Muar MP Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman said the lure of receiving multiple pensions amounting to over a RM100,000 a month and more than a RM1mil in gratuity is why some senior lawmakers are unwilling to retire.

Speaking in the Parliament on Wednesday (Sept 29), he proposed that a special committee is set up to discuss issues surrounding multiple pensions and gratuity received by some long-serving lawmakers.
