Perak state assembly members (ADUN) from the Perikatan Nasional (PN) coalition will be contributing 50 percent of their three-month salaries to be channeled into the COVID-19 Disaster Trust Fund.

This was announced by the chairman of the state-level PN coalition cum ADUN for Chenderiang constituency, Dato’ Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu in a statement dated today (June 3).

“This is a form of our concern towards issues faced by countless Perakeans due to the pandemic.

“As such, nine of us, myself included as a member of the Malaysian United Indegenous Party (BERSATU), are cutting our three-month salaries by half starting this month until August and the remaining amount will be channeled into the trust fund,” he said.

The state-level PN coalition comprise members from BERSATU and the Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS), which are:

  1. Razman Zakaria (ADUN Semanggol) (PAS)
  2. Dato’ Zainol Fadzi Paharudin (ADUN Sungai Manik) (BERSATU)
  3. Mohd Akmal Kamarudin (ADUN Selama) (PAS)
  4. Dato’ Nolee Ashilin Mohamed Radzi (ADUN Tualang Sekah) (BERSATU)
  5. Dato’ Abdul Yunus Jamahari (ADUN Kuala Kurau) (BERSATU)
  6. Khalil Yahaya (ADUN Kubu Gajah) (PAS)
  7. Paul Yong Choo Kiong (ADUN Tronoh) (BERSATU)
  8. Sivasubramaniam Athinarayanan (ADUN Buntong) (BERSATU)

“Hopefully, the fight against COVID-19 ends as soon as possible,” Ahmad Faizal expressed.

Previously, the Menteri Besar of Perak, Dato’ Saarani Mohamad announced that his three-month salary from June to August this year, along with those of the executive councillors’ line-up, will be contributed to the trust fund.
