PM HOPES A DECISION ON WHETHER PPSMI - 2

RHOMA AHMAD RAZALI

 

Earlier, the prime minister had attended a medical outreach programme organised by Langkawi Youth Power Club, National Heart Institute and Briged Sukarelawan Media Prima-NSTP in Sungai Itau here.

Prior to this, Dr Mahathir had said that a Cabinet committee had been formed to study the matter due to objections from the public on reintroduction of PPSMI.

He said the decision on whether PPSMI will be reintroduced will follow the majority opinion of the Cabinet.

The policy was introduced in 2003 when Dr Mahathir served as Malaysia's fourth prime minister (1981-2003) but was reversed in 2012.

Dr Mahathir, 94, is currently in office as Malaysia's 7th prime minister.

Dr Mahathir is a strong proponent of PPSMI, believing that it is crucial for Malaysians to remain  competitive in a fast-changing world
