MCA Youth urges Sports Ministry to reinstate allocations to youth council

PETALING JAYA: MCA Youth has urged the Youth and Sports Ministry to reinstate allocations to the Malaysian Youth Council (MYC), so that it can continue to nurture future leaders.

Its chairman Nicole Wong Siaw Ting said before Pakatan Harapan came to power, various youth bodies received government allocation annually, especially for operations and activities via the ministry.

However, Wong said under the Pakatan Harapan administration, the ministry halted allocations to MYC, resulting in many youth organisations throughout the country facing fund shortages and affecting operations.

“The Pakatan government only gave allocations for operations to youth organisations which joined under the MYC in 2019, whereas Budget 2020 totally omitted any form of allocation, ” she said in a statement on Thursday (March 12).

Wong said MCA Youth had high hopes the minister Datuk Seri Reezal Merican Naina and his deputy Wan Ahmad Fayhsal Wan Ahmad Kamal would reinstate allocations to MYC.

“As Reezal was once a committee member of MYC, he surely will comprehend the true situation in MYC, ” she said.

Wong added that it was essential for the ministry to listen to the voices of youths.

“We need to assist young adults to understand the standpoints and views of the government, in addition to listening to their concerns and helping them to resolve their problems, ” she said.
