Syed Saddiq: No to blacklisting PTPTN loan defaulters
GOMBAK: Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman says he does not agree to blacklisting National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN) loan defaulters.
“I disagree with the policy to blacklist those who took up PTPTN loans, who are unemployed graduates or who are not earning a decent salary,” he said.
However, PTPTN chairman Wan Saiful Wan Jan said Putrajaya would have the final say on whether to impose the ban, which he added was one of the most effective means of getting defaulters to service their loans.
“There are many parties involved, so we need to involve the youth, their parents and teachers in this public consultation programme,” he said at the “Are you Okay?” mental health forum at International Islamic University Malaysia on Friday (May 17).
Commenting on the case of a teenage girl in Sarawak who committed suicide following an Instagram poll, he said that mental health issues among the youth must be addressed.
The Health Ministry mental health section’s public health physician Dr Nurashikin Ibrahim, who was present at the event, said the suicide rate in the country was about 1.2 to 1.5 per hundred thousand in population.Read more: The Star
