The 2019 federal budget will be released on Friday, November 2. Budget cuts and new taxes to address debts contracted by the previous government are anticipated. Perceived austerity measures are liable to trigger protests outside the Parliament in the capital Kuala Lumpur. Previous budget releases were also met with protest activity. A heightened security presence can be anticipated around the Parliament.
Individuals in Malaysia, notably in Kuala Lumpur, are advised to avoid public rallies as a precaution.
