KAJANG, November 24 – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim set the session of the 15th Dewan Rakyat to start on December 19. According to, in addition to the government’s proposal, his side will present a motion of confidence in Parliament to dismiss all allegations against the legitimacy of his leadership. The first motion is a vote of confidence motion in parliament and for me there is no question of legitimacy, he said during his first press conference as Prime Minister here on Thursday.

Apart from Pakatan Harapan (PH), he also got the support of MPs from Barisan Nasional (BN), Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS), Warisan, Malaysian United Democratic Alliance (MUDA), Parti Bangsa Malaysia (PBM), 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 first, before the 2023 Budget is tabled again.

“Budget, of course we have to clear the emolument (for civil servants) first on the 19th, 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 the then finance minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Abdul 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 (GE15).
