KUALA LUMPUR:The Malaysia Madani framework is crafted based on thematic analysis of election promises made by all components under the unity government, says Datuk Armizan Mohd Ali.
In a parliamentary written reply, the Minister in the Prime Minister's Department (Sabah, Sarawak Affairs and Special Functions) said the framework was built based on a thematic analysis of the manifesto of all components of the unity government during the cabinet minister's retreat on Jan 15.
"The Malaysia Madani framework is expected to be launched by the prime minister soon," he said in reply to a question from Datuk Mohd Radzi Jidin (PN - Putrajaya) who asked whether Pakatan Harapan and Barisan Nasional's election promises would be fulfilled since they were now in the government together.
Armiza revealed that the four main strategic cores of Malaysia Madani were, reforms in aspects of the economy and people's infrastructure; social and security; institutional, democracy and law reforms; as well as public services
Mohd Radzi also sought the financial implications for the implementation of the manifestos.
Armizan however did not explicitly mention the cost to implement the manifestos but said that the Budget 2023 had allocated a total of RM388.1 bil as the first step to explore the development of the Malaysia Madani framework, that focuses on 12 main initiatives
"The administration of the unity government is committed to the responsibility of controlling the fiscal position of the country and addressing the national debt.
"At the same time, it also continues to support inclusive and sustainable economic growth," added Armizan.
