What it should have been
THE first paragraph of a front page report of The Borneo Post on Nov 10 entitled “RM4.16 bln surplus Budget” should read:
The Warisan-led Sabah Government tabled its maiden State Budget yesterday, proposing to spend RM4.16 billion for the year 2019 against an estimated revenue of RM4.27 billion.
This would mean a surplus budget involving a sum of RM105.32 million, which is important to maintain the State’s stability.
The surplus involves an increase of RM40.43 million or equivalent to 62.31 percent compared to the year 2018. It is the highest surplus in the last five years.
