Maszlee said four new MPPK members would be appointed after amendments to the law.
The MPPK 2018-2021 which came into force on Aug 1, drew flak from various quarters including the Islamic Academy of Sciences Malaysia (Asasi), over the appointment of some of its members who were deemed to be 'not qualified'.
However, Maszlee believed that MPPK chairman Tan Sri Wan Zahid Mohd Noordin, a former education director-general and former MPPK Chairman of the 2010-2012 session, would advise him accordingly.
He added that while MPPK deputy chairman Tan Sri Yong Poh Kon was a corporate figure, his expertise would help improve graduates' employability in industry and reduce unemployment.
Maszlee said the five other MPPK members, namely Datin Noor Azimah Abdul Rahim, Datuk Satinah Syed Saleh, Datuk Sukiman Sarmani, Brigadier General Datuk Yusri Anwar and Prof Ruzita Mohd Amin, also represented key stakeholders in the education system.
