PAS: Voting for BN will guarantee extra taxes and fee hikes



PAS deputy president Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man today accused the government of delaying the implementation of several taxes and fee hikes until it gets a new mandate, due to concerns over the people’s rising anger.
The PAS second-in-command highlighted a number of examples to support his claim, namely the postponement of three measures: the introduction of the Goods and Services Tax on 60 additional items, the imposition of the tourism tax on local tourists, and an increase in electricity tariffs.
He added that the Auditor-General’s Report 2016 showed that the government's revenue had declined by RM6.7 billion from RM219.1 billion in 2015 to RM212.4 billion in 2016.
“Hence, it is unsurprising that the BN government has introduced such measures. Their mechanisms are the same, that is, to extract money from the rakyat to increase the country’s revenue, while leakages continue to occur,” he said in a statement today.
Tuan Ibrahim claimed that the three measures were proposed because the government was running low on funds, the impact of which was being experienced by the public sector today.
“What is puzzling for the people, especially those in the public sector who are facing budget cuts, is that the BN government is giving out “presents” as the 14th general election approaches.
“Examples include the announcement made by the prime minister to give RM1 billion to Felda settlers, and incentives for former army servicemen and those who have retired,” he said.

He warned that if BN won in the coming general election without winning the popular vote, the rakyat would be giving the coalition carte blanche to implement the proposed measures.
“Hence, to Malaysians who have yet to register as voters, please do so before it is too late,” he continued.
“Vote for PAS and the Gagasan Sejahtera coalition. We promise an administration free from corruption, as demonstrated by the 2016 Auditor-General’s Report, in which the Kelantan menteri besar's office and the Kelantan state secretary obtained a 99 percent rating for its financial management performance based on the 2016 accountability index, defeating other states,” he said.- Mkini
