No staff or allowance for PM’s wife

The Prime Minister’s wife does not have regular staff or contract employees working for her.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak told Liew Chin Tong (DAP-Bukit Bendera) in a written reply that officers from the Prime Minister’s Office would occasionally assist her in carrying out her official duties.

He said the Government also did not provide an allowance or fixed annual allowance for overseas trips for the wife of the Prime Minister.

“However, under the Privileges and Special Allowances of Members of Parliament (Remuneration ) Act, it is stated that she is entitled to claim for expenses such as fees, meals, accommodation, lifestyle allowance and clothing while accompanying the Prime Minister during his official visits overseas and locally,” he said.
