Promises matter to rakyat


WHILE most Malaysians welcome the large and varied goodies promised in both the Barisan Nasional and Pakatan Harapan election manifestos, there is considerable doubt as to whether these political promises are realistic, feasible and financially viable.

Budget proposals are announced in Parliament and backed by legislation while manifestos are publicised politically without legal backing and can, and indeed, be forgotten once the elections are over.
