GEORGETOWN – Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Ahmad Maslan said he did not need the opposition platform to give an explanation on the Goods and Services Tax (GST).
Ahmad said there was no necessity for him to accept the invitation as a panel member of the GST forum from the Penang Keadilan Youth because the opposition clearly refuted the advantages of the system.
The Penang Youth was reported to have handed the invitation letter to Ahmad as a panel member of the GST forum on May 2 when he visited the Seberang Jaya Expo site on April 23.
“I don’t want to debate on their stage not because I am scared. I have answered questions on the issue repeatedly in the Dewan Rakyat. I have many other platforms to explain the issue (GST).
“They (the opposition) will spin even the actual facts,” Ahmad told reporters after officiating the 39th Penang Malay Contractors Association, here today. – BERNAMA
