Negeri Sembilan : Formula to lower fuel prices to be revealed in debate with information minister - Anwar

source: text- bernama via nst, pix- agendadaily SEREMBAN, Fri: Parti Keadilan Rakyat advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said he will reveal his formula to reduce fuel prices on Tuesday during his debate with Information Minister Datuk Ahmad Shabery Cheek.
“(It’s) not that the reduction will make prices at par with those in Venezuela but it will be a reduction so that people can get by. We are not making empty promises, boasting or lying to overcome the problem,” he said at a ceramah here last night.
Anwar said the Barisan Nasional government had mismanaged the economy to the point that the people were burdened with the prices of fuel and goods.
“The country has to be saved to benefit all the people. It’s a question of our future, not Anwar’s,” he said. On the debate, Anwar said till now he did not know whether it would take place or not.
“There is a possibility it will not take place but I hope it will,” he said.
The debate organized by news portal Agenda Daily and themed Form The Government Today, Reduce Fuel Prices Tomorrow is scheduled to take place at Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka.
Anwar has been reported to have promised to reduce fuel prices if the opposition forms the government. — BERNAMA
