The National Economic Council (NEC) has today approved an increase in the electricity tariff but details will only be announced on Monday.
The NEC convened today in Putrajaya at a meeting involving several cabinet ministers chaired by Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.

Energy, Green Technology and Water Minister Peter Chin is expected to hold a press conference on Monday to deliver a formal announcement.
In recent weeks, cabinet ministers have been repeatedly telling the public to brace for an electricity tariff rise as the government embarks on a subsidy-slashing exercise.
