The budget for the agriculture and food industries ministry was passed by voice vote in the Dewan Rakyat today, making it the sixth allocation to be passed following the debate at the committee level.

The ministry had been allocated RM1.7 billion in the 2021 budget tabled on Nov 6.

Allocations for five portfolios were previously passed: the plantation industries and commodities ministry, the foreign ministry, the national unity ministry, the finance ministry and the Prime Minister’s Department.

The budgets for the Prime Minister’s Department and the finance and plantation ministries were passed by bloc vote while the two others were passed by voice vote.

The budget for 2021 – RM322.5 billion, the country’s largest ever – was passed at the policy stage on Nov 26 in what was seen as a crucial test of support for Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin.

It was passed by voice vote after the opposition failed to garner enough support to force a bloc vote.
