- Pakatan Rakyat (PR) has pledged that all deserving top students will be awarded scholarships if they take control of the federal government as it has tens of billions of ringgit available to fund all top scorers.
- The party and its PR partners have previously granted numerous awards to top students based on their performances.
- This move is to change students' preference to earn a living outside Malaysia after being disappointed on the unfair distribution of scholarships.
- Aside from that, PR hopes to retain and attract the country's immense talents not only through the above effort but also through the establishment of the Penang Science Council and the Career Assisted Training (CAT) centre, which deals with unemployment and shortage of skills, and the formation of a minimum wage package.
