Consider targeted EPF withdrawal – Asyraf

YOUTH chief Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki has spoken to Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim on calls for a targeted Employees Provident Fund (EPF) withdrawal scheme.

In a Facebook post, Asyraf said this was conveyed to Anwar, who is also the Pakatan Harapan chairman, during the unity government secretariat’s meeting at Menara Dato’ Onn on Tuesday night.

“I managed to raise several issues that touched on the people’s concerns, including having to bear greater financial burdens ahead of the new school term,” he said.

While acknowledging that many had taken jibes at Umno Youth for pushing for multiple EPF withdrawals in the past, he said there was no need for a blanket withdrawal scheme this time around.
