KUALA LUMPUR: The Education Ministry is still waiting for the final report on the recognition of the Unified Examination Certificate (UEC).
Its minister Dr Maszlee Malik said the ministry had communicated with the Unified Examination Certificate task force (PPDUEC), and they were doing their best to finalise the report.
“It was an engagement with many stakeholders, and they are working with very limited manpower, but they are doing their best. So I am still waiting for them,” he told reporters at the Parliament lobby on Thursday (Nov 7).
The task force comprises task force chairman Eddin Khoo, Dong Zong deputy president Datuk Tan Yew Sing (who is also Malaysia-China Chamber of Commerce president) and Muslim Islamic Youth Movement of Malaysia president Mohamad Raimi Abdul Rahim.
It was reported that the report was earlier put on hold to allow its policy team to meet with parliamentarians later this month.
Dr Maszlee said they had completed their meetings and the task force was wrapping up their findings.
Asked to clarify on the engagement in Sabah and Sarawak, Dr Maszlee said: “As far as I am concerned, they are working 24/7.
“They are showing highly dedicated effort in finalising everything,” he added.
Asked about an estimation as to when it would be ready, he said: “Let me ask them.” -The Star
