Putrajaya Has No Plans To Recognise Uec
PARLIAMENT | Putrajaya has no plans to recognise the unified examination certificate (UEC), the Dewan Rakyat was told today.
Education Minister Fadhlina Sidek (above) said this in a curt written reply to Sabri Azit (PN-Jerai).
"As of now, the Education Ministry has no plans to recognise the UEC which is implemented in Chinese private middle schools.
"This position is based on the national education policy and provisions under the Education Act 1996," said Fadhlina.
Pakatan Harapan, of which Fadhlina's party is a coalition member of, had in its GE15 manifesto promised to recognise the UEC for public university enrolment on condition that the applicant possesses at least a credit in Bahasa Melayu.
The UEC is an A-level or STPM equivalent examination used by Chinese independent schools. While it is recognised by major institutions worldwide, it is not recognised by any branch of the Malaysian civil service except in Sarawak.
Petronas’ financial reports
Meanwhile, Finance Minister Anwar Ibrahim was non-committal in his reply to Hassan Abdul Karim (Harapan-Pasir Gudang) on whether GLCs and government-linked investment companies (GLIC) such as Petronas will report their finances to Parliament annually.
Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim"GLICs and GLCs are governed by the Companies Act 2016 which requires audited financial reports be submitted to the Companies Commission every year.
"Prior to the submission, financial reports have to be audited and approved by the board of directors at the annual general meeting," the prime minister said.
Lawmakers have often asked Putrajaya to debate Petronas' financial reports to be debated in Parliament and these requests are routinely turned down.
Petronas' financial records are readily accessible on the company's website. - Mkini
