Solve problems affecting the people, PM Anwar tells his Cabinet

PUTRAJAYA: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has chaired his first Cabinet meeting and directed his ministers to resolve issues affecting the people as soon as possible.

The Prime Minister who described the meeting as productive and harmonious said that focus must also be given to cost of living issues.

He also indicated that the appointment of deputy ministers would be made soon.

"Hopefully candidates for deputy ministers will be finalised soon," he said in a Facebook post on Wednesday (Dec 7).

On Dec 2, Anwar unveiled his 28-member Cabinet but did not name any deputy ministers.

On Monday (Dec 5), he chaired a special meeting with his ministers, where they agreed to a 20% pay cut until Malaysia reached economic recovery.

The Prime Minister said this was part of their gesture in acknowledging the tough times faced by many people currently.

Anwar was sworn in as Prime Minister on Nov 24.
