Opposition members like Wan Fayshal have been complaining about the cost of living and OPR rates increasing in this country. However, netizens state that the rates overseas have been increasing at a much higher pace. Furthermore, they state that Malaysia’s rates are relatively quite stable.
OPR rates discussion
A netizen showed the difference between the OPR rates in Malaysia and other countries. Malaysia’s current rate is at 3% which is very mild, and in the green zone. However, countries like Brazil and Russia are in the red zone at 13% and 12%. Others state that the opposition members should offer constructive solutions rather than complaining.
Netizens are calling out opposition members stating that during their rule of the country, the rates went up four times. Furthermore, Ringgit was at its weakest under their rule. However, several attributes can be given to this as there was a 2 year on and off lockdown in the country.
