Attention to all housewives: Malaysia’s Deputy Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, officially clocked in for her first day of work last week (May 24) as the Minister of Women, Family and Community Development.

At a press conference after officially reporting for duty, Datuk Seri Wan Azizah mentioned that one of her most pressing tasks would be to make an Employment Provident Fund (EPF) for housewives.

Due consideration must be given to this proposal under Pakatan Harapan’s 100-day manifesto. She noted that under this EPF scheme, housewives will receive a 2% monthly contribution by their husband, on top of getting RM50 from the government.
