Cost of Living
Dato Dr Paul Selva Raj, Secretary General, Federation of Malaysian Consumer Associations
Cost of living will feature front and centre in the lead up to polling day on May 9th. Before the 13th parliament was dissolved on April 7th, a National Cost of Living Action Council was formed to address this issue head on. Dato Dr Paul Selva Raj, Secretary-General of the Federation of Malaysian Consumers Associations, commended the formation of this task force, writing in a public letter in a national daily that “this is the way forward.” We ask him why, whether government can directly influence cost of living, and the responsibility of consumers to live within their means.
