Kelantan gives bonus

Kelantan will still pay a month’s bonus to state government employees similar to the one received by public sector employees at the federal level although the state government’s debts have exceeded the value of its assets.

Menteri Besar Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat admitted that the financial resources of the Pas-led state government was weak but it had taken thrifty measures.

The Pas spiritual leader also defended his administration saying that the state government had never squandered because it was a sin.

He told reporters this while commenting on the Auditor-General Report 2007.

According to Auditor-General Tan Sri Ambrin Buang, the 2007 Kelantan State Audit report showed the state’s financial position was not strong because the amount of debts incurred exceeded the value of assets.
When tabling Budget 2009 last Friday, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi announced the payment of a bonus of a month’s salary or minimum RM1,000 to the civil servants.

“Every year we pay a bonus. It’s just that we are discussing how it will be done... Insya Allah there is,” said Nik Aziz. — BERNAMA
