As the fifth installment of the Bersih rallies is set to be held next Saturday, Universiti Malaya Student Representative Council chairperson Hazwan Syafiq Haznain slammed that demonstrations may embroil the nation in disorder rather bringing a new dawn.

However, pro-Mahasiswa group Universiti Malaya Association of New Youth (Umany) rebutted Hazwan’s statement, saying he was associating himself with BN’s agenda and this would sacrifice the students’ right to rally.

In a Facebook posting yesterday, Hazwan uploaded an edited photo consisting of chaotic scenes at previous Bersih rallies, such as police car being damaged and tear-gassed rally-goers.
