MUAR: Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman (pic) became the first GE15 candidate in his Muda party to declare his assets, which also includes the value of his two pet cats.
The Muda founder declared his assets amounting to about RM2.81mil as of Sept 30, 2022, with total liabilities amounting RM909,267, which leaves his net assets at around RM1.91mil.
He also disclosed how the assets were accumulated, his source of income, investments and valuables owned.
Syed Saddiq revealed his invaluable assets – a second-hand bicycle and his cats Toby and Meow Meow.
“When we were serving in the Cabinet, we were asked to declare any gifts which value would be above RM500.
“Since I got my cats in 2018 as gifts from my brother and a friend, I am declaring them as well because the felines are invaluable to me,” he said in a press conference here on Thursday (Nov 10).
The former youth and sports minister, who is defending the Muar parliamentary seat in the 15th General Election, added that he has instructed the other five Muda candidates to declare their assets.
Asked about the people’s reception to Muda, he said the response was positive as the party offers solutions and new ideas to address issues.
