Campus polls: UKM students cry foul
Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) students have alleged that university authorities were interfering in the campus elections which commenced today.
When contacted, one student claimed that authorities from several residential colleges were trying to sway voting in favour of candidates from UKM's Kelab Aspirasi - the 'pro establishment' faction.
"In some colleges, the (non-Aspirasi) candidates and their agents were barred from entering the polling areas. They are not allowing the agents to monitor the polls or participate in vote-counting later," he said.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
