KUALA LUMPUR, July 19 – The Prime Minister today conceded that the government could not realise its 10 promises in 100 days, as promised.
Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said this was because the government had to prioritise on other important matters.
“Government’s focus is not only on the 10 promises… in 100 days, the government has loads of work to do and this includes moves in ‘cleaning up’ the government which was tainted with corrupt practices and abuse of power during the past administration.
“This includes legal action towards crimes detected in the government, efforts to track and recover money losses, of departments and many more,” he said in the question-and-answer session in the Dewan Rakyat today.
Dr Mahathir was responding to a question posed by Fong Kui Lun (DAP-Bukit Bintang) who had asked him to state which of the 100 days promises made by Pakatan Harapan (PH) had been fulfilled.
Fong also wanted which promises have not been fulfilled as well as the reason for the delay.
The prime minister said that the government has fulfilled two out of the 10 promises within 100 days, acting on another six and has yet to start on the remaining two.
Dr Mahathir also stressed that the government was committed to realise 60 promises and 42 commitments stated in its manifesto. © New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd
