KUALA LUMPUR: An attempt by Opposition lawmakers to call for bloc voting to vote down the allocation for the Prime Minister’s Department at the committee stage of Budget 2021 has failed.
This was because 105 voted “aye” for allocations for the Prime Minister’s Department to be approved compared to 95 who voted “nay”.

He said this was done so MPs could study and scrutinise the overall announcement by the Finance Minister.
