Kuala Lumpur: The UEC (Unified Examination Certificate) is now recognised by Malacca, the fourth state to do so after Sarawak, Selangor and Penang, the Chinese press reported today.Malacca Chief Minister Adly Zahari announced the long-awaited good news for the Chinese education fraternity when he officiated the 105th-anniversary celebration of Pay Fong High School on Saturday.

He said the recognition was given without any condition.

At a media conference later, Adly said following the state government's recognition of UEC, holders of the Chinese independent school certificate will be recruited into the state's civil service.

"We (Pakatan Harapan) are fulfilling our election manifesto," he said, adding that the state government had just hired a Taiwan graduate who is also a UEC-holder as the chief executive officer of Malacca Biotechnology Corporation, a state-owned company.

Asked if UEC-holders can apply for admission to tertiary education institutions, the chief minister said the recognition is limited to the state administration for the time being but will be extended to other areas in the state in due course.

Earlier at the school function, Adly announced the allocation of RM250,000 for Pay Fong High School, the sole Chinese independent school in the state.

He said the allocation, which will be made annually, will be increased when the state coffers are strengthened.
