PETALING JAYA: An early dissolution of Parliament – before Budget 2023 is passed or even tabled – is looking to be a possibility now, say political analysts.

With widespread talk that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob will seek the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s consent to dissolve Parliament today, observers say that it is not impossible that Budget 2023 could be off the table tomorrow.The PAS president said the party will continue discussions and dialogues with all parties (political parties, non-governmental organisation, academicians and community leaders) for the progress of ummah unity.Yesterday, the national mixed doubles shuttler combined with regular partner Goh Soon Huat to help Ampang reach the semi-finals by beating Singapore Badminton Team 13-6.According to the ministry's CovidNow portal, 1,240 of the new Covid-19 infections in the country were local transmissions, while there were 4 imported cases.

“I will not be surprised if the Budget is not tabled this Friday.“If the general election is to be held before the predicted flood season, it must be done before Nov 15."PAS is of the view that in whatever circumstances, the country and people's interest must be paramount and all steps must be taken for reviving the economy which must be supported, especially through Budget 2023 which is to be tabled," he added.“I think the government would rather have elections as soon as possible and not be accused of holding it during the monsoon season,” said Dr Sivamurugan Pandian.Jin Wei had to fight tooth and nail against Megan Lee before prevailing 9-11, 11-3, 9-11, 11-4, 11-2.“If the Budget is not tabled on Friday, it can be retabled after the new government is formed, like what was done in 1999,” said Universiti Sains Malaysia professor in political sociology.In 1999, Parliament was dissolved on Nov 10, 12 days after the Budget was tabled.

As it was not passed, it had to be retabled when the new government was sworn in.“We are really happy to help our team reach the semi-finals.Dr Sivamurugan said Barisan Nasional feels it is in a better position to win the elections now compared to next year, with the threat of global recession and inflation issues looming.Adib Zalkapli, the director of political consultancy firm BowerGroupAsia, feels that Budget 2023 would still be tabled tomorrow, before Parliament is dissolved.“Technically it makes no difference if Parliament is dissolved this week or next week, the Budget would still have not been passed.Puchong boast the likes of world No.“If elections are held in the next month or so and the Budget is yet to be passed, the new government’s first order of business would be to table the Budget in the new Parliament.

” “We saw this in 1999,” said Adib.He also pointed out that the then government tabled a smaller Budget on Dec 20, 1999 for more essential spendings, before a full Budget was tabled later in 2000.“Puchong are a strong team on paper.Sociopolitical analyst Prof Dr Awang Azman Awang Pawi said it was likely that Barisan would use Budget 2023 on Friday to showcase an election manifesto.“I think the dissolution will only happen after Budget is presented,” he said.“Barisan wants the elections now to take advantage of the momentum, as grassroots support appears to be at a high,” said the Universiti Malaya lecturer.Article type: free.

Meanwhile, Nusantara Academy for Strategic Research senior fellow Dr Azmi Hassan feels that the government might just let Budget 2023 be tabled and brought to a vote.“If the Government loses the Budget 2023 vote, the Prime Minister can use that as a reason to seek dissolution.“He could say he needs a fresh mandate as he cannot command the confidence of the Dewan Rakyat, and avoid being blamed for calling an election during the monsoon,” said Azmi.Article type: free.
