Politics on campus under watch

PETALING JAYA (April 26, 2007): University students are being monitored by the managements of their universities to ensure they do not get involved in any political activities during an election.
The monitoring is done particularly through election monitoring committees, set up under a secretariat comprising deputy vice-chancellors in charge of student affairs.
For every by-election and general election, a committee is set up comprising representatives of the universities’ student affairs departments.
Secretariat chairman Prof Datuk Dr Mohd Wahid Samsudin, who is also the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia deputy VC for student affairs and alumni, said students are prohibited from associating themselves with any political party, regardless of whether it was from the opposition or the Barisan Nasional.
“The Higher Education Ministry has instructed us to look at student activities to ensure they are not actively involved in political parties or activities,” he told theSun.
“It is an offence as stated clearly under Section 15 of the Universities and University Colleges Act (UUCA) 1971.”
