KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia � The government will pay a bonus to the 1.6 million civil servants in conjunction with Hari Raya Aidilfitri soon, said Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
Bonus for civil servants? We will give the bonus, the quantum is still unknown, he said after chairing the meeting of the Supreme Leadership Council of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Melaysia (PPBM) that lasted about three hours at their headquarters at Menara Yayasan Selangor, Petaling Jaya near here today.
Also present were PPBM president who is also the Home Minister, Muhyiddin Yassin, party deputy president who is also Kedah state Menteri Besar (Chief Minister), Mukhriz Mahathir and PPBM Youth chief Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman.
