The recommendation by Transparency International Malaysia for the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission to be placed under the purview of Parliament will be among the issues raised at the Dewan Rakyat sitting today.

According to the order paper, the matter will be raised by Mas Ermieyati Samsudin (PN-Masjid Tanah) in a question to the prime minister during the Minister’s Question Time.

Meanwhile, during the questions for oral answer session, Khairil Nizam Khirudin (PN-Jerantut) will ask the prime minister about the government’s strategies and solutions to address the rising cost of performing the haj and umrah.

Also on the list is a question from Wan Saiful Wan Jan (PN-Tasek Gelugor) to the domestic trade and cost of living minister regarding the actions taken to create more competition in industries associated with cartels or monopolies such as cement, chicken, eggs and sugar.

Wong Shu Qi (PH-Kluang) meanwhile is expected to ask the prime minister about the amount spent on flood rescue operations, financial assistance given to victims and other expenses during last year's floods.

After the question-and-answer session, the Dewan Rakyat session will continue with the debate and winding-up of the Supply Bill 2023 at the committee level.
