Why Should Ministers Bring Their Spouses On Official Visits? M'sians Ask Them To Be Responsible Of Taxpayers' Money

24-May-2023

Malaysians are raising questions about the practice of ministers bringing their spouses on official visits, and whether it is a justified use of public funds. The issue has sparked a debate among netizens, with differing opinions on the matter.



Many individuals have expressed their own experiences, highlighting how they are required to cover the expenses for their spouses during work trips. This has led some to question why the same principle should not apply to ministers.

In defence of Nik Azmi's wife, some argue that she is a successful MDRT holder and capable of financing her own expenses during an official government trip.

However, it is important to note that according to the regulations, officials who are instructed or directed to attend official events are entitled to claim allowances, facilities, and payments for their accompanying spouses, subject to the discretion of the official.


This raises the question of whether it is justifiable for ministers' spouses to accompany them on official visits, considering that their travel expenses are covered.

The key question remains: Is it worth it for a minister's spouse to join them on an official visit when both their travel expenses are being paid for? 


What are your thoughts on this issue? Should ministers be allowed to bring their wives on official visits, or should the focus be on optimizing the use of public funds for essential purposes? Join the conversation and share your opinions!
