthly!

Posted by temasektimes on November 3, 2018

Malaysia’s ministers earn only RM$13,400 or about $4,400 monthly only, according to figures released by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC)!

To put it in perspective, this is less than 5% of the salary of a Singapore minister, who can take home more than $1 million dollars annually, inclusive of various bonuses!

Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad takes home a pathetic RM$23,000, or about S$7,600 as compared to Singapore Prime Minister’s salary of S$2 million dollars though he governs a much bigger country with a population of 25 million people.

Emeritus Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong recently proclaimed publicly that those earning less than $500,000 annually are “mediocre” and do not qualify to be a PAP minister.

Judging from his brilliant statement, the whole Malaysian cabinet must be “mediocre” indeed!
