Tan Sri Idris Jala said that both Pakatan Rakyat and Barisan National politicians should stop politicizing the Government Service Tax (GST) which is proposed.

According to him, other countries around the world have already embraced and benefited from GST, and that the implementation of GST is for the good of the country.

He added that the GST will make Malaysia more competitive.

The GST was proposed in 2011 to replace sales and service tax.

However, it’s introduction has been halted due to criticism from numerous quarters.
