In order to ensure that Budget 2023 is carried out, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob has asked the populace to vote for Barisan Nasional (BN) in the next General Election 15 (GE15). He added that all of the funding allotted for carrying out the various projects and providing help in the Budget for the following year is available and ready to be used.
Ismail reportedly emphasised that BN needed to win GE15 in order for all of the plans and assistance in Budget 2023 to be realised.
According to the Prime Minister:
“The rakyat have to ensure that BN wins (GE15). The money is already there and ready to be utilised (for Budget 2023 initiatives).”
Speaking yesterday at Felda Palong, close to Jempol, during the Negeri Sembilan Jelajah Aspirasi Keluarga Malaysia (AKM) Village Feast, Ismail also cautioned the populace not to fall for the promises made in the opposition’s GE15 manifesto. The opposition, the prime minister continued, was unable to keep its pledges while in power. He argued:
“From our experience with the opposition (when they ruled for 22 months after GE14), they could not fulfil their promises like reducing petrol prices and abolishing tolls. When they could not do so, they said a manifesto is not like the Quran which cannot be changed. So, I would like to remind you all not to forget the promises that PH (Pakatan Harapan) failed to fulfil,”
What do you guys make of the Prime Minister’s recent statement?
