Malaysia’s govt tussles with Kelantan over oil royalty payments, offshore boundary


Dateline 2019-11-19, NST:

Malaysia’s Pakatan Harapan (PH) government and Kelantan state are in a tussle over some RM1 billion (S$330 million) a year demanded by the east coast state, in a tug of war over “oil royalties” that may well decide the political future of the east coast state.

Parti Islam SeMalaysia (PAS), a federal opposition party that has controlled Kelantan for 29 years wants the funds from Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad’s government, as promised in PH’s election manifesto.
