Budget vote: Finance Minister to begin his wind-up speech soon

KUALA LUMPUR: A total of 26 ministries have completed their winding-up speeches, leading to the last and much-awaited Finance Ministry wrap-up on Budget 2021 at the policy stage before voting can begin.

The Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister was the second last to answer queries raised by MPs during the debates.

Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Tengku Zafrul Abdul Aziz will then be taking questions and interjections from eager lawmakers who have raised many opinions and points on Budget 2021.

After that, there will be a vote for MPs to mark the end of the second reading, or policy stage of the Supply Bill, after which they will move on to the committee stage.

There could be a simple voice vote or MPs can request bloc voting.

The House bell will be rung for two minutes, then a 10-minute grace period will be given before the bell is rung for another two minutes for the bloc voting process to begin.
