KUALA LUMPUR: Voting to approve Budget 2022 at the policy level will be the main focus of the Dewan Rakyat sitting on Thursday (Nov 18)

The vote on the Supply Bill 2022 is expected to be carried out after the remaining five ministries wind up the debate on the bill, and they are the Rural Development; Entrepreneur Development and Cooperatives; Federal Territories; Tourism, Arts and Culture; and Finance Ministries.

The fourth day of the winding up of the debate will see the relevant Ministers and Deputy Ministers answering issues raised by 131 government and opposition MPs who debated the Bill at the policy-level during the seven-day debate on the Bill which started on Nov 1.

In the meantime, the issue of insults against Islam, which is still widespread on social media, is also set to be the highlight in today's sitting.

According to the Order Paper, the matter will be raised during the Minister's Question Time by Wan Hassan Mohd Ramli (PAS-Dungun).

He is scheduled to ask the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia regarding strategic steps taken by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission to tackle the issue.

Meanwhile, during the question-and-answer session, Datuk Shabudin Yahaya (Bersatu-Tasek Gelugor) is expected to raise the issue of Bumiputera participation in the logistics and warehousing industry as well as the steps taken by the Transport Ministry to increase their participation. - Bernama
