KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 9 — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is considering expanding the Madani government’s one-year anniversary programmes in the states.

Anwar said he will discuss it with his Cabinet next week.

“My schedule to visit was supposed to be tomorrow but I’ve decided to come by today, and I see that the response is very encouraging.

“The cooperation between government departments, government-linked companies is very satisfactory,” Anwar told reporters after visiting the various booths and exhibitions at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium today.

A total of 102 government agencies have set up exhibitions at the stadium grounds that aim to provide information about the various programmes to commemorate the first-year anniversary of the Anwar administration.

“I see that interest among the rakyat is growing and if this continues, we may take this to the Cabinet meeting next week, if we could hold a similar exhibition like this to offer public explanation to the rakyat in each state in the country,” Anwar said.

The Madani government one-year anniversary programme kicked off yesterday and will continue until tomorrow.

Despite it being a regular working day yesterday, thousands of visitors thronged the stadium grounds and didn’t even seem to mind the long queues at the booths to check out what the one-year-old Anwar government has been doing in the past year and what they can expect in 2024.

Many visitors also took the opportunity for an up-close-and-personal glimpse of the prime minister, and some approached Anwar for a group photo.
