He announced this after discussion between Pakatan’s presidential council and the mentris besar and chief ministers of the three states.Wan Abdul Latiff said the Appeals Board then set aside the EIA report approval as it was contradictory to Section 34A(4) under the Act with regard to development zoning that had not been approved by the relevant Penang authorities at that time.Bail for Mohd Nasri was set at RM500,000 with one surety; Abdul Wahab RM110,000 (one surety); Nur Hafeezah RM25,000 (one surety) and Resool Bivi RM10,000 (one surety).When asked to comment on Umno president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s accusation that PH was looking to delay the polls due to a its poor showing in the past by-elections, Chow said the decision will only be known if GE15 is held.Meanwhile, on the tabling of Budget 2023 tomorrow, Chow said the state had already submitted applications for 126 projects valued at RM17.Among the agencies involved are PLANMalaysia, the Fisheries, Health, Drainage and Irrigation Department, Mineral and Geoscience, Marine, Public Works, and Town and Country Planning departments, Penang Port Commission, individuals with certain expertise and non-governmental organisations.72 billion.Raveentharan."Of the 126 projects, we only require RM2.It consists of several infrastructural projects worth about RM46 billion under the Penang Transport Master Plan."But let's not get involved in the spread of fake news which can cause uneasiness among the public," he added.

9 billion to start the projects in 2023 as some projects will take two to three years to implement,” he said.He said the state had also submitted an additional 23 projects valued at RM14.03 billion to the Finance Ministry upon request from the finance minister."We always welcome federal projects to be implemented in Penang,” he said.Among the projects Penang had requested funding for include the Pulau Aman development plan, infrastructure plan for Penang South Reclamation, LRT, green connector and the north seafront plan and a RM36 million facelift for Dewan Sri Pinang.
