The Council of Eminent Persons is expected to make an announcement with regards to toll concessions nationwide next week, said member Tan Sri Zeti Akhtar Aziz, as reported by Malay Mail.

The former Bank Negara governor was met after a series of briefings and a meeting today, and she said the council was in the midst of engaging all stakeholders and working hard to find a feasible solution. “The decision will be made very quickly because they (the stakeholders) are supposed to come back to us next week. Work is very, very intense now.

“All of us are very committed to come up with a solution that is in the best interest of all Malaysians who are looking forward to things that are so much better. We hope we can make that happen,” Zeti told reporters.

Besides Zeti, the other members in the “Council of Elders” are former finance minister Tun Daim Zainuddin, former president and CEO of Petronas Tan Sri Hassan Marican, Hong Kong-based tycoon Tan Sri Robert Kuok and economist Professor Jomo Kwame Sundaram. The gradual abolishment of tolls was mentioned in Pakatan Harapan’s GE14 manifesto.
