Youth and Sports, Education Ministries reviewing political literacy programmes

THE Youth and Sports, and Education Ministries are reviewing and reorganising the political literacy education programmes to attract the interest of youths, following the implementation of Undi18, according to Deputy Youth and Sports Minister Adam Adli Abdul Halim.

He said in order to achieve political understanding, the ministry would ensure that the concepts, modules, approaches and strategies of the programmes are interesting and fresh.

“The literacy programme is to produce quality voters with critical thinking who see politics through objective lenses.

“For me, this political education is a matter of the national constitution, the jurisdiction of an MP or an assemblyman because we want to produce a Madani society that understands the function and role of the government as well their role as voters,” he said in Kuala Lumpur today. – Bernama, January 27, 2023.
