Selangor to postpone tabling of state budget

SHAH ALAM: The tabling of Selangor Budget 2023, which was originally scheduled for Oct 28, will likely be postponed to Nov 25 to make way for the 15th General Election (GE15), says Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari.

This is despite the Selangor government having decided not to dissolve the state assembly and to stay out of GE15.

According to Bernama, Amirudin said the state assembly Speaker would seek the consent of the Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, to table the budget on the new date.

“This decision was made after taking into account that many state officials will be involved in GE15,” he said after closing the Selangor Volunteer Training and Course (SERVE Rescue) here yesterday.

The Pakatan Harapan presidential council announced last week that the Selangor, Penang and Negri Sembilan state assemblies would not be dissolved to make way for the polls.
