Applications for FT Youth Assembly extended to May 31, says Dr Zaliha


KUALA LUMPUR: The application period for the Federal Territories Youth Assembly participation is extended to May 31, says Dr Zaliha Mustafa.

The Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Federal Territories) said the two-week extension from the original closing date of May 17 is to allow more youths to participate.

"So far, we have received 200 entries even though we will only be accepting 65 youth representatives.

"This is a commendable achievement, so we want to welcome more applications so that we can select youths from various backgrounds to join this session,” she told reporters at the Kuala Lumpur Federal Territory-level National Youth Day 2024 celebration Saturday (May 18).

She said the newly-established FT Youth Assembly involves 13 parliamentary constituencies, including Putrajaya and Labuan, with each constituency to be represented by five youths.

The programme targets local youths between 18 and 35 years old residing in all three Federal Territories (Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Labuan), with its first and second meetings to be held in July and November, respectively.

Commenting on the action to be taken against private landowners who refused to maintain trees posing risks, Dr Zaliha said the department and Kuala Lumpur City Hall would look into the matter.

She also gave assurances that the existing guidelines for addressing ageing trees will be improved to prevent the recurrence of uprooted tree incidents. - Bernama
