PUTRAJAYA, May 1 (Bernama) -- Details regarding the salary increase for civil servants will be announced during the tabling of the 2025 Budget in October this year.

Unity Government spokesperson Fahmi Fadzil said that the salary increase of more than 13 per cent announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim today clearly demonstrated the government's commitment to civil servants.

“The Prime Minister's announcement today is very positive. I believe this is what the workers have been fighting for, and we should embrace it,” he told reporters after attending the National Labour Day celebration here today.

Anwar, in his speech at the event, announced that civil servants will enjoy a salary hike of more than 13 per cent starting December this year, among the highest increase in the nation’s history.

He said the increase would involve an allocation of over RM10 billion.

The Communications Minister also said that such an increase can only occur as a result of better management and governance practised by the Unity Government, especially in efforts to combat corruption.
