“If (the Budget is) rejected, from an economic perspective, we cannot pay the government’s commitment, including payments of monetary aid to the rakyat,” he said in a statement recorded by BERNAMA on 14 November.

Nonetheless, the minister said he was optimistic that the budget, which involved management and development expenditure focused on helping economic recovery would be approved.

“For me, if this budget can help our country, then there is no reason for this budget not to be approved and rejected (Dewan Rakyat),” said Tengku Zafrul.

On 6 November, the Finance Minister led the much-anticipated announcement of Budget 2021 which tabled RM322.5 billion, the largest allocation in the country’s history.

Previously, Dewan Rakyat Speaker, Datuk Seri Azalina Othman called out the Finance Minister’s absence during Dewan Rakyat sessions despite his crucial attendance as these sessions involved the discussion of policies concerning Budget 2021.

What are your thoughts on the Budget? Should it be approved?
