Ministers no longer receive their allowance as Members of Parliament under Pakatan Harapan government, says Khalid Abdul Samad.
The Federal Territories Minister said when Pakatan took over the government, the pay structure of the MPs was reformed.

Khalid, who is Shah Alam MP, said that on Monday when commenting on calls by netizens for ministers' monthly income to be cut following the decision to abolish the Critical Services Incentive Allowance for new intake across the civil service next year.

The Parti Amanah Negara communication director also said Amanah MPs and assemblymen received only 70% of their monthly salary while the balance would go towards the party's coffers.
