What exactly did the Supply (Reallocation of Appropriated Expenditure) Act 2020 do?
The passing of the bill was quoted to have been evidence of ‘support for the government led by Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’. The act legislated a restructuring of government by reallocating funds from ministries. One even resulted in the abolishment of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, which was established during the previous government. Where the funds shift is an important indicator of the current government’s priority.
