The price of RON95 petrol is likely to stay at RM2.30 a litre until June next year, said Deputy Finance Minister, Datuk Ahmad Maslan.

He said the petrol subsidy rationalisation exercise was unlikely until the Ministry of Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism implemented the targeted fuel subsidy mechanism in June 2015.

“The system is still under study. Until now, what I know of is that the system which is to be implemented will use the MyKad,” he told reporters after officiating the National Tax Seminar here yesterday.

HARI ini, saya difahamkan, Jabatan Perdana Menteri menganjurkan dialog Siri ke 4/2014 di Putrajaya yang disertai kakitangan awam.

Pihak berkuasa perlu memastikan program 'I Want To Touch A Dog' yang berlangsung di Central Park, One Utama dekat Petaling Jaya, Ahad lepas, tidak berulang kerana ia secara terang-terangan menghina agama Islam.

Datuk Lee Chong Wei has been implicated as the "top athlete" who failed a drug test conducted after a major tournament recently.

It was reported on Tuesday that an athlete had failed a drug test, but the name would be withheld pending the results of a second "B" sample.

The athlete was among those randomly picked up for a doping test.

A decision by Malaysia's bourse to bar a key shareholder in CIMB Group Holdings Bhd and two other lenders from voting on their planned merger has given minority investors more clout and thrown doubt on the deal's prospects.

Seeking to create Malaysia's biggest bank with a market value of more than $20 billion, the three have proposed a complex deal structure widely seen as aimed at blocking potential objections from Abu Dhabi-based Aabar Investments - the second-largest shareholder in one of the lenders, RHB Capital Bhd.

The deal's success would have been all but assured if state pension fund Employees Provident Fund (EPF), which bankers have said is in favour of the merger, had been granted a waiver to rules that prevent it from voting because it has substantial stakes in all three banks.
