Netizens were asked if they agreed that the task force was capable of coordinating efforts to resolve issues regarding inflation efficiently and effectively.

This poll was published at 12.16pm today. As of 3.15pm, the poll had garnered 1,503 responses, of which 93.1 percent said they disagreed with that statement.

Only 2.7 percent of respondents agreed.

This new task force was established yesterday and announced by Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob and will be headed by Communications and Multimedia Minister Annuar Musa.

Other task force members are Finance Minister Zafrul Abdul Aziz, Agriculture and Food Industries Minister Ronald Kiandee, Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Alexander Nanta Linggi, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Economy) Mustapa Mohamed and chief secretary to the government Mohd Zuki Ali.

Meetings will be held twice a week on Monday and Thursdays. Ismail Sabri promised that press conferences would be held after the meetings to announce new measures to address problems arising from inflation. – Malaysiakini
