This historic session will address several critical agendas, including significant proposed legislation that will bring substantial changes to Perak’s water resource laws.

According to Dato’ Mohammad Zahir Dato’ Abdul Khalid, the Speaker of the Perak State Assembly, the session will follow the traditional format, with a 90-minute oral question session each day over three days.

“In this meeting, the government will introduce only one piece of legislation, namely the Perak Water Resources Bill 2023. This bill will be presented by the Executive Councillor for Infrastructure, Energy, Water, and Public Transport, Dato’ Seri Ir Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin,” explained Dato’ Mohammad Zahir.
