Prior to his appointment as Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has pledged to change the country by getting rid of a number of practices especially things involving a wastage of public funds.

Following his appointment, it appears that there’s no stopping Anwar from changing more things as he has announced a number of measures to curb corruption and to further reduce the amount of spending by his administration.

Similarly, the Prime Minister recently announced that he is not interested in leaving behind any tall buildings in Malaysia as a legacy.

In his speech during a Budget 2023 dialogue at the Finance Ministry today (January 17), Anwar said that his focus is on creating strong and sustainable policies and to ensure the government is prudent with its spending to help Malaysians and small businesses do better in a challenging economic environment.

“I feel there are enough landmarks in Kuala Lumpur like the Twin Towers, KLX and Telekom Tower. Under the Anwar administration, I have no wish to add to these landmarks and I am not planning to compete with them.”

“My only focus is on ensuring our policies are sound, the people’s needs are taken care of and we must focus on natural disasters, which are a by-product of global climate change,” he explained.

“By doing these things and more, we can bring back investors’ confidence in Malaysia,” he added.

The dialogue was to discuss the government’s Budget that was tabled by the Ismail Sabri administration last October but not debated due to the dissolution of Parliament to make way for GE15.

Anwar, who is also finance minister, said that he also plans to introduce reforms and get rid of systemic corruption and cronyism in government agencies.

“As an example, in the two months since I took office I have easily saved RM4 billion, money spent by other politicians through various procurement deals. These deals are not good for the country and are corrupt.”

“This nonsense must stop,” he added.
