Amanah president cum Agriculture and Food Security Minister Datuk Seri Mohamad Sabu, as well as other leaders of parties in the Unity Government were also present.

During a press conference earlier, Unity Government spokesperson Fahmi Fadzil said the meeting would take place this evening to discuss the distribution of allocations for the Opposition.

On April 13, Fadillah said the Opposition representatives’ demand for the allocation would be discussed in today’s Unity Government Secretariat’s top leadership meeting.
