The PM spent RM10 million more than his predecessor Pak Lah in his overseas trips in the last five year.

(FMT) – Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak has spent staggering RM44.071 million in the past five years for official duties abroad, revealed Taiping MP Nga Kor Ming today.

Citing a written reply from the Minister of Prime Minister’s Department Shahidan Kassim, Nga  said that the amount equaled to RM8.814 million a year and RM734,516 per month over the period.

The expenditure was incurred in between March 2008 and May 2013 and covered Najib’s entourage too.

“Pak Lah (former PM Abdullah Ahmad Badawi) only spent RM30 million in five years when he was in office. Najib must tell us what he has achieved with such expenditure for his trips abroad,” he told reporters in the Parliament’s lobby today.
