Anwar Rejects New Mercedes S600 By PMO, Will Use Any Car Provided For Him

Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim has been busy in his new job since last Thursday’s (November 24) swearing-in ceremony. He has hosted several press conferences to reveal his plans for the future.

One of these is to ensure that every ringgit in public funds is wisely used and urge new cabinet members to avoid wastage.

He also took to his social media and shared that he refused to use a Mercedes S600 purchased and obtained by the Prime Minister’s Department (PMO) before he entered the office.


“The step was taken because I did not want any new expenses to be made on me.

Instead, I have decided to use whatever vehicles are available in the office for daily use.

He also shared that this is a message to the leaders of other ministries and departments to remind them that they need to start a new culture under the current situation.
