KUALA LUMPUR – In recent weeks, the opposition over the recognition of the Unified Examination Certificate (UEC) has reignited among Malay rights groups even though the current government has not indicated interest to move forward with the issue.

Malay rights umbrella group Pembela has been airing its opposition on its social media platforms, with its chairman Aminuddin Yahaya saying that giving the UEC recognition is akin to “a betrayal of our grandchildren, our ancestors, the education system and the country’s harmony”.

Some UEC opponents say this issue is a litmus test for newly minted Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob and his administration.

For now, Education Minister Datuk Mohd Radzi Md Jidin, who was retained from the previous Perikatan Nasional administration, has not brought up the UEC issue, besides clarifying last August that UEC holders have been accepted since 2011 for the Bachelor’s Degree in Teaching programme (PISMP) specialising in Chinese language at teachers’ training institutes.
