BTN dissolution motion rejected

The Penang state assembly today rejected a motion by a government backbencher to pressure the federal government to dissolve the National Civics Bureau (BTN) course and review the courses at the National Institute of Public Administration (Intan).

Speaker Abdul Halim Hussain said that although the matter involved public interest, it was not urgent because the cabinet had promised to revamp the curriculum for the course.

The motion was moved by Ong Chin Wen (PKR-Bukit Tengah)
