Legislator Che Sai Wang has accused the government of failing to create meaningful pathways for young people to join its various advisory councils and consultative bodies.

According to the Portuguese-language Hoje Macau, Che says the issue has not progressed since he first raised it in the chamber in April last year.

Despite promises, “We regret that neither the constitution of the Consultative Council for Municipal Affairs at the end of 2022, nor the composition of the Consultative Council for Community Services at the beginning of 2023, fulfilled the commitment of the Macao SAR” he said.

Lamenting what he described as the “absence of fair competition” in the appointments system, Che is calling for greater transparency.

He also criticised the practice of appointing certain individuals to multiple consultative bodies while leaving out more qualified advisers, Hoje Macau said.

Che has called on the government to create a list of potential appointees to advisory bodies based on professional expertise.
