According to MACC website − mydeclaration.sprm.gov.my − Lim made the most with RM86,464.92 monthly income. Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Saifuddin Nasution Ismail took the second spot with RM77,629.68 and Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir came third with RM75,861.57.

Malaysiakini reported that the stated incomes were the lawmakers’ individual monthly earning and not inclusive of their joint family income.

Lim’s wife and son had declared their earnings to the anti-graft body while Dr Mahathir only declared his and his wife’s income. The premier’s son Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir, who’s the Menteri Besar of Kedah, didn’t declare his income to MACC and he wasn’t on the list.

Her income was declared along with her husband Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, the PKR president and newly-elected Port Dickson MP. Their daughter Permatang Pauh MP Nurul Izzah Anwar was not on the list.

After the 10% pay cut Dr Mahathir announced in early of his administration, it’s estimated that his monthly salary would be about RM20,543.99 while Dr Wan Azizah would be about RM16,351.33. Other ministers’ paycheck would be around RM13,416.48 a month.
