KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) -- When Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi made a statement saying it was time for the government to intervene in keeping the house prices in check, many Malaysians probably felt a huge sense of relief.
His words referred to the price of houses, which has skyrocketed in the past few years requiring much needed action to ensure the prices are not solely dictated by the market forces.
Ahmad Zahid said this during a speech at the Civil Servants Housing Convention jointly organised by the Congress of Unions of Employees in the Public and Civil Services (Cuepacs) and the Malaysian National Co-operative Movement (Angkasa) recently.
