KUALA LUMPUR - Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has once again reiterated that he would not take his salary as the country's 10th premier, as a show of solidarity with the people who are struggling with the rising cost of living.

He said the first step to restore the confidence of the people "so that they don't see ministers and leaders regardless of political party and religion who think about salaries, contracts and shares.

“So I choose to not take my prime minister salary,” he said at his first press conference after being sworn-in as the country's premier.

During the campaigning period, Anwar had said he was taking the initiative as he was ashamed that the people were struggling with rising prices while their salary remained the same.
