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.
