Four Youth Parliament motions to go up to Cabinet

KUALA LUMPUR: Four motions from the Youth Parliament on areas  such as youth development and the violence in Myanmar's Rakhine state will be brought to the Cabinet, said Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin.
The four motions were on strengthening the reproductive and social health program (PEERS), the advancement of electronic sports (e-sports), Malaysia's need to continue pushing for international attention on the violence in Rakhine state, and the setting up of a youth hub in each Malaysian state.
"The Government takes note of all the motions tabled and debated in the Youth Parliament and I will bring them up with Cabinet and to the relevant ministries and agencies," said Khairy.
He added that the Government is always supportive of any sporting events, as long as they are beneficial to social development and national economy.
"We are, and we are aware of the multiplier effects that can be created by e-sports," said Khairy.
He added that the the Rohingya issue is very complex and must be handled through constructive engagement as this would be most effective in the long run
"As for," he said in his winding up speech at the Youth Parliament session here on Wednesday.
A total of 48 representatives debated the four motions over two days.
It was also the first time a local motion from a representative's state was brought up for debate.
The Youth Parliament for the 2017-2018 session comprises 138 representatives from all over the country.
The two-day programme, which began on Tuesday, was the second meeting for this session.
The Youth Parliament allows representatives to take part in debates similar to those in Dewan Rakyat.
