PUTRAJAYA: The Cabinet has yet to make a final decision on the removal of the cap on the price of RON95 petrol, Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail said.

Referring to media reports on his statement on the removal of the price cap for the fuel, he said in a statement that RON95 petrol is now capped at RM2.08 per litre as a government measure to protect the people from being exposed to a high and volatile petrol price.

He also said that stabilising the retail price of fuel and implementing a targeted subsidy are commitments stated in the Pakatan Harapan (PH) manifesto for the 14th general election and not setting the retail price of RON95 petrol at RM1.50 as viralled in the social media.

Saifuddin Nasution said measures to stabilise the retail price of the fuel have been implemented and the government is committed to implementing the targeted subsidy so that only the eligible and needy group of people receive the benefit.

 “The government is always open to proposals from the people on the implementation of this targeted subsidy so that the intention and objective behind this policy are achieved,” he said. – Bernama
