Dr Siti Mastura Muhammad (PN-Kepala Batas) will ask the Prime Minister about the losses incurred due to scammers from 2020 to 2023 and the government's actions to combat such crimes comprehensively.

The question on the naturalisation policy will be posed by Jimmy Puah Wee Tse (PH-Tebrau) to the Minister of Youth and Sports.
