Today’s Dewan Rakyat sitting is expected to focus on issues regarding the memorandum of understanding (MoU) between Malaysia and Indonesia on the recruitment of workers from the republic as well as the mechanisms the government will adopt to finance the total amount of subsidies.
According to the order paper uploaded on the Parliament portal, matters related to the MoU will be raised during the ministers' question time by Anthony Loke (PH-Seremban) who will ask the human resources minister to explain why the government failed to comply with the MoU, forcing Indonesia to issue a temporary freeze order on its workers entering Malaysia.
There will also be a question from Wong Hon Wai (PH-Bukit Bendera) to the finance minister on how the government is going to finance the total amount of subsidies which is expected to reach RM80 billion this year, and what subsidy reforms are being planned.
During the question and answer session, Ahmad Maslan (BN-Pontian) will ask the transport minister about the status of the East Coast Rail Link project, high-speed rail, Pan Borneo Highway, mass rapid transit, and the new expressways being constructed to reduce congestion, especially during the long holidays and festive seasons.
On the issue of commercial crime, Zakaria Mohd Edris (Bersatu-Libaran) will ask the home minister to state the government's approach to combating crime involving online fraud.
