Youths seek Budget 2023 funding for voter education, help in getting jobs
5 days ago
PETALING JAYA: Youth groups have called for increased government funding for voter education programmes and for job search initiatives.
These are among the top items in their wish lists for the 2023 federal budget.
Undi18 co-founder and education director Qyira Yusri told FMT she believed the Election Commission was too understaffed and underfunded to do a proper job of encouraging young Malaysians to vote.
“Just look at the overall size of the EC relative to the millions of people it has to reach out to,” she said. “It is incredibly disproportionate.”
