Last Friday, Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz unveiled Budget 2023 at RM372.3 billion — the country’s second-largest ever budget. However, in a twist in the tale, yesterday, Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob of UMNO dissolved Parliament. The 15th General Election will be called within 60 days and the next government will either have to retable the same budget or a new one.
So, with all of that in mind, on this episode, we take a look at Budget 2023 and analyse if it addresses the needs of the masses, particularly the B40. We also discuss some of the politicking that have been going on around the budget.
