SHAH ALAM – The Pakatan Harapan (PH) coalition has launched their national manifesto in the mission to attract voters during the 14th General Election (GE14).
Among the focal point is their effort in reducing the cost of living 100 days after conquering Putrajaya, by launching various peduli rakyat’s initiatives.
“If we lose, these promises cannot be materialised. Although we are confident that we will win, today, we have not win yet and we need to work towards winning and push everything aside. We need to push aside our personal differences, we can win,” said the Chairman of PH, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad in PH’s manifesto launch last night.
He also promised to launch targeted petrol subsidies and to stabilise fuel price.
According to him, PH will also introduce targeted petrol subsidies, abolish all Felda settlers’ debts including those forced on the settlers.
“Meanwhile, PH also introduced EPF scheme for the housewives, to equalise and increase basic wages nationawide,” said Mahathir.
One of the attractive plan is the delay for the National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN) repayment for all borrowers with less than RM4,000 monthly income and to remove the blacklisting policy.
On the previous 13th General Election, the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) coalition claimed that they will abolish loan repayments for all students if they manage to conquer Putrajaya.
Besides that, the PH will also set up a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) for 1MDB, Felda, Mara and Tabung Haji besides reshuffle its management team.
They will also set up a special cabinet taskforce to implement the Malaysia Agreement 1963.
Through the manifesto, the PH highlighted five main cores, 60 promises in five years and five special pledges through their 201 pages book entitled, Membina Negara Memenuhi Harapan (Buliding Nation, Fulfilling Hopes). -MalaysiaGazette.
