PETALING JAYA: Wanita Pakatan Harapan has urged the Government to ban all child marriages, saying that such "unions" would only cause more problems and set a negative path on the development of children in the country.

In urging the Women, Family and Community Development Ministry to review its steps to ban child marriages, its chief Zuraida Kamaruddin said that women NGOs observed that most of these marriages do not last, with the average being five years.
