Kuala Lumpur: The implementation mechanism and date of targeted diesel subsidy will be announced in the near future, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Anwar said the matter will be explained by Finance Minister II Datuk Seri Amir Hamzah Azizan because he has already given an overview of it and only follow-up action is needed now.

“Some people ask why? Not all Prime Ministers do it. I give the big picture and framework, then there will be follow-up action.

“...because I distinguish between policy matters and details,” he said in a press conference after attending the Madani Postnormal Times Exhibition here, today.

On Tuesday, the Cabinet agreed to implement targeted diesel subsidy, thereby saving the government around RM4 billion a year.
