Campus Elections

Dear readers, our writer Hariszuan also better known as Harisz has made an official statement late yesterday evening that he would be standing for the coming Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Campus Elections. Harisz a second year Political Science student has noted that his decision to stand for the elections is to change the perception of students regarding various issues. Among others he pointed out that the previous student council was doing nothing that they should be doing. Harisz deemed the achievement listed out by the previous student council a to be the duty of the University and not of the student council.

He said ” we are paying for all that infrastucture and amenitites, it is the responsibility of the University to provide us all that. Why does the student council have to ensure the Univerisity does it’s job? The student council is supposed to concentrate on the improvement of the students welfare and intelectual growth”. He   also said that some of the efforts mentioned by the student council, was nothing more then mere rephrases, such as the college fees which has increased significantly over the years.

Harisz realised that he would stand a slim chance of winning as the University authorities have always favored their own  candidates whom operate under the label ASPIRASI. When asked if he would be joining the Gabungan Mahasiswa (the opposition body in UKM), Harisz said that there is a possibility. Harisz also criticized the new pre-requirement that all candidates must have attended a program organized by the university in order to stand for elections. Harisz will be attending the program from the 1st of January till the 4th of January 2009. He also noted that there is something amiss with the way the university is rushing the elections after being silent for a whole semester.

When asked if it has anything to do with the upcoming by elections in Kuala Terengganu, Harisz said there is a probability. The nomination date is currently rumored to be on the 4th of January 2009. The oppositions in the University are very concern about the pre-requirement to attend the program which is said to be some sort of malicious attempt to identify the opposition candidates prior to the nomination date. As of now Harisz maintains neutrality and will wait and see what the program is all about.

Harisz also mentioned that he would bring about ideas that are consistent with the Diskopi’s constitution in upholding democracy, humanity, justice and rejecting all form of corruption and injustice. Hariszuan main concerns right now is in getting the attentions of the non-Malay voters and the first years. He said that it was crucial for students of all race and creed to realise that race based politicking is pointless and has to stop. Diskopi will be following close the UKM campus elections and will keep you guys updated on the happenings.

  3. jangan libatkan politik dah la.. politik is useless.. politik umpama beruklitik yang akan melompat dari 1 dahan ke dahan yg len utk mncari pisang. asalkan prut sendiri kenyang beruk tersebut sangup wat apa je.. xkira mana2 parti.. aku harap ko leh jd ktua yang bukan hanya tahu bangkang je tp tahu wat krja..

  4. politik di mana-mana sahaja. apabila lebih daripada 2 orang, politik itu akan wujud.

    cara hidup kita, benda kita pakai, budaya kita itu semua adalah hasil politik, iaitu kuasa pengaruh antara manusia.

    Saya ingin menekankan, politik tidak semesti bersama dengan parti politik. parti politik hanya pentas untuk berjuang, dan entas ini boleh tungga bila-bila sahaja.

    Tapi nilai politik seperti kesaksamaan, demokrasi, keadilan itu harus dikekalkan sejak dulu, kini dan selam-lama!

    Gerakan mahasiswa juga merupakan satu gerakan politik, iaitu mahasiswa bersama rakyat memperjuangkan perubahan polisi ataupun sistem politik.

    Hahahaha… budak UKM bacul, berkomen lagi. Porah, buat malu budak sains politik. Politik diumpamakan dengan beruk? ini sah tak membaca. Kurang-kurang bacalah dolu tulisan-tulisan kat diskopi ini.

    Kalau tak suka baca, pi maen jauh jauh, jangan duk tayang komen bodoh kat sini. Kalau malas nak membaca, jangan tunjuk bodoh, lagi baik berdiam diri. Ape nak buat, bebudak UKM katakan.. kalau nak banding dengan UIAM hbuk pun tak sampai.
