Minister unaware of single stream education system questionnaire


PUTRAJAYA: Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak is in the dark over an online questionnaire seeking a response from netizens on whether there should only be a single stream education system.

MCA president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said he met Salleh before the Cabinet meeting today, and was informed by the latter it was neither his nor the ministry’s decision to have the survey.

“The minister (Salleh) told me that this questionnaire was not the ministry’s decision and that he was not aware of it.

“He said this incident will not recur and has promised his department will investigate the matter,” he told reporters after attending the Cabinet meeting.

He was asked whether the single school system was brought up at the Cabinet meeting.

Liow, who is also transport minister, said Salleh had also suggested that he would engage more Chinese government servants into the ministry’s department to ensure the sensitivities of various groups could be taken care off.-Bernama
