MCA Youth calls on the Minister in the Prime Minister's Department (Law and Institutional Reforms) Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said and the government to reconsider the proposal to maintain life imprisonment as an alternative to the mandatory death penalty, instead of imprisonment of not less than 30 or 40 years and a minimum 12 strokes of the rotan.

The topic of abolishing the mandatory death penalty sparked the public’s interest in 2018 when the government announced plans to abolish capital punishment.
