The 15th Parliament session – the first under the government led by Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim – will be held on Dec 19.
Anwar, who was sworn in as the 10th prime minister yesterday, said a motion of confidence would be tabled at the sitting to end the question of his legitimacy as prime minister.
"The first motion, other than the swearing in (of MPs), will be a motion from the government, which is a vote of confidence. So we are not worried about legitimacy," he said at his first press conference as prime minister at the Sungai Long Golf & Country Club, Kajang, yesterday.
Apart from Pakatan Harapan (PH), he has also received the support of MPs from Barisan Nasional (BN), Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS), Warisan, Muda, Parti Bangsa Malaysia, as well as independents.
"The question of stability should not arise," he said.
Anwar said during the session, the government would also table and approve emoluments for civil servants, before the 2023 Budget is tabled again.
"The budget, of course we have to clear the emolument (for civil servants) first on Dec 19, so that our public servants don't need to worry.
"And then give us another month or so, then we will table a new budget or a revised budget," he said.
The 2023 budget was tabled on Oct 7 by then finance minister Tengku Zafrul Aziz with a total allocation of RM372.3 billion. Three days later, on Oct 10, Parliament was dissolved to make way for the 15th general election.
Anwar, 75, took his oath of office as the 10th prime minister before Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah at Istana Negara yesterday.
