It all started with the Pakatan Rakyat’s Buku Harapan, which promises to rebuild the nation and fulfil the people’s hopes.

In the document, the new government, Pakatan Harapan (PH) wrote down 10 promises in 100 days and 60 promises in 5 years.

One of the 10 promises in a hundred days is to:

Stabilise the price of petrol and introduce targeted petrol subsidies


The PH’s manifesto didn’t actually state a petrol price of RM1.50 per litre or even a reduction in petrol price.

So, where the promise of RM1.50 per litre petrol price came from?

People are actually reacting to a video uploaded by Rafizi Ramli 11 months ago, on the 5th of July 2017.

The Facebook live video is entitled “The Mechanism of Fixing Petrol Price at RM1.50 – RM1.80 per litre“.


Thus, the people are now questioning (or mis-questioning?) the new government why the petrol price is not revised to RM1.50 per litre, even though Pakatan Harapan have won over Barisan Nasional on May 10, 2018.

After a quick statement by Berita Harian Online reporting that the petrol price will remain as it is, tonnes of people are reacting to the Facebook post.


Some of the comments attacking the new government led by Pakatan Harapan:

At the same time, there are some positive comments supporting the newly formed government:

There are also some neutral comments, neither supporting the previous nor the new government:
