The government will conduct a thorough study and evaluation on the Unified Examination Certificate (UEC) before tabling at the cabinet level to seek approval for its recognition.

Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said he will bring up the matter to the Education minister to further analyse the details of UEC recognition, reported The Borneo Post.

“I understand the importance of the UEC recognition that has yet to be resolved to this day. Furthermore, it is an issue close to the heart of the late Sarawak Chief Minister Adenan Satem.

“I will ask for the Education minister to carry out an in-depth study on the recognition before presenting it to the Prime Minister Najib Razak so he can bring it to the cabinet and come up with a solution,” Zahid said.

He highlighted this at the Chinese New Year celebration gathering at Imperial Hotel in Kuching today.

Zahid was confident that state ministers in Parliament such as Nancy Shukri (Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department) will follow the matter closely and represent the voice of the Chinese community in Sarawak when tabling the recognition of UEC in cabinet later.
