It is speculated that the meeting will include deliberations on Budget 2023, amongst other matters.

The previous Barisan Nasional-led (BN) federal government tabled a budget amounting to RM372 billion on Oct 7 but the budget was never approved following the dissolution of Parliament three days later.

The Pakatan Harapan-led (PH) unity government is expected to table a new version of Budget 2023 soon. — DayakDaily
