In a pivotal move aimed at involving the Malaysian public in shaping crucial legislation, the Health Ministry has introduced an extensive survey to solicit citizen input regarding the Generational End Game (GEG) bill. This bill, officially named the Control of Smoking Products for Public Health Bill 2023, has been generating substantial attention and controversy due to its intended ban on cigarettes and vape products for those born after 2007.

Read Story In Detail

The Malaysian Health Ministry has taken a groundbreaking step by launching an all-encompassing survey to engage the public in shaping the Generational End Game (GEG) bill. This bill, also known as the Control of Smoking Products for Public Health Bill 2023, is under scrutiny for its plans to restrict the use, purchase, and sale of tobacco and vape products for individuals born after 2007. The survey, accessible via the MySejahtera app, is open to all Malaysians and focuses on gathering diverse opinions about smoking-related health risks and the GEG provision.

Health Minister Dr. Zaliha Mustafa revealed that this survey aims to gain insights into public views on smoking-related health hazards and the proposed provisions of the Control of Tobacco Products for Public Health Bill 2023. The launch of the survey comes amid doubts surrounding the bill’s second reading in the Dewan Rakyat, as the ministry postponed a briefing for MPs, as well as a media briefing without providing specific reasons. Although sources suggest a delay in the bill’s tabling, the ministry has yet to officially confirm any such postponement.
