Low cost carriers and poverty among focus of Dewan Rakyat today

KUALA LUMPUR: The government’s move to encourage low cost carriers either locally or internationally so that more Malaysians can enjoy cheaper air fares, is expected to steal the show at the Dewan Rakyat today.

According to the Dewan Rakyat order papers posted on the Parliament website, Wong Hon Wai (PH-Bukit Bendera) is scheduled to raise the first question during oral question-and-answer session to be answered by the Transport Ministry.

Also expected to gain attention is the question from Datuk Ibrahim Man (PAS-Kubang Kerian) who seeks clarification from the Economic Affairs Ministry on the current state of poverty in Malaysia.

Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong (BN-Ayer Hitam), who wants to know the breakdown of the total assets of the country that had been sold, will also pose a question to the same ministry.

The session, which is expected to conclude around 12 noon, will then continue with the debate on the Supply Bill 2020 regarding Budget 2020 which comes to the third day after opening Monday.

The current meeting of the Dewan Rakyat is scheduled to take place until Dec 5.
