Khairuddin said the university welcomed the amendment on University and University College Act 1971 to give more room for students of institutions of higher learning to be involved in politics.

He opined that the amendment was timely and in line with the transformation effort of the government on human capital development for a better future.

“However, the freedom given should be used rationally and ethically."

“Students need to be responsible for every action,” he said, adding that a related code of conduct of UNIMAS had been reviewed to complement the amendment.

The code of conduct would enable UNIMAS to play a greater role in guiding and educating its students to have integrity and good values when involved in politics.
