Student representative councils (MPP) at all public universities will be given the full freedom in determining their own leadership without the involvement of the university’s administration beginning this year.
The Education Ministry said in a statement yesterday that campus elections will also be reviewed.
"The campus elections coordination meeting between the Higher Education Department, Student Affairs Office and the Legal Officers of Public Universities today decided that the methods of implementing the elections be reviewed to enable the students to handle the process in a transparent and independent manner.
"MPPs will bring about an autonomous sentiment, with full freedom of expression, to indulge in politics or even in activities without the involvement of the university’s management,” according to the statement.
All public universities are free to implement their respective PRK after making several necessary amendments in line with the initiatives of an independent, fair and open election.
